The turbo failed on my 2001 Laguna Sports Tourer last summer. It took the local garage about 2 months and sleepless nights to fix it, costing about a 1000. He got a replacement turbo from Renault, but that was faulty too, and he was delayed by long arguments with the Renault supplier, who insisted it was perfectly OK. He finally got a turbo that worked.
I also had "Fuel injection system faulty" around the same time, and needless to say, the Renault dealer (Reg Vardy Sheffield - fairly incompetent dealer) could not find any fault.
Eventually my local garage fixed it. Both turbo and "fuel injection system" have been OK since.
However, immobiliser failed yesterday.
The car has done about 60,000, and I had wanted to keep it to a high mileage, but that has been a costly mistake. My wife wants to swop if for a Honda Jazz, since it is now fairly unreliable.
