Haven’t heard of Dusters having such issues. Does he use it on very bad roads regularly? Which city is the vehicle at?
Ya even my car has sam prob it is just som kind of tak tak sound wen u go on pot holes its a 5min job to sort it but will reoccur if u drive it rashly on bumps Renault needs to sort this out many have the sam and only complain
That’s interesting feedback – rattling doors after a while. Thanks for sharing Sujeeth and Kushal. This is something Renault needs to look into and fix.
@sujeeth we live in ahmedabad and the roads are very good if we miss some sort distance, we have doen door setting for 3 times but after couple of km ( 1500km) sound comes again and again. not even bad roads but if we turn the car or break hard on flan flat road, sound still coming like doors are half colse.
@Roshun sir, i also booked duster 110ps rxz but for this reason i didn’t take delivery since march 5th. my car is there but afraid for this prob and waiting for some more feedback. is it regular with all duster or only some duster are suffering with this door prob.
To be frank, I’ve not heard too many Duster complaints so far, and this is new to me too. I’ll ask around and see what feedback other Duster owners have. That’s the beauty of such forums, we depend on feedback from actual owners to help other buyers. Let me get back to you on these issues – will also check with the company.
@Roshun sir, thanks and let me know, my final date for take delivery is 28 march. or it will be end at i20.
hi guys, finally made my payment for my duster. going to take delivery on 28th march.
don worry about the issue it is very small and can be fixed easily…
Finally got my own DUSTER today.
Congrats Khushal…!!! Have a great time with it for a long time and drive safe.
@Roshun sir, i was right many duster have door rattling prob and here is some fix from team-bhp forum. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-drives-initial-ownership-reports/125576-courtship-renault-duster-rxz-6.html#post3081450
Thanks kunaal for the link
DONE 2100km from 1 month and have some issue as i mentioned before. DOORS, yes there is some noise starting coming out. maybe after 4000 or 5000km it will giving me a rattling doors for sure. Music system keep closing it self automatically, don’t know way. and last drive set is loose ( going forward when pressing breaks hard).
As far as I know the Duster RXZ variant comes with an integrated 2DIN Audio system with USB, Aux-in & Bluetooth along with 4 speakers. Even the official website does not claim that it has an 18 cm touch screen, this might be a dealer offer. Where did you hear about this?
i got this news from TEAM-BHP forum, they are talking about some update in interior of upcoming duster after month.
This option is there for the Duster – it’s an optional extra that you can get from Renault instead of the standard system.
going by brand name its liva., there is engine noise considerably audible inside the cabin, fit & finish is also not good. as far as price is concerned a few more thousands & top spec figo titanium can be bought. i’ll put my money on ford figo though there might be some problem locating service stations.
As far as value for money is concerned – the Ford Figo is more value for money because of the features, fit and finish it offers at the price, compared to the Toyota Liva.
Figo is more VFM – but Liva is much more spacious. If space is crucial, then Liva but otherwise, Figo is more VFM.
Guys engine and long term ownership which one would you prefer?
Figo is a Value for money with decent interior quality compared to Liva, which has not very much good interiors. Performance of both cars is equally good. Go for Figo it will be good for long term.
Both should be fine. I don’t think there is anything to choose between the two, both have proven solid engines. Long term ownership, I think the noise and interior of the Liva will begin to feel unsatisfactory after a few years.. but I am just guessing there. Lots of Figo owners have no complaints about it after a few years, so that’s a safe bet.
for long term, u will get better service and resale price of toyota liva
Figo is more VFM than Liva
Different brands have different prices. So far I’ve only seen Dieseltronic and Pete’s in action, so can’t really comment on any other brand of tuning box. Hopefully, someone else will have some insight into this.
Dieseltronic is manufactured by Karthik of Race Dynamics based in Bangalore. Their products are competitive, reliable and economical. One major benefit is that in case service/repair etc is required, shipping and return won’t take as much time as the other brands because none of them sell directly here and are sold through distribution channels.
Congrats on your buy…Drive hard but Ride safe…Regards.
how has this affected the mileage?
Hey Shrang, good to know you’re enjoying the dieseltronic box. Take care and drive safe. Also keep us updated on how its performing – from time to time. Cheers!
so far i’m not feeling a big change… on full tank and high.. it was 680 in 36-37 litrs…
now its 640… thats it… but there is a big change in the performance..
for sure.. Roshun Bhai…
NOW WHT IS THE TOP SPEED ON HIGHWAY
its 173 Km/hr… last time it was 160 Km/hr… but there is no difference in mileage …
173 on which road u wer able 2 attain?and how long
not so long.. its was panipat fly over.. i was coming from chandigarh… time was around 3.30 am…
gd,but i hav touched 172 with my swift on yamuna exps highway,and also taken a snap simoultaneously,and almost for 15 secs i was able 2 maintain that speed,without any alteration,
How much has the Dieseltronics costed you including installations.
