Wouldn't worry about driving one, but I would worry about the very serious rust issue these have had, I presume that's why this offer is on...
Personally, I wouldn't have any faith in Dacia's now, and I was seriosuly considering one for the wife...
Done themselves no end of harm with the way they handled that...
Did they not offer you a straight swap for her?

Joking aside the only benefit I can see with this car is its cheap for a brand new motor.

The downsides are it may potentially rust badly (with documented evidence)
Owners are having to resort to wiping rust away (not sure how this solves the problem) and greasing everything
Its...well.....subjectively styled
Its not very economical
It doesn't have particularly low road tax
Its made by Renault
If you want any luxuries the price goes up.........very quickly

But everyone's different and if spending 10k on this floats your boat, great, you go for it, and enjoy it.

For me I'll stick to my 2 year old Kia with 5 year warranty still remaining.

Will you people get your facts right Dacia are no more built by Renault than Nissan are built by Nissan and my 2 Dacia's that I have owned have both been as well built if not better than Vauxhall, Ford, Fiat etc.
Admitted the trim is not soft touch but I don't stroke or cuddle my car, but is durable and scratch resistant unless you take a ice pick to it, and is easy to keep clean unlike some car interior trim. No need to go to Halfords for half a dozen cleaning products to cope with different surfaces, just some water from the tap and a sponge/cloth. Cheap as chips. You do the maths.

Ok, I've done the maths, taken on board your arguments an come to the conclusion that £9.5k buys you a rusty basic ugly new car. Beating Vauxhall, Ford and Fiat on build quality is hardly a ringing endorsement. Quick look on Autotrader bags you a 2013 Kia ProCeed 1.6 CRDI. 13K on the clock, £20 road tax, all the extras you can need, 70+MPG (Allegedly)...................

You do the Maths

Yes approx. £9,000 below car supermarket price when new and only 3 doors, so, allowing for the dealer to make a profit, the previous owner lost in less than one year more than the price of this car. Oh and why did the previous owner want to get rid of the car?

Really????? Ok well how about a brand new (63 plate) kia soul with 7 year warranty for £10k bluetooth, aircon, stereo etc etc

63 plate will be at least 6 months old. It will have just been sat in a field as nobody wants to buy them. I'd take the Dacia of the two. So by the time you have financed it it will probably work out a similar price for a similar spec.

If it so good car as many thinks here and heats up this thread ,so why I have seen just few Dacia Dusters on the road in 2 years...?
BTW I would never even look at this car as potential buy.Even in Easter Europe where I travel a lot, they don't buy this crappy Dacia which would suit their tight budget. This says all...rubbish car, none the less.

Official sales figures both for the UK and the rest of Europe say you are wrong and official sales figures are a better barometer than " A bloke down the pub ".
The reason you don't see so many Dusters in Eastern Europe is because it's not the car they want but they do buy loads of Sandero and Logan cars.
So you would never look at the car so how can you give a balanced opinion, you just come on here to vent fury on something by your own admission you know nothing about. Read all the reviews on Dacia cars written by people that know what they are on about. Yes they do say they have misgivings but all seem to agree that for all their bad points they are still worthy of consideration.
France they are all over, Germany voted in JDP customer satisfaction report 2nd most reliable car Audi was 1st in 2012, I haven't seen 2013 figures yet.
So you know more than all these people do you? Good for you.

So buy it, then at least I can see someone driving it here in the UK, as I cant find anyone driving it on the road X)
Germany....ha ha ha. Driving there every month, know many car dealers,have loads of friends and they buy only German made cars, so hide under autumn leaves with your comments for Dacia being 2-nd most reliable car in Germany,this is absolute Bul@@@t.

P.S. I did buy one in 2010 when they first came out and I was more than happy with it, perfect car for perfect price. I only changed it when the Lodgy came out because that serves my purpose better, and I am just as happy with that, again perfect car for perfect price. I am a retired motor mechanic and have owned in over 50 years all sorts of makes and models and the worst I had was a Mercedes that I owned for less than a year before I could nt stand it anymore and sold on.

Like all modern diesels this will be fitted with a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) making it completely useless if your car use is mainly centered around doing the shopping or running the kids to / from school.


I agree that if all you are doing is a school run twice a day then a DPF equipped car is likely to be a bad idea but it's not as black and white as you make out for other drivers.
Plenty of manufacturers had issues with their first DPF engines (including Renault) but have since ironed out a lot of the issues in later cars and they can be just fine with a motorway speed run every couple of weeks.

