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.

2009 Pontiac Torrent Owner Comments

I have a 2009 Pontiac Torrent AWD. The passenger side front seat air bag 98% of the time wont turn on for my wife. She weighs 124 pds and that should be more then enough to set it to an "on" position. This is a safety hazard for her. I have had it to the dealer twice and they reset the system but I still have the same problem. The dealer tried to get GM to tell them what was up as to settings and such but they couldn't get anywhere with them. I contacted GM and complained and some person from another country who you could just understand said the same old thing about the car. I know that earlier Pontiac Torrents had this same problem and a recall was done. I think GM still has a problem. Thanks
