This is a very nice vehicle, but ours has been at the repair shop way too much> the list of problems range from minor to major, now at 36,000 miles the transmission failed, we had problems with the a/c pump unit, seat heaters, nav system, remote entry, and warped brake rotors. The fuel economy is dismal at 18 mpg with mostly highway driving. I do enjoy the features of this car, and it drives very well and feels safe. Seems I'm not alone as I have talked to several other venza owners that are having similar problems, we will not keep this one past the warranty!
Looks, Features, Safety, It drives nice.
Build quality and dependability are sub par. this was not our first Toyota but will be our last, I'm glad we held on to our 98 Rav4, comes in handy when the Venzas in the shop.
