2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Love the vehicle. Hate having the Toyota sevice department know me by first name! All was well in the first year and half of owning our fully loaded 2010 Venza AWD. Recently the car developed a clunk in the rear, this required an extensive rear suspension repair. the noise has returned 3 months later! The transmission started to shudder and slip, Toyota replaced it saying its fairly common on the AWD model. This car only has 27,000 careful miles. I think it has more squeeks and rattles than the 02 Dodge Caravan that this Venza replaced.


Best Features

Exterior styling, Interior is well laid out and very comfortable. One of the better riding CUV's we drove.


Worst Features

Fuel economy is poor. Road and wind noise. And the Toyotas quality must be a thing of the past.

2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Vehicle has many rattles appear after 30k miles or so, transmission is getting a factory replacement as i write this (Toyota says transmission failures are common in our hilly area). Interior seat quality is poor, our leather is looking very worn out already. Had to replace the battery and recharge the A/C as well. We are a couple in our late 50's and always look after our vehicles. Having very mixed emotions about this vehicle and i doubt we'll keep it past the warranty.


Best Features

Very nice vehicle to drive, it rides nice and look great in and out.


Worst Features

Reliability and build quality, i expect much better quality in materials in a car of this price. Fuel economy has never been good, but we never did buy it for economy, we average 17-20 mpg highway.

2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (2.7L 4cyl 6A)


Review

It has been a year ( and 2 weeks) Since I got my 2010 Toyota Venza. It's Fun To Drive compared to my previous vehicle (2000 toyota 4runner). The sterring may be light but it is very agile. The ride is bumpy but I got over it. It's Great in the snow. I feel safe in it and it handles well in wet conditions. The color is fantastic. Very comfortable seats and good (front visibility) the Back up camera helps alot.
The bluetooth streaming audio is fabulous.


Best Features

Everything! Not alot of body roll around the corners. Cup holders with lights.


Worst Features

Better interior materials. Make them more scratch proof. And make the ride better but with good handling. Less road noise. I wish it had ambient lighting. Maybe the gas mileage could be improved.

2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (2.7L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Although stylish and roomy, the Venza's gas mileage, even for a 4 cylinder, is poor compared to what is advertised, especially since we are careful, conservative drivers.

It might be the overly sensitive accelerator pedal that results in excess gas consumption. The ride is not smooth either compared to the Ford Escape (we have had an Escape for 2 years).

The satellite radio does not perform as well as it does in the Ford models such as the Escape.

The dashboard mileage display screen is wired way too sensitive and cannot be adjusted.


Best Features

Style, roomy 2nd seat, cargo space.


Worst Features

Go back to putting regular tires on the Venza. The ride is too rough. Re-design the acceleration system since gas mileage is poor. Fix the electronics that control the dashboard mileage monitor.

2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We love our Venza . It works well for my wife and as well for me. Plenty of room in it. We have had it for 1 year. The only issue we have had it the gas milage. we are going by the computer gas meter and it says 17.3. When we first got it at the dealer it showed 16.1 and we ask the dealer if that was the real milage and they said that was just because of it sitting on alot. My wife is a real easy going driver and the computer gas meter always says 17 .3 to 17.5 in normal driving. We dont know if the computer is off or not. I had some friends that brought the exact car and engine from the same place and they get 23
normal driving and 26 on the highway . Disappointed in gas milage computer.
