2009 Toyota Venza Problems

Factory Alarm May Sound for no Reason

The factory installed alarm system may sound for no apparent reason. A revised hood latch assembly is available which should correct this concern.

Massive Oil Leak and Loss of Oil Pressure

The VVT-i oil line is known to burst. This is a very large leak which covers the ground, engine, and undercarriage.

If the oil line ruptures while driving, the low engine oil message and engine oil pressure warnings will illuminate. Continued use after these warnings will result in complete engine failure due to oil starvation.

The line is known to be defective, and a revised part has been issued by Toyota, however, this revised part is known for the same issue.

To repair the issue, the line must be replaced, and the engine bay and undercarriage must be cleaned thoroughly.

I have a 2009 toyota venza. Someone hit it and I took it to a paint and body repair shop for repair. Paint was spilled on the front passenger seat. How can I get a fabric of the same color to get fixed. Thank you.
Love my Venza! Defrost on front windshield could do better job. Have had Venza for about a year now and wouldn't trade it for anything. Great storage in back and plenty of room in back set for grandkids.
