Laguna Estate


I am thinking about buying a Laguna estate 1.9dci Initiale, 52 plate with 97k on the clock (full dealer history).

I have been warned by a couple of people that these cars are trouble, particularly in relation to electrical problems.

Any useful advice or experiences to help me make my descision?

Thanks in advance,

I've bought the last of the old shape a few weeks ago, the 1.9DTi on a W 2000 plate. Having been a member on here for a month or so now I've come to the conclusion that problems seem to be more common on the newer version, as most of the posts on here seem to be about the new model than the previous one.

Draw from that what you will. I've also noticed on the road that the roof line comes in a lot quicker on the new estate reducing headroom at the back. Something to think about if you ever plan on taking anything bulky in it, such as wardrobes or fridge/freezers / sunbeds (all things I've had in my previous Sierra Estate at some point ).

As with all cars, there are good and bad ones. The Lag II does appear to have had more than its fair share of electrical and turbo problems. That said the later models 04 onwards, whilst they may be too new do seem to be more reliable. As with all makes a new model always has teething problems and it takes the manufacturers several yrs (usually) to iron out all the problems. That is why it never pays to buy a brand new model as soon as it is launched.
We have had ours for 6mths now,done 6k miles and still really pleased with it. We bought our previous car on say so from somebody , a Picasso 2.0hdi, they were supposed to be good, after owning one and reading about everyones elses problems, Renault have nothing to worry about.
If you are serious, get the car checked out by the AA or an experienced mechanic if you know one, and make sure you have a warranty with it.Also change the oil and filter every 9000 miles with fully synthetic oil . the 18K service interval is too long, hence the turbo probs, Renault have now reduced the service interval to 9k for all new models.
