Unbelievable Vehicle!
By Dave on 04/01/09 18:28 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I bought my new Venza in January from Jerry's Toyota in Baltimore, and have loved it from the beginning! The ride, handling and exterior styling is great! Drives like a Lexus (traded in a RX300).

An OK crossover

Vehicle

2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (2.7L 4cyl 6A)

Review

Smooth if no bumps on the road. But you can feel the bumps. It is not luxious, but comfortable enough. The seat is a little hard (nylon seat). It is not as comfortable as my old camry. The seats are definitely big. Definitely roomy. Good exterior and interior design. The plastic material inside is cheap. Decent mpg for a large car. Mine is 4 cylinder and the computer read out is 24.7 mpg, not sure how accurate it is. 4 cylinder is not that powerful, but good enough for daily commute. Passanger seats and backseats are very roomy and comfortable. It took me a while to get used to different control knots in the front panel.

2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I have only had the car for 1 day but want to give my initial impressions and will update later. This car is a good composition of beauty, comfort and fun to drive. The car corners well, there is plenty of room for the driver and passengers. I have the blizzard white and it is much prettier than the blue, green and red that I have seen. I have not seen the other colors. The dealer that I purchased it from was more than fair, very respectful and made the experience fun. I would recommend both the car and the dealer.

Great Car

2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I was shopping to replace my 07 Highlander. The 09 Highlander was simply too big. I saw the Venza and gave it a test drive. It's a great car. The Toyota people know what they are doing. The Venza is well designed, very comfortable, fun to drive, well made, great on gas, and priced well. It's actually a station wagon (remember those?) for modern drivers. Toyota hit a home run. This is a no-brainer.

Review

Bought the car in December for my wife and we love it. Just finished a 16 hour drive and stepped out feeling great! Most comfortable car I have ever driven (I am 67). It hauls 4 people and golf clubs with no problem. We have the Blizzard Pearl and it really draws the looks and comments.

Great Value

2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Features like Keyless Go, Bluetooth (Stereo and Hands-Free Cellular), Automatic Tailgate, Remote Folding Seat Lever, 20 in wheels, and rear-view camera make this a great value. The ride is nice and sedan-like. The wide stance makes it very stable. The stated fuel economy puts it among the best in its class. The fit and finish is like a Lexus. We've owned BMW, Landrover and this meets or exceeds them both. The legroom could be better in the back, but it is OK. You could spend 60k for all of this and not get as refined a package. The resale should be OK too. This is our first Toyota, so we will see about that.

Toyota Does It Again!
By Stratman on 03/23/09 17:59 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

We traded in our 2007 Camry SE v-6 to purchase the Venza after my wife saw it and felt it was the hatchback she had been looking for. The Camry, I feel, never got the recognition it deserved for being a true hot rod both in sheer speed and handling while also being quite docile in everyday driving. The Venza is like a Camry wagon with the same drive train, length and same suspension as the SE model. The Venza is well appointed and with a few options added, is really nice. The size of the vehicle is just right for most, the seating is very comfortable, and even the six speaker stereo (which we have) is clean and crisp in sound. Sitting next to my built '77 Cherokee provides quite a contrast.

Uncommon Beauty
By Deborah H on 03/22/09 13:55 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Comfortable and sleek, fun to drive! What I like most about this car is the spacious interior and uncommon looks of exterior design. Also, it drives comfortably and handles nicely. What I don't like about it is that I hear some noise during sudden acceleration, and hard to change lanes and make turns during traffic. Still, I think the VENZA is fantastic car because it drives like Camry and rides high like SUV.

quality build?

Vehicle

2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Had car for 5 days only. Been in shop for defective steering, clunk noise in rear of car over bumps. Rattles everywhere on paved roads. Car has been in shop 3-9-09 and not back yet. High trade in on 2008 rav4 sport but paid full price for car. No deals here! My 08 Avalon is much better and so is my 07 tundra crewmax. The 08 rav4 was super too! Venza? what happened?

Review

I love this car. I drove it for a 200 mile trip and it drove like a dream. My kids in the back feel miles away from the driver.
