Toyota Venza Questions

is heard when no one is in passenger seat

Should be the easiest job! Not, the wire housing goes into the car which means you have to take a lot of plastic off inside the car, which is impossible! Now I have half the job done and I have to take it in anyway. Anyone have advice?

I bought this 2009 Venza (CPO) used, but didn't do a rough road test. It's a bumpy stiff ride on poorly maintained Roads (common in NJ) I've read other forums reagrding changing the tires,downsizing the wheels, and /or changing from factory struts / shocks. (these all make perfect sen...

Toyota Venza Recalls

As part of normal operation of the air conditioning system, condensation will accumulate in the condenser housing behind the dashboard. A drain is incorporated so that excess water can drain out. This drain hose can become plugged, the accumulated water can leak onto the airbag control module. This can result in an electrical short in the control module. If this were to occur the airbags could become disabled or deploy unexpectedly. Improper airbag operation increases the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. The power steering assist could also become inoperable resulting in increased steering effort. Dealers will seal the air conditioning condenser housing and install a protective cover on the airbag control module to correct this concern.

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.

During assembly, the electrical contacts of the stop lamp switch may have been contaminated with silicone grease, causing increased electrical resistance in the switch. This could result in: Illumination of warning lamps; a no start condition; the shift lever may not shift from the Park position; and/or inoperative brake lights. Inoperative brake lights would fail to warn other drivers the vehicle is slowing or stopping, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.

Toyota Venza Reviews

Well designed vehicle. Very comfortable on the highway. Seats supportive. Good 4 cyl. power, 42mpg (Cdn.). Little wind noise, or road noise. Good interior space. Would buy another.

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.

I've owned a Venza since September 2009 & have not experienced any problems. The Road Noise is too loud, so more insulation ?? may be needed. Leather seats are still in great condition & very comfortable. Electric seats still functioning well. JBL sound system is very good. The storage area is very ample. The back seats fold down, allowing for very long items. when We have taken trips, we f...
