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.
