There is nothing wrong with the car, yes people have had a few problems but this is a brand new car and I know not of one car manufacture who hasn't had problems with a brand new car, in fact some manufactures still have problems with their cars years after it going into production.

This is my first Toyota and I went for Toyota because of its known to be a solid and reliable builder of cars, I love my CH-R the build quality is good, the plastics etc are of a high quality it is simply a great car.

You will not regret buying it.

It is easy to focus on minor negatives, honestly I have driven many cars of different makes including BMW Audi and Mercedes and the CHR is simply a very good car
It is quiet, very good mpg, speed is not an issue, beautiful to look at a real head turner. Some people only focus on a minor point and miss the good.

Dont threat there are always some people who are never happy, i for one have not had a problem with the car and think the build quality is excellent, this is what a forum is for ,airing for better or worst the points of the car, but you will always get more people airing bad points than you will good its just the way we are, and as StadtPanzer has already said you will not regret buying it ,i for one dont

A week before i got my C-HR I had some of the doubts you are having. Wasn't sure if I made the right decision. Now after almost a week of driving it and some trouble I had with the rubberless wiper, i do very much love my C-HR. On the inside it doesn't feel cheap or bad quality at all. Driving it is really all i could hope for but for other people that could depend on what car you drove before.

On the outside I haven't noticed any gaps or other quality issues. I have read those reviews about the quality too and will inspect my car further tomorrow to see if i can notice the same issues.

Try not to read the reviews untill you get your C-HR, that would have been the advice i would have given myself the day I ordered my car. It's great to hear opinions about the C-HR before you decide to buy the car. But when the waiting starts for the delivery, it can really be bad for the mind :)

I love my CH-R. Great build quality and really high class finish.
Only problem I had is the dealership putting small scratches on the piano black interior and slight surface scratches on the paint work when they were prepping the car.
Dealership is replacing the interior and carrying out full clean and polish.

I used to think a brand new car will just be like the next brand new car. But sometimes you will get a friday afternoon one. So ignore me when I ramble about this and that as I got one of those cars and fell out with the dealer.

When the new shape civic came out in 2005 it had a door seal issue which they remedied as soon as they realised. I think this could be the case for the first batch of chrs. Which i got as i got a bog standard one that had rust on suspension components already so it had been sat around a long time. Plus I had the screen crack. So I got the worst of the worst and I still like driving it. Ignore everyone and make your own mind up.

I am really enjoying mine, if you don't comment on things they don't get picked up and remedied. I've only had a wheelbearing changed under warranty from my three previous Toyotas, so I don't have any long term reliability worries.
Pity the VW owners with smokey petrol TSI engines.

I just love my CH-R. I previously had a very Eos convertible so this is just as different as could be. No issues at all and I'm just loving the higher up view and the fact I can do some journeys entirely on the battery

I agree we should all make our own minds up but your issues with that dealer were very important to highlight so others can avoid them, minor niggles are also important to the individual. Just hope they don't put people off what is a very good car.

I guess up until now I had a car that makes me feel sick through incompetence and poor fit and finish. So big things to me would be less to others due to allergies. On a plus note I dont think fumes are coming in the boot now I fitted an exhaust tip. If anyone wants to tow you can set it down or to the side and reduce exposure in your caravan too.

52mm from halfords. Bolts removed and filed flat inside. Then slotted with a hacksaw. Painted and clamped on. Like a glove.

I personally think the car could do with a little more power. I've got the Excel with the 1.2 Litre Turbo engine. And going up hill you can really feel the car struggle. Also the fuel consumption and the how many miles it predicts you can do is utter bullshit. I put around 8 litres of petrol into it and it said I could do 110 miles. I then drove to my friend and back, he lives pretty close to me and it was a 15 min ago journey with traffic. I got there and came back home later on. I had 65 miles of fuel left. And while it does help changing the car to eco mode, the car is a lot slower struggles even more going up hill and the fuel consumption is still alot. I'm constantly refueling it. My previous car the ford focus with the 1.6 litre engine used way less fuel than this chr. And I did not expect that!

Other than the problem with the fuel and power of of the car. There is one big problem which isn't the car, but the dealership. I had my car booked in a couple days ago to change the windscreen of the car, they told me if would take them until 5 and that I should come collect it after that. I called them at 4 that following day asking whether the car was ready or not. They told me the windscreen is done, but they need to do some calibration to the car. It took them 2 more days to do it. I got to car back yesterday and the car sensors are completely fucked. I don't know what they've done, so in calling them tomorrow since they are closed right now to see what they're going to do about it!
