Why would he give it a relatively negative review and compare it to 15 year old cars if he worked for the company?

Aren't these normally £5999 brand new and unregistered? £500 off for pre-Reg isn't worth it. Should be more like £4999

Hello! I am a fleet manager for a living, I do not own one of these cars but I am invited to days hosted by car manufacutres and have had some hands on driving experience on the open roads in France in the Duster, Sandero and Logan.

They have been hugely popular in France and with employees in our French deivision. I would say they all remind me, except the Duster of say low and medium spec Renaults and Citreons that were about in the late 1990's - early 2000's.

They drive OK, nothing like Fiesta or anything else remotely modern. They are a bit thin and noise insulation is not great. Seats are not all that thick nor are they comfy for long drives, but the if your getting out of a 2001 Astra, you will probably not notice. Do you see what I mean?

They are cheap and simple, I would not say they were crude and certainty not un-driveable as regular use cars. Take the Suzuki Jimny, it is crude and rather awful drive on the road, the Dacias are not like that.

The point I would raise which is that if you want really basic transport and want it new then these tick those boxes. However, by British driving expectations I would of thought a used example of another car would be much better.

The Duster is actually bit agricultural to drive but I can see the appeal if you want something between a Defender (for road manners) and 2002 Rav4 for the inside. Probably the pick of the lot IMO.

The Logan estate....if you ever drove the 306 Estate or MK3 Astra estate, you will sort of know what this is like.

My father has one, agree completely with poster above.
Got one.does what it says on the tin.Don't expect a fantastic car but a reliable well built value for money car.So happy our daughter bought one and has done over 30000 in less than 2 years and never missed a beat or anything went wrong. Three year warranty ,no mots or tyres to replace a no brainer.

Ah I deleted my earlier comment by mistake!

Anyway, seems these sell for around £3000 at 3 years old. So £2500 for 3 years to get you around. Around £70 per month. Not bad even compared to leasing.

No not the base model.

This has electric windows, central locking, body coloured bumpers and a stereo just to name a few extras.

As a long term second car this is a deal. If you can service it yourself and can follow a Haynes manual then there is no reason this couldn't last you 10-12 years.
It will become the go anywhere car. Supermarket Friday evening, Tip on a Sunday morning, camping.

This applies to my requirements for a car, others may have different circumstances:

I've never looked closely at a Sandero, but I did spec and price up a Duster when I was choosing my current car.
The base models are very cheap but really sparsely equipped, and when I spec'd up the Duster with better equipment (as far as you can go with these) then the price was only a bit less than similar class cars from established car brands after I'd negotiated discounts. Then after residual value is considered the Duster became an uneconomical choice. And Dacia weren't offering much in the way of discount.

I do think they are still good value at the price of this deal though, after all, it can never really devalue more than £5,500 in its lifetime. A new £20K car will lose that in 12 months.

When I was working in Turkey last year, one the drivers had a Duster that he drove me to work in a couple of times. I was thoroughly disappointed in the ride and general build quality of it.

The other drivers had KIA Sportage and Hyundai IX35's and they felt like a Rolls Royce by comparison......

I've not been inside a Sandero yet but expect something broadly similar....

A German mate of mine has a Logan estate and he really likes the reliability of it.
5 Years / 60,000 mile warranty, not bad at all
I've just seen Dacia Sandero Stepway and I love it

5 Years / 60,000 mile warranty, not bad at all



Hmmm Dacia's own site say it's 3 yrs with a £395 option for the 5 yr one. If they are throwing that in, then it's even better!

"Dacia Warranty

Every new Dacia is covered by a standard 3 year / 60,000 mile* Warranty package. Under the terms of this Warranty, your Dacia dealer is able to repair or replace, without charge, parts that are found to have a material or assembly defect that is recognised by Dacia. Your new Dacia also comes with a 2 year paintwork warranty, as well as a 6 year anti-corrosion warranty."

I have the Logan (estate version of this). not the fastest off the mark and is a bit noisy on rough roads. I have the 1 litre turbo version and must admit it's been a great car. done a good few trips around the country in it with 2 adults and 2 kid as well as full boot and roof box and it is amazing on the motorways. it also has great pulling power and will do hill starts no problem fully loaded. It cruises on the motorway very comfortably at 70 and I get 58mpg. It actually feels better than my old 1.6 Vauxhall Meriva with similar load. my mother in law has one of these that was new in September and the road noise is a lot quieter than mine but apart from that they are very similar to drive.
Aren't these built on the old renault clio platform? Might be better if there was a 182/197 option
the butt of tg jokes personally think its a ok car.
Well I don't know of a better [u]new[u] car for the money and they generally do OK in owner surveys (compared to many prestige brands even). Heat added.

No, this is the mid-range Ambiance. So the RRP is £6,795. The extra warranty is worth £395. Dacia dealers often don't discount so £1,695 off for a pre-reg is a great price on an already cheap car.

That IMO is a very decent discount. For retail sales of a not a new model and one that is not being terminated anything more then 10% is getting good! Exceptions apply of course.

Agreed, this is almost 25% off. Provided the 5 year warranty is included without the need to use their financing. Although I suspect you do have to, it's just hidden in the small print somewhere.
