1999 Renault Laguna RT Business.com 2.0 16V
Good, very BIG, very good looking and performing car!
Up to now more or less nothing, except:
- Very lousy service when ordered alloy-wheels (waited 8 weeks!! ==> Don't buy things coming from Conti Switzerland, they're nuts - delivered three times the same - but effectively wrong!)
- Rattle in right door, fixed by the dealer.
- Light bulbs (H7) blow off after ~1 year... lousy!
- Radio controls are very silly sometimes....
A good car, especially the interior work is very well done. The navigation system is OK, I would buy it again. Had to change dealer because Renault Zuerich isn't able to do anything right...
The Laguna I have is the 2.0-16V S, the Volvo engine. But Renault has changed the transmission, so the car fits better!!
The engine has a very nice sound, however, the fuel consumption is a bit high...
Due to the navigation system there is little space for the passenger on the right front seat...
I think I would buy another Renault, but I am not sure since Alfa and Honda have nice cars too...
One VERY lousy thing: The car is ~4.75m long, but it's visibility backwards is more than lousy. The new Laguna will even be 12cm longer.. having less space for luggage... I don't know whether that fits me.....
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I like my Renault Laguna Break RXT 1.9dTi very much - it is a great car for traveling long distances. But on the other hand I am not particularly impressed with some aspects of the quality of the car - besides two serious problems I've had in 1.5 year / 60.000km, today one of the headlights went off-duty... That seems to be pretty fast to me, too (just like mentioned in the review).
