Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2007 Pontiac Torrent?
It is very roomy in the back and has comfortable seats for the most part. I LOVE that you can move the back seat forward or back & recline them.
It looks great on the outside and has a smooth ride.
Tons of room throughout the vehicle. I like that there is a power port charging area for the back seat and cup holders that stow away.
Cons: How would you improve your 2007 Pontiac Torrent?
The cup holders up front are in a horrible spot, always in the way. You can't reach the power port underneath the armrest in front if you have the armrest down, especially with drinks in the cup holders. If you have a cell phone or iPod it is a pain to use the charger because of this. The little area in front of the shifter is inadequate to hold a phone or change or whatever. It is also dangerous to use it for storage because if you have to reach in front of the shifter when driving there is very little room to maneuver & there is a possibility of hitting the shifter while driving.
There needs to be an over the door handle on the passenger side. It is uncomfortable to get out of the passenger side because of the hard plastic side.
The front seat adjustments are not easy to reach while sitting in the seats & are very difficult to actually use.
The red dash lights are hard on the eyes, don't really like the red. Never thought about it but the glare from the reflective silver on the shifter is distracting while driving.
It's also hard to get used to the window controls on the middle on the shifter.
Having issues right now with my windshield wiper fluid pump not working and my driver side door lock not locking unless pushed by hand from the inside. I have no idea how many times the car was left sitting with this door unlocked until I realized this was happening. I only realized after I forgot that I had locked the car & then opened the door just to set the alarm off. Nice!
2007 Pontiac Torrent Review:
Overall, I would really love this vehicle if the kinks were worked out which will not happen now since they no longer make them. I guess if I want to get into a newer model of this style of car I will have to just purchase a Equinox since it is basically the same vehicle. Too bad!
