    Coworker has had one for two years and he's pretty pleased with the price and the general practicality of it. He never does any longer commutes and says that a couple of hours in it on the freeway would be, I believe he said, tiring.
    Had one as a rental during a vacation in Iceland in the winter, and it was very well suited for that. Practical, decent drive, and everything is rubber and plastic so no worries while getting in with clumps of ice/snow/mud on your boots. But most of all: you can't go faster than 90 km/h in Iceland. Duster isn't very good for higher speeds. It doesn't have the gearing for it and it gets a bit unstable iirc. Other than that decent little honest car.

    how well the used ones hold their price should be indicator enough.

    Houston we have a (suspension) problem



    First assumed it was tires hitting the wheel well but must be something else. Only happens with a passenger aka additional weight. Most likely from the front since I did stand in the trunk jumping up and down last night. Nothing.
    I'm guessing sway bars possible hitting something, or maybe the shock mounts rubbing somewhere i dunno.
    Welp

    Hard to tell from the horrible quality audio but I wager it is wheel rub.

    Sounds like you have a toolbox in the trunk to me

    Would go with Straight on this one. Take a quick look in the wheel wells and see if you have any scuff marks. Given you have lowered the car a little recently it would be a good bet. Also check for scuffs on the roll bar drop links in case something is contacting other suspension components thanks to lowering. If you cant see scuffs try moulding some playdough on areas you think may contact other points, if an impression is left on dough, you have found your contact point.
    Shitting up eve for .... well, longer than most of you scumbags.

    So.... turns out it actually wasn't the tires.

    2 issues seem to have popped up at the same time - both fixed, hopefully:

    .) The bottom mount of the front right mudguard was broken. With enough wind or the suspension being compressed the bottom flap would fold back and scrape over the road. Welp~
    Took the mud guard off, bit off sandpapering to clean the roughed up edges. Some Sugru on both sides fixed the bottom mount. Heat gun was used to reshape it and bring the bottom flap up into a horizontal position again.





    .) The aftermarket 2.5" exhaust system must've been scraping or hitting the frame whenever the suspension was bottoming out with a passenger and spirited driving through a dip or hanging corner. Or possibly that's just how the FM rear shock mounts sound when the suspension bottoms out with the FM foam bumpstops.

    Either way I did put the Koni shocks from the default middle to the highest spring perch yesterday. Managed to do it without removing the shock assembly.
    Put the car on the lift and used two pieces of 2x4 to push up the bottom shock mount while lowering the car again. Plus a single spring compressor to keep it all in place while fiddling with the circlip.


    So the tires weren't the issue alltough camber is definetely way off and positive. I'll get it aligned asap.
