I'm thinking about getting this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RENAULT-LAGUNA-2-0-DYNAMIQUE-TURBO_W0QQitemZ270541837989 I've already had a test drive in it and loved it but don't know what you lot think of it though.
I just don't know weather or not to go for it but I do like it.
I think it isn't a bad price wouldn't say cheap but only just about right imo.
Oh for some reason the interior picture isn't right.

after looking for a laguna splitter i was shocked to see the amount of these being broken on ebay!

just this evening there are 201 results, i know some of them are the old shape, but not a good sign really!!

and i think they look ugly as hell!

I have known two people who have had that shape laguna and both gearboxes went on them. If the car has no warranty you are talking £700 for a reconditioned or second hand gearbox. I love the styling of them but its french at the end of the day thats why i stay away from them.

A few fault with the laguna 2 the DCi is worse though.

Xenon headlight stop working,
Keycard fails to lock or unlock,
Tailgate locking problems,
Incorrect tyre pressure reading & Puncture warning shows itself but tyre still hard,
Rear coil spring are know to snap and excessive ware on rear bushes.
Renaults are also know for there pencil coils for dying.

Only 1 positive atm then lol I just don't know now really as I like Vauxhalls a lot more but I still have a soft spot for the Laguna though as I have had a test drive in it and loved it but liking Vauxhalls more gets to me lol
I'm shocked on how second hand cars have gone up though in the past year at least. Like Vectras for a Turbo version you can't buy at that price you're looking at a good £3500 to £5,000 depending on age of course for one.

It must be about the only model that they don't then :lol: the problem with Renaults more so meg 2 & lag 2 is water ingress and which electrical component it leaks into.

Quite good have a look on link except interior picture is the only one that isn't right in link but it was well nice with half leather interior and leather on the door panels there isn't another example I could find on the bay with the same interior pic. It was well light on the steering to drive for a big car I might go back Wednesday and have another test drive to see if I do want it because I can't decide still but getting back into my car it's so heavy, bumpy ride and just a bit slow. Want something quicker at a good price and this is especially insurance is cheaper than a Vauxhall Signum Turbo as well believe it or not and only £70 more than mine to insure when the insurance is due next month.

The entry level is 165bhp the autos are 170bhp then there is the GT which is 205bhp with 221 lb-ft of Torque

GT dont sound too bad, still wouldnt touch one tbh though having had to work on loads of them with the faults youve listed mate and more !
