I don't think I'd ever buy a car with a 1.9DCi built before about 2005.

Might've been misfortune, but I know of a company who had 5 52/03/53 (so not all one 'faulty' batch) Lagunas with that engine, and 4 of them ended up with wrecked engines at around 100k after the turbos disintegrated despite rigorous servicing on schedule by a Renault main dealer. Then again, maybe that was Laguna specific...
Currently in Azurael's garage:
TEB64 (Cosmic Grey) 2001 'Y' Laguna II 1.8 16v Privilege Tourer (KG0B F4P-770)/TED44 (Odyssey Blue) 2001 'Y' Laguna II 1.8 16v 'Expressionale' Hatch (BG0B F4P-770)
