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


Absolutely horrible and because you now must deal with GM they don't want to recall these vehicles because that would cause them to fix a problem that Pontiac created.I have owned one for almost 2 years and I have had nothing but problems,within a month of owning it the radio didn't work, the lock on the drivers door costs 300 to fix because unless you actually try to open it while it is locked you would of never known it doesn't lock, the rear windshield wiper motor went, the wheel bearings are 300 a piece, and because of how they are made it is common for rocks and sticks to get into the cv shaft and cause 200 in damage.Stabilitrak & ABS light constantly on & off.

Worst Features

If you try and talk to GM they will say it is normal wear and tear and refuse to reimburse you anything at all..Just recall the car and offer the customers a GM product. It's better than not taking care of your customers and in the long run you would be creating more business for GM.
