Re: Cheap runabout - worth a punt?

I had a Laguna 1.9dTi Alize estate that I paid 550 for and it lasted me for 3 years with no major problems, just servicing. However the bonnet release cable was a weakness, and I had to use wires tied to the catches that were accessible from under the car! Also the rear crossmember that the towbar was bolted to was rusting very badly which now results in an MoT failure, so check under the rear valance. A very good drive, I was impressed enough to replace it with a slightly newer Lag2, not such a good car IMHO!
Currently in trickyd400's garage:
2001 Renault Laguna II 1.9dCi Dynamique Estate, Ford Fiesta Mk6 1.25 Style, CBR400RR, Beta Zero Gara- now stolen!!! GRRRR!!
