hi simon.

maybe more people can tell you info on the laguna. I actually loved the old model.

but I can share this due to a guy I know owning one about 2 year ago. he had a neon and it was a bit greedy on fuel so he went for a laguna. he only lived about 4 miles from his work and he thought he could save a fortune with it. it turns out that after 2 or 3 weeks he had to take it back because it went into limp mode . they replaced 2 injectors and told him to give it a good run, 2 weeks later he had another 1 fail . and less than a week later 1 of the new ones failed. they told him because he does short journeys and he don't give it a good kick they where breaking down. so he used his car a bit harder to work. which got him a speeding ticket for doing 35 in a 30mph zone and on the way home another injector failed. he had the car less than 2 months has the car dealer told him they aint paying for anymore injectors. the car was a 2.0 turbo diesel that's all I know.

I am not saying they are bad cars .. just letting you know his problems.
