Great car -- one issue
Cons: Potentially dangerous lack of visibilityTerrific ride. The design's major and for me fatal flaw is the lack of sight lines. Without the rear view and side view cameras, you'd only know about someone or a car to your side or behind you when you hear the crunching sound.
It is a good vehicle under 30000. Another brand to
Cons: Its fun to drive.Suzuki is another japanese brand which you can consider. I like its warrenty which is 7years/100000miles. Although the interior looks little bit cheap it is fair and it have a good performance reaches 0-60mph in 8 sec. Overoll this is a good vehicle. And i like the seating position.
Pros: Limited premium package
Cons: availabilityBeen looking for 3 months, seriously the last 3 weeks. Have driven both awd & fwd. Know what we want, but can't seem to find it. Have dealer looking. Hope to find one soon or may look at another company.
Pros: Love the way it drives and handles
Cons: Acceleration and rear view obstruction when backingCar looks very nice; however, the black color looks like an Orca Whale. Best to go with a lighter color (white or silver). Accelertion is poor due to the 2.73 rear end. Bet gas mileage would be just as good with a 3.23 and the acceleration would be a class leader.
Cons: front seats are too close to dashGood economy, dependable, looks nice, low upkeep, runs good.
Not so sure
Pros: Seat comfort
Cons: Nav/phone is hard to figure out (might just be me); 3rd row seat and not much cargo room when up.Bought brand new 2009 MDX - needed luxury sport utility to seat 7 with fold down rear seat; didn't want V-8; didn't want non-local dealership, so that cancelled out Benz, BMW, Audi and Lexus. Not so sure if it's worth all the hype and the pricetag. Fan runs super loud; handling is fabulous - totally; comfort is awesome with plenty of leg room - and I'm tall; 3rd row seating is terrible and feels like a clostrophobic's nightmare; lots of little tics and noises when car warms up, when air is on, fan runs off and on constantly; just not sure if it's all that.
Pros: Lot's of storage.
Cons: Bridgestone TiresI just love my Venza...I'm saddened though by the safety problems Toyota's currently having. Margaret
