I once had a 1996P 2.5dT Safrane Automatic which had the "Gearbox operating in safety mode" fault. Took it to the Renault Dealers and they wanted 2800 for a new gearbox - I could have bought the car again for that.. twice. Took it to an auto-gearbox specialist who said it was either the transmission oil or a solenoid switch. I personally would not recommend anyone to buy a pre-1997 Safrane, as the Aisin Warner transmission used in the facelifted model is much less problematic than the Renault unit that was previously used.

2001 Renault Laguna II Privilege 1.9dCi and a 1999 Renault Safrane 2.5 20v Executive
