Just Bought Laguna 2 dci... someone please put my mind at rest .. :((

It should be a good time... I've decided to be sensible and have swapped a lovely Nissan Skyline for a 2004 Laguna 2 dCi.

Read loads of bad things about things failing and blowing up and i'm wondering if i should've bothered.

First thing; I thought a Dynamique model should have equipment like:- Auto Wipers, ESP, Auto Lights etc. but mine doesnt. In fact there does seems to be any lights on the dashboard right side that illuminate at all ! Please confirm if this is correct.

Second thing; the turbo 'spool up' is very prominant even when driving very gently. It doesn't sound wrong but i just want to be sure if it's normal for it to be easily heard when the windows down.

Third Thing; There is a picture of a car, but all it seems to do is show if a door's open. No tyre pressure warning; no fault lights to say anything, and no 'tyres' on the screen... nothing... so no tyre pressure monitor either? Whats dynamique about this car then... lol

Finally (pheww); The MPG only seem to be around 34 when tootling about! I was expecting near 50. Normal for this engine?

The car has 68000 miles and i didn't get a service history with it so i'm sh!tt!ng myself thinking its going to break down anytime.

Thanks for your time, and i'm sorry if this has been covered elsewhere.. i can assure you i've made good use of the search button
