2002 Renault Laguna Dynamique 1.8 from UK and Ireland
Has the looks and the temperament!
1st item on the agenda, the remote alarm decides to arm itself.
Then after a brief period goes off, Renault say you can deactivate this sensor, this still doesn't work, the only solution believe it or not was to leave the sunroof open on a very small setting.
Car is booked in at the main dealer however this won't be for a fortnight!
Clutch seems to slip.
Makes a horrendous banging / clunking noise from front near side drive shaft. Engages and disengages OK, but is very temperamental in traffic.
Drive to slowly in any gear and it won't acclerate properl.
Seems to labor quite a bit, then when you eventually slow down it drops the revs quite dramatically. After this the clutch / drive shaft noise appears.
As a sales manager for a car dealership, this is a big let down. (I do not work for Renault)
The car looks the part & has plenty of go for a 1.8.
Specification is great.
Build quality not as good as last car.
Some little niggles that could prove troublesome in years to come!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I tend to agree with this reviewer's comments. Had my 2003 Laguna 2 for a year now. Both front door electric windows have failed & been replaced: heater seems to blow hot air somewhere under dash making my left leg 'warm' and the plastic 'key' unnervingly hot when removed after a long trip. Engine / transmission excellent & good economy. Build quality, especially inside, is poor compared to rivals. Will sell soon & consider a Ford Mondeo!!
