I have had the same problem since January 2013 with my 2009 Pontiac Torrent, on January 28, the lights came on and power was reduced to 40 km/h when I was doing 120 on the highway, brought it to the dealership for fixing, the replaced the throttle body and flashed computer under warranty. Car worked fine until March 3 when the lights came back on (repair Stabilitrak and traction systems but no power loss, good thing cause I was again on the highway), brought it in this morning, they replaced the EGR valve and flashed the computer again, again under warranty...need to take the highway tonight, hopefully it doesn't come back. Seems the problem affects all Torrents since 2006, you would think they would find a fix that works after such time.

Good afternoon lapnat,
I see you're using kilometers per hour as your unit of measurement - are you writing from outside of the United States? If you would like for us to get information for you on customer service in your region, let us know.

The issue with the traction control and the stablitrak seems to be a known issue and that a lot of people with this vehicle are having this problem. In addition to these issues I am currently having an issue with my all wheel drive, my abs is light is on and the check engine light is on because of a cylinder misfire issue. I have had my torrent into the dealer to be services several times for different issues from the traction control and stablitrak being serviced to the paint peeling within a year of having it. When the paint peeling issue was taken care if it was not done well and looks awful to this day. my car is out of warranty now and I'm at a loss for words about the several issues pccuring at once with this car. Since some of the issues seem to be issues that a lot of people are having I would have thought gm would have sent out some type of recall or a special service plan for the known issues.

#48 of 50 Service stabilitrak warning 2008 Torrent
Apr 12, 2013 (3:43 pm)
This just happened to me again tonight. I was stopped at a light it's pouring rain out. The car started shaking hard but no lights came on. The light turned green I went and it seemed fine. I pulled over and stopped and it seemed fine. I got on the highway and less than 5 mins the service stabilitrak service warning cane on. This happened a couple of years ago also and I took it to the dealership for service under warranty. The car has 128k and is no longer under warranty. This is obviously a problem. Why hasn't GM recalled this??

#50 of 50 stabilitrack issues
Oct 29, 2013 (1:21 pm)
I purchased my 2007 Torrent less than 3 months ago. Last night after stopping for gas I started my car and the warning lights came on about the stabilitrack and I had NO power steering. I shut off the car hoping it would reset but had to drive home with NO power steering. Next morning car started with full steering, error light still on but then shut off a few miles down the road. I drove the car straight to the dealer. A week before while on a road trip I was on the highway running about 80 mph when a weird feeling in the steering started I looked at the dashboard and it said I was only doing 40mphs and I had to pull off the road shut off the car and it reset it self. I am sad to see All of these similar reports!!!!!! Have a great dealer who is trying to help with contacting GM. Sad and not feeling this is a safe car to drive!!!!!!
