Purchased car used with 8400 miles, just turned 12,000. We love our Venza! So classy and fun to drive. Lots of power with the V-6. Really good gas mileage 19/26. Ride is more sporty than the Lexus, but still comfortable enough for us. The Michelins do make a difference. We decided on the Venza vs another RX Lexus which we loved. Price was a strong consideration. We trust Toyota and think they are getting bad press. It's a keeper for us. A good looking SUV/crossover.
Love the power and good fuel economy. The sun roof and large glass panel makes the car that much more roomy feeling inside. The push button start and automatic hatch is wonderful!
seat extensions as in the BMW's for those of us who are taller! More luxurious leather; front end is a little too much Camryish!
