"6 months and taken (4) 600 mile trips, Powerful V6, great MPG's for a 4K lbs. car. Roomy, the new Elec. steering is effortless. not looking forward to replacing the pricy 20inch tires. But over all, a great value. only -"Negatives are the short cuts that Toyota did in interior quality. Just read the Venza Forums.
Other cars I compared:
Mazda CX7 & CX9= Both drove better more driver car contact, but no incentives at the time. Maybe next time , Honda CrssTour: UGLY Design
Acura MDX: Pricy, over priced
Infinidi FX35: Pricy too, but drove excellent. another 8K needed"
"We took the first one off the dealer floor. Now at 9k with no complaints. I drive a mix of highway and city for work and this vehicle delivers me safely.
There is enough style for professional use and storage for weekend trips to the hardware."
Pros: "drives as if race worthy but family safety"
Cons: "con is my back surgeries need zero gravity seating"
