2003 Renault Laguna Dynamique 1.9 dCi 120BHP from Belgium
The worst car the 21st century has to offer
Some people say that car manufacturers no longer produce bad cars. Well these people obviously never owned a Renault Laguna.
- Gearbox replaced
- Clutch replaced (2x)
- Turbo replaced (2x)
- Exhaust system replaced
- Aircon no longer working
- Display of climate control broke down (3x)
- satnav unit replaced
- Tire pressure monitoring system kept breaking, constantly giving false alarms. When I had a flat tire for real, I though it was another false alarm and couldn't be bothered anymore.
- Keyless entry door handles have been replaced on countless occasions. The card itself also needed to be replaced twice.
- Rattles and squeaks everywhere.
And a lot lot more of small breakdowns and annoying problems.
No wonder the Laguna has a 5 star EuroNCAP rating, it makes people so miserable they want to crash the car on purpose. This car is so notoriously bad that you would risk your life driving it in a canal just to get rid of it and claim the insurance money. Luckily it was a leased car so I didn't have to worry about the cost to replace the countless parts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
