Re: 2003 laguna with 155,000 miles on the clock
It really depends on what type of driving the car has been subjected to.
If its been a taxi, then lots of short journeys in an urban environment is heavy on clutches & brakes.
If its been a motorway hack, then mechanically it should be fine, but the body may be a bit battle-scarred through stonechipping.
I'd probably (for peace of mind) get a service & cambelt change (including the associated water pump & belts).
Then I'd take it from there - at least with that kind of mileage, you have the reassurance that its unlikely to have been clocked!
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
