I had a Laguna 1 phase 2 (like the one your thinking of buying) and had it for 6 years with hardly any problems with it.
The main problem that I had with mine was the ariel leaking and water getting onto the PCB for the RF central locking. It stopped working when it rained !
To get round the issue I got my mate to put me an alarm on the car that interfaced with the cars central locking = Problem solved
Another area for concern was the bonnet pull / cable. That had a tendancy to not open the bonnet sometimes, due to it stretching I think. Eventually it stopped working all together and I got it replaced by the garage. I think the only other thing that went wrong with it was an ABS sensor.
My Laguna 1 phase 2 needed MUCH less work doing to it than the Laguna II that replaced it (which i had for 2 years).
