What usefulness? If that Duster had a front and rear crash guard the owner would have been looking at a new body shell due to chasis damage. The last thing you want is a crash/bull guard.

@Driverrace has given steps to check Remaining Fuel in Duster but the new AWD Model has new Instrument cluster which is different from the one shown in following link :

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offici...ml#post3531103 (Renault Duster : Official Review)

So, can anyone help me with the steps required to be followed on new AWD Model.

The door rattling in my vehicle does not seem to go away. Each visit to the service center brings peace for 2 months, and the problem reappears !

I have already had the door strikers changed. They have also changed the rubber beading once.

The only solution they seem to have is a heavy hammer, and few blows to the striker.

Anyone managed to get this fixed once for all ?

Floating in the same boat! And the tires are being chewed up unevenly too which no one seems to relate to over here.

Mine was the first Duster to come out of the showroom in Kolkata after launch and its still niggle free. i managed to solve all problems with a few rubber plugs. If you have done so, I would suggest you visit some local mech who deals with door locks and seat fittings. Going to the service station to fix door noise is a waste of time. Its just door noise and not rocket science. I am sure you will be able to solve this too. Good luck.

My Duster has run 17K+ KM. No door rattles yet.
I do hear a small squeaking sound from driver side A-pillar (i think). I have not been able to pin point the cause.
This started very recently. Need to check in detail this week.

Occasionally I hear small squeaks due to vibration of air-con vent. Not sure how this can be fixed.

Mostly I am very happy as these occasional sounds are not major irritant.

One issue that i need to sort out soon (nothing to do with rattles/sounds) is the driver seat rail. Its so loose now that, i can feel the seat shift a little when going through curves (hair pin bends especially)

In terms of damage it is nothing unusual in collision generally the plastic bumper breaks and hood folds
however the problem seems to be that cosmetic parts such as bumper plastic skin , front grill etc are outrageously priced.

Friends,

AS I've posted earlier that I'm having issues while playing MP3 files from USB Drive.

After thorough search on net and also following advice from fellow members, could not find any solution.

Today I visited Trident Renault Service Centre to seek their help. They advised me to create folder on Pen Drive and move files to the respective folders.

I created five folders viz 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and placed approx. 50 files in each of these folders.

I inserted PEN Drive into USB Slot of the MediaNav System, it was not showing all the folders. Media Nav was showing only 4 folders viz 2, 3, 4 and 5 and each folder was showing different number of MP3 files.

For example : Folder 2 was showing 18 instead of actual 49, folder 3 was showing 23 instead of 49, folder 4 was showing 10 instead of 49, folder 5 was showing 31 instead of 49.

This type of inconsistency I never found in any of my earlier system.

When I visited Service Centre earlier in the day, and checked with the Dusters having MediaNAV system, all the systems were having same issue.

Would like to know if others are having same issue so that we can raise this issue with Renault India and get the system either rectified or replaced with proper ones.

Try one last thing... Make a folder named MUSIC (in all caps). Place all files in it. Check if the problem still persists.

Some players like the Sony Play Station will not identify files from external storage devices unless they are placed in folders named MUSIC, VIDEO, PHOTO.

@TGO

I've already tried this.

If I put files in MUSIC folder, it makes no difference. Te system displays only selected number of files.

I'll post photo today taken from my computer and then from system respectively for same USB Drive.

No idea on the USB drive based music. But I have been using iPod for 2+ years on the Duster now. Works seamlessly. (In fact thats the other reason why I was a bit concerned, when Apple shut down the iPod Classic)

Is it some thing to do with the formatting of the USB drive such as NTFS, FAT32, FAT16 or FAT12? Check your USB Drive's formatting type and if it is NFTS, try reformatting to FAT32 and then load MP3 Folder try again.

Am keenly interested in this discussion on USB!

I tried a few things, gave up & dedicated an iPod to the duster permanently. That works just fine. Only problem is that you have to remember to take it out when you give it for service - the dudes there whack anything that is not nailed down.

Just letting you know that there is a solution, albeit an expensive one. If you solve your issues, will switch too!

I still prefer the iPod. Simply because it arranges your music nicely, you can carry it and it also nicely integrates to the library. One stop solution. And last but not least, it nicely integrates with the car HU (most important).
