1996 Renault Laguna RT 1.8 8v from UK and Ireland
Good car overall - very comfy!
Immobiliser broke at 90,000.
Gearbox blew up at 88,000.
Ignition coil broke at 106,000.
Superb comfort for it class, cheap to buy now, the seats seem to eat you up!
Powerful enough when you need it, although I found it was a bit slower with a full tank of petrol!
Cruises superbly at 70-100 on the motorway, not that I ever took it up past 70! honest ;-)
Reliability was OK, as said immobiliser broke costing £280.
Ignition coil went that was only £40.
Brake hose required for mot was only £18.
Gearbox had gone just before I owned the car, and had been replaced with a re-conditioned unit.
Worst expense was petrol as I only really used it around town; £10 of fuel would last about 60 miles, but on the motorway that £10 would do up to double that, around 110-120 miles!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
