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


We bought our 09 Venza V6 FWD in snowy Ottawa and brought it back to Toronto. The dealers here wanted too much. The car performs flawlessly with excellent throttle response from the powerful six. Braking is good for the heft and space is generous. Build quality is standard Toyota ie: far beyond the domestics. The traction and stability control negate the need for AWD so money could be spent on accessories. Head and leg room are just adequate for me and my wife (both 6') and rear seat is huge for the kids. Overall we are very pleased with the Venza and I recommend it highly. Very well priced.

Best Features

Beautiful engine and smooth, precise tranny. Interior (stone) is high quality with good marks for materials. Great interior storage.

Worst Features

Offer JBL sound system and sunroofs in the base model, info screen is gimmicky
