I read with interest other reviews. We are currently on our 4th gearbox, 3rd clutch, 5th clutch master cylinder, 9th air con pump....and I hasten to add, last renault
Bought this car with 50k - the 2.0t techno having owned an Alfa 156 before. Should have read the reviews before buying. Running costs are terrible - Have had to replace Gearbox, Flywheel, full clutch parts costing over 2K with just 65k on the clock. not covered under warrenty - Never will i buy renualt again - The parts cost the same as BMW and more than Audi. the fuel comsuption is aweful and the handling is nothing short of dangerous.
DONT BUY RENAULT
Posted a report a while ago. Just exchanged it for a Toyota Avensis (which is much better perceived quality). 2.5 years old with 31k on it and the only problem was the Electronic stability control went on it. Otherwise faultless (even tyres on fron lasted 29k, rears nearly new!), averaged 45-50 mpg (depending whether summer or winter - climate always on). 2 services at £150 each from Portsoy motors handled very well. Very comfy car. Would recommend the new 2.0dci to anyone (far better than 1.9, and much, much more reliable looking at these reports. But theres always that nagging feeling that all the electronic gismos will go wrong....its probably the history of renault, but i think (hope) they have turned the corner now tied up with nissan
I bought this car at 4 years old. Looked great, really pleased with the internal features, good size family car. Needed a new ECU within a week. From then on lucky to go 3 months without a fault. Both front electric windows have been replaced, faulty handbrake, dash board computer cuts out all electrics if used, sunroof opens by itself but doesnt like closing again, replaced sensor on valve at a cost of £42 only for all to have now failed within days, for a second time. Suspension spring went on route to work taking tyre with it. Dealers dont stock keycards,WHY??????? have to come from France which needs programming to car, which takes ages and is costly. Advise people to check the keycards before buying as dealer never mentioned 1 didnt lock the car. This is just the faults i can remember. Infact the only thing that hasnt been replaced is the service light bulb which is suprising as its permanantly on! A real shame as its a nice drive, smooth and quiet with loads of boot space. Have persevered until now but its no longer cost effective to fix. Thought I just had a bad egg and considered buying another laguna but having read other reviews will think again.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
Owned for 1 year, as family runabout Pros good size, general build quality, powershift gearbox, good to drive, low costs Cons handling slighly…
Had this car for 90k from new. A 56 plate. In over 2,000,000 miles driven this one has broken down the most of any car I have had. DO NOT get a 2.0…
