Meh — This was a tweener for me. I sold the Infiniti faster than I thought and founf this Venza. Although it was the XLE and had the bells and whistles they were very quiet. This car is simply uninspiring and BORING. It did nothing well. I sold this and took a $1500 loss in nine months and bought my first 2005 Corvette. NOTHING but a Vette would get the sour taste of the bland 4CYL Venza out of my driveway, The Vette made me forget about the $1500 loss. I drove the Vette for a season for $500 and sold it and bought an 08. I think the Venza sort of looked like the Infiniti I enjoyed but had NONE of what I liked about the EX35 Maybe the 6CYL Venza would have been a better choice but it was $3000 more USED and I did not like the car enough to go for it. The Corvette made me forget about that mistake

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Toyota Reliability
Electric Rear Tailgate
Thats about it

Cons: Slug with the 4 CYL
Poor MPG
Felt like driving a couch
uninspiring