You definitely need to do your research on the specific model and engine that you are considering buying and see if it's good or bad.
As an example of this, the first Skoda Superbs with DPF added had the filter placed two far from the engine so it struggled to get to temperature and was very problematic. Later engines that were designed from the outset to have a DPF didn't have the same issue.

I have no idea where the Duster is on the scale of good to bad regarding DPFs

For £11k you could get a used Lexus IS of a BMW 5 Series, cars that won't break down 5 days of buying and would out last the Dustbin.
Having just paid £315 for an exhaust sensor (£500 all in with diagnostics, fitting etc at a specialist not main dealer) and £200 (part only) for a thermostat (electronic) and £210 per tyre it's not buying a BMW but running one which is the real challenge. So many times I'm told 'they all do that'. A new battery needs coding in to the car (circa £100 + £200 for battery) and so on.
An exhaust back box for an IS is over £650 with fitting (admittedly stainless and damaged by reversing into a kerb)
Fine cars but they are far from economical to run.
Buying a car is only a part of the equation...........

Agreed.

My friend recently bought a beautiful Audi TT second hand for around £5,000. Still runs fantastic, but if anything breaks, he is looking at an expensive bill.

ii don't think its about being a snob its more to do with being either very well off or a know all or both.
Like all modern diesels this will be fitted with a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) making it completely useless if your car use is mainly centered around doing the shopping or running the kids to / from school. So unless you do a big commute everyday or make regular motorway journeys then forget buying a modern diesel as they are not suitable for Town or those with a low annual mileage use, nor are they suitable for a commute in stop start traffic.

So in short, if you do less than about 12k miles a year with the majority of this mileage being MOTORWAY / DUAL CARRIAGEWAY use, then you shouldn't even be looking at a modern car with a diesel engine.

Be warned, that ignoring this advice is likely to find you with a blocked DPF, which often requires regular dealer level regenerations (About £100 - £200 a time) and eventually could lead to a premature DPF replacement (upto £1000), the DPF will also require replacement at some point in routine servicing as it is a consumable, so expect to pay a hefty servicing bill at around the 76k - 100k mark, assuming it hasn't already become blocked and needed replacing long before then!.

This isn't just personal opinion or hearsay, its a fact that has been highlighted on BBC Watchdog, its also given as open advice by the AA, and failing that, if you want to see how widespread / expensive the problems are, then just google "DPF Failure" and "Dpf Blocked" and you'll see hundreds, if not thousands of tales of woe.

Its also illegal to remove the DPF, and since March it will fail the MOT if its been removed, so don't even think about this route as a workaround anymore. Simply buy a petrol or an older pre-dpf diesel.

My one concern is it's rubbish ncap score of only three stars I wouldn't put my kids in anything less than four stars plus from the side it looks **** my neighbour has just bought one and the inside is suprisingly well built I guess this would appeal to someone who has no interest in cars so not for me mind you I think the sandero looks alright I would go for the cheapest one they do something appealing about a good honest basic car even though I drive a disco and a five series
To all you pretentious gits commenting on this, it's £7K!! For that amount if money you are not getting a brand new VW, Range Rover or BMW. As for reliability it's brand new and there is this thing called a warranty, if it breaks down you bring it back and they fix it. Don't forget Renault also own Nissan, one of the most reliable cars going. As for the legendary VW reliability the one I had, that cost over £25k didn't like moving out of the garage and was back at VW more times than I care to mention. It was also dull to drive and not that fantastic to look at either. At least you know what you are getting with these new Dacias! Get over yourselves people, these cars are fantastic value for money.

think you should look up dacia rusty on google. one had rusty arches at 3 weeks old

That was a problem on some earlier Indian built Dusters that has been rectified and as I understand from customers on Dacia forum all cars affected were either rectified, exchanged at no cost to customer or a full refund given. Try getting that service from Ford etcetera.

The Indian built Dusters (which we get in the uk) do occasionally suffer from rust which isn't ideal.

I think the Logan we get is Romanian built and doesn't have the same problem.

We looked at these before we bought our Santa Fe, when you add the extras in, to bring up the spec, the price works out more than the Santa Fe and has less features. Cheap car if you just want something that moves, with no refinements and little safety.

According to Hyundai website the cheapest Santa Fe is over £25k but the Dacia Duster is no where near that price even with the extras.
last year we paid £22400 for a Santa Fe premium 7 seat, with Bluetooth and tow bar. We added all the extras on to the Dacia and it came out at over 25k and the salesman in Stockport would not move on the price. Hence they did not get the sale. As I stated earlier if you want a basic car with basic safety feature not a bad price for a car

I've just tried the dacia configurator and with every option plus the 5 year warranty it comes to 18.5K at list price for the highest spec - I cannot see anyway you could get it to 25K.

