Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Buyer's Guides - Oil specification by Elf.
Renault recommend service intervals of 6,000 (10,000 Km) miles where the vehicle is gong to be used in a harsh climate. The engineers won't know which area of Australia the car is likely to be used in so obviously they recommend the worst case scenario. From what I can gather from the news is that some Australian cities are not adverse to having the occasional sandstorm so I suspect the engineers are playing safe.
Personally I wouldn't run any Renault without a service every 9,000 miles.
