Re: Laguna 1.5dci enough power?

I drove one a few months back and I was surprised at how it went but I did get the distinct impression the engine was working at its upper limits.

The Lag is a heavy car and although on paper the power to weight ratio looks OK in practice I felt it had to be pushed hard all the time and that was without any passengers or trailer. Also it seemed to fade on going up hills.
