Hi dbbksl, How is the fuel economy of your Venza in the city and hwy? Just doing some research if I should buy a 4 cylinder or the V6. ThanksReport it
I bought a 2012 Venza last July. I am happy at first but now I feel I had regrets about it. My concern is the engine speed relative to acceleration. Whenever I am cruising say 60 to 65 miles on the freeway and I want to accelerate to merge or change lane, the moment I press the accelerator, the engine rpm will spike to about 3500 and at times to 4500 as if I am on neutral. I don't feel the car accelerating for a brief moment I have to release the pedal and press it again. I complained about this to West Covina Toyota during the 10000 miles check-up but they seem to brush it aside, saying the engine speed and transmission is computer controlled. I feel my 2004 Toyota Sienna has a better acceleration that the Venza. Also, I never experience a car that would rev up to 4500 while driving at 60 - 65 miles on the freeway. I am concerned about the engine overspeeding, not the car.Report it
