    My seven year old duster, (which I’ve had from new) has been written off by the garage due to rust underneath. Is this normal? Any suggestions as I can’t afford a new car!
  2. Dacia Sandero Stepway Forum
    Hello, Info about the car and usage: I have a Sandero Stepway 2018. Bought in March. Driven around 6000k so far. Doesn't get used very often. Maybe twice a week for small city trips. We have done a few longer trips in the car, hence the mileage. The car is parked outside with no cover. We...

    I'm new on here; can't seem to find any threads about rust on post-facelift models. However, I've had a white 2017 Laureate for a year (got it brand new) and surface rust is appearing on the inside of the passenger door, and the bottom (around where it meets the rubber seal). Anyone else had a...

    Hi Dacial owners, Recently I discovered a dark spot on the passenger side exterior below the rear door. It looks like a black raised spot, as if it is metal surface that is not covered by the paint. It does not look like it has resulted from the paint scratch. It size is about 1 -1.5mm in...

  8. Sandero Interior / Exterior
    Hi all Dacia sandero 1 year old I could do with some advice on a few minute holes to the body work on front drivers side wing. They are very small almost perfectly round and can see the metal beneath and have a redish colour inside. Is this normal ie stone chips which need to be treated ...
  9. Duster Interior / Exterior
    Hi We have decided we don't want main dealers carrying out servicing on our 64 plate Duster. Not value for money and too many things being missed. My usual mechanic I have used for years will be doing our 2nd service with Dacia parts. What do we do about the anti-corrosion check as I presume...

    Took our 23 month old Duster in to Dealers today to look at the rusty wheel nuts. All rusty except the locking nuts. Been like this for a while too. Also asked them to check the heater fan which was squealing on low setting only. After waiting for an hour and a half advised the rusty nuts are...

    It seems that an alarming number of Dacia car owners are returning their cars for a refund because they are going rusty when they are only a few weeks old.

    Hi All, I have a problem with my new Sandero Stepway TCe90 Laureate which is quite worrying. My car is just a couple of weeks old and today I checked the oil for the first time and was horrified to see that the dipstick was rusty for about 1 or 2 inches of its length at about a third of the...

    I have recently found a small spot of RUST under the lip of the bonnet. Gollum went in yesterday for his first service, and will need to be looked at again for bodywork under the warranty. It seems that DACIA initially wanted to treat the problem the same as they are on Dusters, with lots of...

    So, I picked up my brand new Duster on 27th April, and finally today everything is as it should have been. Brief history: The day after I picked it up I noticed that the trip computer didn't work. Only the last 2 digits of the odometer/mpg/trip/etc. display worked, this only became apparent...
