NHTSA’s 5-Star Safety Ratings help consumers compare vehicle safety when searching for a car. More stars mean safer cars.
Combines Driver and Passenger star ratings into a single frontal rating. The frontal barrier test simulates a head-on collision between two similar vehicles, each moving at 35 mph.
Combines Side Barrier and Side Pole Star Ratings into a single side rating.
Combines Side Barrier and Side Pole Star Ratings into a single side rating.
The Rollover Resistance test measures the risk of rollover in a single-vehicle, loss-of-control scenario.
Rollover Risk: 14.2%
The pre-collision system automatically turned off and said something along the lines of “not being detected” while I was driving in snow. I can be available upon request. If I have the pre-collision system on, & it automatically shuts off, I believe this could cause a potential wreck or some other safety hazard. The problem has not been evaluated by any service dealer. The vehicle has not been inspected by anyone for this issue. The pre-collision light in the dash came on that the function was turned off while I was driving in the snow. This issue actually first appeared in 2018, but at the time I didn’t think it was an issue. Then I moved to a place where it doesn’t snow, & saw it happened again in heavy rain weather.
I have had this car since Oct of 2017, I bought it from Kerry Toyota of Florence ky, I have spent so much money on this car, and I'm at 59k miles. I have heard a whining noise for some time now, I took it to the dealership and they said there was nothing wrong but recently it got worse so I took it to an autobody shop that I trust and they said it was the transmission. So I took it to Kerry again it was still under warranty just by 1000 Miles. Turns out it was my transmission. I've never been rough on my vehicles obviously I drove it to 59K I should not have to get a whole new transmission. So I did some digging turns out MULTIPLE people have had the same issue with their 2018 CHR's. Also when I went to pick it up from the dealership it was dead so they jumped it for me. Then when I got to where I was going and then got back in to start my car it wouldn't start again. So come to find out my battery is shot. Now On average, a car battery lasts from 5 to 7 years. I understand that that can differ tremendously but I saw where multiple people have been through a lot of batteries with their CHR's so I was upset and angry about my car so I traded it in. Now they gave me $15,000 at first. They said I needed new tires, New battery, I had a scratch on my back bumper and apparently my front bumper. Now upon me looking at my car I do have a scratch in the back bumper but the front isn't touched. So they gave me $15,500 I feel like I should have got more for my car due to the problems I have gone through. I had $12 left on my car so I did get positive equity but the quality of the car isn't my problem and I don't feel I should suffer the depreciation because of the issues it has had because that's on the manufacturers, not I. They should have already done a Recall on the Transmissions. Here is the BIG reason why. IF my car was covered, if I drove 1000 more miles I would have had to pay $8,600 for them to fix my transmission!

At about 58,000 miles a humming noise started from the front end. Made appointment with dealer and made it in about 62,000 miles. They said it was the wheel bearing hubs, exchanged them and problem continued. The dealership then said it was an issue with the transmission, but because the car now was over 60k miles it was not covered under warranty. At ToyotaCHRForum.com there are many other consumers reporting the same issue. Toyota refused to pay for the transmission in full. I ended up paying 50% of parts and labor for a total of $4,048.21. This car is 3 years old and unacceptable to have a transmission fail at this point. I place a case with Toyota and they are not accepting any issues with the CHR transmissions. I believe toyota should take responsability for the obvious issues with these transmissions. I am looking for reimbursement of what you have been covered by them 100%.
I heard a whining noise coming from front end of my car. I took it to the services department at 42,000 miles while under powertrain warranty and they said they thought it was the air conditioner pump but said they couldn't fix something that wasn't tore up and advised me to call or come back it the noise worsened. I did complain again that the noise was worse at 65,000 miles not under warranty and they correctly diagnosed the problem and said I needed an new transmission but they are not willing to fix it since it is now out of warranty.
Electrical system malfunction. Abnormal voltage power steering low. These messages turned on after we felt the steering wheel become really heavy and making it hard to make the freeway entrance. The Toyota Ch-R shut down right before we merged onto the freeway. We were left on the blind spot of the freeway entrance in the night, so it left us quite vulnerable to an accident and possible death. The vehicle will be taken to Toyota dealership, since it still falls under the 60 month warranty.
A file its atach
No july 20 I had a car accident, I was driving on my road, and suddenly another car crashed into my car, moving 2 lanes in the opposite direction, the impact was so strong that the vehicle that hit me was completely destroyed. All the bags in the car that hit me exploted, but none of the bags in my car exploted.
