While 60 per cent of those asked think that the brand of their car is not important, a huge 99 per cent still value reliability when choosing a car. Becoming a parent also changes the importance of different factors, with 90 per cent saying they have become more aware of reliability as an importance and a huge 93 per cent say space is sought after.
Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia, UK, said: “Our survey with Mumsnet has shown that since becoming parents, those asked have re-evaluated what the most important elements of a car are to them and their family. At Dacia, we think that buying a car should be both simple and affordable, so we offer a straightforward range of award-winning cars at great value, focussing on the things that matter to customers.”
“With our range of cars, still the most affordable on sale in the UK, customers can buy a brand new car with the reassurance of proven reliability and low running costs.”
