Rear seat room is excellent -- as good as our former '11 Ford Edge Limited. Technically it's a wagon; it looks sort of like a crossover vehicle, and shares running gear with some of Toyota's family utes. As required, the Venza has antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Without passing the calibration test, the occupant sensing system may not operate as designed. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota at 1-800-301-6859.

The least desirable angle of the Venza is from the front, where the somewhat gawky grille flashes a toothy look and hasn't grown any more comely. The steering is absolutely numb; no tactile feedback whatsoever. Remedy Southeast Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will test the sensitivity of the occupant detection sensors, and recalibrate them as necessary. In front as well as in back, there's plenty of head and leg room, and the low step in height as well as the somewhat low cargo floor all make access to infants or groceries quite easy. Remedy Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will seal the air conditioning condenser unit housing and install a protective cover on the airbag control module, free of charge.

And perhaps the best way to describe the way in which the Venza accelerates and handles is that it feels much like a somewhat taller, heavier Camry wagon. Of course you get faster acceleration with the V-6; it's smoother, too. However, the cargo area doesn't come with any organizers, so carving up the space will be up to you. You'd be challenged to pick up on the design differences between the 2012 and 2013 Venza models—perhaps even at the dealership. And while you can get third-row seating in both of those, the Venza only has two rows of albeit very comfortable seating. It's essentially a parts-bin creation, with body sections from the Camry and Highlander, but the Venza's knitted together particularly well, and its roofline and profile sitting lower to the eye than some taller utes. The Entune option enhances entertainment, communication and information choices by interfacing with compatible smartphones, adding features like Pandora internet radio.
The Venza also has some well-conceived storage bins and cubbies for smaller items, and its cup holders are deep and useful. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota at 1-800-301-6859. What's under the hood is essentially unchanged, despite the slight refresh that the Venza gets for 2013. Otherwise, this car has been one of the most reliable I have ever owned. The seat-heaters are great, they warm up quickly and provide lots of heat.
In the affected vehicles, the drain hose for the air conditioning condenser may become clogged causing water to accumulate at the bottom of the air conditioning condenser unit housing. There's a different, soft and carlike look inside; it's curvy but not over the top, with an unusual center stack dividing driver and front passenger, paired with big, clear gauges. Road noise is also an issue on coarser surfaces. Brightly backlit gauges and a 3. In my view, both are excellent.
The 2013 Toyota Venza is one of those category-defying vehicles that suits more drivers than might be aware of it. For 2013, the upper and lower grilles are redone, and the fog lights and taillights have been tweaked. The recall began on May 28, 2013. Both engines get the same available all-wheel drive system, configured for on-road tractability, and on V-6 models there's an available Towing Prep Package to tow up to 3,500 pounds. Since purchasing the car has 23+K miles currently it has averaged 23. But for everyone else--especially empty -nesters looking for comfort and competent performance, or smaller families--the Venza is a competent performer in nearly every way. We took delivery of the Venza in December 2012, and to date we have had regular scheduled servicing done, and, at 31000 km, the front brake rotors were machined, and the rear rotors were replaced, all under warranty.
Show full review Vehicle Overview A large five-seat hatchback, the Toyota Venza has been lightly restyled for 2013 and now offers more standard features and updated option packages. As we've noticed in real-world driving, the difference between the two engines does almost vanish if you live in hilly terrain; on mostly level ground or with mostly lighter loads, the four is definitely the green pick. What that means is impressive space for five adults and a good amount of cargo space—as well as a near-ideal seating height that makes getting in and out especially easy. What's under the hood is essentially unchanged. The recall began on February 5, 2014.
An inadvertent airbag deployment can increase the risk of injury or the possibility of a crash. The 2013 Toyota Venza is by no means a performance vehicle, so if that's what you're seeking, you should probably stop reading here and move on to something more exciting. Unlike Toyota's three-row 4Runner, or even the big Highlander, the Venza makes absolutely no claim to the off-road trail. The recall began on February 5, 2014. The recall began on March 21, 2013.