To be fair the duster does not compete with the Santa Fe, its closer to the ix35

Funny, I did the same adding tow bar etc, thought I was going mad so thanks for the confirmation.

So has anyone actually bought this car? What did they think?

I have booked a test drive for this Saturday. I effectively could trade in my current 2 year old corsa and get one of these for the same money.

Can anyone honestly say that French influence on motoring has brought any benefits ? Apart from making things look and feel flimsy and cheap I cant.

In 1924 Citroën produced Europe’s first all-steel-bodied car, the B-10 and in 1934 Citroën produced the Traction Avant, not only the world's first mass-produced front-wheel drive car, but also one of the first cars to feature a monocoque-type body. Later in 1955 the revolutionary Citroën DS was the first European production car with disc brakes.


F W Lanchester produced a car in 1902 with disc brakes and in 1953 2 years before Citroen Dunlop produced the first disc brakes in this country. So where do you get your facts from Spod, not from the truth that's for sure.

After seeing all the Dacias whilst touring East & SE Europe last summer and how well they seem to survive on their often rubbish roads, I'm inclined to believe these are pretty well built, but they do lack in extras and looks, but for a working vehicle who cares. However I believe the newer Dacias are not built to the same standard as the older ones, according to a few Slovaks and Bulgarians that I talked to, may just be the normal resistance to change though.
A low buying price, but I suspect depreciation will be massive. A second hand higher quality SUV may be a better 'deal'. Do your figures carefully!
total junk....buy Japanese...

Have you read the comments on the other Dacia thread, a lot of the comments are also saying that it is not a deal.

What kind of deals can I post here?
Any deals can be posted, but the site is all about the hottest deals available in the UK, so run a price comparison check before posting and ensure its not been posted within the last 4 weeks or itll be deleted as a duplicate post.
Deals can be any product or service people can buy for a bargain, including two-for-one sales, reduced prices, and clear out sales.

Think the problem most people have is with the interpretation of the word bargain most don't see a normal price as a bargain only something below RRP where as others see cheap meaning bargain. When the site first started it was always below RRP but seems not any more:(

All the Apple bashing aside, does anyone know the exact process to get one of these?
I'm flying from LHR T5 next week.

Or - if the play deal is real - how to get one from there cheaper. When I tried I saw nowhere to add a coupon, and I'm wary you'll get the TCB.

Just call the store a few days before you travel and reserve one. However, as another person said, 16GB is not really enough on an iPhone. I would spend the extra on the 64 or go for an android phone with a memory card slot.

I got my Sandero stepway laureate Tce last week. Very happy with it Very nippy no problems on busy junctions and roundabouts.
Ok the switches for windows are on central console not the door and some road noise. Minor points Built in Sat nav is very good as is media player.

Late because I didn't have enough time? Daft argument. Most people commute usually 25 to 50 miles each way. So you plan for an hour each way. Instead it takes 2 and a half because of tailbacks caused by someone who has a car with slow acceleration that basically is scared to pass lorries, tractors etc. They come out of junctions so slow you have to slow right down to less than half of the speed limit.
A normal guy will work 12 hours. Travelling because of cars like that cause an extra 3 to five hours in total. This can make it 17 hours. You say leave yourself more time. How much? Another two hours? Taking it to 19 hours. You then get home, eat and go to bed.
Leaves you 4 hours sleep time if you are lucky and then you are tired and driving day after day. You don't think that's dangerous?
Like I said earlier, the type of people that get these cars don't give a stuff about anyone else.
They know what they are getting before they buy it. They just don't care.

Are you a troll, or do you actually believe this? I ask rhetorically as the Ignore link is now clicked. Things you might wish to take into account whilst considering that rhetorical question include: all the things I mentioned in my last reply for starters, backing up your claims with facts, rather than some spurious statements about 'normal people' working 12 hour days, that 'most people' have a 25-50 mile commute to perform such a job, that any 50 mile journey should take an hour maximum. You made a comment about presumption earlier - please apply to your own posts.

Please also understand that in practically every developed country, many millions and even billions of pounds have gone into research regarding traffic congestion, route planning, travel times, queueing, saturation, and everything else under the sun which concerns people undertaking a road journey. Care to take a guess at the number of studies that came back with: "It's simple - slow drivers are doing it all"? Actually, don't bother - given your presumption above you'll change the question into an irrelevant straw man argument instead.

