World's Best Fun Sport Wagon — This is the first Toyota I have ever owned. The quality is excellent so far (still on first 1,000 miles). I'm not a big fan of the larger than normal Toyota Logo Built into the grille.....but otherwise, this is a sleek looking car. 20" wheels and Goodyear Eagle 50 series tires (S rated) come standard with the V6. The look of the car is deceiving until you are standing next to it, at which time you notice that the car and especially the wheels feel huge. Interior is well thought out and logical. Good quality feel. Nice interior lines. I like to think of this as a "Poor Man's Lexus RX350". Same engine and many of the same features, a few inches shorter in height, longer in length and wheel-base, weighing a few hundred pounds less, for around $10K less. Plenty of power with great handling (for its previously mentioned huge size). Electric assist steering takes some getting used to and lacks a lot of "feel", especially at slow speeds. The up-side of the electric assist steering is parking.....which easily done with little force to the steering wheel. Speaking of parking, the back-up camera is needed. It would have been nice to have passenger mirror dip (for parallel parking). The ride is pretty quiet, depending on the roughness of the road. Seems like some more insulation in the cargo floor is called for and that is where the road noise is coming from. As for the reported "jittery" ride reported by many reviews, I think when I wear out the Goodyear Eagles, I'll get rid of some of the jitters (which only occur on bumpy roads to begin with). I suspect that the jitters are being driven by the very stiff springs required to keep this large vehicle from wallowing like a pig. The stiff springs combined with the "hard" tires seem to create a little high frequency bouncing (Goodyear "S" Speed rated tires seem extra hard). Very fun to drive. Don't be fooled by its practicality, this is a lot of sportiness for the money. It was really hard to find one of these without all the bells and whistles. I preferred simpler options, Heated Leather only (No Nav, No Gigantic Sunroof etc.). In short, this car is unusual but good. 25,000 Mile Update: I still like everything about this car. No regrets. No serious issues. In fact, nothing has gone wrong. There are a few rattles under certain circumstances, but this was true since I bought the car. The car has held up and performed well over numerous trips. All wheel drive and ABS are a blessing on wet or snowy roads. Here are my only complaints (all pretty minor): No memory seat(s). No automatic folding side view mirrors. Poor visibility when backing up. Rear view camera helps, but I without the navigation package I only got the small camera display, with serious glare issues in the sun. "A"-Pillars obstruct view at times.

Excellent Car For Active People — Outstanding vehicle in every instance. I honestly cannot pick anything I did not like about the Venza. The Venza was a wonderful work, luxury, performance and outdoor adventure vehicle. The styling inside and out very beautiful. Completely satisfied Venza owner.

Stylish Crossover With Power — The V6 Venza has excellent acceleration and handles like a car. It is a safe crossover that is very stylish. The seats feel very comfortable and has lots of head and leg room. It also has good MPG and low maintenance costs.

Comfortable Car — I like the appearance of the car from mostly all angles, with the worst being the rear view. The build quality on the outside is very good, but on the inside the dashboard looks cheap with the different shades, textured materials, and gaps. The seats are very comfortable and there is a lot of rear leg room. Cargo room is pretty good. The gas mileage is over 20 MPG around town which is good for the size of the car. I have over 25,000 miles on it and never had anything wrong with the vehicle. The free maintenance was a selling point but it probably didn't cost the company much since only oil changes were needed. The car's acceleration is very good but the wheels spin easily from start. Braking is also very good and the car stops in a straight line. I feel very safe in the car. It's very comfortable but not overly fun to drive.

Great interior layout, comfortable ride, ample back seat space

Could Be A Great Car With Better Fuel Economy — Car has nice lines and good acceleration, but lacks the fuel economy that is expected with a 4 cylinder. The large 19" tires that come on the base model look good but can be expensive to replace and could be holding the car back in what could be better fuel economy.
