    Nice Vehicle Overall — 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....and the fuel economy.

    Pros: The back seat is huge.  Plenty of interior cargo space.  PHENOMENAL FUEL ECONOMY

    Cons: Front wheel drive.   Could be a little more responsive

    I'd Buy Another One — 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 Dealership and GM frustrations the vehicle is worth it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Universally useful! Dog crates, kids, passengers, camping, trips to the dump.  Surprisingly good on gas.

    Cons: Small design flaws and some cheap parts that GM wont own up to are frustrating.

    Great Car — I loved this car. The performance on it was great for a small crossover. For being an american car the build quality was pretty good. I thought the appearance on it looked very good. This was an awesome car to drive and the sound that it made was amazing!

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Great for the value

    Cons: Pontiac is defunct

    Torrent — Having three kids, and a very busy schedule, this Torrent surpasses what I need right now. Great on the highway as well and in the city. Excellent on fuel, and it is well within my budget. Awesome sound system, love cranking the tunes and just drive.

    Pros: Excellent on Fuel

    Cons: Can't think of one right now..

    Pontiac — This new Pontiac is pretty good. It lacks alot or courtesy features like lighting under the dash and doors and its alittle clumsy in turns, but the AWD is awsome. This SUV is very hard to get off its course in the snow. Not bad for under $25,000.

    Pros: AWD, looks awsome, tons of room inside

    Cons: Nose-heavy, interior is kinda cheap looking.

    Crossover Suv — I did my research before finally selecting the Torrent. The car is solid and performs beautifully. Interior is quiet. I will truly enjoy owning this car. This is a step above the Saturn Vue with regards to construction and power. It is well worth the time for a test drive.

    Pros: Solid construction

    Cons: none
