Re: hello im new.... Is the laguna 2 a reliable car?

I have had an 03 Lag 1.9dci since nearly new and for the majority of that time it was a decent car to own. I ran into problems a couple of months ago with a Turbo failure which led to an ever growing list of problems, hence it is about to be replaced with a 57 plate BMW 520d Tourer.

Summary, Nice car, stylish looks, nice to drive and cheap to run. Service it well and it will look after you, get the turbo checked out maybe check for play in the impellers and inspect the oil pipes. Beyond that enjoy what is a nice car to live with (even if I have come to detest mine, sitting outside with loads of new parts and going nowhere! )

Edit, mine was still returning over 50MPG the day before it exploded!
Currently in Paul Dengel's garage:
57 BMW 520d (177 bhp) SE Tourer and a 51 1.2 16v Clio Dynamique
