If you need a reliable Renault, then dont get one with the DCi engine it it, especially if you dont know the history. But thats just my opinion.

I've been put off them for life by threads on this forum about the 1.9 DCi turbo 's & engine imploding in the Laguna II's.

Don't forget Dave, people only talk about the bad, not the good, there are far more good ones out there than bad!

The figures tell their own tale...


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

It's true that the bad ones make all the headlines and the good stay hidden but without the bad we would not be warned regards them all or appreciate the good.

Those are customer service figures, and still score a surprising 78+ and most of us don't use the dealer once the warranty is out.
