My wife and I recently bought a Certified used Toyota Venza 2009 with the 20" tires and rims, privacy glass, roof rack, and special bumper.
So far this is a fantastic vehicle and fun to drive also gets great gas mileage.
We can easily put our 3 month old in the spacious back seat!
Furthermore I'm 6 foot 2 inches tall and have plenty of room.
The ride is sound.
The stability control and all wheel drive feels secure on the road.
The 4 cylinder is just a bit loud when you step on the gas, however with the six disc CD player, SAT radio, and MP3 player who cares!
Overall I think this is great vehicle for a family that dose not want to buy a dreaded Mini Van.
