Super loaded Venza 6cyl AWD is awesome, but the AC sucks

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


I love the way it looks, inside and out. I love the functionality of it. I REALLY love the power of the V6 with AWD, lots of get up and go!! The JBL Synthesis Stereo System is awesome!

The salesman said that it was geared to older consumers that do not like AC blowing in their face. WHAT? $38000 for a weak AC?

Best Features

Power, Looks, Comfort (except for the AC which is very lacking), Awesome stereo, backup camera, gas mileage, 20s

But, you know what, I would rather be able to turn it down, than NOT BE ABLE TO TURN IT UP!!!!!!! WTF??!!!! Seriously??!!! There is a little meter that represents the "Fan Speed" on the dashboard readout. As you pr
