I would go very careful, my laguna looked nice when i bought it, but 1 year on and the auto gearbox went, dont know if there is anyway to tell beforehand, mine played up but garage could find nothing wrong and put it down to me being female, then it just went while I was going up a steep hill, lost all gears, cost me £1800 for it to be fixed.

Any clues I should look out for that the 'box may be a duffer?
Cheers:d
Check the ATF if possible, make sure it is filled to the correct height and is a clear reddish colour not red / black and burnt smelling, look for leaks around engine / box. Try it in all gears esp. hard accelarating. Let the engine get hot, while stationary, until the fan kicks in then try forward and reverse looking for slippage / slugishness.
