Re: Which models should Renault retain?

I purchased a Laguna Coupe last year and was disappointed - but not really surprised - to see that it was to be dropped from the UK market this year. It has been a very slow seller, especially in V6 form.

However, dropping the Laguna III Hatch & Tourer seems like a bigger mistake to me. The III has been pretty reliable so far and Renault should be trying to build confidence by releasing a further-improved IV, not dropping it altogether.

In addition, it has to be said that UK dealers, for many different marques, not just Renault, have a very poor reputation and I can't see how reducing the number will improve service levels or encourage new buyers to Renault. In fact, it's far more likely to have a negative effect.
