2007 Pontiac Torrent 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Guess I got lucky, I love my Torrent! We downsized from a Chevy Suburban. Sure there are little things like the chrome on the shifter, a spot on the outside mirrors can catch the sun just right @ 0600 & the rubber seal on the front windows can come loose, needing pushed back in, but overall, very reliable car. Handles great in snow, mud, rain & in the fields. Other cars slip & slide, mine stays true, haven't felt this good behind the wheel since dads '80 Auto 4WD AMC Eagle, my '80 Mazda GLC (rear wheel drive) & my '93 Subaru Loyale (on demand 4WD). Folks carried star route mail rts, we've driven all kinds of cars in all kinds of conditions. We find a car we like, we try & keep it!


Best Features

Can switch between All-wheel drive & two Wheel drive. Handles great! All the boys wrestling gear, track gear and rodeo gear fits fine with plenty of leg room to spare. Love the get up and go the engine has..thank goodness for cruise control ;o)


Worst Features

No chrome on the shifter, on outside mirrors-use a black matte rubber halfway up to reduce glare in the top inside corner, better fitting rubber seal in windows..just little things, mostly cosmetic and I do miss that 2nd backseat from my Suburban, to separate my boys

Review

Bought it used last year. First rain storm found out how poor it handles in the rain. Traction control is scary when it comes on. It came with four good snow tires but is total useless in the snow. When on ling trip this summer and had reasonable trip except when it rained. Found that the spare tire compartment fills with water when it rains. Lost right side from stereo and the turn signal has no sound. First and last GM product.


Best Features

High seating position


Worst Features

Move power windows buttons to door Fix leaky hatch seals Replace traction control Better folding rear seat Have Honda design it.

Review

I purchased this vehicle in 2007 and unfortunately totaled this vehicle recently. This vehicle saved my life. I walked away from a major accident with bruises. Vehicle is great on gas and is fun to drive. Cup holder and emergency brake are placed in a poor position but everything else is exceptional. Never purchase AFTER market products with this vehicle.. Dealer installed sunroof and it caused battery failure many times. Also, I thought this truck did not ride well in rain and snow but now realize after reading this site realize this may be a MAJOR fault with this vehicle. Traction control is poor and ironically my accident occurred in the rain..


Best Features

Styling of vehicle and excellent crash test rating. Vehicle is very roomy


Worst Features

cup holder and emergency brake is in the worst spot in the world..

Review

I bought my vehicle in June 07 and less than 6 mths later the back tires locked up (while I had my 2 mth old in the car!) and the stabilitrak lights came on. Brought it to the dealer and they fixed (so I thought). One month after my warranty ran out, the light came on again and my steering wheel locked up. I didn't bring it back to the dealer, but figured out it must b a computer glitch. If I turn my car off wait a few seconds then turn it back on, the light normally goes off and the wheel unlocks. This must be a problem with this particular vehicle! Don't purchase this vehicle in an awd! The paint on the window buttons located by the stick shift rubbed off. Looks like crap now. Seat stitching pulled apart


Best Features

Plenty of leg room in the back seat. Nice size cargo area.


Worst Features

The inside features are made very cheaply. Kinda like a mobile home vs a house. Apparently has several computer glitches!
