1998 Vauxhall Sintra CDX 3.0 V6 from UK and Ireland

Summary:

Having seen one with over 140,000 miles on it, I think I am looking at a long time ownership

Faults:

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.

General Comments:

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.

Yea, right. OK then if I was a first time visitor to this page would I have a clue as to what you where talking about? Yes, but I think you could have done it a little better. Instead of short answers you could have told the readers what you did to get it fixed and where you had to go to do it.

I sense you are not a happy owner and am sorry that you feel that way, as I am very happy with mine and sympathize with you for the distress you are suffering.

Summary:

A great large family car

Alarm would go off now and then for no apparent reason - now mended.

Nothing else.

Really pleased.

Rear sliding doors very good, especially for children.

Air conditioning is used most of the time and is really needed.

Some minor (but annoying) squeaks and rattles.

I purchased a 2.2CD Sintra in June 2000 and have been very pleased overall.

Fuel consumption is better than expected and it has good performance.

Seating arrangement with all 5 rear seats removable is excellent.

Only complaint is a rattle from the passenger windows. Open and shut them and the problem goes away for 4-5 weeks.

Air conditioning is very good, but this is my first car purchased with this facility.
