Going through the procedure the RACV guy did obviously reboots the computer. The RACV guys have obviously had to rescue other Cruze owners who have suffered the same problem as you have.

Holden Cruze 2010: Diesel particulate filter issues

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Aug 2012

It can be harder for city dwellers to drive at the engine speeds needed for the DPF to go through its regeneration process simply because of the traffic snarl we have to contend with. It's something that diesel owners should be aware of, and know what they have to do when the warning light comes on. Check your owner's manual.

Holden Cruze: Expensive oil filter

Answered by CarsGuide 10 May 2012

When we put your questions to Holden we were told that the diesel oil filter costs so much is that "it is designed to assist in the Cruze meeting Euro 5 emission standards. It contains a glass-fibre element, which is significantly different, and more expensive, than elements constructed from more commonly used materials." Holden wouldn't comment on the pricing, which does seem exorbitant to us, preferring to say that dealers set their pricing independently of the company and competitively in relation to the local market. As for the oil Holden told us that "Dexos is the Holden recommended oil, but dealers are currently not compelled to use that oil. If they elect not to use it then they have a responsibility to ensure the product they do use meets the Dexos specifications." Castrol Australia recommends its Magnatec MP 5W-30 for the Cruze diesel and says it is Dexos2 compliant.
