1998 Vauxhall Sintra CDX 3.0 V6 from UK and Ireland
Having seen one with over 140,000 miles on it, I think I am looking at a long time ownership
We had water penetration in to the bulkhead, at the drivers side.
This occurred when the front washers were used, IE: use of the pump to spray water on the screen. It was a simple job to fix, as the pipe that feeds the water had come away from the connector.
Super glue was used and this is now, not a problem.
The car is very large inside and easily accommodates my family with room to spare.
All seats have 'proper 'seat belts, except the center row, center seat. Can't have it all.
As for speed, being a family car comes first, but if you want FAST this is like the driving a torpedo.
Road holding is great, thanks to the wide body and large tyres. Anti-lock breaks are there in case you get in to difficulty.
All round disc brakes stop you in plenty of time.
Vision is great, all round.
You feel very safe in this car as it has Side impact protection AIR BAGS in the seats, wow!!!. As well as two in the front.
Well done Vauxhall.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