One day the climate control cluster was inoperable. The lights didn't come on with the vehicle and was unable to change temperature/AC or turn on the blower motor. Took vehicle into Larry H. Miller Toyota Dealership and they told me it was the ECM (wasn't communicating properly with the LAN system) and that the heated seats were affected as well. This is as 2018 with only 30k miles on it and says it's not covered under warranty and I will have to pay $1,500 out of pocket. This was a Manufacturer defect, why is the consumer having to pay for a manufacturers defect?
The contact owns a 2018 Toyota C-HR. The contact stated while driving at an undisclosed speed, there was an abnormal winding noise detected. The vehicle was taken to the local dealer and the contact was informed that the transmission needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure however, no further assistance was provided. The failure mileage was approximately 77,000. The vin was not available.
Needs transmission replaced along with torque converter. These components of the vehicle have failed with only 82,000 miles on the car and a complaint about noise was initially filed with Toyota around 50,000 miles but they will not honor the warranty. The components are available for inspection. My safety and the safety of others was put at risk because if I would not have taken it to an auto mechanic (outside of Toyota) this issue would have gone undiagnosed because Toyota did not recognize the issue initially. If the car failed while on the road it could have easily of caused an accident especially since most of my driving is on the highway. Yes the problem has been confirmed by the dealer and an independent service center. No No warnings were coming from the car just a loud humming noise initially appeared around 50K miles. Took it Toyota and they "diagnosed" the tires were the issue. If they would have correctly have diagnosed the issue they would have found the issue with the transmission. The noise did not go away after the tires were replaced however I did not report it again to Toyota because they did not seem concerned about the issue when it was reported.
Transmission failed on a well maintained CHR at 80k miles. The noise started as a low hum and got louder and louder. When we brought it in for a diagnostic test, the dealer told us the transmission went bad and the repair was 9k. The car is out of their warranty so they refuse to replace the transmission. The transmission is faulty and it’s failure had nothing to do with the car’s maintenance. Forums online have shown this as a known problem. Toyota has not recalled this dangerous transmission. The failure started when we were in warranty, we just didn’t know it was the transmission. We replaced breaks and put a new set of tires thinking this could be the issue. Toyota is failing to make good on their promise for safe and reliable cars. It’s basically a lemon and sadly, we are not alone in the disappointment of Toyota not recalling this car for bad transmissions.
Transmission failure at 71195 miles.
The contact owns a 2018 Toyota C-HR. The contact stated while driving at various speeds, there was an abnormal humming sound while accelerating and decelerating. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the failure was undetermined. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the transmission needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 63,000.
Heard a humming noise from the engine. Went online to the Toyota forums to see if any similar stories were there and to my surprise there were more than several indicating the same noise I was hearing all of them saying it was the torque converter and transmission. I was shocked to see these stories and hoped that mine was not the same. Unfortunately after rotating the tires hoping that maybe that was the cause of the noise it did not fix the problem and the noise remained, so I took it to the local Toyota in Killeen Texas. After several hours they called me back only to tell me exactly as I had read in the nightmare stories on the Forum that my brand new transmission was bad and there were no aftermarket parts because the car was so new so the parts would have to be all new Toyota parts and estimates of 8 to $10,000. After reading more in the forums I found that some dealers we're covering the cost even though out of warranty. Unfortunately mine was not the same. They said there was nothing they could do to help me and wished me luck with corporate. I called the and a man tried to help me but after several days of him asking people above him to cover the cost they said there was nothing they could do for me. So I am left with a brand new garbage transmission that can give out while I'm driving down the road. The fact that the company knows about this and is not paying for the repairs is mind-blowing. This can cause serious accidents and if it does the company should be held responsible because they know of this issue and have not correctly dealt with it. They have just been lucky that no one has been killed because of it. Please help me get them to fix this known problem before it takes someone's life.in the upload that is just a handful of ppl having this issue.
CAR BEGAN MAKING WHIRRING NOISE FROM FRONT END OF CAR AT FIRST INTERMITTENTLY AND THEN EVENTUALLY AT AL TIMES ESPECIALLY WHEN ACCELERATING. TOOK CAR TO DEALERSHIP TO TAKE A LOOK AT NOISE HAVE NOW BEEN TOLD WHOLE TRANSMISSION HAS TO BE REPLACED. CAR IS ONLY THREE YEARS OLD, BOUGHT NEW SAME DRIVER, MAINTENANCE EVERY 5K MILES. CAR MILEAGE IS AROUND 65000 AND WAITING ON MANUFACTURER FOR POSSIBLE NEXT STEPS.
WHEN DRIVING THERE AFTER USING THE CRUISE CONTROL THERE IS A WARNING ABOUT THE EPB MALFUNCTION. IT APPEARS CERTAIN CH-R MODELS HAVE BEEN RECALLED FOR THIS, BUT MY VIN DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE ONE RECALLED.
