Re: Intrested in a second hand laguna - should I stay clear?

it depends how the turbo fails if the oil seals fail it can go into runaway mode but this is the same for all turbos
you will get a warning when you start to burn oil
my 1.5 dci van the last owner run it into the ground i just caught it before it totally failed it made a smoke screen behind me the oil and filters over 30000 miles had not been changed there was more oil in the turbo and inlet pipes than the sump so it looks like you have found a good one in that it has been looked after
no matter what you buy sooner or later money will need to be spent on it
