The Chevrolet Uplander, Pontiac Montana SV6, Buick Terraza, and Saturn RELAY were introduced in the 2005 model year as replacements for the Chevrolet Venture, Pontiac Montana and Trans Sport, and Oldsmobile Silhouette. (A limited number of Chevrolet Ventures and Pontiac Montanas were produced for the 2005 model year.) The Pontiac Montana SV6 was discontinued after the 2006 model year, and the Buick Terraza and Saturn RELAY were discontinued after the 2007 model year. The Uplander was discontined after the 2008 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. However, the dummy's head bottomed out the airbag and hit the steering wheel. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar and roof rail.
Injury measures — High head accelerations occurred when the dummy's head hit both the steering wheel through the airbag and the B-pillar, indicating that head injuries would be possible in a crash of this severity. Injury measures taken from the neck, chest, and both legs indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions.
On the other hand the Pontiac Montana is still assembled in Canada for that market
