2008 Torrent GXP

2008 Pontiac Torrent TM - Chicago, IL 12/08/2009

Have driven this car for 2 months now. Acceleration is very strong (264 hp). Not quite used to the 6-speed auto trans yet, car tends to shift a lot more than I'm used to, but I'm sure I will get used to it. Love the styling and performance. Handles like a sports car, yet has the functionality of a small SUV. Interior does not have a cheap feeling, but not luxurious either. Very easy to park and has good vision out of the rear windows. Signature Pontiac "growl" heard from the exhaust. Getting about 22-23 mpg with 70% hwy/30% city driving. If 100% hwy, could probably get upper 20's mpg. Haven't driven in snow yet. Positive features: rear split bench seats that fold down and the bench can move forward or backward to provide either more cargo room or leg room for rear passengers, styling, 264 HP provides a lot of power, 18" wheels, Pioneer stereo, attractive in and out Negative features: poor design of personal storage on and near the dash for cell phone, coins, or other small personal items, cargo net supports are placed next to the rear door and not near the center of the cargo area where it could be more functional

2008 Pontiac Torrent RedSox Jay - Glen Allen, VA 12/28/2010

While overall I like my Pontiac Torrent, as I continue to drive it, I have found several items that I wish I could improve. The passenger seat has a hard plastic edge support which often pinches, or bruises passengers exiting the vehicle. There are no clips in the back seat of the vehicle to hang clothes, or dry cleaning. These are very commonly found in most other vehicles. There are no handles for passengers to hold onto when encountering a tight turn. Lastly, the cup holders, while present, are not conveniently located. While none of these issues has a significant impact on my overall satisfaction with the vehicle, or its performance, each is something that I will consider during my next vehicle puchase, hopefully many years from now. Thank you.
