I bought a Luguna 2.2Dci last week, great spec, Privelege model with sat nav etc, 52 plate, this week the turbo started making rattling noises on acceleration, took it back to garage and they replaced the exhaust, they thought that was what was causing the noise. Nope, noise still there, rattling on acceleration still, took it back to garage again, oh yes, it is the turbo , its basically knackered they said. So a new turbo being fitted over the next few days, cost to me nothing, cost to garage, a lot !

Car: Renault Laguna 2.2 Dci tourer
Year: 2003
Owners: 2 including me
Mileage: 50,500
Time owned: 1 week
History: Full Renault service history
Cost: Paid out in full by garages 3 month warranty.

Will they need to replace all the engine oil when changing a turbo , do you think they'll swap the oil filter at the same time ? or when I get it back I'll get it done asap, as it is due.
Currently in jkspoff's garage:
Renault Scenic Dynamique, 1.9DCI, panoramic roof, proximity sensors, 34k miles, electric blue, 2004
