Hey envoysle! I just purchased my 2006 Pontiac Torrent about two weeks ago and absolutely love it! I did have a G6 but I had so many problems with it, plus I needed more room but refused to drive a standard size SUV and immediately fell in love with the Torrent after a short test drive.
Mine has the V6, but I decided to go with the front wheel drive versus the AWD, I didn't see the need for it, but so far I love the vehicle and everything about it. Drives great, very easy to manuever and definitely easy to get in and out of and has a ton of room on the inside. You will not be disappointed in the Torrent, trust me.

Has anyone trailered a boat with a Torrent? I need to be able to pull 3000lb boat and trailer.

I've had a class 3 hitch installed 3rd party Hitch is Draw-tight. I have a two motorcycle trailer and a couple 400+ street bikes. Careful though read the manual section about towing.... MAX load w/passengers and baggage/beverage of your choice IN the truck is supposed to be 3000lbs. I'd also make sure the tounge weight is <500 lbs. Yes a little gut-less on the hills but no overheat or trans problems. I am AWD

I do have a GM Card, but only the original GM card holders are allowed to cash in the full $3500 on a single car. Plus you can only accrue $500/year, so 7 year wait to save that kind of money. If you converted your account or any new card holders have discount limits of $1000-2000 depending on the model.
And using the original GM card GM dealerships does not gain you the double points.
I'll probably still get the Torrent, but I'm concerned about the cheap engine that was put into it.

If you go to the GM card site there is a list of how much they allow on each model. The Torrent and Equinox have a limit of $1,000.

A fully loaded Torrent will sell in my area for about $3,000 off sticker. Plus a $2500 rebate

In Scottsdale Az the dealers will take as much as $3000 off sticker and there is a rebate.

Just picked up my Torrent last Monday and drives real nice.. I don't understand all the fuss about the 3.4L engine but it is nice and smooth, quite and accelorates nice... I Traded in a Chevy Blazer 01 for it... The only couple of complaints I got are the sun visors are a bit cheezy and I really miss my dial a temperture climate control.. The power window switches are ok in the center however I kind a wished they light instead of total darkness... The leather package is nice... My friend drives the BMW X3 and he is considering on trading it in for the Pontiac Torrent. The color I picked is Black and it is amazing how much heads it turns... other then the Torrent Logo in the back there is nothing on the truck that says Pontiac.. I really do not understand why.. Ireally hoped that the the radio came with the MP3 when I got the sun and sound package... Pontiac should consider upgrading the radio to have the MP3 rather then giving you a 6 CD changer and no MP3...it seems that they went backwords on the technology...

glad to hear your torrent. we bought( wife's car) a black fwd torrent at christmas. we have 8200 miles on it. plenty of power, 23.5 - 27.8 mpg. oil life monitor came on at 5500 miles. no issues at all. the nice thing about the torrent is the rear doors make it easy for elderly people to get in and out. quiet,comfy and like you said "black turns heads".
