Re: Calling all Laguna II Owners, need your comments!

The Lag2 2.2dCi that I had, I picked it up @ 12 ish months & 2 years warranty left. Before it got to the official first service of 18k it threw an EGR valve, a couple weeks later the turbo oil seals started leaking, had I have had to pay I was informed I'd have been looking @ around 2500. I hung on to the car until the warranty expired by which time I had to have a further 2 or 3 EGR valves replaced.

At this time I was doing approx 15k miles / year & was told I don't use or drive the car hard enough. Oddly enough theres only so much that the plod will allow, & I doubt a screwed EGR valve or turbo is a valid excuse in their eyes It was a bostin car to drive though.
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
