Comfortable Cross Over
By Rob L. on


2008 Pontiac Torrent 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


This is a very good riding cross over type SUV. It gets very good gas mileage on the highway - about 25 to 26. The controls are pretty good, but the steering and handling on the base model is unacceptably sloppy. If you like this vehicle, get the GXP model which has a different and tighter steering system. The center console could be a lot better and more useful - it lacks storage and the center mounted power window buttons are not intuitive.

Best Features

XM Radio; good gas mileage; comfortable ride. Sight and sound package (stereo upgrade and sunroof)

Worst Features

Tighter steering; The night time instrument lighting (red on red) is very difficult to read at a glance. The list price on this vehicle seems high compared to Korean competition - you should be able to do pretty well with dealer and factory incentives. The console between the seats could be better
