The Venza has been everything i expect so far. MPG 23.5 around town. Expect better of open road. More than enough power for my driving style. Family of 4 loves the room, comfort, sunroof and being able to play Ipod. Did not want the key-less system at first. But, have actually come to like the system.
Roominess, interior and exterior design. sunroof in back makes the cars so much more open and bright feeling.
Worry about tire cost down the road. Not sure a slightly smaller tire would not have worked.
