About Pontiac Torrent

As a division trying to re-establish its performance-car credentials, Pontiac's decision to add the Torrent SUV to its line may, at first glance, seem a bit off the mark. But, given the public's appetite for smaller, more fuel-efficient SUVs and Pontiac's new-found knack for creating vibrant and youthful vehicles, the 2009 Pontiac Torrent's creation seems a logical approach to winning over younger buyers. Although the Torrent isn't really all-new (it shares its platform with the Chevrolet Equinox), it does offer a handsome and sporty exterior, a roomy interior with an adjustable rear seat, a standard V6 engine and the option of all-wheel drive.

"I would not recommend this vehicle due to computer problems that contradict with the transmission. If the computer is faulty, the car becomes out of control and accelerates when stepping on the break. Also, there are many times where the key will not turn in the ignition and it will take at least 2 minutes to try and get the key to turn."

"I have never had any problems with my Torrent. Great on gas, I can get 28.8 miles per gallon on the highway. Even with 2 kids I have plenty of room."

"I like my Torrent, a couple of minor issues that need to be addressed but not worth a bad review."
