1998 Pontiac Trans Sport

by Pontiac07 on 06-05-2013
Excellent Vehicle
I had a 98 FWD Trans Sport for 2 years, I was the 3rd owner and although it was an old car, it did deliver! Performance wise I found it excellent, very sporty, sprinted with ease. The only issue this minivan has is the radiator leak, gasket, break lines (after 15 years they all seem to have the same problem).

The fuel economy was unbelievable!! 10.5% consumption OR 24 MPG

Unfortunately I had to give it away, but not without feeling sorry I had to....

2007 Pontiac Torrent

by Pontiac07 on 06-05-2013
Good ride but could have been better
I loved the exterior of my 2007 Torrent AWD and was excited about the interior but after driving it for a while I noticed that the good and the bad:

THE BAD
The outlet is inconveniently located (too low to plug a Bluetooth device and talk), the front seats have no arm rests, the fuel economy is not what they say it is...it takes a full tank for 500 km driving little city and mostly hwy no more than 100-110 km/h. I used to have a '98 FWD Pontiac Trans Sport, amazing minivan, in short...a SPRING CHICKEN...on the same size fuel tank I was driving 600 km...maybe AWD takes up more fuel
Well, the Torrent is more like a Grandma who's really trying....

The GOOD
Plenty of leg room both at the front and back, the back seat is adjustable, which is great, the cargo area is fairly large. It drives nicely but I find it kind of lazy when accelerating, especially up hill. Overall it seems pretty "healthy" for a 5 yr old car

All in all, I think there are better choices for the $$, but if you really want a Torrent, is not bad but you have to put up with these things
