I bought my Toyota Venza in '11 with 32K miles on it....
It's a fully loaded V6 AWD, everything except the DVD screen. I wrote a review a couple years ago, here is the updated version...
The drive is great, power and get up-n-go are awesome. Gas mileage is not the greatest, about 20-21mpg mostly city driving, but it's got almost as much room as a much larger SUV. Love the 20 inch wheels, hate buying tires for them. $1600 for 4 Michelins.
Have replaced the sun visors twice now on the driver side and once on the passenger side. I've read that I'm not the only one that has problems with the sun visors. The road noise is terrible at speeds above 50m mph. It sounds as if I'm driving with
a window open. I've checked all the rubber, they don't seem to be coming out of place or anything. The AC SUCKS! The salesguy at the local Toyota shop said the reason it is so weak is because the car is geared to older drivers who don't like to be blown out by their AC. ?? Whatever, just another lie from a salesman. It gets cold, just doesn't blow like you would think. Neither do any of the others ones on the car lot, I checked them all, none of them blow good. Other than those three things, I love the car and would get another one if they fix those issues.
