With out sounding byass.

Im a vauxhall man.

 

The volvo looks to be a cleaner car.

 

But both will be bad on fuel due to being big cars with small engines. Ull need to strangle them to make them move.

 

I had a vaux van 1.6 8v.

N it did 50 miles to a tenner. But fuels gone up since. Both seem nice cars gud luck bud

had a look at the 2 liter volvo yesterday bit ropey had a blowing exhaust a knocking sound (drive shaft i think) and a judder on the brakes. been in touch with a guy about a renault laguana estate the new shape (2002) 1.8 petrol sounds and looks ok i know the diesel versions of theses are unriliable but the petrol ones are meant to be better

Lagunas are nice but if they go wrong they are very expensive to put right . They are known for electrics playing up oh and the headlights if they go . Ouch very very expensive .
