  1. Hello ALL ๐Ÿ™‚
    The people who work hard to build the Duster are all romanians, so RESPECT to them from Paris.
    The SHAME is that Ghosn favorises Nissan and Datsun, instead of Renault and Dacia… and makes loose market shares to Renault and Dacia by giving its models (Duster and Logan) to Nissan and Datsun.

  2. And one more thing, Mercedes use Renault Engine for Class A and B (and others) ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Renault is building the new Smart for Mercedes (Twingo 3 Basis). But I should stop here, because you may say this is very arrogant. LOL!

  3. And of course these cars are excellent, very reliable, because of the Renault technology. (many times F1 world champion ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hello Proud Romania,
      The Duster is sold under the Renault brand in Russia, India and South America. Nothing to do with the French being arrogant.
      Best,
      Matt
