Toyota C-HR Recalls

Toyota is recalling its 2018 C-HR and 2012-2015 Prius Plug-In hybrids due to faulty equipment. There is an issue with 2018 CHRís electric parking break, it may fail to disengage or engage, resulting in unacceptable safety standards. About 28,000 CHRís with the model year 2018 are affected by this recall.

Owners of the affected vehicles will receive notification from Toyota by mail starting in January of 2018.

That's unfortunate... However, I hope it won't take a long time to fix it.

It won't take too long. The dealer will install a plastic cover in front of the button for you.

No big deal. Just a plastic cover. This was already known in July. See this topic on UK forum : https://www.chrforums.uk/viewtopic.p...&t=926&p=10590

The EPB malfunction issue I am having is a different problem that the one that requires the plastic cover over the switch. My issue, so I am being told, requires an update to the computer program system and will be coming out Nov 22, 2017. The C-HR already has the cover by the EPB switch on the center console when the vehicle was launched here in Canada

This malfunction is a different issue.

Oh, okay. I thought that they will need to remove the whole thing and install the new one. Thanks for explaining!

Ten secs to open the plastic bag. Five secs to install

I thought the electronic parking brake was more of a systems issue than a physical one since the fix is an ECU update.
