Nice car with poor reliability
By rancher8 on
2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
It looks great, very nice to drive, i love all the features, but i will never buy another Toyota. Ours is getting a new transmission installed at the time i write this review- and its backordered, our service guy said its a common failure on awd Venzas. Our A/C quit needing a new compressor unit, right seat heater quit, front brake rotors warped, the nav system often freezes up, and after 32,000 miles this car rattles and is starting to feel old. It's a nice vehicle but i seriously doubt it will hold up well, my old 98 Rav4 felt better than this with 200,000 mi. While loitering around the service department waiting i can say I'm not the only one disappointed with my new Toyota!
It looks very classy, by far one of the better looking crossovers, it drives nice, i like the interior and all the features.
Build quality. Reliability. Some interior parts feel cheap.Lousy fuel economy, i never knew how far the domestic competition has come until i drove a friends Buick Enclave (he's very happy with it after 2 years)I miss the way Toyota used to build their vehicles- with QUALITY that LASTED!
