Toyota Venza Accessories

Has anyone purchased any custom-fit rubber mats for Venza ? I've done some search on the web. Seems like there are Husky Liner and Weathertech brands ? Has anyone had some experience to share about these products ? How are they compared to the original Toyota winter mats for Venza ?

I am thinking how nice it will be if I can get a set of custom-fit mats for my new Venza so that I can keep the dirts and snow captured and cleaned up more easily.

Any good online stores or retails in Vancouver area of Canada to recommend ?


  • I bought Weathertech for my Highlander in '05 and it has been a good product. After I purchase my new Venza I will also send off for Weathertech mats. I think some Toyota dealers carry them but you can probably go online and get them sent to you cheaper. It would be good if the floor mats were black to match the Venza carpet but the back tray mat was the color of the interior. Probably too much to ask??

    Has anyone put some vinyl protection product like ArmorAll or Black Magic on the Venza dash and vinyl sides to protect them from UV and cracking ?

    As for the leather package, does anyone know which part is genuine leather and which part is not ? Any good leather product to protect it from UV, to clean and nourish. Is Armoall leather care gel good enough ?

    I've used 303 Aerospace Protectant on my previous vehicles and will continue to use it on my Venza. It's not greasy and gives surfaces a clean -- but not artificially shiny -- appearance.
  • It was protecting the top only but not the EDGE of the bumper compare to other bumper protectors.

    The bumper will still get scratch if you are not careful.
  • Does anyone know what the part number is and where to buy the special wrench that is required to change the oil filter on the 2009 Venza?

    Hello -
    We just ordered our Venza and when it gets here we want to take our dog along...

    Anyone know where I can get a pet barrier - the tubular steel kind??
    I found ONE on the weathertech site, anyone have experiance with it - Does it FIT OK in the Venza???

    Thanks -

    I'm in the market for one also. Check out this site
    They sell everything for animals There out of Rhinelander, Wi
    I believe Toyota has one

    I did find a cheaper version of a pet barrier that has an angled lower bar support so that there can be some recline to the back seats at "Discount Ramps .com" -
    I still have not seen any barriers listed by

    Also, I am seeing some Southeast Toyota cars are coming with Mud Flaps. Besides E-Bay, anyone seen a supplier for these - much less a picture of a Venza wearing them??

  • I have had my new Venza for about 2 weeks now and I love it. I am looking to install a tow hitch on back for the main purpose of attaching a bike rack but I also want to be able to hook up a trailor to transport misc items. I did buy a car with the tow prep package on it just in case I ever wanted to tow something heavy. Has anyone installed a hitch to their car yet? What do I look for in a hitch? Any ideas out there?

    Go to You will find everything that you need. I purchased a class three hitch six weeks ago and it fit just right.

    1. Is it possible...or even feasible to retrofit the car with Toyota factory backup camera and display specific for the Venza ordered through the parts department? As an alternate to the LCD display, use the RAV4's combination rearview mirror/backup camera display?

    2. What about side mouldings? Car looks bland without some kind of accent. Does the parts department list such items as a factory item?

    3. Any recommended car seat covers that looks as close in appearance to the cloth seats?

    4. Recommended external GPS Navigator, i.e., Garmin, TomTom, Magellan, etc., with features comparable or better to the indash Toyota Navigator? Which brand is better in terms of quality, features, ease of use?

    Garmin seems to be the leader among the portable devices available in the US. Check the Navigation GPS Systems discussion for recommendations.

    I too am a new owner looking at adding a hitch. The dealer said Toyota doesn't make one yet (strange since they sell a "tow package)...but has anyone seen this type posted on (draw tight). Reason I'm asking...I wont use it alot, and if it's poorly concealed then I may opt for a custom locally that doesn't distract from the looks of the car. Also, I haven't looked yet..but does the tow package include a wiring harness under back of bumper somewhere?

    Thanks...BTW this Venza is sweet!

    My hitch from is the same hitch that comes from the Southeast region in Jacksonville, FL . It is as concealed as it can be and no worse than any other class III hitch on any other SUV/crossover. There is no wiring harness with the tow package. A harness comes with the hitch from etrailer.

    Does anyone know where I can buy a real nice chrome or Golden Umber rear car tag frame for my Venza.? I dont want one made out of aluminum or plastic.

    Can anyone recommend quality cloth front and rear seat covers specifically designed for the Venza? Are leather seat covers worth it? Those ivory-colored cloth seats are gonna get dirty real quick.

    Ditto for dash cover.

    wouldn't a seat cover interfere with the side air bags? i believe they're installed in the seat bolsters.
  • deepsouthdeepsouth Posts: 30
    Thanks That is exactly what I was looking for but could not find. What do you have on your Venza and what color??
    Mine is Golden Umber Mica-Package 2 with heated seats,push button start,back up camera, V6FWD,MSRP $38111- paid 33500before tax Nav- Panoramic Roof- Tow Prep - Black Splashgaurds- Carpet mats and trunk mat- Toyogaurd Plus-

    Are you sure the side air bags are installed in the seat bolsters? I thought I saw side air bag labels located on the inside of the door frame pillar near the windshield or near the seat belt harness.

    If seat covers can't be used, how do you protect or keep clean those ivory-colored seats....besides not sitting on them. ;)