installation is nothing.. it is just a plug and play device… you have to just unpluged the fuel rail socket and plug the DT socket in it.. cost 19,999…
i have installed cosworth air filter in my swift vdi. i can feel better punch than stock filter after 2000rpm in any gear at any speed. want some more fun so can you suggest it for my 3.5 years old 70000km swift vdi
Yes kaushal… swift is fun to drive… you can put tuning box in it.. i have seen results with swift and they are amezing…
NOW WITHOUT ANY ALTERATION MY SWIFTS TIMING OF 0-100 IS 13.02SECS,BUT WITH SOME VARIATION IN ICU,EXPERTS CLAIM 12.5 SECS,BUT ORIGINALITY IS ALWAYS BETTER,ENHANCEMENT DOESNT WORK IN LONG RUN
Race chip is better as the price is lower and you have the choice to increase or decrease the power settings manually also if you are not satisfied with the stock settings of race chip.my friends have it in their car too.no reliability issues too.
please elaborate on the difference between diesel tronic and race chip in terms of price and long term reliability??
Rohit i have tested almost all the chips available in the market. best one is pete’s. but its lil expensive. if you want to choose between racechip and diesel tronic. go for diesel tronic.

Thanks shrang… but can vw sc people can know by any change that there is some modification done in case i opt for some replacememt under waranty???? plz comment….. thanks in advance
We advise you to remove the unit before taking the car to the service center for a warranty claim. Once removed, the unit leaves no evidence that it was installed.
Please i can have price for diesel tronic for polo and where can i get it in new delhi???? does it effects the life of the engine components
its 19999. and you can get it from performance auto noida sect-15. buddy just install it, and feel the difference.
good to know that u r enjoying tuning box in your polo tdi.. how old is your polo?
Old swifts awesome looking car.. the new swift is more easy to drive with soft steering.. but for few it looks awkard from behind..
OLD SWIFTS FUEL TANK IS METAL,NEW SWIFT IS PLASTIC,OLD SWIFT ACCELERATION IS VERY GOOD WHEN COMPARED 2 NEW,BECOZ OF EURO NORMSALSO NEW SWIFTS BODY WEIGHTS HAS BEEN REDUCED TO 5 KGS
There are technical differences apart from general weight reduction and cost-cutting issues which is normal in the industry with every successive generation of cars. The most important differences are that the new Swift gets a fully-loaded ZDI version and that the back seat is better. I also find that the new Swift is a slightly more refined and…[Read more]

@salman khan,GOOD DEAL, MILEAGE OF PETROL SWIFT 10+12 IN CITY,AND 15-17 ON HIGHWAY
Thank you every one for ur replies
Bro XUX W8 varient is best, Storme comes after & Duster comes when u only want Handling & fuel economy.
At the end as u said u wanna but it before December then i am afraid that u will get XUV and Duster because of long waiting period. I booked my Duster after 2 days of launch in july at Amritsar & still waiting. Storm Could be available to u in…[Read more]
if ride quality is the first thing u are looking for…..just drop out the xuv…..its got an average suspension which u dont expect in suvs…….especially for bad roads….XUV will make u feel every bump in the road…..as for storme…..wudnt trust on this one……ive had real bad experiences with TATA cars……duster seems the best…[Read more]
Wait Ford ecosport is coming
ford ecosport will be limited within 4 adults only, just see the size of it and u will notice its close to Premear rio, best for ride and handling is DUSTER and for VFM go for XUV5oo W8 FWD. i m still hunting for my new suv but cant make my choice between DUSTER and XUV5oo
At Rs 15 lakhs, you should also consider the new Safari. It is a much improved vehicle now. get full details here in our test drive http://www.cartoq.com/expertvoice/tata-safari-storme-road-test-and-review/ XUV500 will be a good option too. ecosport and duster are cool, but they are not that value for money if you compare them to XUV500 or Storme.…[Read more]
For five people, I wouldn’t recommend the Duster – it’s too cramped. Safari Storme or XUV500 W8 would be your best choices here. But for ride quality and handling, the Duster is better.
Safari Storme VX will be the best for five people family with enormous boot space and comfort also solid built quality. I don’t know why people compare Duster with Safari it just like comparing a overgrown kids with an adult even it doesn’t a qualify for term SUV.
soon it will go down again…..
something new and its fun to drive factor works for duster
scorpio is always scorpio…. u r right sandeep.. it will go down
scorpio——— the muscle suv
If you are looking for sheer power then Scorpio is the king! It look and drive is more of a SUV.
scorpio to Ghoda hai yaar….. kya baat hai scorpio ki.. Duster vaster sab bakwaas hai….
I think the best selling suv in India is Bolero not scorpio
This will only go up as look and quality matters that is why people are paying more for Duster than Scorpio
duster is not gonna come down in near future….
XUV500 itself is a VFM product by M&M. All the variants are very well priced. Check the feature list compare both W6 & W8 variant. Whatever features u want in ur car then go accordingly to that variant.
yes xuv5oo is itself a VFM but u can go for w8, coz it has all the goodies we need those days, going for AWD is not a good ideas as per my thinking, no one doing offroding more than 3 days of years.
Yes MNM has made it very carefully and is very good car to buy. It is so VFM that any variant is VFM. But the 2WD W8 variant is much better than W6 as it is loaded with features.
Thank u all for u wothfull advices
