After 10 years of Hondas, and with leases running out, my wife and I went shopping.
Toyota was very willing to help us.
While we had our sights on a 2010 Rav,
when my wife saw the 2009 Venza, she got excited about its Lexus quality looks, feel in a 4 cylinder crossover.
The car has 16000 miles on it but was practically immaculate. We have driven it in town and on I25, and it drives like a dream.
Gas mileage has been creeping up to the 26 mpg level. it has a feel of richness for both appointments and handling. And all those cup holders......a PU driver's dream.
CON: Only negative is trying to find the cargo cover.
The Toyota cover is over $800! Internet still costs $575.
Set up inside is very comfortable.
My wife has back problems, so the clearance and seat height adjustments are a definite PLUS.
Handles very sweetly. Hands free phone is very nice.
Overall quality shows.
