Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Buyer's Guides - 1.9 or 2.2 ? MPG ?

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee at the mo (2.5 TD) that im selling and going to buy a Laguna. I have seen a nice 1.9 initiale tourer for 9k from a dealer, but plan to get at least 500 off that price.

My problem is i have seen the a same spec and year 2.2 DCI for 6k!!!!! Not from a dealer so no comeback but cheap as chips. The reason im changing in the first place is because im sick of crappy fuel economy and like the 1.9's 45+mpg. Anyone know the MPG of the 2.2 and is it really as low as 34 mpg???

I have a 1.9dti Laguna Estate and it's geat on mpg. I always get 50 mpg no matter where I'm driving, town, motorway, etc. Best I've done is 58 mpg on country roads were you're doing around 50mph most of the time. I do try to drive smoothly to maximise mpg rather than thrashing it everywhere though.

Although I've found you don't need to rev it like a petrol engine anyway as there is plenty of low down torque. My revs are normally between 2000 and 2600 rpm, which I would imagine is why my mpg is pretty constant.

I've done two return trips to North Wales over the Xmas / New Year period with 4 or 5 people and a boot full of luggage, and still got 50mpg at constant motorway speeds.

I've have a read of a few threads on here ragarding the DCI engine, seems there can be a lot of problems with them, turbo failure for one. Personally, I'd go for the dti, I think the mpg figures are quoted as slightly better for the dti too. Thing is you'll be looking at an older car as the dti finished about 2000 - 2001 I think.

We regularly get near 50mpg out of our 1.9dci - that is for mixed non-motorway driving.

We test drove a 2.2dci - went well. But didn't think the xtra power was warranted as it was more expensive to buy,insure and put fuel in. if you are towing a shed ( caravan) then the 2.2dci will probably be worth the extra.

On a decent motorway run the economy of the two engines will be comparable,but if you do more town driving then the economy of the 2.2dci will be slightly worse.

The main thing to watch out for is that the 1.9dci must have fully synthetic oil and be changed at least every 9k miles - the 18k recommended by Renault is too long and causes problems with the 1.9vengines. Mind you I would still do the same for a 2.2dci.

If you get a chance test drive both cars, preferably on the same day. Make up your mind and see which you think is the better engine.It is your money and only you can decide. People will give their honest opinions but at the end of the day choos the vehicle you are happy with.

I would buy a warranty for the non- garage supplied vehicle as repairs can be expensive, also make sure the garage supplied vehicle comes with at least 12mths warranty.

I have a 1.9DCI and I get about 42MPG,

Most of my trips are in and out of work, 60 Miles round trip and about 70% of that trip on a motorway, but often stuck on the motorway in a Q of traffic.
