I believe it's an industry term. My 2002 Ford Taurus had puddle lamps.

The 'puddle lamp/light' nomenclature is an industry term. The info I quoted regarding the 2013 Venza features was from the toyota pressroom website. I don't make things like that up and certainly wouldn't pass on erroneous information. That feature is not considered a luxury but is common on many mid-line vehicles. I had a 2005 Ford Freestyle Limited that had puddle lamps that illuminated when I pressed the unlock button on the remote.
Of course you could always look up puddle lamp/light on the internet to get a more official explanation.

I thought it was interesting that it was built into the mirror. The few I've seen were build into the doors.
All this time I thought they were called that to illuminate puddles by the doors.

Why are not the puddle/turn/marker lights ALL integrated into the BOTTOM of the side rear view mirrors such that turn signal can be seen from the front and/or back..?

The recommended oil is synethic for the 2012 Toyota Venza v6. Will using non synthetic oil void the warranty?
