I have spent the last 8 months going through Edmunds.com, Motor Trend, Car and Driver, and the Consumers Reports magazines reading about this vehicle and it is every bit as much as these companies said it was. The ride, the handling, the Toyota name, I have a 2008 Highlander, and traded in a 2005 Highlander and the Venza is a much better vehicle than those two. I compared the Venza to the Ford Edge, the Nissan Murano, and the Lexus RX350 and the Venza came out on top in every category. The Surround Sound system sounds great no matter what you play.
Surround sound system, the power of the 6 cylinder engine, the ride and handling of the vehicle. The space on the inside, my wife and I are 6 foot and have plenty of room. The instrument panel is very clear and easy to read and the automatic high beam headlights are easy to operate.
I have had this vehicle for 5 days, so I really don't have any improvements as of yet.
