The Venza is by far my favorite car I have owned!

7 Jul

My Venza Limited has very nice interior features with front seats that cool as well as heat, and the stereo is outstanding.

5 Jul

The Venza features checked most boxes for me near luxury features, unique styling more Lexus than Toyota and yes Jaguar like rear, quality construction, quiet, and comfortable ride, latest safety features and infotainment tech. .

28 Apr

The Venza MPG was one of the reasons I purchased this vehicle.

7 Apr

The Venza is all about comfort, featuring a smooth drive train, great ride and a handsome interior.

7 Dec

The Venza an Impressive vehicle and the driving experience gets better as she broken in.

5 Jul

Yes its shy on cargo space, lacks adequate storage cubbies for things like loose change and sunglasses, cargo area is on the small side and lacks tie downs and other features such as grocery bag hooks, so I gave it a 1 point demerit for comfort.

24 Nov

Switches are too small and close together so accidental disengagement of cruise happens often.

I keep my Venza in sport mode, so the acceration is very good.

The Venza has less cargo space.

8 Aug

On highways, I noticed very little wind noise,

24 Jul

It make very very little sound or vibration when the gas motor starts/stops.

5 Jul

A little more road noise than I would;d like.

5 Jul

I noticed that when I play the radio a little too loud, the bass makes the dashboard buzz.

24 Jun

I am very disappointing with the 2021 Venza Driving Feel, I bought my Venza in December 17, 2020 and from the very beginning I heard the noise produced by the hybrid system (dealer technician said),

22 Jun

I have had my car insulated to cut down on the road noise, thinking that was the issue.

12 Apr

Other than that the interior started squeaking after less than 3 months and 3k miles.

10 Apr

I’m a bit disappointed in the tire/road noise, especially on not perfectly smooth pavement.

4 Apr

And that weird angel noise when you reverse.

18 Aug

though this car is a 4 cylinder, it does not feel underpowered at all and it zips around town with no issues.

8 Aug

The engine sounds at bit loud at times.

24 Jul

I like how the engine shuts off coasting, braking, or stopped at a light.

5 Jul

no clunk when the engine turns off at a light like my wife's E350.

28 May

Perhaps the biggest compliment other than a droning engine when pushed hard is that you don't even realize you're driving a hybrid most of the time.

4 Mar

The start/stop of the engine does not bother me at all,

16 Feb

Not powerful or refined engine under hard acceleration as my 2014 Toyota Highlander XLE.

19 Jan

I have the 2021 Venza XLE I cannot get anymore than 41 liters of gas in it, and I run it down to where it says 20 KL left, anyone else have this problem, Toyota is doing nothing

12 Jan

Major minus is the engine noise.

11 Jan

but has engine noise as my Prius does.

12 Apr

Poor POI, tricky routing compared to smartphone, and sometimes hazardous paths: it led me to an UNBUILT ramp in Corpus Christi on 65mph which could be fatal if I was driving at nighttime and trusted the navigation.

28 Feb

The voice activated navigation is problematic at times.

14 Feb

The touch screen for the map does not appear on the entire 12” screen like in world like for it to.

19 Oct

Also, nav & upgraded audio not worth the upcharges.

2 Oct

It’s NOT as quiet as a Lexus Cons: #Worst navigation system I’ve ever seen.

8 Aug

In the owner's manual, it says that the Venza is not designed for off-roading (off-road only if unavoidable) and that snow chains cannot be mounted (mine has the bigger tires).

25 Jun

It's not bothered by extreme cross winds, snow, ice, slush, heavy rain - if you have the right tires.

10 Apr

It may be the Bridgestone eco tires, which I’ll eventually switch out to a better riding tire.

I've tried other phones, so my phone is not the issue.

I’ve owned the car less than a month and I’ve got to take it back to the dealership because it’s onstar doesn’t work as well as the phone linking.

12 Apr

By the way, the only place you can put your phone without obstructing the view or screen is the vent left to the steering wheel, which is not that comfortable.

Nice interior more space than the Venza.

8 Feb

I believe shoppers looking for a medium sized SUV with Camry levels of quietness and ride comfort and seat comfort should look at the Toyota Venza which has great user reviews.

15 Aug

Also, to many rattle noises.

22 Jul

I have not experienced any steering or road noise issues mentioned in other reviews.

18 Jul

Tire noise is terribly loud (while there isn't much wind noise, the sound of the tires rolling is overpowering).

11 Jul

The only downside is that the vehicle sounds at all times like multiple pieces are loose on the interior… there are rattles in the cabin from every direction that cannot seem to be found or fixed.

