    Dacia Logan 8th Dec 16 at 4:33 PM
    Anyone got one or even driven one?

    Thinking about a new one for my next car and I am looking for any feedback that I can get, it looks a good deal on paper but you can't beat first hand experience

    The model I am thinking about is the Logan MCV Ambiance Prime 1.2 16V @ 8295

    I have had my new Logan for about 7 weeks and there has been no issues so far

    I am enjoying the extra space and my dog seems to be comfortable in the back as well.
    The lower revs took me a week to get used to and I can no longer drive about town at 30mph in 5th gear as I did in the Corsa.
    I did mostly town driving for the first 4 weeks while delivering phone books and I was getting 55mph so not too shabby for having that weight in the back.

    Your DPF issues will take longer than 7 weeks to appear, but on 6000 miles a year with a diesel fitted with DPF you can be almost certain of expensive trouble ahead. I hope you give it an 'Italian tune-up' from time to time.
    I used to think that good grammar is important, but now I know that good wine is importanter.

    Those issues should be covered by the 3 year warranty though?
    I didn't get where i am today by not reading moneysavingexpert.com

    Possibly. You'd have to read what is covered by the warranty - it may not include blocked DPFs, and what happens after three years? Why can't Dacia offer 5 or 7 year warranties (as Hyundai, Honda, Kia etc.)?

    But before signing on the dotted line the usual fine print reading obviously needs to happen...

    That's the first year gone of my Logan and no complaints from me, avergaing 60mpg for all driving and although I have only done 3000 miles in the first year, this is due to me walking more rather than I expected to since I got my dog as well.
