Laguna 1.9dci initiale - about to buy, some q's pls

Been looking for a new car now for a few weeks, as got rid of my gas guzzling BMW 323 and now need something a bit economical.

I have been looking at both the Laguna and the Mondeo, but have always fancied the Laguna either the Privilege or Initiale (which seem really hard to find). Even though I have read countless horror stories about the turbo and various other things failing.

The car I am about to buy is a 2005 (05 plate) Laguna Initiale dci 120, it has done 93k miles and full Renault History. Looking through the Turbo failing thread they all seem to be the eariler models upto 2003 that have been going, so did Renault fix the fault by this time?

Am I mad going for a Laguna and should I choose the Mondeo?

Any other things that I should look out for or I need to know that would help me in my decision.

Thanks for any help.
