Laguna 11 Issues (loads of em)
I've had a look around but can't really find what I want, so was hoping you could help.
I've recently purchased a Laguna 2.2dci on a 52 plate.
How many faults can theses cars have?
LEAKS, do any of you suffer from water leaks in the front, both sides, but mainly the passenger side where the water sits somewhere under the glove box tray and runs along, dripping.
NOISES, is it normal for the steering to make weird clonking and groaning noises all the time, sounds like something twanging under there.
WHISTLING, the intercooler has apparantly been changed because when I test drove it it was whistling, it still is. Is this normal?
VENTILATION, do you find that if you want to clear your windscreen on a wet morning its better to not bother sticking the demister on as it causes more bother? Is it worth putting the heater on when its cold? The blower makes loads of noise, but thats all, hardly any blow!!
BRAKES, how many of you have a hissing from the brakes when you press the pedal. The brakes haven't failed yet, but need pumping up to regain pedal feel, garage says this is normal!
REVERSE GEAR, do any of you out there have trouble getting reverse gear when first starting up on a morning? Garage says its a Renault and they are all like that.
Sorry for the long essay, but I need to get decent answers so that I can go back to where I bought it from and argue over things.
Oh and one more thing, what sort of fuel economy is reasonable from the 2.2dci, I'm averaging 37ish, mainly motorway.