I DID NOT NOTICE ANY ISSUES OR IRREGULARITIES WHILE DRIVING, BUT WHEN I STARTED MY CAR TO LEAVE ONE MORNING, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS ON. I IMMEDIATELY DROPPED IT OFF AT MY LOCAL TOYOTA DEALERSHIP. THE PROBLEM ENDED UP BEING A FAULTY FUEL PUMP VALVE WHICH NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, ALONG WITH A COMPLETE FUEL SYSTEM CLEANOUT. THIS IS AN EXPENSIVE REPAIR, WHICH UPON RESEARCHING THE ISSUE, I HAVE FOUND THAT THOUSANDS OF OTHER TOYOTA MODELS HAVE BEEN RECALLED FOR. I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THAT THEY LOOK INTO ADDING THE CH-R TO THAT LIST BECAUSE APPARENTLY THERE IS A PROBLEM AS MY CAR IS LESS THAN 3 YEARS OLD.
THE CVT TRANSMISSION IS BAD. THIS APPEARS TO BE A WIDE ISSUE WITH A LOT OF C-HR OWNERS AND TOYOTA IS REFUSING TO TAKE OWNERSHIP TO RECALL THE VEHICLE. THERE IS A LARGE HUMMING AS YOU ACCELERATE THAT INCREASES OVER TIME.
EPB MALFUNCTION LIGHT WARNING COMES ON WHILE DRIVING. HAS COME ON A TOTAL OF 15 TIMES SINCE PURCHASING IN 9/19. DEALERSHIP HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO DETERMINE ISSUE. FRONT CAMERA HAS GONE OUT 7 TIMES WHILE DRIVING SINCE PURCHASE, DEALER STATES IT'S FROM THE HEAT. FRONT BUMPER MOLDING IS LOOSE DUE TO WARPED CLIPS USED BY TOYOTA PER THE DEALER
4 WEEKS AFTER PURCHASING A 2018 TOYOTA C-HR I RECEIVE AN ALERT WHILE IN MOTION ON A CITY STREET TO TAKE THE VEHICLE TO MY DEALERSHIP FOR A EBP MALFUCTION. TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND A WEEK AFTER THAT THE ALERT CAME OUT AGAIN. TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP WHO STATES THAT THEY COULDNT FIND THE ISSUE AND TO TAKE A VIDEO WHEN IT HAPPENS AGAIN.
I PURCHASED THIS CAR ON JUNE 26TH 2018, THE CAR HAD BEEN WORKING JUST ABOUT FINE UNTIL APRIL 24TH 2020. I WAS RUNNING ERRANDS AND MY CAR HAD NOT SHOWN ANY SIGNS OR WARNINGS ABOUT NEEDING SERVICE OR THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG. I TURNED ON MY CAR, I BACKED UP A LITTLE AND THE CAMERA MALFUNCTIONED AND I HEARD A WEIRD SOUND, THEN THE CAR TURNED OFF BY ITSELF AND THEN IT WOULDN'T TURN ON. I CALLED AAA AND THEY TRIED TO CHARGE THE BATTERY, IT WOULDN'T CHARGE AT ALL. MY CAR WAS TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP, THEY DEEMED THE BATTERY TO BE DEAD AND IT WAS REPLACED. ON SEPTEMBER 19TH 2020, THE NEW BATTERY WAS DEAD AGAIN, FROM BEING PARKED, IT WOULDN'T TURN ON, CALLED AAA AND THIS TIME THEY WERE ABLE TO CHARGE THE BATTERY AND THE CAR TURNED ON. I GOT ON MY WAY BACK HOME, AFTER 5 MINUTES OF DRIVING, THE STEREO, A/C, DASHBOARD AND HEADLIGHTS STARTED MALFUNCTIONING. DASHBOARD HAD SOME SERVICE LIGHTS ON AND THE MESSAGE "ABNORMAL VOLTAGE. STEERING POWER LOW." THE STEREO WOULD RESTART NONSTOP OVER AND OVER AND IT WOULDN'T LET ME TURN IT OFF. EACH TIME THERE WAS A RESTART, THE HEADLIGHTS WOULD DIM, SHUT OFF OR GO REALLY BRIGHT. ALSO ON EACH RESTART THE STEERING WHEEL WOULD LOCK FOR ABOUT 2-3 SECONDS. A/C & STEREO SPEAKERS DIDN'T WORK AT ALL. AFTER DRIVING FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES THE ENGINE LIGHT TURNED ON AND A RED STEERING LIGHT WITH A WARNING WAS SHOWING WHILE THERE WAS SOME BEEPING COMING FROM THE DASHBOARD. I DIDN'T FEEL CONFIDENT OR SAFE WHILE DRIVING THE CAR BUT WE WERE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE AT THAT TIME AND MY MOM WAS RIDING WITH ME. SO I DROVE THE CAR SLOWLY AND AS SAFELY AS POSSIBLE UNTIL I MADE IT HOME. ONCE PARKED AT HOME, I TRIED TO TURN THE CAR ON AND HAD NO LUCK. TOOK THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP THIS MORNING SEP 21ST 2020, THEY CLAIM IT MIGHT BE THE ALTERNATOR. A FAIRLY NEW CAR WITH 21,000 MILES SHOULD NOT HAVE THESE ISSUES OR BURN OUT 2 BATTERIES.
