Bought this car new. Have taken it to three Dealerships: one in Texas, one in Georgia and the other here in Florida. The Brake pedal travel is excessive. Almost hit the rear of the car in front of me on numerous occasions. Very scary situation and will cause me to sell this car. The dealerships all have told me it's a design issue with this car and can't be fixed or improved. Even my brother-in-law's Toyota minivan's brakes the much better than this thing. To bad is such a well thought utility sized vehicle.
I have 2013 Toyota Venza XLE-6 cylinder. My only Problem is under driving seat were auto adujustable back and forward there is a 2 screw there and my right side screw is keep getting loose and this my second time...Thanks!
The engine, AWD, break, etc lights are all on the first year. Toyota fixed it for three time to get it right, and replace two parts. This car is No good in cold winter and snow. If you drive out after the snow, you will feel the car is shaking heavy, like it's going to collapse; you can only drive to 50 mph at the time, if you drive over 50 mph the shaking is very bad. The second year, the check engine, and AWD lights are on and off, the day you bring to the dealer, the lights may off, but the warming lights are back on next day. Lucky this time they seen it, and repair for you. The Toyota is bad quality now.
I have had my 2013 Venza for a month now. It's a great car, but, two complaints. The Buick SUV I traded in rode much better and was much quieter. First complaint - the radio - my goodness, what a tinny sounding unit (not the JBL). Tried all the settings with no great improvement. My new Ford Escape has a much better radio. Other complaint - rough ride and noisier than my American cars. Sure seems like the much vaunted Toyota could do better than this. Will probably go back to American brands after this. If you are looking only at Toyota - look at a couple American brands - you might change your mind.
Like the electronic locking and starter button w/o a need to fumble with keys.
