Found 13th May 2014
I had a letter through the post from city motors bristol. Apparently they have a limited stock of brand new Dusters Ambiance 1.5dCi for 10995 and the laureate 1.5dCi for 11995 both at 4x2 drive models compare that to the online price for a brand new model there is a saving of £1000 and £1500 respectively.
if you want a different colour I think there will be added cost.
I think this is a good so thought I'd share.
All the dacia haters, hate the car not the post

good price, I believe this is the same engine as used in Nissans MkII Qashqai which sells for 16K upwards

yes I have test driven one of these and they are a good drive

It's the 1.5dci engine made by Renault - a good one. Good cars.

More like a Dacia Dustbin, i'm no car snob (I drive a skoda) but even i wouldn't drive that. Like u said, i will hate the car and not the post.

Ahh the Dacia Ruster

Good news!!!!!!

Have they just got a load of pre-registered ones in whatever colours they have or are you ordering one? Seems a good deal, people make jokes but people who have them seem happy with them and they get good reviews

more like Dacia Ambulance!

good price, finally a hot deal rather than just good value of RRP

Sounds like you're exactly a car snob...Dacia is a budget brand, no more, no less...have you actually driven one?

Beware if they are pre-registered, then you will effectively be the second owner, which will affect resale values slightly.

Still a bargain price for the car and trim/spec.

Why would I want an Ambulance? Ohhhh... hang on...

Must admit when I first read the title I read it as "Ambulance" and I thought "Bit of a niche market, but HUKD'ers will buy anything.."

I think he made it quote clear he's not a car snob...

Im no car snob either but I would never, ever buy one of these, whomever does needs their heads looked at. The residual value alone should make people run a mile.

This brand makes Fiat and Renault and owners appear savvy.

Skoda's are nice cars. I love the look of the Octavia, though I'm scared to buy one incase everyone thinks I'm a taxi!

I've not drove in a Duster. I saw one the other week on the road and I actually thought it was nice. When you consider it's the same price as a 4x4 that is three or four years old, it's not too bad a deal.

they did say brand new followed by a test as well which says they are brand new so I assume they will be unregistered.

I don't think starting your sentences with "I'm not a car snob but..." does not prevent you being a car snob.

That being said, I'm not a car snob, but I wouldn't be seen dead in one of these. The people at the country club would laugh at me, and my chauffer would probably quit. I'll stick with the Rolls thanks

I am a car snob, and I'd rather have syphilis than buy a new Dacia. Or a renault for that matter.

You better be prepared.

What kind of cars do car snobs buy?

I'm not even trolling. Cars are not something that I've ever had a big interest in. It's always been about getting to A to B. I don't like types of cars such as the Ford Ka etc, but I'd drive one if it saved me money.

I like the look and price of some Chevrolet cars - though people keep talking about it being a bad badge. Is it really worth paying thousands more for a badge?

It baffles me sometimes that people would spend thousands more in order to impress other people with their car. It's the old "my dad can beat your dad in a fight", "my peepee is bigger than your pee" etc.

Who ever mentioned residual values... I was under the impression these are some of the slowest deprecating new cars you can buy... given they are so cheap in the first place.

Dacia Dustbin, that's a good one lol.

What a POS this car brand really is. £11k for vomit? Buy a used car for that much.

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.

You could probably buy a used Ferrari or a used Porche at that price too. Regardless of quality, you are still comparing a brand new car to a used car.

I'm definitely with you in that I'd prefer to buy a car that is a few years old, though if you are looking for a brand new 4x4 or corssover car; the Duster would save you at least eight grand over something like a Nissan Qashqui and thirteen grand over a Toyota Rav 4.

I'd probably go for the option of buying a more premium car that is a few years old, but if you are someone that wants to buy a car new, then I'd rather have an extra ten grand in my pocket.

I used to sell these. the dacia range give no problems at all. very reliable, hard working car, not the best driving car but for the money they were great value, to get discount off them is fantastic. must be pre registered but that is no problem.

Voted cold, does not come with A/C!!

Have any of the haters here actually driven one? I'm in the market for a new car and I've taken one for a test drive. I won't be purchasing a duster because it doesn't quite meet my requirements however I can't really say anything bad about it after the test drive - its a lot of vehicle for the money.

autoexpress.co.uk/bes…ars

Dacia Duster 94.83% - which incidentally is above some models from BMW/Audi/Lexus to name a few.

Laureate does come with A/C btw

Isn't the big issue with these that the UK models are manufactured in India and not to the same standard as the Romanian models? I think part of their good reputation has been generated in mainland europe but we don't get the same quality here for duster models.

If you need a brand new car there's nothing wrong with this, it will get stuck in the same traffic as everyone else but will cost next to nothing to run. As long as the electrics are well sorted, it's got a good NCAP rating (don't know what it is), there's nothing wrong with the engine (I've got it in my Megane estate, easily achieves 60mpg and nothing gone wrong yet), good car for someone on a budget.

There are downsides to these - they are cheap for a reason :-

1) Prone to rust (especially white ones) - see Honest John.
2) NCAP safety rating only 4* - very low for a modern car.
3) Built in India - poor quality control.

If you can live with that fair enough but there are better options at £11,000 (one year old Golf, two year old Qashqai)

Nope, the QQ2 has a 1.5 DCI but it's a new engine and not the same one used in the Duster.

even if your aren't a car snob why would you throw 11k away on a car that looks like THAT.

I'd rather have a feather duster...cold

I wouldn't worry to much about those guys, you know what they say "there's no such thing as bad publicity"

I am, as ever, grateful to some of the learned members on HUKD for keeping me in the know as to what I should & should not purchase lest I buy something which may result in my intelligence or street cred being brought into question. Your opinions on these matters are a constant comfort and I thank you for taking the time out of your rich fulfilling lives to berate products you neither want nor have any personal knowledge of. Keep it up!
