Have just purchased what will possibly be my last new car.The Vitara suspension collapsed and I realised that after 55 odd years I had had enough of repairing cars[plus getting down to work on them was getting a problem,although getting up is even worse].I still have the Moggie Van to finish,but that's another story. We had a look at what was on offer and subsequently decided on the Mk 2 Dacia Duster[mid range model].It seems excellent with quite old technology,you lift the bonnet and everything is visable[labelled Renault of course],good build quality and most of the usual extras. We went for petrol this time as I feel the government will begin to put pressure on diesel owners by increased road tax/fuel costs[The Vitara tax went up 25 quid this year].Slowly getting to grips with the turbo charged 1300 and 6 gears.Time will tell!! Still looking for a 33 van though!!..................starider
Hi, The Duster has just completed 3,000 miles and I am happy to report that we are both delighted with it's comfort,drive ability,it's looks and at an average of just over 45mpg[mostly shortish journeys country lanes and hills!,up to over 50mpg on "A" roads and motorways]. Any sign of a 33 Van,please! before I get even older!!...............starider
