Common Faults and Problems with a Dacia Duster

Not many vehicles can boast to be the UK’s least expensive SUV and get a New Car Award at the same time (Parkers 2019), but the Dacia Duster did just that. For less than £15,000 you can get a package which includes some of the following: manual air conditioning, Sat-Nav, 7” touchscreen Media Navigation, rear view sensor camera, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Owners of the Dacia also praise its spaciousness and comfort, not only for the driver, but the passengers as well. Here we’ll go into why it might be the perfect vehicle for you and take an honest look at some of the faults and problems of this stylish SUV.

Dacia Duster – common faults

No matter if you are considering buying new or used, you need to keep an eye out for some of the problems that have been reported by owners of the Dacia Duster. First on the list is electrical problems which are most often caused by malfunctioning fuses. This is an easy DIY fix which our Dacia Duster spare parts and accessories catalogue can help you with. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can just buy the part and your local mechanic will replace it for you at little cost. It is not uncommon for AdBlue to cause issues with some cars, this is also the case with the Duster. Even if you have enough fluid in your car, the check antipollution signal might come on unexpectedly. Many car experts recommend replacing the AdBlue pump and switching to another additive brand.

Beeping noise – or no noise at all?

Some Dacia owners have commented on various issues in online forums regarding the horn not working at all, or only when the car’s lights are off. This unusual defect can be remedied by replacing the car air horn. Make sure to check if it’s still under warranty and if it is, take it to your car dealer. Other Dacia owners reported strange beeping noises when they accelerated the vehicle. This is a standard safety feature to alarm you to the fact that you may be exceeding the speed limit.

Dacia Duster: All-wheel drive light for off-road use

If you opt for the four-wheel drive version, you can expect the Duster to handle light terrain. This is perfect for outings with the family and you can even bring your mountain bikes for more “off-road” fun. To ensure safe transport of your bikes, make sure to install Dacia Duster roof bars. In addition, there is an electronic hill descent and hill start assist as well as a multiview camera system (standard in "Extreme", optional in "Comfort" and "Prestige"), which allows you to check in front, behind, and to the side whether your are in danger of hitting something or driving into a deep hole.

To buy or not to buy

Although the Dacia may have its faults, many consider it their best and least expensive vehicle purchase. Dacia has done a lot to create something like a feel-good atmosphere in the interior. For example, the seats are now noticeably more comfortable and have new upholstery fabrics. The sound insulation also seems to be much better. However, the fact that savings have to be made at this price is noticeable in the details. The door frames are not covered and the mat on the boot floor looks a bit cheap. That is easily remedied by replacing it with one of a variety of car mats for the Dacia Duster.

For pragmatists, the Duster can definitely be a recommendation. However, you should stay away from the "Access" equipment, because even essentials such as air conditioning are not available here, even at extra cost. Customers who opt for the tested diesel or one of the turbo petrol engines with 131 or even 150 hp get the best driving comfort. The latter can now also be combined with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The 91 hp base model, on the other hand, serves more as an eye-catcher for its price list.
