Some of these members are having theirs rectified under their warranty, some of them have reportedly been receiving full refunds. We’ve been hearing rumours for a while now that Dacia are going to go “official” on the rust issue, and we’re pleased to report that they have officially acknowledged that there is a problem.
They have released a statement today:
A limited number of Dacia Duster have been identified to have concerns with the paintwork protection. The potentially affected vehicles are exclusively amongst right-hand-drive Duster.
Customers in the population of potentially affected vehicles will be contacted to arrange an inspection and repair, if required. Any repair required will be covered under the Dacia warranty at no cost to the customer and a courtesy car will be provided free of charge.
Dacia Duster owners may also contact their local Dacia dealer or call Dacia Customer Relations on 0151 212 1242 for any related enquiries.
As part of the Renault Group, Dacia maintains a high standard of product quality and is committed to resolving product concerns quickly and ensuring customer satisfaction.
