I have a 2002 52 plate Renault Laguna here at the moment, 1.9DCi Expression, 86k, MoT until Jan 2010 and tax until May, 2 owners. All this for 1295! I did say it's a 2002 car for 1295 didn't I?

Been sat here a week and I haven't had a single enquiry. Do people not know a cheap car when they see one anymore? Or are Laguna's really bad news?

Hi Kev

That is a cheap car but I think Renaults have a slightly dodgey reputation.
I owned a 52 plate one a couple of years ago and only had it 3 months before the turbo blew and knackered the engine, lost a few quid on that one, and an old mechanic friend of mine said he thought they tended to use what was ever on the shelf at the time to build em! parts for the same models allways seemed to change Mad

Did it sell in the end?

No that is superb value and I would certainly take a chance on that, yes 2002 is very recent and that is nothing money. Saw a 2001 at auction no MOT but it went for 600 and I thought that was stupidly cheap,

My main car is not a banger sorry to say, I have a 55 plate BMW 330 vert, however my steed of choice for work, shopping, in fact everything is a 2003 Laguna DCi Initiale Sportwagon.

If you dont know anything about these cars then stay away as no amount of bangernomics will save you, I know I have tried.

Turbo's fail...........full stop

You only need to register on the Renault forums to find out.

I bought this car as a 3 year old car, 3 years ago with a high mileage after being a repmobile.

Its a very luxurious barge and had most of its work done whilst it belonged to the rep.

However, these are the things Ive done myself;

Repaired climate fascia circuit board (resoldered)
Replaced heater matrix flow pipes (heater matrix is roten BTW)
Repaired rear hatch button
Tied up undertray with nylon tie's
front brakes and discs
Top and bottom engine mount.
Numerous tyres
Rear brake pads
Glued lots of pieces of interior plastic Rolling Eyes


Things to do;

Car doesnt lock, repair keycard - rear door solenoid

Apart from that it runs like a bag of spanners but is great on the motorway it sits at 80mph all day in 6th gear at 1.5k revs and 50mpg.

The car had done 120k when I got it and 3 years on its now on 180k, I dont think it has long left but I paid 4500 for it as a 3 year old car, its worth nothing now really so is getting the bangernomics treatment until its died totally.

Passed its MOT straight through last 3 years also. lol!

Thanks for that input, your Renault certainly seems fragile but at least you are handy enough to sort it out rather than spend a fortune at the garage. Good decision to run until it drops too.
