Laguna vs Mondeo vs Saab
I had a Laguna 2.2 '95 RT-D until the cambelt went 4 weeks ago. I did 60k miles in 3.5 years, taking it up to 124k miles, mostly just local driving with trips to London from Fareham area every 6 weeks or so.
Figured the repair isnt worth it, but now feeling the car did quite well for the money I paid for it, I am leaning towards getting a slightly newer Lag diesel, but find that I would pay more now than I did 3 years ago for cars with higher mileages! Was I just extremely lucky then, or was it because Cambridgshire is a car backwater!
However, cos I like the shape for roominess of boot and ability to double as an estate -(no family to take up those back seats), I wondered whether I should consider a diesel Mondeo, or pay more for a Saab (similar hatchback shape). Cos I'm a girl and dont know much about the Mondeo or Saab 9.3's would appreciate your input.
