    I used Duster manual transmission from 2014 -2019. I have driven it for 220k kms in 5 years and a I used an average mileage of 19kms/L. I had no problem with my car in 5 years. I am quiet satisfied and again I purchased Duster in 2019 June, this time AMT diesel. So far I have driven 42k kms in 22 months. If you maintain regularly as per company norms, I can say Duster is a very good vehicle.

    Duster is to my notice is the only car that amazed me from Renault family. . I am a crazy driver who loves spending like whole day behind the wheels... I get a lot of confidence in highways espicially attacking corners or city drive when i am in a rush .. my pops bought 85ps rxz model... but 110ps was an if statement.. engine noise is a minimum.. the dashboard looks oldish with black plastics... infotec need to be rallied to match the market. bootspace is amazing considering its segment... talking about body outlooks its has simple but muscular outlooks bumps at the front n back secctions of the body where tire protudes..driving over in city all i can say these bumps need to be talken under notice or else scratches might happen .. this what makes me unhappy .. height is adjustable.. one advice if u r driving in highways keep the seat height low to enjoy it better. suspension is good till now to my notice

    Maintenance cost are very high. But if you are performance oriented person then this car is for you. It doesn't offer top class features. What it gives is good ride quality, high stability, confidence to perform what to like and mileage. Yes, my car gives mileage of at least 16 in city and 18-19 in highway.Features oriented people please neglect this car this car is not for you. Place explorers, this car is for you. Make it dusty😜.

    Very well balanced in terms of its price, Power, Fuel efficiency, Maintenance and overall external design proportions.The ground clearance, Boot space, And ride quality is beyond compare.Features particularly safety features, Interior design, Cabin noise insulation could have been better.Overall a rough and tough car to handle indian conditions and equally suited while driving for a formal occasion or a family picnic.
