Re: Calling all Laguna II Owners, need your comments!

We have 2 Laguna II's. Only brought them 6 months ago for some cheap temporary motoring.
Since then me and my wife love them both.

I have a 2003 1.8 16v Dynamique manual with 95k miles. 900
And hers is a 2003 3.0 V6 Dynamique auto with 40k miles. 950

Both cars are in really good condition, apart from they both have knocking from the rear suspension main bushings. So this needs doing. Mine is actually being done by a local mechanic this week for 260 alll in. So not too bad.

The 1.8 is quite a revving fun engine. It seems to love being thrashed to 6000rpm and is very smooth doing so. Still returns 32mpg even with my heavy driving.

The 3.0 V6 is a VERY rapid motor. It will hang onto the rear of a Subaru without much bother and makes a wonderful sound !, but i find the heavy V6 up front effects the handling when compared to my 1.8 4cyl.

Equipment levels are really nice. And the Auditorium sound system is loud and clear when turned up.

Points to watch for....
* Rear suspension arm bushings gone.
* Water leaking into passenger footwell when raining.
* Central locking not working.
* KeyCard buttons not working. (185 for a new card)
* Electric window issues. They are cable driven.

Hope this helps.
