    My car

    I have owned two Laguna II in the last four years.

    One was a 2.0 IDE Dynamic and the second was a 2.0T.

    Both my cars were excellent. The 2.0 IDE was completely trouble free in the 2 years I owned it. This is also true about my 2.0T with which I covered over 50,000 trouble free kms (+ 30,000 miles)in eight months.

    My 2.0 IDE was loaded with electronic and other options (whatever I could lay my hands on) and my 2.0T had the Turbo's standard equipment plus a sunroof. The Turbo's pulling power was incredible. Albeit the engine sound was a little harsh but the car never complained and I drove it to its full capacity.

    I suspect the reason some of your readers may have had so many problems is that they could not have been as kind to their cars as I was. Although I drove my Turbo to its full capacity, on both cars I had my oils changed at 1,500 kms. After that, ignoring Renaults 18,000 service intervals I changed my oils again at 10,000 at which point the agent had a general look at my cars. At 18,000 kms not only were my service costs minimal (e.g. a little over Euro 70) but very little needed to be done to them.

    I believe that if one takes care of their belongings, their belongings will also take care of them.

    After the exhilirating performance of my Laguna 2.0T, I purchased a Clio RenaultSport 182 and now I am the very proud owner of a Megane RenaultSport 225hp, 5door.

    After my Lagunas' I'll never think of any other manufacturers for the cars I drive.

    My car

    Have owned 53 car from new and love the drive. Have travelled 78000 miles of urban/motorway driving. Average 37.5 mpg. Spent money on 3 bulbs, 2x wiper blades and a crank shaft pulley that split when replacing the timing belt. The air-conditioning has just begun to make a strange noise and the steering-rack has just developed a knock. Overall, I've been most impressed.

    My car

    I bought the Laguna at 54,000 miles. However I went through the car wash after about two weeks and the tyre pressure sensor valves showed a puncture. This was whilst motorway driving - quite alarming.

    I went to the Renault dealer and they programmed the computer, since then there have been no problems apart from the fact that the colour-coded wheels are all wrong. Why couldn't the dealer point this out as I was filling the wrong tyre with air? Other replacements include both front ball joints at 74,000 miles and both trailing arm bushes at 80,000 miles. Not bad considering the excellent MPG and reliability.

    Only other problem is the cost of replacement keycards and the occasional "playful" driver's electric window. This is the first Renault I have had (normally I'm a Vauxhall man) but a true Renault fan now.
