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

problem #1

Jul 152010

Torrent 6-cyl

  • 30,000 miles


First event low tire warning took to dealer, dealer stated it was a valve stem failure. Dealer replaced under warranty. Second event low tire pressure warning came on, wife tried to check tire pressure with hand held tire gauge stem broke off went flat suddenly, third event repeat of same tire valve stem snapped off while driving, and pulling a trailer. Dealer stated they could not put a standard valve stem on the car because the factory one is considered a safety device. 35 years of driving and a piss poor safety device nearly gets me killed, vehicle is a 2009 Pontiac Torrent with under 50,000 miles. Also persistent problem of loosing tire pressure. I've never had a car that required daily tire pressure checks typically a daily visual and once a week is pressure test is adequate, but not this lemon.
