Pros Almost everything about this care is great.
Big comfortable seats, great interior and exterior styling, solid 4 and v6 engines
Better styling, space and performance that competitors like Cadillac or Lexus crossovers at a fraction of the cost.
Cons Acceleration could be a bit smoother. I have the AWD version and plan on taking frequent trips to the foothills ...would love if Toyota included a protective materials at lower portion of vehicle to help prevent rock scratches.
Summary There is little to dislike about this car. I would hope that in any new revision
Pros Exterior styling and interior comfort
Cons No USB interface and 20" tires are bloody expensive to replace
Summary I stepped down from a larger SUV (Pathfinder) and don't regret it for a second. This car has one of the most comfortable, spacious and practical interiors I have ever seen. It's got plenty of power(V6) for it's size and rides like a much more expensive vehicle. Mind you, it doesn't handle like an Audi but it also costs about 25K less than something comparable.
Pros Styling is great, interior is greater still. Roomy, comfy, responsive. V6 AWD is the way to go!
Cons Wheres my Rain sensing wipers?
Summary Go see it, sit in it, take it for a ride, then you'll never want anything else...CNET Editors are smoking crack!

Pros The car has lots of style, it rides well, the sound system is great, the color, the initerior, everything about it (I'm not so sure about what's under the hood, my husband gave that the thumbs up). Love all the hidden compartments! Very functional!
Cons The only bad thing is I'm getting way too much attention in this car and I guess how bad that is depends on who you're asking ;)
Summary Bottom line is I love it! I had a Ford Explorer prior to purchasing my Venza and I was worried about going to a smaller car but I am very comforable. This car has a luxury feel while but is still very functional. The hidden compartments allow you to have tons of things hooked up at once and have no wires hanging!! I'm a bit of a gaget freak so I loved that! i can have my iPod (which has it's own space), GPS and radar detector all going at once!
Not to mention the ride! It is extremely smooth. Love the 20" rims that came on it. I have no complains. It's a great car! My husband and I both agreed on this one!

Summary I bought my Venza from a "warehouse club" buying program. I love the car inside and out, It drives amazing, handles great, rides quiet, v6 gives me 27 mpg highway 22 city, dash board is laid out well - easy to use. Recommend pana- moon-roof , security package, and convenience package....
