Dacia pwns Skoda in sales

  1. Well...not exactly, they sell pickups which are loosely based on the Dacia 1410 which in turn was based on the Renault 12.

    But the chassis is completly different so it's neither, it's a Dacia pickup that looks similar to its predecessors.

    The only sedan is the Logan, they've stopped production of the Dacia 1400 sedans about three years ago, and also stopped the production of the newer Solenza sedans sometime in 2004.

  5. Hmm. I have 29, now 30 posts since I joined in 2002. I normally just read, but I'm thinking of buying a Logan so I've been scouring the net for details. Some of those searches brought me here. I did another search within the forums here and found some interesting details to which I could not resist to reply. I don't bump posts. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

  6. I'm pretty sure that atleast 75 % of my posts were car related, so I have no problem with my post count. That being said, forget Dacia. Buy Fiat
     
  7. A mate of mine had a Punto, he was driving, we almost overturned and crashed through no fault of his, I don't trust em. Low quality and tackyness, is the norm for Fiats, even 'expensive' ones. The handbrake used to rise by itself for no reason. This was a new car.

    And that new Fiat made in Turkey will be no better. Now I know that the Logan is realiable, and reasonably safe, and much cheaper than anything of the same quality. The new Fiat has a lot to prove, and I want a car now, not in 2-3 years.

    As for the ADAC incident with the Logan, ADAC admitted that they were wrong in assuming that the lack of an electronic stability system caused the problem. They have now admitted that the repeated stress on the tyres from the series of tests they did caused the crash, and it had nothing to do with the Logan.
     
  8. I am a owner (from new) of a 1.2 ELX 16V mk2 Punto of the year 2000 . I have never experienced any of the problems that you mentioned. And other than Oil, gasoline, washing fluids and a brake pads I have never had to pay for any type of repair.
     
  9. i remember reading about the fabia in an old CAR magazine.. there was no article, but in their car comparisns, the journalist/s said that it wasnt as good as a fabia... that is,whichever car they compared to it.
