Cons: "Gas mileage less than I expected in city driving"

"Good midsized vehicle with great versatility. Has good (but not excellent) back seat leg room, is easy to get in an d out, can be converted to a cargo carrier in seconds by folding down the back seats. Tolerates slippery surfaces and tire chains. Only gets fair gas mileage (20c, 28h)."
"There is very little to fault in the Venza. The only complaint I have is that the turning radius is too wide with the 20-inch wheels. Perhaps a hub spacer would have helped. I've owned a 2009 and 2013 Venza and would have had a third had Toyota not ceased production. This summer I put on 11,000 miles in five weeks between Florida and Washington (state), in mountains and desert, with nary a hiccup. Acceleration, cruise, responsiveness, comfort and mileage were all superb. I had the car serviced three times in widespread locations and the dealerships were consistently excellent. Cancelling Venza production was a mistake."
"Sure - it's a station wagon. It is also a very reliable, safe, AWD family hauler. The car has been very reliable over 3 years. Gas mileage is not as advertised (21 MPH overall).
Safe - check.
Reliable - check
Stylish - not so much
Comfortable - check"
