I am interested in buying the Petrol RXL variant. I am however uncertain that since the petrol sales have been so low, will it affect the availability of spare parts in the future? Also, would this mean compromising on the price when it comes to selling the car? Please advise if buying the petrol variant is a sensible option. I do under 700 kms per month. thanks
The low sales will not affect the spare part availability, however the mileage of Duster petrol is pretty low around 10-11 Kmpl. We will advise you to go for either its diesel version or for upcoming Ford EcoSport.
The petrol variants of Duster and Terrano return a low mileage of around 12-13 kmpl, therefore it is advisable to go with diesel variants. Also, the K9K diesel engine performs better than the 1.6-litre petrol engine.
The procedure of procuring the keys for Renault Duster is a lengthy one. You would have to place a request with Renault service center. A technician would come to your place and unlock the steering and tow it to the service center. Your old lock would be replaced with a new one and new keys would come in 15 days. The cost of the keys would be Rs 4,500 per key. You would also have to take your RC booklet and Insurance papers to your service center.
