Laguna III - to buy or not to buy / what to look for?

Hi all,

I've been a member here for ages - used to have a 99/T Clio, but have been without a Renault for a few years now and am thinking about getting a new one - a 2008 Laguna III 2ltr diesel 150bhp.

Does anyone drive one of these? Or have any tips on what to look out for on an inspection/test drive?

The car in question is up for 3700, with 101k miles. Seems like a decent price from some quick autotrader/ ebay research.

It sometimes parks on the street near our house, and when it drove away yesterday there was a patch of filthy oil under the car (although I'm not convinced this was from the Laguna as it has apparently been serviced very recently - this oil did not look fresh) any ideas what might cause a leak, if it is from this car?

Any other things to look for on these cars?

Many thanks in advance,

A potential new Renault owner!