THE TRANSMISSION STOPPED WORKING WHILE I WAS ON MY WAY HOME FROM WORK
ALL OF DASHBOARD LIGHTS POP ON RANDOMLY, CAR THEN SLOWS DOWN ON ITS ON RANDOMLY(MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC ETC) IT ISN'T SAFE. TOOK TO GET A DIAGNOSTIC READING DONE AND THERE ISN'T ANY ISSUES, THEY SAID THAT IT WAS ELECTRICAL ISSUES

I STOPPED AT A FRIENDS HOUSE. WHEN I LEFT, THE CAR WOULD NOT START. DASHBOARD MENTIONED MY BRAKES, MALFUNCTION. I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP. I HAD BROUGHT THE CAR IN A FEW WEEKS EARLIER BECAUSE MY ODOMETER STARTED CHANGING FROM TRIP A TO TOTAL MILEAGE EVERY TIME I RESTARTED THE CAR. IT DIDN'T DO THAT BEFORE. ALSO THE CLOCK RANDOMLY LOOKS MORE LIKE AN ERROR CODE THAN THE TIME, IT CORRECTS ITSELF AFTER 10 MIN. OR SO. I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALERSHIP THAT THE ODOMETER JUST CHANGES BACK ( I TOLD THEM IT NEVER DID THAT BEFORE) AND THE CLOCK WAS BECAUSE OF HEAT OR COLD. ITS LED, THAT IT JUST HAPPENS. AFTER HAVING THE CAR TOWED TO DEALERSHIP, THEY REPLACED THE BATTERY ( ONLY 18000 MILES ON THE CAR) I ALSO TOLD THEM MY FOB WAS SHOWING RANDOMLY LOW BATTERY, SO WHILE I WAS AT THE DEALERSHIP I ASKED THEM TO CHECK IT. HE SAID WHILE CHECKING THE FOB, SOMETIMES IT WAS SHOWING A FULL CHARGE THEN WOULD SHOW LOW BATTERY. AFTER THE CARE BATTERY WORK WAS DONE, THE NEXT MORNING WHEN I STARTED THE CAR, THE ODOMETER STAYED ON TRIP A.......HMMMMM. I AM AFRAID THAT I AM GOING TO BE STUCK WITH SOME TYPE OF ELECTRICAL PROBLEM THAT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO PAY FOR. SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT WITH THE CAR. THE SERVICE PERSONNEL NEED TO LISTEN TO WHAT I AM SAYING. I AM VERY MECHANICALLY MINDED AND THIS JUST DOES NOT MAKE SENSE.
DRIVING ON INTERSTATE AT NIGHT ALL THE SUDDEN MY CAR TURNS OFF, COASTED OFF EXIT. GOT IT STOPPED AND RESTARTED IT AND GOT GOING AGAIN. COULD HAVE BEEN MAJOR CRASH. IT ONLY HAS 13,000 MILES ON IT AND IT WAS JUST IN SERVICE DEPARTMENT LAST WEEK.

