Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Pontiac Torrent Owner Comments

Torrent 6-cyl

  • 100,894 miles


When I was driving down the highway I set my cruise control and after driving a little while it reset causing me to slow down in the middle of the highway. The second is when attempting to start my vehicle it wouldn't crank causing me to attempt two or three more times before it was successful. I took it too the dealership twice and they told me nothing was wrong with it. Third I woke up Sunday morning and I had no heat in my truck the heater is blowing cool air I was told that was the blend box. And when I went to fill up my gas tank this morning the fuel meter stopped at 3/4 of a tank when I know it is on a full tank. I have not replaced any parts at this time because I am aware it will cost several hundred dollars to fix the blend box.
