1997 Renault Laguna RXE 2.0 litre petrol from Australia and New Zealand
A reliable, comfortable French car at a bargain price... Buy one!
* The car has three horns and only one works (the one on the end of the left hand side indicator).
* The air conditioning is very weak (I think there is gunk, old leaves etc blocking it up, or it needs to be re gassed).
* Fuel gauge is faulty (this is not a problem, as on the digital display it tells you how many more KM you are able to cover on the remaining petrol).
* The temperature gauge is faulty (this is not an issue, as if the car were to overheat, a light would appear on the dash board).
WOW! An exceptional vehicle with such low kilometres for just $1,150 NZD. This car totally outclasses its rivals.
The ride (like most French cars) is smooth and comfortable, as if you're floating on a cloud, and the performance is very good considering the engine size. The car can easily overtake other vehicles with little effort.
I actually buy and sell vehicles (I am a student and have a passion for European cars). This is my first, and I am very impressed. The car has already been sold, but I would buy another one tomorrow. There is virtually no wear in the interior; I think that the car has held up extremely well considering the age.
The model I had was the 2.0 RXE. This model shares the same reliable engine as the VOLVO S40 2.0 and the VOLVO 850 2.0; a unit renowned for excellent reliability.
All in all, it is a very nice cheap vehicle, which provides owners with a comfortable ride and excellent reliability. I highly recommend this car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
