2011 Toyota Venza
2011 Toyota Venza
The Toyota Venza was a brand new addition to the Toyota family in 2009. The Versa has successfully blended the lines between a hatchback, station wagon and crossover vehicle. The marketing department from Toyota has described this vehicle as a something having the styling and comfort of car but the usefulness of a SUV. This is definitely not a standard sports utility vehicle or a car. It really is something in the middle. This smaller vehicle can tow as much as 3,500 pounds so it is definitely a useful sports utility vehicle. On the inside there is a lot of rolling curves and current styling that make it a very cool looking car if nothing else.

The engine options for the Venza are what make it seem stronger than many give it credit for. The standard 2.7 liter inline 4 cylinder engine give it a total output of 182 horsepower and the optional 3.5 liter v-6 cranks out 268 horsepower which make the Venza a very capable pulling machine. The 2011 Venza starts a little over $26,000 and gets 27 mpg on the highway.
2011 Toyota Venza V 6 AWD Front Left View
On a rational level, the Toyota Venza is a solid choice for a five-seat crossover. It has lots of interior room and is reasonably stylish. The only downside, then, is that the driving experience is utterly forgettable. The throttle and transmission are programmed to be incredibly soft and lethargic, which makes the Venza feel slow and hesitant. As is the case with cars like the Toyota Camry, the Venza seems designed for the type of person who simply wants reliable and comfortable transportation from one place to another. That's fine, but someone who actually enjoys driving cars will find the Venza terrifically dull.

For 2012, the Toyota Venza will fall in line with the rest of Toyota’s lineup by employing a model strategy that includes LE, XLE, and Limited trims. At its launch, the uniquely styled Venza was offered in one variant with a long list of a la carte options.

Summary
Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is recalling certain models interspersed through model years 2009 through 2013 as follows: model year 2009-2012 Tacoma, 4Runner, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Prius, and RAV4; model year 2009-2010 Avalon, FJ Cruiser, and Highlander Hybrid; model year 2010-2013 model year Corolla, Sienna and Tundra; model year 2009-2013 Highlander and Venza; model year 2012 Prius V; and model year 2010-2012 Sequoia. During modification by SET to include accessories such as leather seat covers, seat heaters or headrest DVD systems, these vehicles may not have had the passenger seat occupant sensing system calibration tested. Without passing the calibration test, the occupant sensing system may not operate as designed.
Consequences
If the front passenger seat occupant sensing system is out of calibration, the front passenger airbags may not deploy or they may deploy inappropriately for the passenger's size and position. This could increase the risk of personal injury during the event of a vehicle crash necessitating airbag deployment.
Remedy
Southeast Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will test the sensitivity of the occupant detection sensors, and recalibrate them as necessary. The recall began on March 21, 2013. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota at 1-800-301-6859.

Summary
Southeast Toyota is recalling certain model year 2008 and 2010-2013 Toyota Tundra, 2010-2012 Rav4, 2012 Toyota Sequoia, 2010-2011 Toyota Corolla, 2010-2011 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2010-2013 Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid, 2010-2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser, 2011 Toyota Land Cruiser, 2010-2013 Toyota Venza, 2010-2011 Toyota 4Runner, 2010-2013 Toyota Tacoma, 2011-2012 Toyota Sienna, 2012 Toyota Prius, 2013 Scion FR-S, 2011 Scion XD, 2011 Scion XB, and 2012 Scion TC vehicles.

Remedy
Southeast Toyota will notify owners and provide a corrected label with instructions concerning its installation. A small group of the affected vehicles will need additonal remedies which are still being developed. The recall began on May 28, 2013. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota at 1-800-301-6859.
