Never owned a Toyota before I bought my first brand new Venza in 2011. Love the comfort and room. The only costs I incurred were for regular maintenance. I really wanted the back-up camera as I found it difficult to determine distance from the car behind me when I was parking. I didn't get it on my 2011 because I would have had to upgrade to a premium package that included sun/moon roof, leather seats, etc., which I really didn't want. Toyota had a good rebate, and considering I was looking at having to get new tires before winter, decided to upgrade to the 2015 which included the rear-view camera on the base model. If this car is a good as the 2011, I'll continue buying the Venza's.
