2006 Pontiac Torrent Owner Comments

problem #4

Torrent 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles


My sunroof drains clogs repeatedly which causes ankle deep water to puddle inside. I had to have it towed from work last month because it would not accelerate after rain leaked everywhere. In addition I had to bum a ride to work because it wouldn't accelerate due to the fact it was wet from the rain. When this happens the traction light comes on causing my car to lose speed. Although pedal is push all the way down to floor it will not accelerate. I would hate to be traveling on interstate and lose speed during rush hour.

Water leakage into the cabin of the car. Floorboards soaked after a heavy rain, and the electrical system is starting to short out.
