Hello Everyone

 

We have had a new Duster for 2 weeks.  I was surprised by the bumpy ride.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

 

Thanks.

Thank you.  We took the car back to the dealer who checked it over very thoroughly.  Nothing was wrong.  They advised that it was a normal ride for that car and that with time, the suspension would soften.  Also that maybe the new tyres were a factor.

It does seem to be settling, or maybe I am getting used to it.  In every other way, we love the Duster.

Have you checked the tyres are not above the recommended pressures.

Might depend on your previous car's suspension characteristics. We 'downsized' from a 2-ltr VW Passat, and after that the Sandero Stepway's ride seemed very harsh. We've got used to it now.

Tyre profile softens the ride when you compare say between the Duster and the Stepway, also the Stepway if the same as our one has the harder "eco" tyre fitted in comparison to the supple M & S tyres fitted to the Duster. My old MB A190 semi-auto use to rattle my teeth as it had hard suspension and 45 profile tyres, great on the motorway but not on country B roads. New suspension will settle and soften up.

Someone's bumpy ride is someone else's normal and acceptable ride.

My Stepway's on 205/55 and I tend to run them at slightly below recommended pressure. Once they've done 8000kms (French confinement is very restrictive) I'll run them as recommended.

 

Large tyre for a light car.
