Here's hoping that the car doesn't let the side down. The only trouble I ever recall him having with the Volvos was with the gearbox on one... and it was a Renault gearbox

The Laguna's reliability has supposedly come forward in leaps and bounds, and the worst thing I've had go wrong in 45K miles is a faulty button. If his is as good as this one has been so far, then I reckon he should be happy with it.

I have the V6 someone once told me it was a volvo engine , would that be correct ?

Also heard the tiptronic box is japanese
