Gee....mine doesn't seem too bad now! She's a tad under 160,000 miles but I still get between 40 to 41.5 mpg from her! Its amazing how many people still think a car with 100,000 miles on it is finished! I intend to get at least 300,000 out of mine before a rebulid!! I'll have fun trying!
Currently in renofan's garage:
1997 Laguna 1.8 8v RT Sport. Black. V6 Leather Interior. Wood Trim on Dash. Monroe Gas "Reflex" Shocks. Sport Springs. Sparco Strut Brace. Team Dynamics Sword Alloys. 6 Disc CD Changer. Tow Bar. Crystal side repeaters. Currently 183,000 miles done. Airflow spoiler, new '00 model headlights, backlights and DRLs waiting to be fitted....

I just bought my wife one with 101,000 on the clock and it will still be good for another 100,000 minimum. It purrs like a kitten.

Unhappy died in cloud of smoke!

Mine had done just under 126k, when i was driving back from torquay up the m5. At about j22 the turbo decided to drink all the oil out of the sump, and there was nothing i could do about it because it just wanted to rev, so i just braked and left it in gear until i came to a stop, thus lots of smoke and she laid to rest on the hard shoulder, last i heard it was going to auction with a seized engine. 3600 to repair so the leasing company said (laguna 2, 1.9dci dynamique techno, 2004 04) the turbo was whistling quite loudly a few months before, and using oil on the motorway so watch out for this!!!

I had a 1.9 diamonique on a 53 plate, half leather trim and it was an absolute gorgeous car, but it liked to blow turbos for fun. 3 in 6 months to be precise. Its original one, and 2 recons. add to this a slight split in a fuel pipe that kept causing it to stall and refuse to start again, every time I got in it, a broken key card that cost me my first born son in payment for a new one,and drive shaft problems. I put it through the auctions and breathed a sigh of relief.

Smile Highest Mileage Laguna tourer

My Laguna 2001 Sport Tourer has covered 146000 miles and still going strong. They aint all bad!!!! I have only serviced it once in three years. Just topped up the basics .
Still doing around 50mpg so Im happy! I have found to shop around for parts and avoid main dealers though but its the same for every car. I have only replaced the the Window cable which corroded.
