If you haven't driven one you don't know what you?re missing. Along with the styling, comfort and power it?s also a pure pleasure to drive. Is it perfect? No but there is nothing in this world that is, if you want near perfection then buy a Lexus. There are a few things I could gripe about but the positives way out way the cons which I consider only minor preferences. So, don?t listen to Mike Rowe, he?s only in it for the money; Ford ain?t got nothing on Toyota.

The Venza is a very stylish car inside and out. I traded my Toyota Sienna in for a 2012 Limited. I loved my Sienna but I really didn't need a vehicle that big. I have driven SUVs before and I don't really care for the bulkiness of SUVs. The Venza is a nice mix between my Van and traditional SUVs, easy to handle and spacious. On rough roads however, the rides can get a little rough, but I guess that the SUV portion of the Venza. I am very satisfied with the Venza.

makes us smile

Bought this used with 18,000 miles. Now has 24,000. Use it on very long road trips and for getting around. Didn't expect to get a big car but so happy we did. Fuel economy seems to be better than rated. Love the enormous cargo space when the seats are down. Much easier to reach kids and dog in the back seat than in a standard suv since the seats are set up more as a sedan. Great heat and a/c. 4cyl with AWD but gets right up a hill with no problem. The ride is so comfortable and smooth. Every time we go to get in our car, it makes us smile.

The 2012 Venza is great! I had it for 3 years & loved it!...only complaint: FWD was extremely dangerous to drive in the snow (and I have driven other FWD cars perfectly fine in the snow). Get AWD if you are not in the South! +PROS: There is a lot of storage in the front cabin space (a nice compartment underneath the cup holders & a separate storage spot), it is a smooth ride (drove across US a few times), good trunk space, push button works well/is convenient, Toyota is a very nice company to work with, etc.

Very reliable and VERY comfortable on road trips.

by from on February 19, 2017

This car's wide stance makes it very stable with good handling on all types of roads. The AWD is good in the snow. Averaging almost 22 mpg.

I just bought this Venza XLE with a V-6 one week ago. I still smile every time a see it or drive it. I find it very comfortable, quiet and peppy. I can't wait to try it on a road trip. I am still learning how to use all the electronic and computerized bells and whistles, but I am having fun doing it. I

The car just went over 100 miles and so far I have been satisfied with the ride and handling. The interior is comfortable however, I am less than satisfied with the radio. I have the Nav Configuration and changing CD's is not a one step process. Also, found buttons on radio, etc to be cheap looking and feeling. Still cannot figure out how to turn off the Nav Display screen when not required? The auto garage opener and bluetooth sync processes went very smoothly. It would have been nice if the glass on the rear hatch opened.
