Ah right not that long. But best to check over the brakes of course, and brake lines etc. If the service history of the car is unknown then service the engine and really to be on the safe side changing the timing belt is a good idea. Check the sjocks are not leaking, the springs are OK. Normal stuff really but then you'll know the car should be OK
Your hazard/inidactor problem I have no idea. Well, on Vauxhall Cavaliers the hazard switch can cause the indicators to stop working... A new hazard switch fixes it, though the Laguna is probably a different matter!
I'd try a breakers yard for a new drivers seat - shouldn't cost the earth and there are plenty of Lagunas out there being broken so finding one the same fabric/colour shouldn't be too difficult.
Many people find a way of opening the bonnet... Someone on here may well have done so. Best thing to do then is replace the bonnet release when you have gotten it open. As you can't open the bonnet it is possible that the car has been neglected for some time - is there any screenwash in it?
Get it booked for an MOT test and you'll know any nasties. Hope this helps
The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into
