    A Renault Duster in favour of a Jimny? As an outsider, what DO you think of the Human Race?
    No Sir, I will never touch a Renault again:
    1. Ask any dealer (Renault included) and they will tell you that a Renault loses 50% of its value in the first year
    2. The service levels and after sales support is [email protected] Ask any existing or previous Renault owner
    3. The spares for Renaults are virtually unavailable (my friend in KZN is STILL waiting for a right front headlamp for his 2 year old Laguna - 6 months and counting) and when it DOES arrive, very expensive
    4. The Duster is a Dacia product, and service costs are exceptionally high. (Ask any Logan owner - sedan version and family of the Duster )
    No thank you, rather use the Jimny with a trailer if you need more space, but don't get taken for a ride.

    Yip, & the Nissan Qashqai has a Renault motor, as does the Nissan 350Z.

    Not true. Only the manual A180CDI uses the Renault engine. The A180CDI with the DCT box, as well as the A220CDI, uses Mercedes engines.

    As to the question of Trade/Retail value - I did a quick calculation - please keep in mind this is according to the books - not what die dealers will offer - but look at the % of the Stepway - not bad. I took the Retail price for that year / the new price - so it gives you a % of the new value:


    Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5
    Fortuner 88% 81% 74% 68% 44%

    Stepway 84% 80% 77%

    Koleos 76% 72% 70%

    Fiesta 82% 75% 73% 60%

    I would compare the price/% of the Duster with the Stepway - so that is what you can expect - depending on the future sales

    @Jurry You are right. The good resale value in Europe was the one thing which attracted my attention to the duster. The Stepway as well as the Duster, have a fairly good resale value for one simple reason: reliability. It is the most reliable cheap vehicle. Full stop. However, it will be interesting to see if the reliability is holding for the SA market too. The Stepway seem to indicate that but I am playing safe and wait half year or so. If the complains are limited as in Europe then I am in, otherwise . . . Nowadays there are lots of relatively cheap new comers on the SA vehicle market. The trick is to choose the right one

    What makes the SA market different, in terms of reliability issues? Why are you only comparing to Europe? It has already proven itself in other markets with tough conditions... Indonesia, South America, North Africa, India... It will be fine in SA.

    I hope you are right. I really like the Duster. I think the SA market is more demanding then the average. Further, the SA market is unique in the sense that its drivers are partly European but the circumstances are not. Australia is probably the closest to compare to. Hot, dry, at times dusty roads with long stretches and European mentality behind the wheel - this combination is fairly unique.

    Ok, in about 2 hours, the Renault dealership from Port Elizabeth, will have a diesel 4x4 Duster at the Engen garage in Humansdorp. If you are near and want to go for a test drive, you are welcomed. I will be there

    Nice - let us know - I have driven the 4x2 diesel - but not the 4x4

    As to waiting a couple of months - my idea as well - and next year there might be a Terrano, SX4 and a Mokka to compete with

    Hi All, thanks for all the views, in your opinion is tehre enough space for three teens in the back, i saw the specs show shoulder space of 1400mm which is wider than my 2004 Ranger. i am very much considering to buy the Duster.

    One thing about most Renaults - even way back with the 9 and 11 - was that the rear passengers can either get their feet around the base of the front seats or underneath it.

    Its the same with the Duster.

    It does not look like a lot of legroom at the back, but sitting there - 1.84m - my feet were well in front of my knees. Makes a big difference if you can almost straighten your legs.

    Is dit die 4x4? If so, het jy hom net in 2x4 gebruik? Jy sal nog better kry na die erste 10.000km.
