Hi and a very warm welcome to the forum.

I'm no expert but....

The 1.9 Dci is prone to blowing turbos after a very low milage. Possibly atributed to the ludicrously high service intervals.

Also many auto boxes seem to go into something called "safe mode"

Have a search around the forum, there are many posts that should help you out.

I'm sure others will welcome you as well and offer more advice.

Kind regards Oily.

Hello and welcome to the forum

What age of Laguna 2 are you thinking about?.The phase 2(05 onwards,I think...) Diesels seem to be an improvement on the earlier ones,especially as their service intervals are more realistic which aids turbo life.

The forum has loads of information on Laguna 2's,have a search around and you should be able to find out everything you need to look for when buy one.

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