What should I look for in a used Renault Laguna estate?
Renaults give their owners more grief than most other makes. The What Car? Reliability Index rates them poorly, while the JD Power customer satisfaction survey reveals plenty of unhappy owners. The Laguna, at least, is no better or worse than other models in the line-up.
First off, check all the necvessary recall work has been done. There have been several recalls to fix, among other things, a fuel leak and safety-related problems with the towing ball (where fitted), as well as several to cure acceleration problems.
