Makkina. I expect it will be the same Engine as my 2002 Laguna 2.0
I must admit there are a few known Issues with this car. Front Ball Joints. Rear Axle Bushes.
But let me tell you. This is my 3rd Renault Laguna. Ive Had 94 L 1.8 RT. 99 V 1.8 RT Sport, and Now 2002 52 Plate. 2.0
In my Opinion these are much more of a car than your Mondeo. Vectra. Peogeut or Citroen.
If the Ball Joints and Rear Bushes need doing get them done, it will transform the car.
Another Plus point. This
2.0 Engine Comes in at 185g/km. Which is £165 to Tax.
The Later 2.0 Petrol Engines come in at 187 g/km £205 to tax.
The Fuel economy isnt bad for a 2.0 Petrol Engine. I return around 35 mpg if driving on A roads. 30 mpg if motorway driving at around 80-90mph.
It's heavy on juice around town driving though. Expect about 27mpg.
Overall i think they are a great car.
