There has been a recall on model year 2012 and 2013 Toyota Venza. NHTSA campaign id number: 13V442000. I believe 2011 should be in this recall as well. Our vehicle is not draining condensation properly. There is a bad odor coming out of your air conditioner and I believe the smell is from the buildup of moisture in and around the air conditioner. As this is also mentioned in NHTSA recall number above.

2011 Toyota Venza. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle defective stereo/radio equipment and electrical wiring. The consumer stated as she was driving and listening to the radio, a loud screeching sound emanated from the right rear door speaker. She turned off the radio, but the screeching sound continued. Shortly thereafter, a burning smell filled the entire vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for an inspection, which revealed the amplifier had shorted out internally and caused the speaker to melt.
