£3,250

Description:-
This is a fabulous car. I bought it new in July 2008, and the 72,000 miles (8,000 a year) have all been driven by myself and my wife. It was bought from, and has a full service history from Smiths Renault of Bretton Way, Peterborough. It even has a new cambelt, something almost all cars should have at around 50,000 miles but most don’t. There are a few cosmetic scratches but it still looks immaculate and is quite an eye-catcher. Some 2008 cars look dated but this still looks good amongst modern cars.

The Initiale was the top spec of the now discontinued Renault Laguna line-up and it came very well-equipped, but I also added several factory options such as the sunroof and upgraded sound and navigation systems.

Altogether this is a very well appointed car and you’ll not get better for its year.

The only downsides are:-

  • Private sale so no guarantee
  • Road Fund Tax is £300 a year
  • The satnav doesn’t accept postcodes
  • It is a nine-year-old car
  • Oh, and no funeral glass in the rear windows if you like the current fashion for privacy
      

The positives far outweigh the negatives:-

  • It has been 100% reliable for its entire life
  • MOT until 22nd July 2018
  • No funeral glass in the rear windows
  • You get a lot of car for the money
  • Lower spec 2008 Lagunas are on forecourts at £3,500 - £4,000
