Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Dacia Duster 4x4?

Not all versions of the Duster come with parking sensors, so you’ll need to check the bumpers and bodywork for damage. Also, make sure alloy wheels (if there are any fitted) don’t have any kerb damage.

The interior isn’t the best part of the Duster and its hard plastics can be scuffed by rings and general wear and tear.

If your Duster was built after December 2018, you might find that it comes with an updated infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.
