1995 Renault Laguna RT 1.8i petrol from UK and Ireland
Stylish, Comfortable and Smooth!
Steering shakes and rattles over bumps. Also Knocks over bumps. New rack needed. £195 to fix, Still to do.
Gearbox feels sticky and lumpy, but not all the time, sometimes is perfect.
Just replaced front brake pads. (120k)
Catalytic Converter went at 114000. £190 to replace.
Rear Near side wheel bearing went at 123000. £90 to replace.
Had to replace power siren fuse for Alarm system (factory Option when new).
My second Renault Laguna now. Overall I am Impressed with its looks, equipment and drive. It does have a few typical Renault faults such as a fierce and stiff clutch and the engine is starting to sound quite tappy, but it has been looked after well and has got many years left in it! I hope!
Performance from the 95 BHP engine is average, you really have to rev it high before you feel anything to shout about, but is smooth, refined and quiet.
The Stereo is the original unit and has many features, but sound quality is poor with not much bass. But the steering wheel remote control is very useful.
The seats are very comfy like most Renaults and I have just fitted some rear head rest which I got from a Scrap Laguna. it was so simple to do as the holes are already there! (finishes the car off nicely!)
Overall a nice looking stylish car.
Would buy another!
