Re: Are Laguna's that bad???

Lag 2s really are lovely cars, and I'm willing to live with the niggles on a petrol one for the wonderful, luxury car-like ride and the amount of toys you get even on basic models like mine. But the 1.9 dCi is a liability and the 2.2 is prone to cracked intake manifolds...

I know being Mondeo man is in itself a bit of a turn-off, but they're really good cars, especially if you want a diesel - most of all because there are a lot of them about so parts are never a problem. Personally, I don't think the Mondeo rides as well as the Lag 2, and it's not as quiet... But it does corner better, the interior trim doesn't appear to disintegrate, and either is going to make a Vectra feel like a truck...

I've seen Lag 2 V6s with LPG conversions on eBay for pennies... If it weren't for the cost of doing the timing belt, I'd definitely have one
