Editor's Overview

Toyota is a latecomer to the subcompact-SUV game, and it makes a visual splash with the 2018 Toyota C-HR. Originally designed for the company's now-defunct Scion brand, the C-HR comes with a long list of standard equipment that doesn't include Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but does include active safety technology, including active cruise control and collision mitigation.

There's not a lot of backseat space.

Overall I love the car. The few complaints I do have are about a lack of small features and options. Firstly, I cannot turn off the warning beep when I switch lanes without a blinker. I get the safety issue, but I live in a town with two sided parking and having to touch the line to get around parked cars. It beeping every time is annoying. Also I do not like that there is nowhere to put change, and no pocked behind the front seats. Other than that, it is a great car.

In summary, the c-hr is very sporty while giving a comfortable and reliable ride.

I absolutely love this c-hr. It is very sporty and stylish. The accessories are wonderful from the dash display, radio system and all the driver assist features. I really like the lane assist where it beeps if I start to veer out of my lane. The blind spot indicators on the side mirrors and a good thing to since it is a bit difficult to see out of the rear windows in this car. The only thing I would change would be to have sunroof option.

The car that helps you drive.

My car is very sporty looking but very roomy also it has many features that a lot of cars had to have added. The back up camera, lane change warning system, the cruise control is advance and it has steering help also, it also lets you know when you get too close to center lane. . It almost drives for you. . Gas mileage is awesome. . And never needing a key to start a car and never have to worry about locking yourself out of your car.

Parking Brake Nov 14, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 14, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V717000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2018 Toyota CH-R vehicles. 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."
Consequence:
If the EPB cannot be applied, there is an increased risk of a vehicle rollaway if the vehicle is parked on a hill without being placed into "Park."
Remedy:
Toyota has notified owners, and dealers will update the programming of the skid control ECU as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on November 30, 2017. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is H0W.
