Are Laguna's that bad???

My Existing car (Vauxhall Vectra DTi) has given up. Changed head gasket and it's blown again. 162k on the clock, so going to get a new car.

Was looking at a Laguna 1.9 Dci Expression 2003, with 94k. Started to investigate and was getting mixed messages. The bad points seem to be:

1. Turbo likely to blow up
2. Electrics fail
3. Heavy front end, make replacement tyres common
4. Suspension isn't the best yet.
5. Requires Renault garage to most work due to the ECU needing reset, etc.

Good points:
1. V. Confortable
2. Good MPG

Quite strong bad points. Is this car really that bad? The car is priced at 1395, which is the book value but worry that it's priced low to get it off the forecourt.

It's meant to have a full service history, but have yet to look at it.

Any views and comments would be gratefully received!!!

I hope this forum is as good as, which is brilliant!
Currently in keefbeef's garage:
Vauxhall Vectra, although probably not for much longer
