  1. 2013 venza power lift gate not working

    Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    Hi! This is my first post here. I bought a 2013 Venza XLE V6, and the power tailgate isn't working. I checked the switch on the driver's side "Power door" if I had pressed it, but the door doesn't go up or come down automatically when I push the button. I tried the disconnecting battery trick...
  2. 2009 Manual Hatchback won't open - stuck

    Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    Hi! I don't have a power liftgate on my 09 Venza. It does have a locking mechanism once the door is basically closed, but you have to manually lift and close. I came out to a dead battery yesterday and once I charged it back up, I found the latch is engaged but apparently the locking mechanism...

    Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    During my last oil change @ 172K miles on my 2009 AWD V6 Venza, the dealer mentioned that my front differential tailshaft seal needed replacement. I decided not to get it done because I wanted to verify for myself. I did check and the area was moist so the technician was correct. I’ve...

    Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    Mine is a 2009 V6 AWD Venza. This happened two times already over the past year; there was no beep and was quite fast (not much damping).

    Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    I bought a used 2015 Venza with V6 FWD three month ago. The car has only 40,000 kms and everything is good except for the bad gas mileage. It now reads 16.5L/100km(14.2mpg) which is far less than it claims to be - 12.4L/100km (19mpg). I bought it from a dealer and this car is a Certificate Pre...

    Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    Hi, I have a 2010 2.7L 4-cyl Venza FWD. I used to live in central FL and always thought that the stock headlights are underpowered and does not light the front at night very much. But it was a well-lit city so was not a problem. I moved to Seattle a week ago and now I really feel the car barely...
