And traded in my beautiful 2018 Ruby Flare C-HR XLE. I loved that car, bought it lightly used last February with 14k miles on it, but- had it in the shop 3 times, had it towed twice for dead battery, had the check engine light come in 6 times, and had multiple "little" issues like the auto dimming rearview not dimming, key fob sending signal and car beeps, but doors don't lock and mirrors don't turn in. When I traded it in and the salesman showed me the Carfax, I was the 4th owner in 2 years. I'm really hoping Toyota gets it figured out, I'd love the hybrid, but this has put a bit of a sour taste in my mouth with them. Good luck to you!

Lemon Law? Magnuson Moss act? Not sure but, with that history I would probably tried to hold them accountable and responsible for the repairs or replacement.:unsure::unsure:..
Now, I must admit that I have not had any problems with mine ("knock on wood" 🤞🤞). Mine is a 2019 Limited, 22K miles on it.

Same here, 2019 Limited, 24k miles - no issues yet. Lord-willing, it will stay that way🙏. Just wish it had a "Sport Mode" button like my wife's 2020 Rav4... 🤣

just like anything consumers buy, some have issues while some do not. compare that to our beloved cell phones...same thing...refrigerators, washers/dryers, you name it. especially with anything made on an automated assembly line, the QC can vary, while you would think it shouldn't, but it does. You can go to ANY online forum for any product and have people say it's the bee's knees, and some say it is the worst product they ever owned. you take in as much as you can but at some point, you need to make a decision to buy or not, buyers remorse can be a difficult pill to swallow.

I'm sorry for those that have had issues, I'm happy for those that have great experiences. Bottom line is that this is a Toyota and they are known for their reliability, their great customer service, but EVERY car brand/model has issues.

I agree. My CHR has been great. Besides some windshield things it’s good

Sorry about your issues and problems. The car is not garbage and is a lot of bang for your buck. Toyoya is rated as one of the best cars you can buy so don't throw the baby out with the bath waTER...

It's all about bad wiring from the battery and alternator. This is a very common problem on the Ruby Flare C-HR XLE. The alternator, when the voltage regulator relay is wiped out, starts to produce floating voltage, causing the gauges to malfunction. Which affects battery performance.

37k miles on my 2018 XLE - no issues...yet.
My Rav4 on the other hand -
Replaced Alternator (bad clutch/bearing on the pulley) - so replaced that with water pump, belt, and tensioner. (just made 110k miles today) 😁

The car is not garbage. I've had no issues with my 2019 CH-R LE. My wife has a Highlander and no issues. Toyota has a great reputation for long-lasting cars. You had a bad one.
