Took delivery of our brand new Venza Sept 2010. We now have 56,000 miles on this vehicle. The vehicle has required a multitude of repairs both major and minor, it rides poorly, gets lousy fuel mileage, and as generally not a vehicle of very high quality.
Had to have the transmission replaced this past winter because it was slipping, I could go on and on describing visits to the dealer for all kinds of electrical issues such as check engine lights, vsc codes, nav/radio unit malfunctions, and sunroof troubles. The ride is very bouncy and not noticeable during the first leg of ownership. We average just 16.5 mpg mostly highway driving, we have a 2010 Full size GM yukon V8 that gets 19mpg!
Finished in White Diamond paint this is a very attractive vehicle. Interior has lots of features and looks great. Good smooth power from the V6.
It feels 8 years old already. Lots of rattles, just not happy with this vehicle at all. one more year of payments and it gone, i cant imagine fixing this thing out of warranty.
