    Default Do you remember the Sintra?

    You know...that huge American MPV thingy which was rated as the worst car on sale in Britain by Top Gear in 2001. Remember?

    Here is another reason why should you never, ever to consider buying one of those things (Unless, of course you want to get rid of your mother-in-law) and never ever mention the word "Sintra" to a Vauxhall dealer salesman.

    Shouldn't be allowed on the road, no matter how affordable they may be.

    That vid is not for the Sintra. the Sintra is a Chevrolet Venture, which were on sale in the US up til very recenty. They did have some safety aspects to do with side impact.
    The car in this video is an 8 seat Montana. The Sintra was a 7 seat Venture.
    The main point is the US models have a much larger V6 engine The European models have a transverse 2.2 litre Vectra engine and have design mods to improve safety to comply with EU regs.
    They sold about 3000 in the UK and a lot are still on the road, but body parts have to be imported from the US so prices via main dealers are very high.