7 Jul

Cons: Quirky 8 Speed transmission has trouble finding gear at slow speeds, minor occasional lurch in first gear from stop, noisy engine permeates cabin in city driving, RAV4 not quite as nice as 2018 and under years.

25 Jun

There is quite a bit of road noise

15 May

We hear whistling noises at highway speeds, the engine is much noisier then previous generation and the transmission is also not as enjoyable.

Mine is an XLE, had it for only a month and battery has died twice.

10 Jul

Cons: Fuel tank issue is annoying.

11 Mar

The fuel tank only fills 3/4 of the way.

22 Feb

I can only get about 9 to 10 gallons max into the gas tank when empty and Toyota won't do anything about it.

12 Jan

I have owned this car for a year and weeks after buying it learned that I could not fill the 14.5 gallon tank as there is a design failure with the gas tank sensor.

27 Nov

The gas tank issues and dying battery issues are really serious lapses on the part of Toyota.

25 Sep

The bad: Don't Toyota's PR campaign fool you the gas tank design is seriously flawed and has not been fixed in the 18 months this vehicle has been on the market.

7 Sep

Probably, the only difference between the 2019 and 2020 defective fuel tank models is that the fuel level indicator is capable of showing a full tank

6 Sep

I am giving this a one star because I think it is underhanded and possibly illegal to have a known defect (gas tank/performance) and sell these cars without fixing it or disclosing it.

5 Sep

Only issue is the gas tank.

4 Sep

However, they gas tank only fills up 10 gallons which is much less than the manufacture states it should fill resulting in less total mileage.

22 Aug

The 2021's engine shutdown feature when you stop sounded like the engine had bad motor mounts, if it was my car I'd be taking it to the dealer.

7 Jul

Cons: Quirky 8 Speed transmission has trouble finding gear at slow speeds, minor occasional lurch in first gear from stop, noisy engine permeates cabin in city driving, RAV4 not quite as nice as 2018 and under years.

25 Jun

The engine is very loud, a common Toyota thing, so it feels pretty rugged when driving which can be good and bad.

2 Jun

extremely uncomfortable interior, loud, terribly sounding engine, no headroom, hard, small seat cushions.

15 May

22 Apr

Engine noise is awful.

20 Apr

Engine sounds like a wheat thrasher about to explode under hard acceleration.

3 Apr

That’s amazing for it being a gasoline engine and not a hybrid, which we tend to stay away from for now until that technology is a little more perfected.

13 Feb

Engine somewhat underpowered from stop,

30 Dec

On a positive note I drove another 120 miles before the dashboard indicated the engine has stopped.

12 Jan

I have owned this car for a year and weeks after buying it learned that I could not fill the 14.5 gallon tank as there is a design failure with the gas tank sensor.

17 Nov

Guess Toyota is going down hill - new Rav4 and the auto headlights stopped working and needed to be replaced then the drivers door lock failed and needed to be replaced.

19 Oct

I have bought used cars, cars that were just junk and I have bought new cars and most of them have let me down and failed prematurely.

23 Sep

Had the vehicle for 2 weeks now, drove mostly in city and gave rest for 1 day, the car won’t start, it says smart key malfunction, I changed the key fob battery and still the same issue, felt crazy it happened on the brand new car.

28 Jul

but has no fix or plans to recall, sounds like they don’t have any intention of coming up with a fix for it.

7 Jul

but it was showing a “key malfunction” error and telling me to press the break and turn on the car.

4 Jun

You need to recall these vehicles and fix problems.

20 Jan

While driving on the highway in a light snow storm all of the sensors failed due to being covered in snow- the exact safety features we liked because of being safer in Minnesota weather.

It’s a solid vehicle, feels much more substantial and drives much smoother than the Venza.

4 Aug

but you really have to step on it to make noise.

22 May

but but great things to say about my Highlander except the engine is a bit noisy when you hit the gas but there are trade off's in any situation if you want to save gas.

9 May

but the insulation from road noise is just not there.

3 May

However, the generated noise while in reverse on only the electric engine is loud & annoying.

26 Apr

The people complaining about engine noise and lower than expected milage must be talking about high speed interstate travel which I rarely ever encounter.

2 Apr

The 4 cylinder engine makes more noise than the 6 cylinder, at first it was annoying

21 Mar

My only complaint is there is a bit of a whistling noise at high speeds, maybe from the driver's side mirror, or the roof rails.

14 Mar

Toyota has placed a speaker behind the front grill of the car and emits a whining noise when the car is placed in reverse(louder) or moving less 18MPH.

6 Mar

I find the cabin very quiet at highway speed my biggest complaint is the loud engine noise while accelerating, and apple car play only working with a wire why not Bluetooth Toyota.

