    My car

    We have owned this car for several months now, and despite other reviews on this website our Laguna has been absolutely trouble-free. Perhaps this is due to it being the facelift model? The equipment levels are very high and my overall satisfation of the car is fantastic. This is our second Renault, and one of many more to come.

    The service at our local dealer has also been exemplary. There is little to complain about besides having too much equipment. One tip is to go for the metallic black paint - itsets the car off very nicely.

    My car

    When this car is going well, then it's OK. But more often than not, it's 'fingers-crossed' motoring. Parts are expensive, and there are niggling faults. Motorway cruising is good, as are equipment levels, but we did not drive to Italy this year because of reliability issues.

    Next time, it's going to be a Japanese or German car.

    My car

    I bought a 2002 laguna with 97,000 miles on the clock, so I was concerned when I read of its reliabilty. However, after several thousand miles, I have had no problems except a broken tyre monitor, which cost £30. The car is pleasant to drive with excellent fuel economy.

    My car

    Having run this 53reg car for 25,000 miles I must say it impresses on several counts.

    Contrary to all the pundits the car ran trouble free throughout. I think a quality dealer with highly trained staff assists greatly in this.

    With quite heavy use of the accelerator pedal the car averaged 44/45 mpg all the time. On the motorway appreciably better. It was nimble enough and its pleasant looks impressed too. It was a bit boring though and my new 2.0T Laguna instead now rejuvinates my driving interests.
