Is the Honda CR-V susceptible to DPF problems?

I am retired and need a car with a high seating position. I want to buy a diesel Honda CR-V, but only do 7000 miles a year. Would a diesel give me DPF problems?

For this sort of annual mileage better not to buy diesel. Go for an HR-V 1.5iVTEC CVT-7 or the new Toyota C-HR hybrid: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/honda/honda-hr-v-2.../ and: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/toyota/toyota-c-hr.../ Or a Suzuki Vitara S 1.4 Boosterjet auto: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/suzuki/suzuki-vita.../

Luxurious and more efficient than before. Was the softest riding and most stress-free SUV under £30,000. 1.6-litre i-DTEC is impressively refined and quiet.
Highly practical and versatile thanks to 'magic' seats. Strong i-DTEC diesel.
Outstanding ride, road holding and handling. A pleasure to drive. 1.2 petrol or 1.8 hybrid. Solid build quality. More power and performance from 184PS 2.0 C-HR from January 2020. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now standard.