2 Mar

Several pro reviews comment on the noisy, unrefined 4 cylinder engine when the vehicle is pushed hard.

28 Feb

The engine does sound louder than the gas model, and that might turn some buyers off.

26 Feb

The lesson I learned from this was that it's hard to get good gas mileage for short trips because the gas engine will run during initial startup until the engine and hybrid battery warm up.

5 Jan

Only drawback is different noises from engine / drivetrain,

14 Nov

Great vehicle, awesome responsiveness, and overall features. My only issue is the gas tank (inconsistent refueling) and the placement of interior lights (or maybe brightness is an issue)

8 Oct

I almost passed this up due to the reported problems with the gas tank and lack of being able to fill it up, so far I have not had that issue and after 2500 miles I think I would have experienced it by now.

The random noises and poor seat comfort are just plain aggravating and long term irritants.

The only thing I do not like are the noises at any time

6 Dec

All the lights, radio, defroster everything is turned off before we shut the car off,

15 Nov

The satellite radio is slow to respond,

27 Oct

My biggest complain about the 2020 is the vehicle is noisy on the highway to the point the radio doesn't disguise it well.

8 Oct

No longer having to sit up and stretch to touch the radio screen.

26 May

Engine: So loud that I really need to volume up the radio so I don't get stress with the noise.

2 Feb

The radio sound is hard to hear when you are on a highway.

16 Jan

and there is no satellite radio option.

5 Dec

Loved having a tuning knob on the radio which our Honda CRV lacks.

18 Jul

The only thing I would change is the radio system to difficult to use.

8 Jul

There are some things to improve like a full-digital instrument cluster, a tachometer (hybrid), oil temp and voltage readings, hood-opening hydraulic struts, illuminated windows and mirror

19 Jan

buttons for defrost, fan speed, ect are small and hard to read.

(AC amplifier bad due to driver seat heater).

4 Mar

The loss in efficiency I have seen is when I have to accelerate hard at traffic lights or when the car is used for very short drives and the engine has to heat up lowering mileage (especially in freezing temperature).

30 Dec

There are no side mirror defrosters and the dash defrost that has a vent aimed toward the side window is useless for defrosting the driver side window - it blows toward it

14 Aug

So far the only disappointments are the inside air vents could be bigger for better air flow, and they need to fix their act up re color choices and options which vary dramatically from model to model.

After many days and nights of stress dealing with Toyota (Corporate and Westport dealership) the problem was diagnosed as needing a new transmission.

Road noise is alright could be a bit more insulated and wind noise as well.

The warning lights and beepers are distracting and at times go off when other vehicles are not close or within the collision zone, especially in parking lots.

18 Dec

They could get away with the side sensor lane changing lights in mirrors and the rear end collision avoidance and it would be fine.

(5) The feature that shuts down the engine while at a stop light is very agitating and should be a option to either always on or always off.

27 Feb

The infotainment system interface is pretty mediocre and the center armrest is not comfortable which is something that annoys me every time I drive it.

but if you have a heavy foot you have to turn on the Power mode in the center dash screen every drive at touch of a button to make throttle a hint more responsive to squeeze a bit of fun out of drive.

There is a YouTube channel (The Car Care Nut) where the channel host is a Toyota Master Mechanic and advises to do your oil drain at 5K instead of 10k.

6 Sep

Furthermore, the Highlander has a power mode which is easy to turn on every time you start the engine on the middle screen which gives you more power and downshifts quicker from stop signs and the accelerator becomes light as heck.

29 Nov

before the transmission totally failed. Twice.

8 Sep

but whats the use when the heart of the vehicle is a failure.

25 Jul

but there are some reported instances of failure of the electrically operated rear hatch on other Highlander models.

The seats in the Venza are wide and not bolstered much so for me it was like sitting in an over-sized recliner.

It’s going to have to be a great driving car for me to part with my current Venza though.

I've owned my 2010 Venza for quite a while, and am always impressed with it's utility and performance from its 6-cylinder engine.

I bought this Venza new in 2009 and it has been amazingly reliable.

22 Feb

although it exhibited some road noise at high speed and the engine sounded a bit thrashy under hard acceleration.

3 Aug

The road noise is horrible with the low profile tires.

21 Feb

No squeaking, rattling, etc.

23 Oct

Does not squeak or rattle.

5 Sep

Gas mileage is merely average, and creaking noises from the glass sunroof panels give me pause.

22 Jul

but interior fails with cheap plastic and squeaking on center console.

29 Mar

general complaints, loud, man is this car loud, tire noise was no joke at highway speeds.

17 Dec

but there was pronounced wind noise from the puny teardrop shaped mirrors.

my Venza handles well and is very stylish.It has never given me any trouble .The tires that came with it are michelins and lasted for 57,000 miles!

