Venza Problem aread

2011 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (2.7L 4cyl 6A)


There are three problem that we are experiencing with our 2011 Venza.
First, and most important, is the fact that small animals are getting under the hood and into the interior of the car (clove compartment mainly).
This is due to a design flaw that exposes openings on each side of the vehicle where water drains off the windshield that are not screened to prevent this from happening.
Second, the gas mileage is poor.
We have the base 4 cylinder engine and there is no way this vehicle is getting the posted mileage-absolutely no way.
Thirdly, there are serious problems with being able to see in the rear of the vehicle, making backing up in traffic a real challenge.

Best Features

The interior instruments are well arranged and easy to see. The overall styling of the vehicle is great. The vehicle rides well and looks good.

Worst Features

The design should be reconfigured to provide screen protection to prevent small animals from being able to enter the vehicle. THIS IS A REAL PROBLEM Toyota should check the mileage they post on these vehicle. Our Venza certainly does not come up to these figures. This vehicle should be equipped with a backup camera as standard equipment, as it is very difficult to see when backing up.
