Re: To Buy or not to buy 53 Renault Laguna 1.9 turbo

It has served well returning more than 200K but it is at the end of its life so not worth much if anything at all. It is very unlikely it will pass another MOT without major injection of cash and scraping a pass on the emission tests, plus high probability of other problems in near future makes for an unwise risky investment. I recommend you avoid this car.

But if do decide to take a chance and prepared to DIY
Its value is no more that what a local scrap yard would offer to take it off your hands. DIY repairs could run a few hundred quid to get a new MOT then you’re on borrowed time until something major fails. So invest as little as possible and be prepared to cash in on scrap yard offer.
