Question Laguna II 1.9dci?!

I want to buy used car Renaul Laguna 1.9dci, 2003. That car is exactly that I want to buy, graet disain, great looks, great features...
But, I heard that Laguna has more problems, bad electronics, and if I buy that car I will be in big trouble... (
Does anyone have experiance with this Laguna?
Is it truth that she has more problems than other Renault's cars?

Thanks everyone

Hello and welcome to the forums.

Unless the car has a full service history and a warranty period then I would walk away in my opinion.

Unless the dci engine has regular services ( oil changes at least) every 9-12k miles (dont beleive the 18k miles service interval), then the turbo is likely to blow up.

Turbo failure on the dci engine is a common fault. The Laguna's do have a lot of faults, but most makes of car do.

Most of the answers / fixes to faults are covered on this forum.

If the car has been well looked after, and your taking out a warranty on the car then go for it.

My turbo went at 70K on the nail with a full service history and 9K intervals. If you have a manual gearbox and know how to spot the signs, it's possible to stall the engine before any serious damage is done. If you have an auto box, or don't do the right thing, you'll write off the engine.

The 2.2dCi is a safer bet. Not completely problem-free, but nowhere near as notorious for fatal turbo flaws as the 1.9dCi. If your budget will stretch to a late 2005 model, then the 2.0dCi is supposed to be a much better engine than either of its predecessors. It's also chain driven, so you don't have to budget for a new timing belt at 72K or 5 years.

Don't do it, buy a C5, Passat or Mondeo instead and save yourself a s**tload of grief and expense, and yes I am speaking from personal experience
