Re: Buying my first french car!
With the diesel I've had two 2.2 litre Laguna's the first I had for approx 5 years and towed a caravan I put 80K on the clock with no problem other than replacing tyres, exhaust.
TBH the 2nd Lag a Mk2 dCi with which I still towed a caravan like a mad man, this one was previously owed by Renault and was a company car driver, this did have problems. The
had to be replaced because of leaking
seals. Also I had problems with
valve's, but TBH I believe that was due to the type of travelling to work I was doing stop go, this type of engine needs to be worked to keep the crud out of the system, I dropped that at 3 years old when the warranty expired.
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
