I've had several issues with this vehicle in the last year and half. A total of 14 seperate dealership visits with problems in areas such as- Battery, rattles and build quality issues, transmissiom, heated seats, stability control, and remote keyless system. Toyota service is awesome some days, and terrible the next. I'm not the only Venza owner with a problem car as i've met several more just at my dealership. What happened Toyota? MY 00' 4 runner feels better built at 200,000+ miles.
Stylish, smooth and able powertrain (when the trans is shifting not slipping) surefooted feel. Great in the snow with winter tires.
Rattles from seats and dash. Poor quality leather. Thirsty Thirsty Thirsty!! Fuel economy is awful. Please Toyota, bring back the Quality! This is too expensive of a vehicle to feel so run down after just 1.5 years.
