Venza almost a crossover
By jerrylee1 on


2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I have had this vehicle for 10k now, and
it is pretty comfortable
... it is, as expected, of Toyota quality...AWD functions very well.... but it fails on several styling fronts.
MPG is as advertised around 22 mixed.

This could have been a more satisfying automobile with better acoustics (more quiet) and a more engaging dash and information center.
This is a car designed by a van/truck guy... should have assigned it to a car guy with free reign to get creative.
BTW.. Toyota has possibly the worst navigation systems... very limited coverage, expensive and awkward to update...use your phone.
