This vehicle is grossly overpriced compared to others in the Toyota product line as well as the competition...Of course, that is just an opinion based on my own research. I have been comparing it to the RAV4, CRV, Forrester and the upcoming 2010 equinox. What I don't understand is why toyota, nissan, and honda do not offer all wheel drive versions of their sedans or (ok, I'm dreaming now) an awd wagon version of the camry, accord or altima. I realize the Venza is basicly a wagon camry but as you state the price differential is not justified.

I'll give these guys a call ........ the dealers in silicon valley just won't move off of MSRP. Best offer I have gotten is $500 off ........... I was much more motivated a few weeks ago before putting another $1000 into an 88 corolla. I was going to wait for year end but if there willing to make deal , I am still interested.

The wall street journal reviewer agrees with you. His article in this past saturday's paper is clearly one of the least favorable reviews I have ever read.

The 75k or 100k miles warranty is that the same as bumper to bumper 36k miles or a reduced items after the 36k miles? Is the warranty from Toyota or 3rd party?
Also how much would be the normal maint. cost for 55k miles ($875), is that good for any dealerships, and for 5k miles oil changes or other interval?

That Accord wagon is sweet looking, is wagons can be sweet looking. Anyway, I think the Accord wagon will kick Toyota right in the Venza.

Only 1394 Vevzas sold in January ( http://jalopnik.com/5145511/toyota-january-sales-drop-344) yet Texas dealers want MSRP and load them with expensive options before They hit the lot! No thanks. I will wait until next Fall and see what Honda and others offer.
#106 of 596 Re-cap of Good Deals
Feb 11, 2009 (7:26 am)
I went through all of the posts to this discussion board and wrote down the dealerships that members have noted for really good deals. I plan to buy a Venza in the late spring when my Highlander lease runs out and knowing there are deallers willing to come off MSRP by $3K or greater has made me feel a lot better. So, let me share this list with you. I'm in the Carolinas but I won't hesitate to drive to say, MD, for a good deal. Thanks everyone for your help.
Antioch Toyota, Antioch, CA
Beaman Toyota, Nashville, TN
Car Max, Kenosha, WI and Laurel, MD
FitzMall, Gaithersburg, MD and Chambersburg, PA
Ramsey NJ (not sure of dealership)
Rhinelander Toyota, Rhinelander, WI
Toyota of Morristown, Morristown, NJ
Rt 22 Toyota, Hillside, NJ
Vallejo, CA (not sure of dealership)

My OK dealer quoted me sticker Saturday. I about laughed but just said thanks we are still looking. I immediately went on line and got easy quotes of $1000 to 1500 off from other dealers. Invoice will be the norm once the newness goes away.
