The Dacia Sandero
The Dacia Sandero – cheap to buy and holds its value well too

RENAULT likes to call the Dacia Sandero “the UK’s most affordable car” but now the sums are even better because it looks as though the budget super-mini will hold on to its value better than most of its rivals.

Residual value specialist CAP has forecast that over three years and 60,000 miles, the entry-level Sandero, the £5,995 Access 1.2, will lose £3615, while the top-of-the-range Laureate with the same engine loses £1400 more.

That means the Laureate keeps 36 per cent of its value, which is six per cent better than a similarly-specced Skoda Fabia and eight per cent better than a broadly equivalent Suzuki Swift – and CAP’s rival Glass’s Guide is expecting the Sandero to do even better in the depreciation stakes.

The news follows strong residual values predictions earlier in the year for the Sandero’s SUV stablemate, the Duster.

  1. I have been promised my Dacia Sandero since 1 April – saga upon saga – could not find car, found it with flat tyre, now got broken brake pipe, sent wrong part. Arnold Clark have tried and tried to get them to send car so they could fix flat tyre but no luck. Car has been registered in my name since 1 April so theoretically I am responsible for it.

    So worrying, the continual stress is not good for me – I am recovering from an operation and the last thing I need is stress but all I get is platitudes from Dacia service centre – Mel Sharpe and Joe Meija-renexter but no one knows when I will get my car. No one seems to know how to take charge and make it happen. Not very proactive – in fact not at all proactive.

    I believe I am not the only person who is going through this with Dacia but no one ever hears about it. This should be be in the public domain – I am currently talking to lawyer about claim for loss of use, depreciation, stress, insurance on a borrowed car, etc but the threat of this still does not make the car appear! It must now have cost Dacia in man hours more than the car is worth to try to resolve this issue. How can they let this go on?

    I have asked Arnold Clark and Dacia for a response to your comment. Ralph Morton, editor

    Dacia has responded with the following comment:

    Ms Walker’s car was delayed longer than it should have been. The vehicle is now at the dealer and will be handed over to the customer as soon as possible. Dacia UK Customer Relations are in contact with Ms Walker and will arrange an appropriate gesture of goodwill for the inconvenience she has experienced.
