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.

2008 Pontiac Torrent Owner Comments

My air bag light on passenger side is not at all working. Off when someone is sitting in the seat. Now my electrical system makes all lights on my dash to come on. Traction control, check engine light, air bag, and so on and so on. Took car to service center and they said nothing was wrong..

For months the airbag, traction control and seatbelt lights have lit intermittently and stayed on for a few minutes or a few days. Sometimes they light immediately upon starting the vehicle or they might light up in a few minutes or in an hour or two. When there is a front seat passenger the airbag light stays on at least until the passenger gets out. After seeing the recalls for the 2007 Torrent, I believe GM has known all along about these issues and several recalls should have been issued for the 2008 Torrent.
