1995 Renault Laguna RT 1.8 from UK and Ireland
Very reliable, dependable family car
Front wheel bearings.
Front shock rubber bushings.
Power steering fluid pipes needed replacing.
I'm about to trade the car in part exchange on a nearly new Laguna Sport Tourer. I'm going to stick with Renault because although I read some negative reviews, my Laguna has made it to 232K miles with original clutch, gearbox, engine, head gasket etc - which I find simply amazing.
It starts every time, first time, and has never let me down. It's taken me and my family all over France, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall. It's still very economical - I get between 42 and 44 mpg - which is what I got when I bought the car.
I'm really impressed with this car, and I'll be sorry to see it go, but it's got to the stage where it has no monetary value, and would instantly be written off in the event of an accident.
I have been offered a small sum as a trade in against the new car, so it's time to go for it and wave a fond fair well to a very good, reliable, and trusty family car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