TOYOTA CH R I NOTICED HESITATION WHEN STARTING THE ENGINE ABOUT 3 DAYS PRIOR. TWO DAYS AGO THE CAR WOULD NOT START. I CALLED ROAD SIDE ASSISTANCE. I WAS GIVEN A JUMP. 8 HOURS LATER I NEEDED ANOTHER JUMP. THE CAR TURNED ON AND BUT SHORTLY AFTERWARDS THE PARKING BREAK AND LIGHTS BEGAN FLASHING ON THE CONTROL PANEL. THE CAR COULD NOT BE PUSHED. IT WAS NOT ACCELERATE NOR REVERSE. CAR WAS TOWED TO THE DEALER. THE DEALER STATES THE BATTERY WAS NOT JUMPED CORRECTLY AND THE CONTROL PANEL MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED. I ASKED FOR THE WARRANTY TO COVER THE DIAGNOSIS, BECAUSE THIS CAR SHOULD HAVE CONTROL PANEL PROTECTION TO AVOID MAJOR ISSUES. THIS CAR IS POORLY DESIGNED. IT SHOULD BE STATED ON THE BATTERY NOT JUMP THE CAR AND INFORM ME ALL THE DAMAGE THIS COULD CREATE. HOWEVER THE CAR WAS NOT JUMPED INCORRECTLY. THE DEALER SHOWED ME ACID AROUND THE BATTERY BUT NEVER SHOWED ME THE CONTROL PANEL DAMAGE. WHY IS THERE A BATTERY AND A CONTROL PANEL ISSUE ON A CAR THAT IS NEW. WHY DOES THE DIAGNOSTIC COST $280. HEADQUARTERS WAS CONTACTED. BUT NO RESOLUTION
ELECTRICAL DEFAULT. WHEN RAINING VEHICLE STATES ERROR AND TO CLEAR FRONT SENSORS. FUEL LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON AND DROVE IT DOWN TO 8 MILES TO THE TANK. DOUBLE-BOG WHEN BEGINNING ACCELERATION FROM STOP. SHAKING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS HAD IT FOR 8 MONTHS NOW AND IT'S BEEN IN THE SHOP FOR 4 DAYS AND NO ONE HAS A CLUE AS TO WHAT IS GOING ON...

I PURCHASED THIS CAR ON MARCH 9TH, 2018 AT 8:00 PM AT HERITAGE TOYOTA CATONSVILLE) AND DROVE TO WORK NEXT DAY (MARCH 10TH, 2018). WHILE DRIVING TO WORK ON THE HIGHWAY ROUTE 100, THE CAR SUDDENLY AND COMPLETELY STOPPED / DEAD IN THE MIDDLE OF HIGHWAY AND I ALMOST GOT HIT BY ANOTHER CAR BEHIND ME. I CALLED THE DEALER (HERITAGE TOYOTA CATONSVILLE WHERE I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE) TO GET THE CAR BACK AND ASKED THEM TO EXCHANGE ANOTHER ONE BUT THEY REFUSED. I'M REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT SAFETY FOR MY LIVE WHEN I HAVE TO DRIVE THIS CAR ON THE HIGHWAY TO WORK EVERYDAY. I'M EXPECTING TOYOTA TAKE THIS CAR BACK AND LET ME EXCHANGE FOR ANOTHER ONE.
WHEN HOLD FUNCTION IS ACTIVE IN VEHICLE IF PROGRESSIVELY SLOWING DOWN WHEN YOU ARE NEARING A FULL HALT THE CAR MAKES WEIRD SCREECHING AND CLANKING SOUND AND BRINGS CAR TO A SUDDEN ABRUPT STOP. IF YOU GET TO A FULL STOP BY DECELERATING PRETTY QUICKLY THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN, BUT IF YOU DECELERATE SLOWLY IT WILL HAPPEN EVERY TIME.
I JUST PURCHASED THE NEW 2018 CHR. DRIVING HOME AND CAR ENGINE HAD A BURNING ODOR WITH EXHAUST FUMES, AND THE ENGINE SHIMMIED. I PULLED OVER AS I THOUGHT THE TIRE WAS FLAT. I WENT HOME AND GOT MY SON. HE CHECKED THE ENGINE AND IT WAS OVER HEATED. I HAD ONLY DRIVEN THE NEW CAR 60 MILES IN 2 WEEKS. WE DROVE TO TOYOTA AND ALL I COULD SMELL WAS A CARBON MONOXIDE ODOR IN THE CAR WITH EXHAUST FUMES. I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO PASS OUT. THE CAR IS WITH TOYOTA FOR THE WEEKEND. I AM FILING THIS REPORT, IN CASE OTHER CAR OWNERS OF CHR HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. A RECALL SHOULD BE ISSUED AS THIS CAR HAS ONLY BEEN DRIVEN A TOTAL OF 85 MILES. IT SHOULD NOT HAVE EXHAUST FUME, BURNING ODOR SMELLS GOING INTO THE CABIN WHICH ALMOST CAUSED ME TO PASS OUT. IT COULD HAVE CAUSED AN ACCIDENT.
THE VEHICLE WILL NOT START. THE FOLLOWING ERROR MESSAGES APPEAR SIMULTANEOUSLY WHEN TRYING TO START THE VEHICLE "BRAKE OVERRIDE MALFUNCTION.

The electronic parking brake (EPB) may not operate properly, possibly causing the parking brake not to disengage after it is applied or prevent it from being applied. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard FMVSS number 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."
