I've had my CHR Dynamic for about a year now it has only 3k miles on it

I'm not sure if I'm just paranoid but the heating to get warm inside the car takes about 10 minutes / 3 miles and the outside temperature is 8c in the driving mode normal not eco.

When I try to change the heating from fast to eco I hear the fans change speed but I don't see any visual queue that it has changed.

Does anybody else's heating take a long time to get any heat?

***side note. My boss pressured me into driving through deep water about up to the front registration plate and a car came the other way with wake ( I know it was stupid, my probation ended the next day so I felt a bit pressured to do what he said)

I don't think the cabin heating is one of the CHRs strong points.

Most certainly it seems that the blower fan has to be on quite high to maintain a comfortable heat throughout the car.

Our Corolla seemed much, much better in this respect.

The demisting of the front screen on the CHR seems quite good once the settings are sorted but the rear screen appears to clear slowly and in stages. I've heard of two-stage rear screens but could find nothing of that nature in the CHR handbook.

Thanks for reply. I'm not having any trouble with the cabin misting up it clears right easy. My worry is how long the car actually takes to heat up now and I'm wondering if anything electric could have got damaged from being in deep water :)

My CHR took approximately 10-14 min to heat up today with the temperature outside of -2 degrees.

I have a 19 plate CHR 1.8 hybrid, the heating took 20 mins to heat up this morning at -1 and after half an hour the front window were still misted up.
Has been back to Toyota they said it was fine.
I have tried all buttons including the mist front screen heating with aircon it just seems unfit for purpose and is very disappointing, can anyone help please?

Something must be wrong with yours,
On mine, I just press the button to demist front window, as soon as I do that car does all on its own,
Turns on AC
Puts fans fo full speed
Never tried with - 1 temperature but sometimes 6 or 7 degrees,
It's fast taking like 1 minute, maybe not even that much
Does yours turn AC on when you press front demist button?

Same as IceColdCrash@ here.
This morning was cold. A 6-7C with realfeel 2. Humidity 80%. Cause Dublin.
AC on all the time. All vents open at maximum. Always.
Temperature was set at 23. It took a minute or so and all was good inside the car. No mist, no troubles.

Frozen windscreen last night and condensation on the inside. Scraped outside of screen and gave about 5 minutes blast from screen demist before attempting to move , screen was still partly frosted and condensation was stubborn on upper part of screen. For a new car (1 year ) I thought this was pretty poor. I shall be carrying my karcher window vac from now on during winter.
