Have i bought a lemon?

Hi, sorry think i put this post in the wrong area...

After reading the forums, i wonder if i have bought a lemon?


Hi all,

I bought a 2003, Laguna 1.9 dci estate (120 BHP) yesterday.

Love the looks, love the safty.

Full service history.

New turbo at 52K.

Now showing 102K.

My question is what preventative maintenance should i be looking at carrying out...

Electrical problems dont really concern me unless they stop the car from driving... Its going to be the family work horse.

Turbo , clutch, engine and gearbox failure do concern me. Anything i should be doing now to stop these going?

Sorry for all the questions from the off.

Many thanks.


PS i have heard of a valve to help with turbo failure??

Also im guessing more frequent oil changes, as turbo 's like clean oil ...
