Our 2008 Torrent GXP

Took advantage of the rebates in January and was able to the GXP for the same price as a standard Torrent. Great little SUV for the money, the performaance is better than expected, although no match for the Grand Prix GXP I had before. Fuel ecomony is 23 to 6 point higher than I had the past 3 years. The spoiler top blew off in a windstorm and the service replaced the unit quickly.
Fun to Drive

We rented a 2008 Torrent to get us to Daytona and back in Feburary. Driving it, it feels light in the steering, but it is very responsive. It does have some pep too! The MPG truly is 24 mpg hwy. I kept track of it. A neat little feature it had was this warning came on the dash stating ice may be present on road surface. (I guess due to outside temp and humidity, the car figured there would be ice). Coming home, we hit very cold temps. and black ice on a bridge. It felt like the car slowed by itself and we never slid, like we would have in our older car. Nice safety feature! If the MPG were a bit better, I'd definitely consider getting one of these. Of course, it would have to have all the bells and whistles that our rental had! All in all, I think it was a decent auto.

This is a great car. I bought it used with very little mileage and its great. The interior feels upgraded to the other suvs I looked at. Not mention it has more features. Overall, very pleased with my car.

We absolutely love this car. It handles incredibly in all weather. We drove on a road in the mountains that recommended tire chains due to no winter plowing, but the Torrent rolled right along as if it were on dry pavement. It is comfortable, safe, and has plenty of room for someone over 6 feet tall to sit in the back. I have had it for 2 months and have over 7000 miles on it--I drive about 150 miles a day, on both highway and in the city. It took four years to decide on a car that I would love as much as my old Volvo wagon, and I'm so glad we picked this one.

I think this is a wonderful vehicle. Perfect size for those who want a midsize SUV. Very roomy especially for those who don't have kids. Eventhough this is just a pleasure vehicle for me I am very pleased with it. Haven't had the chance to test drive in the snow but am confident that it will do just fine. Have never had a problem with wet roads or driving in the rain. Maybe some people just don't know how to drive in the snow and rain. Plus who wants to take such a nice vehicle and drive in the snow and take the chance of damaging it.

Since my husband is a GM employee we have always bought GM cars. Unfortunately I would not recommend this car. It is horrible in winter weather or rain slicked roads. We have the traction control option which doesnt do anything as far as Im concerned. I wish we would have got the all wheel drive option maybe my experience with this vehicle would have been better. Otherwise anyone looking to buy a 2008 Torrent?
LUV mY Torrent!
I bought this vehicle in March and I love it! handles Great. I run a cleaning business and have plenty of space in the back for my things and room for all my kids. Would highly recomend this.
