2001 Renault Laguna SPORTS TOURER 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
In 30 years of driving this is by far the worst car I have ever had!!!
After picking the car up "new" from the Renault dealership, within 5 miles the engine lost all power, and the on-board systems informed me of a fuel injection fault. Over the next 5 months the car had this problem occurring up to 10-12 times a day! The car was returned for repair 6 times, (days/weeks at a time), with Renault UK Ltd.knowledge. Yet, even after all this the problem was not resolved. In the end I had no choice, but to sell the car at a £3500 loss, as the dealer & Renault UK after some 5 months, were proving to be of no help what so ever.
If this were not bad enough, this was the 2nd.Laguna I have had, after the 1st.one was replaced by Renault for a engine fault.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I totally agree. I have had a Laguna dCi since March 2002, and it has been off the road for 5 months. "Fuel Injection Warning" is all I get if I try and drive it. Renault don't want to know. The dealer is useless, worst than useless - awful. Please note that this problem was first highlighted by "Which" magazine and then reported in "The Guardian", so Renault know all about it - and they have so little respect for their customers, that they just ignore us.
Let's hope Top Gear, or 5th Gear, or one of the TV motoring programs has the guts to report on this shameful behavior and awful car.
