Hi Leroy the mk 1 laguna i had only had the usual things go on it like exhaused parts and i lost part of one of the front springs two years ago but that may be because at the time i had my sons band in it bass player,lead guitar player, drummer and drum kit.singer and all the equipment and me driving it went twang bang clunck and i ran it over with the back wheels it was like a rubber ball on the front for springs until it was put right. also i would like to tell you about some great tyres which i think are the best kept secret for all renault cars the make is barum bravus if you go on the web put in cheap tyres it should come up with the right site you will not get better tyres at any price good in wet ,snow,ice and holds the road like glue gareth.
