Great Family Car. — Our family took this car on many long trips and it always impressed. Gets great fuel mileage with plenty of power for interstate driving and handles extremely well. All interior seats are fully adjustable even the second row, comes in handy on long trips.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It has great power with 22+ mpg, handles excellent and has only required routine maintenance.

Cons: Seats five.

It's A Bad Ass When It's On The Road — It is spacious and a performer, delivering value for money. the only but I've got on this ride is that it is a pocket drainer (fuel economy). Driving with L4 in the city helps save fuel and I have a Vehicle Performance Enhancer connected.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It has the power and the kick that I need

Cons: I can not hang my jacket, it consumes fuel pretty much

Good And Reliable — Excellent head and leg room for tall or big folks in both front and rear seating areas with ample power, however it is not big enough to accommodate luggage for a 7+ day trip to wineries to collect 10+ cases of wine

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Interior room

Cons: Not big enough

Really Like The Torrent. Interior Was A Big Plus For Me. — Great car. Not bad on gas and very roomy than most small SUVs in its class. Back seat slides forward or back. Interior is way better than the base model Equinox I had before this. I love the black interior with the read lights from the instrument panel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roomy size SUV that won't kill you at the pump.

Cons: V6 power was good but compared to more rescent models out now, its needs to tone up a bit.

Excellent Buy Just Wish I Could Add More Accessories — for a 3.4L v-6 its pretty powerful. i don't like the rear drum brakes but i will deal with it. built pretty sturdy but parts are pretty pricey when you wreck them. styling is pretty nice and i like the body lines. gas mileage runs 18-24. i run mobile 1 so i change my oil every 5k. all in all it's pretty fun and reliable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: pretty spacious and i like the frt pass. seat folds flat

Cons: cant really think of any. dont have any recalls so far and i check about 1x a week

Torrent — It was a decent SUV I liked the space but the 3.4L they were stuffing in these things was the biggest turd ever. You cant give a 5000lb+ vehicle 185hp its just not enough to pass,tow,or really move at all...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Big

Cons: SLOW OMG SLOW

Not Bad — I like it for the sunroof, kicking sound system, and the color because it changes. Used to hold a grudge against it but now I appreciate her after my accident. It's the hip mom mobile for the anti-mini vans moms like me ;-)

Pros: stereo system

Cons: gas mileage

Clear — Bought the car in december 2006 and it preforms well the only problem was that that year had a bad starter but the dealership replaced it free under warranty. The handling is sport tuned and is veryy smooth at higher speeds, it drives like a car and has a very nice appearance. the red gauges at night are nice to look at.

Pros: GET UP AND GO!!!

Cons: Stiff leather seats, suprisingly bad in snow even with AWD

Nice Vehicle Overall By HumbleMan

For what it is, the vehicle runs and drives very well. This is rated at 185 hp. Could use a few more ponies to really impress. But the two biggest appeals to this vehicle for me was the back seat... Read More

I'd Buy Another One By Harbud

I really do like this vehicle and it has been fantastically reliable. GM has some owning up to do as far as gasketing and water leaks as well the TPMS sensors that keep corroding. Despite my crummy D... Read More
