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

problem #1

May 292006

Torrent 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,300 miles


While driving down a residential street, there was a wobble in the front right of the car. The car suddenly spun out of control and crashed into a telephone pole. Both air bags deployed. My son, who was driving, was slightly injured and burned from the air bags. There is significant body damage to the right front of the vehicle. The body shop that has the car said the right front knuckle broke thereby causing the tire to fall off and loss of steering control. Other additional damage is a bent frame and bent brake calipers. I bought this car new from the dealer on 4/29/06.
