cheap plastic and leather
Cons: cheap plasticpoor fit of chrome trim around doors.cheap plastic -good looking car lots of room
Pros: Looks and comfort getting in & out of the Venza. Performance of the V6
Cons: Cost of the 20 inch tiresIt is no suprise the quality of the Venza. More than enough power from the V6. Ride is much better than other crossover/wagon in its class. Especially in rear seat. All controls are just the right positioning for the driver and passenger. Entering &Exiting the Venza is great ease. If you have back problems it is worth the cost if you are in the market for a new car. Well designed all around
Pros: Looks and performance
Cons: Have not found anything yetThis Bad Boy has it all. Power,Looks, Comfort ride for a Crossover, Suv, Wagon. Best value in price for what you get. Style that will be in for years.
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
I love my Venza
Pros: Abundant storage.
Cons: Brigestone TiresBy far the best car for the money I've ever owned.
Pros: Right now the seats. They're as comfortable as the Highlander's.
Cons: I really don't like how it handles on bumpy surfaces; and I wish it had real arm rests.
Advice: Go for it if you're stepping down from an SUV or up from a sedan. You can't beat it!There are some blind spots, so looking carefully before changing lanes is a must! And when the car hits a bump or a continuous patch of bad pavement, you feel it....not unlike a truck. That shouldn't be. The gas mileage is so-so. I had hoped it would be better than my 02 Highlander. Still, this is a lovely, and I mean lovely car for someone like me who packs four bikes, gear, people, and luggage to events. It does the job really, really well.
Cons: poor interior quality look
Advice: Look at a Honda Crosstour first!Cheap plastic look inside and hearing about Toyota's bad reliability issues as of late, I wish I would of just waited for the new Honda Crosstour!
