I'm thinking of trading in my 3 litre petrol Laguna for a diesel version (over 3000 in petrol last year!), but am rather concerned about the turbo failure problems.
I realise that reading a forum can give a skewed impression of just how common the problem is (but hey, if enough people hear it bark, chance are it's a dog...).
My budget says I'll be buying around a 2003 model, but what I was wondering was whether the reliability problem is the same on the 1.9 as on the 2.2. My preference would be for the 2.2 for the extra horses, but I must consider reliability as well.

2007 Clio DCi Initiale, 2009 Audi A6, and a 2009 Triumph Sprint ST
