Great Crossover...a pleasure to drive. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/16/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Venza LE I4 FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Love the styling. Roominess and new standard features are great. New 19 inch wheels are an improvement for 2013. Good value for the price. Handles well in snow and dry weather. Optimal ride height. Attitude black has a metallic hue...looks great in the sun light.
Cons: Nothing to dislike.
Overall review: Had hoped to do better with gas mileage, but vehicle performs within advertised range. Be prepared for a firm ride...corners well, handles like cars that have a much lower stance. Good looks, practical, performs well, and durable. Would recommend.

Exceeds Expectaions by VenzaLover on 05/12/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Venza LE V6 FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Many things I like about this vehicle. Love the sleekness of the body design. Due to the height of the vehicle and the size of the doors, it is easy to enter and exit. Handles very well, with good cornering, excelleration and stopping distance. Love the ease and versatility of using the rear cargo area. Insturmentation is very visible and easy to use. When friends ask me how I like my Venza, I always repy, "I love it!"
Cons: Not sure that I would qualify this is a con, but it does have a firm ride, which I like but many will not. Tends to be a fair amount of road noise, cabin could be a little more quiet. Quality of headliner and other coverings could be better quality,
Overall review: I believe this is a very good vehicle for someone who needs the versatility of an SUV without sacrificing the gas milage and handling of a larger vehicle. It is clearly a modern day station wagon. For me, it has exceeded my expectations. I will definitely purchase another when the time comes.

Don't listen to the haters by GM NO MORE on 04/14/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Venza XLE V6 AWD.
Pros: There is so much to like about the 2013 Venza. First, the updated front fascia and darkened taillights make all the difference and worth the wait. I love the tall, cavernous, and cleverly designed center console. Well lit and spacious it offers plenty of storage and a slick sliding cup holder to make access easier. The gas mileage is above average given the weight (approx. 4,000 lbs) and HP of the V6 engine. The invaluable power tailgate is also a welcome and useful feature, especially given the lack of availability of such a feature on the Honda Crosstour. It has quiet and very comfortable ride that is certainly tuned more for comfort than for fun.
Cons: The carpet and headliner materials are cheap. It's especially disappointing in a car with a window sticker just a few C-notes short of 40 large. The seats, though comfortable enough, have very little to no bolstering and short seat bottoms that offer little thigh support. Its tuned more for comfort than for fun. The placement of the HVAC controls look like an afterthought. The soft, squishy brake pedal is a common Toyota trait. I wish for a hard plastic cargo tray.
Overall review: The 2013 Venza is what it should have been from the beginning. It is a great looking, great riding wagon that flies in the face of the station wagons of yore. Stylish with aggressive 20 inch wheels, the 2013 Venza makes owning such a class of car fun, something my parents could have never said about a station wagon. And all this with the bullet-proof reliability and quality that comes standard with every Toyota

GLAD I GOT THIS by MITIZI03 FROM MARYLAND on 03/19/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota Venza Limited V6 AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I LUV this SUV. It drives like car, but you feel high enough that it feels like a SUV.
Cons: The only thing I dont like is for the Limited, there is no roof rack that comes with it. I wish they would have incorporated the roof rack with the awesome sun roof( looks like a transformer vehicle, LUV THIS FEATURE). That is all that I think is missing
Overall review: I had my 2013 since Aug. of 2012 and do not regret buying this vehicle. I looked at a lot of CrossOvers, the Venza stood out above the rest. Just think I was looking at a Cheverlot Equniox. Glad they wanted an outrages price for it or I will have been in something I think I would have regret later down the road. Especially if I would have looked at the Toyota Venza.The Venza is a versatile type of SUV. You can ride in luxury or casually in this CrossOver. The Venza fits every occasion. THANKS TOYOTA
