PS - Ive been reading so many online posts from other Renault drivers (mainly Laguna II) having similar wobble problems, so at least I'm not alone.

I've been compiling a list of what it could be (including very basic things and more ominous things). Can I rule any of these out do you reckon?

* Rear Tracking i.e. needs 4-wheel laser alignment
* Tyre from the old buckled wheel is out of shape
* Tyres are on the wrong way (uni-directional, with in/out markings)
* Driveshaft
* Buckled rear wheel or o/s/f wheel
* Bushes
* Gearbox
* Worn internal diff cap
* Engine
* Belts
* Bearings
* Axle(s)
* Reset Kick-down Point
* Flywheel
* Engine Mounts
* Ball Joints
* Wishbone arms
* Fuel pump
* Inner steering arm joints
* ABS sensors

Just wish my garage could swiftly work out what it is, as I feel a bit odd doing all this research when I know next to nothing about cars!

The reason I bought the car in December was because it looked in such lovely condition inside and out, with no marks and looked like it had been beautifully maintained. But now I can't help thinking the previos owner may have been a maniac, if the passenger side front wheel was buckled. Then again, there are so many potholes on today's roads, it could just be that eh?
