A good honest car for daily motoring - but no frills
Original alternator failed twice. At 20,000 Km's and 80,000 Kms - I then fitted a Renault reconditioned alternator and has worked fine for 120,000 Km's.
Battery replaced three times - but not bad for the mileage (200,000Km's)
Front brake disc's replaced twice.
The Dacia is a good, honest, no frill's car. If you don't mind the solid ride, uncomfortable seats or loud cabin (lack of noise dampening on the engine bulkhead and bonnet) - it's real fun.
I have found this car to be very reliable. I change the engine oil and filter every 6,000 Km's.
This car has traveled from Hungary to England and back again without any faults. That was with three adults and luggage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
