We've purchased our 2011 Venza new and have had it now for three years and 35k miles.
We have had continual problems with the alarm going off for no reason.
It's been in the shop three times but Toyota can't fix it.
They did manage to silence the horn on the alarm but the lights still flash.
On and off the steering makes a whining or creaking sound.
Recently the sun visor on the driver's side broke--it wouldn't stay up or down, just mid-way where it obstructed the front view.
The mileage is not quite what Toyota claimed--we get about 22-24 on the highway.
For a vehicle that had a sticker price of $40k, it's definitely a disappointment.
The sound system and heated seats work well.
Fix alarm so it doesn't go off randomly.
Fix steering creaking.
Make sun visors so they don't break.
Put lines in rear view camera so you have a reference of where the car is.
