Okay then, had enough of tyre kickers over the past week.
It would make someone a good runabout or a donor car.
It has up to the 29th April then off to the vehicle dismantlers it goes.

The car can now be bought for 350 no offers.

It is with regret that I am putting my car up for sale.  :'(
After four years of ownership it is time to move on as my circumstances have changed.
We have bought another dog and I fancy a change. So, a genuine reason for sale :y

The car is a 2000 Vauxhall Omega 2.5 automatic CDX in Krypton Green.
It has 148,000 genuine miles on the clock.
It has been serviced by myself following the OOF guides and has its last oil change
in January using genuine GM parts. This included a breather cleansing.
The cam cover gaskets are all good showing no signs of leaking.
The car has no cooling issued and gets to temp after about four miles
The tyres have good tread on them, including the spare.
The discs and pads are all good and working.
It is in need of a cam belt change. Which I have bought, but not fitted.
The car has poly bushed wishbones, new rear doughnuts, a good battery, a good Eternal exhaust system,
an AR35 gearbox with new thrust washer (this copes with 350Nm of torque as opposed to the standard
AR25 which only handles 250Nm of torque)

On starting the car self checks and all dash lights go off in order.
All of the CDX equipment is present and working.
It also has fitted, a working elite rear blind.
A Panasonic USB mp3/CD/radio is fitted but I would like to keep this (present from SWMBO ::) )
Everything works as it should.
It has the usual age related marks but no damage. However, the rear arches are beginning to bubble.
I have a huge amount of paper work (receipts etc) from both myself and previous owners

The car is also fitted with a Witter tow bar and this is complemented with twin electrics.
In addition it has coil spring assisters not the rubber doughnut type.
It has only been used for light caravan towing (995Kg MTPLM)
The car is due an MOT in July 2013 and is due RFL in May 2013

I have been very happy with this car and it has never let me down. (Apart from the old gear box
which I swapped out for the AR35 ;D ;D [size=78%])[/size]. But it is time to let her go :'(

Price: 500 or a sensible offer

General Car Chat / Re: Laguna 1.8 estate 01-07 50,000miles
« on: 07 March 2013, 22:03:46 »
I went to look at it today.
Bearing in mind what I drive presently, I compared it to that.

I was interested in it due to looking into an estate for the dog and a little better fuel economy.

What a vile machine. Poorly built, tacky and tinny could describe it. ::)
The cabin was very small with too little headroom front and rear.  The seats felt unsupportive, but then I am tall.
Upon driving it seemed gutless. Well it would wouldn't it  ???
Both front windows failed to operate. He said regulator failure is common on these  ::)
The rear wiper assembly was missing. Totally.... ::)
It had new rear tyres due to uneven wear across the treads. Worrying.
No tow bar or electrics (not the cars fault but it would have helped)
It was MOT'd for 11 months but no tax.
I think I will stay with the Omega for now. I know where I am with it. (Its not French  ;D ;D )
When the time comes a replacement will be hard to find

Thanks for your input folks, both positive and negative :y :y

Obviously, people only comment on their cars when they go wrong....a lot.
We need a web site for happy satisfied owners. All Laguna II made can't be bad.....can they  :-\

Thanks folks!!

Have been reading the reviews. Good God Alive!!
It would be hard to come across a car with less problems.
The Mk I seems bearable as does the Mk III but the Mk II all seem to have been made on a Friday ;D

I think I would describe the Laguna as a booby trap waiting to happen. :-\

My motive in looking is that we have a new dog, a Rottie, and I thought it may use less fuel.  ;D

Does anyone have any experience of these?

If so, could you give me some feedback. Please keep it constructive, not just good/bad buy/avoid or derisory.

What should we look for apart the obvious?

Thanks in advance folks  :y :y

What was wrong with the old drums, cant say I have ever had a need to replace a drum.
They were very scored for some reason and grinding when applying the brakes....

Indeed. Apart from the grinding, they worked perfectly before.
