Q. After how many kilometers Duster can come for major problem?
  • My father purchased Duster in 2012 RXZ 110. I sold it in 2021 April. He drove 399667 kms. In this period we had changed one set of complete suspension, electrical wiring, clutch, 4 times brake pads and once brake rotors. 1 time all the wheel bearings at different instances. We had to change AC compressor once. Full alternator set once. Fuel float once. Painted twice.Changed the wheels once. Tyres 3.5 times Great fuel efficiency, comfortable car for Indian roads.
  • The cost of my Duster at 60000 KM has been billed at Rs 50000 which is too much and waste of money. The parts fail very easily and the Service man has std answer its your wish. They dont even share the escalation matrix and are not at all open
  • The highest maintenance cost. The parts replacef fail very easily. And cost of maintenance is very high. Every 10k you go for duster maintenance they charge additional min 10k saying this part jas failed. And worst part is they don't even care for your money. They are the nto business with earning from after sales only. 35k is the cost at 1.2l km servicing. The cost of maintenance is as high as 4 per km . Please don't buy this brand very deceptive.

    I bought Duster in 2016. Yet the engine of this car still gives me the boost and goosebumps on the acceleration. It is comfortable and can accommodate 5 adults because I have a huge family there isn’t enough boot space for us. It gives a mileage of 12kmpl when the tank is full. One thing I don’t like about my Duster is that it can be a little uncomfortable to drive. If you’re going on a long trip of 4-5 hours and I don’t like the tyre rims, they are pretty ugly and old-fashioned.
