hello to everyone .need help please i am about to buy a 53 plate with 85k ex co car .fully serviced.
how good is this car in terms of reliability/mpg running cost of service any advice gratefully recieved .thanks for looking
This weekend I went to London and back.
I acheived approx 38.5mpg on the way down, but was nipping along with an average speed well in excess of the national speed limit.
On the way home I sat at 70mph and the car managed a quite staggering 57mpg.
Very pleased with this figure as I was doing 70 all the way so not too slow.
I have found that there is a huge difference in economy when you get to 80ish on this car and the 2.2 I had was definitely more economical at high speeds, but all in all very pleased with it.
I did 568 miles at an overall average of 47mpg, so not bad.
Around the doors and back and forth to work in heavy traffic it gets about 39mpg.
Currently in nev's garage:
2003 Laguna II 1.9DCi/ 1982 R5 GTL 1.1
