Default Re: 2016 Renault Duster Facelift & AMT (Automatic) : Official Review

My RXL AMT Duster has done 9000+ kms and I notice that when the vehicle is driven in a bumper to bumper traffic for a while, the clutch gets a little jerky. This is specifically noticed when the vehicle comes to full stop and when driven forward, the entire vehicle jerks. Its something like over releasing the clutch to move the vehicle.

Is this due to the vehicle has come close for its servicing?. Did anyone face a similar issue.

I have exactly the same issue in my RXZ AMT. I have 17,500 on ODO and I noticed this after 2-3 months of delivery and it is still there. However I ignored it till now since this does not happen regularly. In fact I would say I experience this once in a while. I'll keep a close eye on this and see how often this happens going forward.

As it happens with me randomly I don't think it has got anything to do with the service. I would suggest since you are close to the 2nd service raise this to the service adviser.

Hi All,

Just had a question on the reliability of Duster 110 PS engine. Quite a lot of folks seem to be complaining about injector failure for the 110s. Just trying to understand if there is a pattern here. Are there many owners here who has never had this injector problem for their duster?

The ownership experience itself has a pattern. For me, the facelifted Duster is a completely different vehicle from the first batch of Dusters which were sold. There is one thread exclusively for the fuel injector issue,

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...r-issue-3.html (Renault Duster 110 PS - Fuel Injector Issue)

Also, see the Nissan Terrano ownership threads and go through the Dacia Duster forum, there is a pattern for the problems.

@Deehunk - Are you suggesting that the facelifted duster doesn't have injector problems and other issues that the first iteration had?

Yes, the facelifted version has a lighter clutch, few reported problems with injector failure(replacement is debatable), brake pads last longer, no problems with the high pressure pump.

Thanks thisissoumya, I took the vehicle for second service and told the service manager about the issue and then few senior mechanics and floor supervisor took the vehicle for a long test drive and notice the same issue.

However, they informed that the jerking in first gear issue is common in all amt's but in case the issues is seen in second and third gear, then is a concern. The Mechanic suggested that in bumper to bumper traffic conditions shift to manual mode. I really didn't buy advise and argued, how in the world would shifting to manual will make a difference?

Anyhow, I even tried shifting to manual and driving. The only difference I noticed is that when I shift the gear to manual, the engine turns a little more responsive and the RPM is raised to 9.5 to 10. Which helps a little in reducing the jerking. But it is not completely gone.

Also, now I have started noticing jerking in second gear as well.

Shiva, the ASC guys replaced the clutch and flywheel under warranty on my BIL's Duster. Contact Ravi Teja at Indiranagar service centre. He has been very helpful in attending all the issues on my BIL's Duster.

Thanks deehunk. I was actually wondering if Nissan Terrano Automatic also has any such issues and found on few websites that that there are lot of complaints on CVT transmission outside India.

What tyre pressure are you all maintaining? Today I saw a sticker or the driver side door indicating the recommended tyre pressure as 29 psi. I was so far maintaining 32 psi within city and 33 psi on highways. Should I consider switching to the Renault recommended 29 psi?

Yes, please follow what the manufacturer recommends for the optimum trade-off between tyre life and performance. My stock Apollo's lasted 70,000 km, and all it's life it ran at 29psi.

Hi guys
Would anyone have an update on the upcoming 2018 Duster ? On several sites online it seems to appear that they are launching the new duster in March, is this true? Thanks

From reliable sources : New duster (with new project code) will only be released next year.
