Renault laguna 3.0dci V6 coupe

Post by bxzx16v » 18 Feb 2015, 11:25

I've seen one of these for sale with the V6 3.0dci engine which is very rare as most have the 2.0dci, I've had the 175bhp dci myself and been very impressed with it. Is the 3ltr Isuzu sourced or pure Renault/Nissan. Any views welcome please.

I do wonder why these are picked sometimes, the BWM and Audi's lead this market generally, have better engines/superb chassis and at these young ages, they are much much better looked after by the dealerships/owners, hold the value better and do what you want them to better than the others.

That said, the car has good general reviews, the engine seems like a good modern one with nice power but with large oillers maybe to be hit soon, maybe petrol is better ?
I note some questions regarding the gearbox set up in some of the reviews.

Due to cost, not many engines are developed as unique company units these days, most companies are sharing the blocks/heads ect, so not really a concern these days. Marque loyalty is not based on engines these day for most companies, its the toys and plastic that counts for most customers .(RANTY bit :))
