Just after a bit of advice from some Renault fans.
I have had a laguna in the past ( a 2000 DCi Sport) and my Dad currently has a 2005 Dci 1.9 Dynamique. I know I hear horror stories about reliability but between both cars and tens of thousands of miles both these have never missed a beat.
I am looking at a more economical but still reasonably quick diesel than my current merc C320CDI and have seen a seemingly bargain priced 2006 DCI GT 175.
It has done 132k miles with one rep owner and has full renault service history and is FULLY loaded with extras. It is being sold from a garage at price of 4k with a full years warranty???
Now as I have already said I have heard horror stories about electrics etc but I am not overly concerned about that as I suspect they would have shown up and been fixed in the time with last owner.
What I am wondering is about life on engine/gearbox/
etc?? Does anyone else have experience with the 175bhp unit in this car and big miles???
I do mainly motorway miles so would be crusing 70-90mph so not stressing engine.
What you think guys????
Thanks in advance for the advice.
