Your dealer has got the software issue wrong..
It is the 2.2 that has an issue with the injection computer code potentially causing premature Turbo failure along with the cast iron EGR pipe bend delaminating and allowing fragments of pipe onto the EGR valve face. .. There are 2 "OTS"'s that cover these issues on specific engine numbers/vehicle types..

The 1.9DCi problems are on the whole due to the extended oil changes and incorrect oil type.. ie 10w40 (semi synthetic) being used instead of 5w40 (fully sythetic).... Especially on the Laguna II..
