Less appealing as the miles add up
By watervalley88 on
2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We have had ours over a year now and 34,000 m. The first 20,000 miles were great, but lately lots of problems both major and minor have croped up. This cuv has many rattles inside, one required the removal of the windshield, dash assembly, and centre console to fix! now we just notice the other ticks, and creeks inside. The rear struts have been replaced twice now and the sub assembly re-shimed. the steering seems to wander, Toyota said this is the E-assist and is not adjustable. The interior materials are wearing VERY quickly and are of low quality. Currently it is on day 16 at the shop waiting for a new transmission, Common on this model they say. this is the E-assist and is non adjstable
I love the styling, a great looking vehicle in and out, it feels solid and safe, all the luxury features are nice. Overall a very nice vehicle and easy to see why they are selling well, i just wish the nice would last more than 30k, i'm not the only one waiting in the Toyota service lounge that had higher expectations for their Venza, i have talked to many!
Bring back the old Toyota quality! Get rid of the Hill assist, stand behind the product not just call most problems "normal", higher quality materials inside.
