lots and lots of problems
By georgejacobs on
Vehicle2011 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
ReviewWe've purchased our 2011 Venza new and have had it now for five and one half years and 61K miles
We had continual problems with the alarm going off for no reason. That was finally resolved after 6-7 repair visits--one overnight.
On and off the steering makes a whining or creaking sound.
Recently the sun visor on the driver's side broke--it wouldn't stay up or down, just mid-way where it obstructed the front view. Recently, the visor on the passenger's side broke--it wouldn't stay up or down, just hang midway blocking view.
The CD player no longer works. A CD is stuck in the unit. Toyota said they have to replace the whole audio system!
The paint on the front bumper is coming off.
The mileage is not quite what Toyota claimed--we get about 21-23 on the highway.
For a vehicle that had a sticker price of $40k, it's definitely a disappointment. It has lost lots of value--it's now only worth around $9K
The ride is average.
They don't make Venza anymore and I think that may have affected the resale value. Judging by various resale valuations, it has lost significant value.
On the plus side, maintenance is much cheaper than Honda.

- Repair frequency
- Purchase cost