18 Jan

The only thing I do not like is the excessive road noise.

The Venza's only drawbacks are the layout of the front cup holders and the road noise.

18 Jun

The 2.7 engin is abit inadequate and noisy at times.

Window wind noise is not good and Toyotas window bending fix is not the great.

The GPS is hard to program and expensive to update us your smart phone instead.

1 Oct

Problems: 1My Multifunction Display intermittently stops working.

30 Jul

The HD radio is awful, constantly goes in and out, the satellite radio constantly loses reception and the GPS system leaves a lot to be desired.

3 Feb

The nav system is a bit difficult to use and should come with lifetime free updates.

21 Dec

The ride is so quiet that when I had the radio off once, I only heard the A/C when I was going 40 mph.

10 Nov

sys and was extremely disappointed to find that Toyota decided to apparently use a new radio this year that is not connected to the rear entertainment system.

11 Oct

but did not realize that this could be a transmission issue.

2 Oct

Gas pedal is sensitive and transmission doesn't shift into low by it's self going up a steep driveway.

30 Mar

Also, the Murano has a CVT trans, and am not sure about the durability of it with significant towing.

16 Mar

Makes an excessively loud humming noise in cold weather coming from the transmission.

12 Aug

The sound system is better than ever and Toyota has higher quality systems in general.

30 Jul

I am so disappointed with this system, I am starting to regret paying top dollar for a limited model.

3 Feb

Audio for movies is available through the included wireless headphones or you have to use an aftermarket solution like a bluetooth connection (not provided) or run a manual cable from one of the headphone jacks of the ent.

11 Oct

Will not buy Toyota again.

16 Sep

The pump that cools the engine needs a replacement, which will cost $3,000 to repair!!

4 Jul

Getting brakes done also would cost $800+ if I recall correctly.

18 Nov

the noise level inside at highway speeds is bad at best.for a car in this price range Toyota needs to get their game on.

10 Mar

After 6 months of owning the Highlander we are selling it to buy a Honda Pilot.

7 Mar

I'll sell it as soon as I pay off the car.

16 Mar

Not what I was expecting in a vehicle at the price.

3 Feb

However Toyota should include at this price level blind spot sensing mirrors, back up sensors and memory seats.

10 Nov

Considering Toyota is still charging a premium price for the Rear Entertainment System, and the dealers are not even aware that the sound is not avbl thru the speakers, I wanted to warn potential buyers.

16 Sep

A few days ago, with just under 50k miles on it, a rattle started coming from the engine.

18 Nov

the ride quality,interior noise is terrible.

8 Jun

After driven 6kmiles, in May of 2014, R/R struts got busted, leaking and noise.

16 Mar

Noise disappears after vehicle has warmed up.

9 Jun

Took my new Highlander (with 2300 miles on it) on vacation to Hilton Head Island - after arrival, started hearing a roaring noise from left rear tire area - stopped by Toyota dealership and they discovered the wheel bearing needed to be replaced.

23 Sep

Most people complain about the spongy brakes or weak A/C or vague electric steering or the sunroof leaking or making noises, yet this car has none of these issues even at 45K miles.

8 Sep

A bit too much road noise as well just driving on typical road surfaces.

5 Aug

Get yourself some CCF and MLV and some CLD to put on the rattling metal.

7 Sep

However recently took it on a long road trip and found the road noise very annoying, So loud I had to sometimes turn up the radio and had difficulty having a conversation.

14 Aug

You will here metal scratch noise sometimes, I thought it's the break, the mechanic checked the car, it's not from the break, it mystery noise.

26 Mar

The cabin noise is excessive.

23 Sep

The leather on the steering wheel and shifter is something I’ve never felt before I’m thinking road kill.

4 Sep

The electric steering feels numb with no feedback or resistance.

11 Jan

The electric steering take a bit to get used to (feels a little loose at first) and this car also rides pretty rough compared to most American-made cars.

15 Sep

There is little feel of the road through the steering wheel.

23 Sep

The problem is the computer only stores 4 sensors.

4 Sep

Update: We put 15,000 miles on this car and the only thing we've had to do is replace an oxygen sensor and the batteries in the remote.

15 Mar

The back up camera clouds and blurs easily as it's in the path of runoff from the tailgate and there are no sensors.

14 Jun

I dont like the shift location, because is in the middle of the center panel and interfere with radio and A/C control.

23 Sep

The shifter location was not the deal breaker I thought it would be and the tiptronic feature does help to motivate things.

24 Jul

Interior design is poor - shifter is right in the way of reaching for other controls, have to take eyes off the road to change climate control.
