Agree to @TGO's comments. If you need highway tyres, Primacy SUV and if you need AT then LTX. I was in favour of Primacy. But then moved to LTX (Bangalore is anyway OTR trail! )

I have not done enough yet with it. Maybe 700/1000km max. Overall I am OK. I can surely say it feels more rugged than the softer Latitudes which I had before and which I changed after about 50K.

Dear Duster Owners,

I would like to seek your expert advice in picking up used Duster RXL for someone in the family.

Brief description of the car;

Renault Duster
Variant RXL 85PS
Make 2012
Odo 62K.
Fuel Diesel
RTO Rajasthan

Few questions if Duster connoisseur can answer here;

1. What shall be the apt price?
2. How reliable Renault engines are for keeping until 2-3 lacs kms?
3. Cost of ownership/ service cost?
4. Expected mileage?
5. This vehicle will be used primarily on highways for 100-150 kms daily as a workhorse, how is ride and handling?

Please drop your thoughts and valuable advice on taking this forward.

Thanks Much!!

4 Lac considering it is RxL

Very reliable can easily do 3 Lac km. Clutch change in 85PS models is cheaper than 110 PS models. Depends on driving style.

Quote:
3. Cost of ownership/ service cost?
5k,10k INR alternating at intervals of 10k km. If upgrading from an economy car be aware that everything costs 1.5 times. Tyres, labour charges, wear and tear parts, accessories everything is more expensive. Accident and breakdown repair will be really expensive since parts are expensive. you can buy extended warranty which Renault now offers till 1 lac km and 7 years (whichever is earlier). recommended because usage is high.

4. Expected mileage?
14-16 city / 18-20 highway

Excellent

Should be a good option if you get a nicely maintained car at that price. 65k km is very low mileage.

Mod Note: Please avoid responding withing the quoted post. It breaks the flow discussion for the subsequent responses

This is what some kids in society have done with my Duster. The scratch looks quite prominent. What could be the best solution? Should I claim it under insurance ?
