Any new owners of the Venza V6 What are you really gettingt for mileage. Not the EPA real life fiqures Please
Don't want to sound like an A$$ or anything but you have to slow the car down if you want the good MPG. No vehicle is going to return good MPG going that fast.I've put approx. 700 miles on my Venza thus far. I would say about 70% of that has been highway driving between 70-80mph. The other 30% was city/suburbs driving in snowy conditions. With all that factored in I'm getting right around 20 mpg, which isn't too impressive compared to what they are advertising.
On an all highway trip, traveling an average of 75 mph I received around 22.5 mpg.
I would say definitely yes if you keep it under 70. My best tank with the awd 6 was 29, but that was with very favorable conditions. I usually do no better than 26, and I tend to be pretty light-footed.Good to see some real world numbers. My driving is mostly highway, so I think I might see 30mpg in an AWD 4cyl.
My "highway" driving is 55mph rural WV roads. I beat the old EPA estimate on my GTI from March through October of 32mpg and I do make the most of onramps when I'm driving on the interstate.I would say definitely yes if you keep it under 70.

Transmission. Compare Highlander vs Venza with the same 6. Venza is rated about 10% higher because it has a 6-spd vs Highlander's 5-spd.Wow that's quite amazing how some of you are getting 25 and up,
I get 24-25 mpg mixed driving with my light 04' toyota matrix, how does that work out? hm..