You may also wish to consider your work/life balance, as it's making you sound grumpy on message boards. Ta ra!

Lol I luv this site always full of know it alls. To any1 who is wanting a dacia duster don't let this site put you off. I've had a dacia duster for a month now and it is by far the best car I have ever owned and I wouldn't change it for anything. Just speak to any owner and they will only have good things to say about it.

as car makes go, Dacia is at the bottom.

Anything to back this up? Dacia claim otherwise... http://www.dacia.co.uk/faq/

Q. Are Dacia cars reliable?
Our simple range of cleverly designed cars uses proven technology and our vehicles are built to stand the toughest conditions across the globe. Maybe that’s why Dacia finished in second place, just behind Audi, in the 2010 J.D. Power Customer Satisfaction Survey, in Germany. In 2011, Dacia was also voted “Europe’s Most Reliable Car Brand” in a survey of 29,000 car owners across 5 Western European countries.*

Elkay
Google car reliability reports. Dacia, Kia, are at the bottom of the scale (top are Toyota, Volkswagen). Also, my garageconfirms that spare parts are more expensive than bigger brands, such as Ford and Volkwagen. What looks cheap now can become very expensive with time.

Maybe YOU should try using google.

First hit brings this page:

My advice would be to get 1 year old Yaris or as previously stated a 3 door Mitsubishi Colt for £6995



Do you have a link to this one year old Yaris for £6995?


£6995 Yaris

Great, a 3 door Yaris which is the old, superceded model, and is almost 2 years old.

Must try harder.(_;)
interesting deal, but I still can't get my head around buying a bargain car new. when you can get something a bit flashy but old.
of course there is the hoped for niggle free driving but is that all?

To be fair I actually think this car looks rather nice! and I drive an alfa romeo 159 most of the time! Which I think is the best looking car ever!

Went to the Renault garage in Burton today, they had a Duster on the forecourt, it looked alright.

Picked up brochures for the Sandero, includes ABS, EBD, EBA, ESC across the range as standard. Price for a Sandero Laureate diesel specced up is £13,295 OTR

Shame they don't have a 3 door model.

When you realise that a Nissan Quashqui Starts at £17,600 and rises to £23,495 with all the extras, It makes your statement a little bit silly.
All car manufacturers have a base model quoted in advertising and then under the picture is a disclaimer " Model shown is an all singing all dancing premium model priced at £9,000 above the base model.
Unfortunately due to the fact their is no room for manoeuvre between the cost of manufacture and the selling price Dacia have had to put the start price for the base model up to £9,495 which is still thousands below all the other equivalent models of other manufacturers.
£19,000 is still a good price for four wheel drive car with all the available extras and a 7 year warranty.
Before you say £19,000 for a Dacia go troll the internet and find all the positive comments about Dacia cars from the people that count, that is owners and press reviewers alike, it won't make you change your mind as I can see from your sharp terse comment.
I'm on my second Dacia by choice the first a Duster for 21/2 years and now a Lodgy for 18 months and not had a problem with either
so I suggest you keep your comments to yourself and let the potential buyers decide for themselves.
Several members have commented that they were unaware of Dacia and after reading on HUKD about them gone along to a dealer and bought a Dacia to POWER to HUKD for that.
19000 for a dacia

whilst 9000 is good for a car by the time you get the spec you want youll pay alot more

That's interesting. I presently spend £100+ a year for AA membership. IF the Dacia AA inclusive deal (with the extended warranty) really is the complete package, as the salespeople believe but cannot substantiate, then the warranty would be worth having. If the AA deal is only the basic cover it would be necessary to think again.

The most important thing is to discover what these warranties DO cover of course, or don't. I've read of Kia owners having real problems getting faults sorted.

I'm pleased to hear you have had no trouble with your car though, that corroborates the report of an aquaintance of mine who has had his for 135000km with no problems.
To get the Vauxhall warranty for 100,000 miles you have to keep it, the second owner has to pay for it to be transfered to him/her and the price to retain it varies with a to complicated formulae for the average punter to understand, so to get the benefit you have to keep it, how many people want to keep their car for more than 3 to 4 years. The same hard to understand formulae type warranty applies to a Kia, go on line and see if you can understand it. Not sure if the 5/7 year warranties on a Dacia are any clearer but just take the standard 3 year warraty and get the extended warranty with a good warranty company, Quentin Willson seems to recomend a good one. I've had my Duster for over 2 years and no problems, so the warranty is only good if you need it. you won't get a better deal unless the dealer gives his cars away (none Dacia dealers that is) but if you want another brand go buy it, it's called freedom of choice.
