2002 Renault Laguna from Australia and New Zealand
Power, comfort and safety, all in a hatchback
Power steering pipe broke and emptied all brake fluid. The car's brake warning system was great at bringing attention to what could have been a disaster.
I absolutely love this car! Even though the Laguna is idiosyncratic, with a rather strange gearbox that is never quite sure what it is doing, and a sound system designed by minimalists, I adore the V6 engine. The car has such a responsive engine, and it always feels like it is chomping at the bit to get going.
I also like the creature comforts; really comfy, if not a bit squeaky seats, and a roomy cabin.
So far my Laguna hasn't had any mechanical problems, and has been running perfectly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
