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.

2007 Pontiac Torrent Owner Comments

problem #4

Dec 082010


  • 57,198 miles


2007 Pontiac Torrent AWD. Having failure of ABS, stabil-trac system, AWD. Problem is intermittent. Occurs randomly. Dealer said it was an "electrical problem" however, all of their solutions have yet to fix the issue. Problem has been occurring since Sept 2010, dealership has had car 3 times, and has not resolved. The latest incident occurred while going down a steep hill, and the failure occurred, the car slid down the hill (no ABS, no AWD, no stability control), almost hit another car at the bottom of the hill due to the failure of the above.

Turning corner (right hand turn) in 3-4 inches of loose snow and the ABS light, traction control light and stabilitrac sensor all came on. Warning message of service stabilitrac soon displayed on control panel. After parking the car overnight, all warnings except ABS were off and ABS warning light went off after approximately 2 minutes. This has happened at least once a year for all three years I have owned the vehicle. It was repaired at the dealership where I purchased it twice and I was told there was nothing wrong once since the lights went off before I was able to get it to the dealer. Also intermittently seems to have a power drain for no reason and with no warning lights appearing on the dash display.
