Such an easy vehicle to fall in love with at first, but the longer i own it the more problems its having. This car is a rattlebox..plain and simple, after 40k miles i've just learned to accept it...Toyota can't fix this, last time they removed the dashboard and windshield to replace the dash support, i think i just hear more rattles now. It's on its third battery, i've had more jumpstarts owning this for 2yrs than in my 22yrs of driving. Had a problem with the A/C pump this WINTER! It siezed up apperently for no reason. Now i'm starting to feel the transmission starting to do some strange things....Oh my
Very good looking car in and out. Feels very competent on the road. Loads of features.
My cousin in law is a service manager at a Toyota Dealer (far from where i live) He said the later models are having much higher than average warranty claims, i hope Toyota fixes their problems. My first new car was a Celica coupe that was anvil tough. The Venza is a very well thought out vehicle and i was very happy for the first 30k miles or so, reminds me of what a domestic car was like 20yrs ago...Great ride at first, but falling apart as it ages.
