1994 Renault Laguna RT Sports 2.0 from UK and Ireland
An excellent family car
I have owned this car for almost 4 years. Two years ago I had a slight bang with another car. Since this time the car started to misfire. The local Renault dealer could not identify the reason only that it was misfiring. To date this year, I have spent £800 on the car for repairs and still it is breaking down. New starter motor, new TDC sensor and plugs and leads. New starter motor again, New coil and propose new Ignition Module perhaps now a new computer. To date it has broken down 7 times for me. This time however, the garage say it will cost another £600 to repair for a new computer. Surely, the garage could identify the exact cause as I am paying for what they think it may be as apposed to what it wrong with the car. Does or has anyone else had similar problems with their Laguna either cutting out/stalling etc. My car still will not start and the garage are clueless as to what the cause is. I would be very grateful for comments?
I love my Laguna to drive and for my family. I only wish these things were not so complicated to sort out.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sounds like you might just have a bit of a bad earth somewhere, It may be worth sticking a new or additional earth lead from the battery to the engine.

Think you should get an autoelectrician to have a look at the immobiliser. Could also be a dodgy terminal on the battery, if there's a slight lapse of current the immobiliser could turn on.

I have a RT -94. It kept stalling and cutting out. Mid M25 is not a good place for that. My garage identified one or two sensors that the computer claimed needed changing. Something to do with the injection. The garage cleaned them and I had no more problems.
