It's puzzling to me why Toyota doesn't offer the memory seats on the Highlander or the Venza. I can understand maybe the rains-sensing wipers, maybe, even though this is a must-have for me also. These were the only two things that kept me from buying a Venza, so I'm on my second Lexus RX. I had a 2007 RX350, and I'm currently driving a 2010 RX350.
I love the styling on the Venza, but I just didn't want to give up the memory seats or the rains-sensing wipers.

"..Pa..to get HIDs.."
And the answer is...
You got standard halogens, HIDs are not available on the Venza.
Maybe dealer aftermarket...?
You can buy Lexus RX memory seats at Ebay.

Power passenger seats (4-way with lumbar adjust) and HID lights (auto high beam) have been options for the Venza since the original introduction in 2009. These features are in Premium Package 1 or 2.
#88 of 94 Hey Bearlover - Venza seats question

I saw your thread where you had to trade in your Venza because of the seats.
I just bought a new 2010 Venza and my middle back is killing me. I have tried couple of seat cushions with no luck. The problem seems to be that the upper back is made without support (it sinks in starting at middle back)
Do you have any recommendations on how to resolve this with dealership without
selling the car?
#89 of 94 Performance Problem
Aug 02, 2011 (7:13 pm)
Just received a call from my wife that our 2010 Venza I4 quit running while she was on a 750 mile trip. About 675 miles into the trip in 108 degree tempertures all day running between 70 and 80 mph it simply choked up and lost power. Engine still running but would not go. Claims she still had gas but was getting low. Call nearest dealer and they sent a tow truck and gaver her a rental but will not know until the morning what the damage is. Luckly she left early this morning and it was still daylight when it died and only about 20 miles from dealer. I have her in a dependable new car because she does travel with the kids. Very surprised to hear the car had a problem has any one experienced overheating or computer issues with theirs. Just had a 10K service before she left.
#91 of 94 2010 Toyota Venza - What is the best way to do this?

I am about to purchase a used 2010 Toyota Venza;
it is on 13000 miles. now I am assuming it should be still under warranty as the guy got the vehicle on July 2010.
before I go thru with this - what should I do should I take it to a Toyota Dealer and have it checked?
I really would like your input dealing with this Venza.
The person is friend of a friend so I want to make sure I check this car as much as I can before getting it from him

Take it to your local Toyota dealer's service area and ask them what they would charge to perform a state safety inspection. Now that they know you want to pay for something explain to them that you are looking to but this car and would appreciate any feed back they could supply about any obviuos problems or issues.
I think you would find out what you need to know by doing this....

thank you road adventure...
The seller says it has what he called "Free Maintenance" or Free Service for this car until 7/2012
-Do you reckon if I took to do that, they would be to check the car that way also?
or specifically "State Service Inspection" is what I should aim for no matter what? (that way you find out more about the possible condition of the car?)
Thank you for your time
