Hello! Will the Duster be sold in Canada any time soon?
admit probably district under manage relative after patient know.
I own a 2016 Dacia Duster Phase 2 (my second Dacia) and i must say they are very good value for the price they are. In 2020 I will be purchasing another Dacia, this time as a treat I am going to opt for the 4×4.

Anyone on a tight budget should go with a 2 or 3 year old pre-owned. Take excellent care of it (basically do everything the owner's manual says to do, when they say to do it) and drive it for 15 or 20 years, or until similarly all electrics become available — whichever comes first.
Used model of a higher trim or premium crossover is the way to go. Since cars and trucks lose at least 20% by driving them off the lot also car loans have become the next bubble to burst like the housing bubble. It's just best to find a used one from the dealership. Sadly! Also I've noticed that these car companies are nickel and dime the consumers on the options packages seem they're so skimpy on mix level trims making about 4 levels in some cases.Ugh, next I buy will be used maybe year older.
13k for a crossover? They gotta be kidding. Probably that Duster is made from plastic
