Re: Laguna 1.9dci or 2.2 initiale worth buying

The above post confuses me somewhat. If the 2.2DCi feels underpowered with a full load then the 1.9DCi will feel even more underpowered surely?

The 1.9DCi so long as you maintain a strict oil change regime will prove to be more reliable than the 2.2 which has a habit of blowing manifold gaskets and spraying the engine bay with oil and also throwing the dipstick out at the same time. The Renault crapnav however is not post code compliant, just road/town so its no better than a basic aftermarket nav that will have postcode find.
