mate had one around a month and its been traded in for a zafira problems hes had with it.

CD player fell out - like it hadnt been locked in place
Passenger speaker stopped working completly
interior mirror gives alot of rattling and as its a rain sensor he cant get it off easily to see whats causing it.
car has locked itself and set the alarm off WHILE driving along
trim isnt well put togeather when you look at it closely.

ohh and the air con wasnt working when he bought it, this was fixed under warrety.

I nearly bought a Laguna once. Glad I didn't now. I remember my mate had a Megane cab and the cambelt went on it. It only had 20 something thousand on the clock :amazed::blink::blink:

ive currently got a 01 laguna dci on my drive. needs a new ECU cos according the mechanic "its french"

Ive no intention of paying the £1400 for a replacement ECU so i bought another car. Some day i might get round to stripping it.

Im my 6 months of ownership it had two sets front tyres, new EGR, new turbo pressure sensor and regulating solenoid. New battery, new cambelt and waterpump.

Nice cars, really........

£1400 for an ecu bloody hell - is there not a lagunas owners forum or something that you might be able to pick up a replacement ecu and get shot of the car

There is. But to be honest its not worth it. Ill only replace the ECU then have the turbo go or something else. Laguna DCI's really are that bad im afraid. Ill make more money selling the bits that are good on mine then if i sold it as new.

Already made £800 with the engine and gearbox. Got another £300 for body parts lined up aswell. If he calls me back. lol
