Duster
#1
James May likes Dacia but Ive never took much notice before until I saw an ad
I would consider it instead of another MK3 next trade in.
Duster
One of our local garage has taken a franchise (seemingly a different one each week since rover fizzled out)
I had a quick ponder and compared it to the van I currently have
Price and running costs appear similar and depreciation would possibly be in line
I would think Dacia would be eager to please in a new market so reliability and customer service shouldn't be a problem
Load capacity is less but my blingo runs around empty 80% of the time anyway.
Slightly more off road would suit me and the 4x4 option is very useful on occasion.

Any opinions on this?

The prices look very good so the first thing I would be looking into would be Renault / Dacia Customer Service.
We can only hope that the introduction of these more affordable cars starts a price war.
If Dacia ownership proves to be a good and affordable experience,then I would think about getting one for Private Hire use ( if they meet the spec required )

Something to google away at-I would let the 'lab rats' buy the cars first and iron out any issues before I parted with any dosh.
And whats with the banana splits thing?
That show used to scare the sht out of me and my sis -the head that came out of the wall was the worst.

Fifth Gear rated the Datchia, too.
I think they look cool, would certainly like a closer look.
As for the Banana Splits, they still give me nightmares now 35 years later. That programme was seriously messed up.

Thats Bingo- I think Citroen must have named the Berlingo in his honour, and my fav was the mad thing coming out the clock and was called Cuckoo !!!, lol.
Wots the problem with The Banana Splits, anyway ? I think it's just Sour Grapes.
The scary head on the wall was called Head ( on the wall ) !!!!!

I used to like the little girls playing the guitars, they were bad.
