2007 Dacia Logan Preference 1.4 MPI GPL from Romania
Very affordable car. Simple and reliable
Nothing at all.
I bought this car new and until now I am very satisfied. The running costs are very low. The car has an LPG kit mounted by the manufacturer and the fuel consumption is great (7 - 8 LPG liters/100 KM).
75 HP is not a lot but you have to take into account that the car isn't very heavy. Overall the engine delivers a good performance and is well suited for city driving.
When driving on the highway the engine has to be pushed beyond 3000 RPM in order to deliver enough power.
The interior is very simple but there is a lot of space for all passengers. The trunk offers a good amount of space, even more than larger sedans.
The ground clearance is very good (that is very important when you live in Romania :) ) so you can park all most anywhere.
The headlights are great. I did not expect such good headlights performance from a car that cost me 7500 EUR new.
The suspension looks comfortable. The road handling is always safe but some times you have strange reactions due to the fact that the suspension is too soft.
Anyway the most affordable car on the market in Romania and in europe I think.
For guys with big family I recommend the estate version. It has enormous interior space and is very practical and cheap to run.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

This engine doesn't sound the most advanced, producing only 75HP for a 1.4 in 2008. My Nissan Micra 1.3 produced this amount of HP (if not more) 15 years ago. As far as I know the Dacia is joint with Renault, so I'm guessing that this is an older Renault unit. But how old exactly?
