2001 Renault Laguna Initiale Sport Tourer 2.2dCi (6) from UK and Ireland
Turbo-Charger blew at 30,000 miles. Fixed by dealer for £1800.
The Laguna's been through 3 clutches and 2 gearboxes - I drive as I've driven every other car, all of which I've never had any problems with clutches or gearboxes!
Tyre Pressure Monitors fail constantly - system removed at 45,000 miles (£80)
Aircon unit failed - £450 to replace! EXTORTION!
ABS light illuminates randomly - faulty sensors.
EGR Valve sticks all the time - cleaned every 3000 miles.
Rear bushes fail periodically.
Rear Parking sensors failed.
ANYONE ELSE HAVING THESE PROBLEMS!?
Very comfortable, that's where the good points stop. Renault's customer service is apalling. The Laguna requires some SERIOUS work, although there were improvements in 2005 (The wife has a 2005 55 plate Dynamique, none of the problems I've had and she's covered almost 100,000 miles in 3 years!). My advice would be not to touch any of the earlier examples, they're riddled with electrical gremlins!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
