    Anyone here own a Toyota Venza?

    Thinking of getting a Venza and wondered if anyone had one and what they think of it.

    Not I. I drive a 4WD Silverado 2012, crew cab. I have driven a Silverado for the past 12 years, I don't like headlights blinding me at night.

    My friend just got a new one and she loves it. Frankly, I think it is uncomfortable to ride in and wasn't that impressed with it. Another friend just got a Kia Sorrento and I love it! Be sure to do your research before you buy, drive it if possible and ask other people who drive them what they think. (I sometimes go up to people in parking lots when I see them getting out of a car I'm interested in and ask them how they like their car. Strangers will often be very honest and tell you things that a friend wouldn't.)

    Yes I do and I love it!!!!! Actually my DH also has one and he loves it too! I have owned alot of cars but Toyota's are the only one that I have had NO problems with. I had a GM years ago and I swear it was in the shop every 3-4 months because of break down. I've had several Toyota vehicles and I will never drive anything else but a Toyota from now on. I love the ride, I love the feel of the drive, it's comfortable, get lots of compliments on it.
    I'm definately very happy with my Vensa and would recommend it to anyone!!!! I LOVE MY TOYOTA!!!!!!

    I don't know about the Vensa, but we have a Toyota Rav4 and we just love it. Gets great fuel mileage around 28-30, comfortable to drive, perfect size. Only complaint we have is that the fuel tank isn't big enough at only a tad over 13 gallons, so we are always filling it up. We live at least 20 miles from any store in any direction so we have put on the miles since we got her in 2009. Not a single problem with it. Toyota's seem to last a lifetime. So check the size of fuel tank.

    If you are interested in a Rav 4, Jan 2 is the start of production of the brand new Rav 4. The new model has a complete body change and some people say it looks similar to the Venza. It is definately worth looking at!!!!! It will also be cheaper than the Venza! It is worth a look at.

    we have the Rava4 and find it is easier for me to get in and out. The height is just right. Love the ride, seats and foot room.

    I had a 2009 Venza and traded it in for a 2012 Camry back in August. I LOVE LOVE the looks of the Venza, but I hated the drive. Mine was a V6 and had those low profile wheels and tires. It was very very rough and uncomfortable especially compared to my previous Avalon. My husband has a Frontier truck and it has a smoother ride than the Venza. I still love the looks of the Venza - it was actually the first car I ever got excited about owning. I like my Camry and how it drives, but I loved the Venza, except for the ride. If comfort is important to you, then don't get a Venza.

    Hopefully the newer models have changed. I am a Toyota fan.

    In June we bought a Honda CR-V because our old car ,93 Dodge Intrepid was on its last legs. A?C unit was toast Front Passenger window will not roll down and return with out someone holding it with a hand on both sides to guide it so it stayed in the rack, dash lights out and so on. We love our Honda. Gets great gas mileage. We even drove it to VA. in July and got between 35-40 mpg.
