The new has worn off :(.........Troubles at 30k
By gail76 on
2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
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.
Very nice vehicle to drive, it rides nice and look great in and out.
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.
