We have owned our Venza for 3 weeks now and still can find no faults. We drove several other crossovers including the Highlander, Buick Enclave, Chevy Equinox and Traverse, Ford Edge, and we kept coming back to the Venza. It has good ground clearance yet very easy to get into and out of. We like the wide wheel base, good ride, and overall width of the vehicle which makes it very roomy and comfortable. I really like sitting up higher. The back seat also sold us in comparison to other SUVs. We were owners of a 2007 Camry XLE. We will miss the gas mileage of the Camry, but we now have a 6 cyl and AWD so that's the way it is, but so worth it. We went with the Blizzard Pearl and love it.
We like the looks of the 20 in. tires. The Panoramic roof, backup camera, power hatch, xm radio are all great features. We also like the way the dash lights up and console is arranged.
