2011 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Bought 2011 Venza w/49 miles on it new. From the start complained of knocking noise from suspension when 1st starting out after car sits for awhile. Toyota says it's common in all Venzas. Also slow shifting in am when car cold. Takes three blocks to shift to 3rd gear. Toyota also said is common. Cannot see myself driving this car long. Must trade soon. Toyota dealership Royal Palm Toyota in Royal Palm Beach Fl. gave me my worst experience buying a new car. Very disappointed in vehicle.

Best Features

Bluetooth & front & rear sun roofs are a plus. Reclining rear seats makes it nice for passengers.

Worst Features

Toyota needs to improve the shifting problem when cold. Also need to resolve that knocking noise from under car. Also test drove 2012, same noise. I think it's a problem with the suspension, maybe due to the oversize tires, or weight distribution .
