why did i buy a renault.

I have a luguna 1.9 dci tourer which i bought 2 months ago. In the 2 months i have had the car i have changed the EGR , BRAKE CALLIPERS, THROTTLE POSITIONING SENSOR, AND NOW THE GEARBOX AND CLUTCH. All this has cost me in the region of 2,000 which is more than i payed for the car. I was told not to buy a renault but let my heart over-rule my head. The laguna is one of the nicest looking estate cars in the market but one of the most expensive to fix. 2,000 is what i have spent at a good local garage, if i had taken the car to renault it would have cost about 4,500 to fix. SO when you are thinking of buying a renault don't let your heart rule your head buy something different a nice little japanesse car or bmw but not a RENAULT.

Sorry to hear of your problems, its an all to common tale on motoring forums (for most brands) I'm afraid

Re: why did i buy a renault.

Such repairs are not unusual on 9 year old cars. A neighbour of mine has spent similar amounts on an 7 year old Audi.

Welcome to the modern world of cheap motoring.
