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

Review

The Venza caught my eye at an airshow and I had to have it. I decided on the 4 cyl model due to cost and economy. I'm not impressed with only 21 mpg and it gets worse when I drive a little harder. I don't like when the trans disengages during engine idle. Quick starts, but the engine needs a moment to wind up when accelerating or passing. The steering is very responsive, but seems to float a little when driving a straight path. The suspension is firm; I can feel the bumps and waves in the road. I did discover small circular scratch marks on the roof shortly after leaving the dealership; it has not been properly fixed.

Favorite Features

Interior/exterior looks. Many features standard. Comfort and roominess. Fit and finish. Extra storage with the rear seats folded down.

Suggested Improvements

Read my review. Toyota should offer, at no cost, an extended warranty on new model releases; owners of new models are going to get stuck with problems when the warranty expires.
