Are these main dealer prices?

If so,then try an Independant or Renault specialist.The labour rate is around half that of a main dealer,and you'll get at least as good,and in some cases,better service.With dealers charging £80 to £100 an hour,it doesn't take long to build up a large bill....

Having said that,the early Laguna 2's are more troublesome than certain other models and they can begin to cost a lot of money relatively young in their life.They do have quite a few common problems,so in general they're not a cheap car to own.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
