2002 Renault Laguna 2.0


Expect better quality from a continental car


I have had the Renault Laguna for about 4.5 years, but faced with numerous problems; e.g. just one year after buying the car - the battery went flat and needed to be replaced. Other than the battery; also its installation.

One week later the front windscreen wiper nozzle would not function.

One month later one of the passenger doors was not able to be locked.

Air-con not adapted to the local climate and thus was unable to provide acceptable cooling, and the evaporator gave up just before 3.5 years.

Am now faced with an UN-repairable gearbox - I have been recommended to change the whole box.

General Comments:

It is a very stable and safe car for driving; however with the numerous problems - practically almost every month it has been in the workshop.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
