I've ordered a 2WD Access. Want something cheap and cheerful, and not worry too much about it getting damaged. At £9k, it's a bargain! It is basic, yes, but that's part of the appeal. Less to go wrong, especially with the kids and dog clambering in and out.
I have ordered the basic 2wd Access. I put down £100 deposit online, but then the dealer asked me for a further £500 deposit "to secure my delivery slot". Has anyone else had this? Delivery was originally scheduled for 21 February but now seems to have slipped to March.
I will go for the extended warranty which is great value but the other Dacia accessory packs look expensive. Will source my own stereo, reversing sensors, towbar, mats etc.
My main regret is that aircon is not avialble on the less expensive versions.
Did you pay the £500? That to me sounds like a con. You can order online and not have to pay that extra. When I visited my Dacia dealer last weekend, delivery time was quoted for March. Then I read that no-one would be receiving their Dusters before then anyway (need to find that link!). 7 year warranty looks like very good value. The accessory packs, yes, do look expensive, but you can pick and choose your bits from here
Don't forget they also tested the pre-release model. There is always the possibility that they'll test a revised version with ESC, it does happen sometimes. Renault may insist on it as their cars bnormally get 5 stars.
We bought a car for her to drive around in a few weeks back. 20 minute test drive on a variety of roads, it was more than enough for me to be happy with the car. With a new car, you really just want to see how it performs and handles. With a second hand car it's all about getting it up to temperature and checking everything works.
