    Default Laguna III wagons - sitting next to the rocking horse shite?

    I have enjoyed my Laguna III wagon for a few months now. I will share my experiences later on.

    What I find curious is that I have NEVER seen another Laguna III wagon in my travels. I have seen a few sedans (hatches) and earlier shapes but the wagons are a rare beastie indeed. Chatting with Dave Collier this week underlined that fact.

    Does anyone here drive a 'goon III wagon apart from me?

    My daughter in Sydney has one. A 2010 diesel. Only driven to work and on an local trips on weekends it may have done 15,000 k's by now.

    If the Laguna had as many features as the Latitude does, I probably would still have my Laguna wagon today! A great looking car, with good fuel economy, which handles well.

    There are three that I know of locally, but yeah, they're a pretty rare sight.

    Yep, they are rare. In the "rocking horse poo" category. I drive one - here in Melbourne, Have had it for 3 years and I do not recall seeing another one at all!

    Great car. Comfortable, good fuel economy, nice driving manners - both tootling about the suburbs, cruising on the highway and spirited driving on winding roads (where the "manual shift" option with the auto trans comes into its own).

    My car is now at around 90,000 km and I'm just starting to notice that the auto trans shifts are slighlty less unobtrusive than they once were. The transmission is supposedly "sealed for life" but I'm about to get it serviced and the fluid refreshed. Will be interesting to see what (if any) difference that makes.
