Re: Your favourite Laguna

A no-brainer for me after owning 'a few' Mk1 ph2's.

The Lag 2 never looked right to me (as said,the estate did look better than the hatch though),the mk3 is dull as ditch water no matter which phase.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Re: Your favourite Laguna

What a great thread. It's great to see the evolution! For me it has to be Mk2 Ph1, beautiful car, especially when at the side of the M1 with hazard lights on and a turbo eating the engine

Closely followed by the Mk3 Ph1. Awkward looking design, but strangely appealing.

Re: Your favourite Laguna

Having owned a mk 1 ph 1 and ph 2, mk 2 ph 1 and 2, and driven the mark 3 phase 1, my favourite has to be my current motor, the Mark 2 Phase 2.

Mark 1s were nice looking and riding, but wriggled in faults, the 1.6 petrol engines were rubbish and the gearbox on both of them exploded!

The mark 2 phase 1 was ok, but problems again - the engine went through 2 turbos in 100,000, and was often a case of guess what the electrics would do!

Current car is on 127,000 and still going strong, and is much nicer inside than the phase 1. No faults on it yet except the dodgy CD player.

Have to say I would pick any of them over the other half's Vectra - poor handling, badly built and uncomfortable - even she describes it as a c**p-mobile!

Not sure about the Mk 3, not convinced enough to swap for my Lag (yet)
