The rust issues are prominently with the earlier Indian built Dusters.Concerns over possible euro 6 delays and worries over rust are making me have a wobble. Why should I wait for my Duster Laureate Prime and not spend the money on a Ssangyong Rexton or Tivoli instead?
You have to read between the lines of the 3 star rating though, as it was marked down for poor pedestrian protection and a lack of electronic stability control at the time of the test...Not for crash performance!You should also consider the Duster has a industry low 3 star ncap rating and that waiting list you mentioned also extends to the spare parts. Also there's a new Duster on the horizon which will effect the used prices of the out going model
If we were Dacia dealers we might try to convince you that buying a Dacia was the right choice for you... to get a sale and earn commission from your purchase, However most of us on here are Dacia owners, Who have all chose to buy a Dacia for our own reasons.That's not helpful! I was hoping people would point me towards reviews saying the Ssangyong was awful!
ive always said "carbuyer" was an excellent reference guide ????????If we were Dacia dealers we might try to convince you that buying a Dacia was the right choice for you... to get a sale and earn commission from your purchase, However most of us on here are Dacia owners, Who have all chose to buy a Dacia for our own reasons.
At the end of the Day the choice of new motor is yours.
But this may help you...
Neither of these points is relevant to the UK market as 1) they've always been fitted with airbags here, and 2) ESC is now a legal requirement for all cars in all EU markets, so even the most basic Sandero has it now.Hello
Just to reaffirm nightsuperstephen's comments on the 3 star ncap rating, this link brings to to details of the test, on a 2011 vehicle. As he says it was marked down for a number of reasons, and looking at the equipment on the test car, it seems not to have a drivers airbag, and and did not have ESC fitted. http://www.euroncap.com/en/results/dacia/duster/10968
The Tivoli looks ok in the flesh! Just getting increasingly concerned with Dacia. Reading issues with people waiting weeks for parts and dealers themselves don't seem to know anything about Euro 6. Apparently they are not even in build yet and dealers don't know when they will be. It's also the way that extras are added on rather than factory built... so how well the parking sensors are fitted depends on a bloke working at Sunderland docks and I suspect he isn't wonderfully motivated or well paid!On looks alone... I'd take the Duster every day of the week! Don't know if a HDMI port would actually be that useful in a car? Unless you've got your 50 inch full HD in the back somewhere?? Anyway, we are a Dacia family so maybe be slightly biased!
