Hey guys,
I'm looking for your honest opinions here and I really appreciate your help.

I'm going to be able to retire soon, so I want to buy a new vehicle that will last me for years to come. I'm going to tow a small, 15 to 17 foot long boat at times, and a camper at other times. Neither one should weigh more than 1,500 pounds.
Also, I need a vehicle with a lower seat height because my wife is in a wheelchair and will need to transfer over.

I'm concerned about the CVT transmission holding up on this vehicle. I've seen several sites complain about the 2018 C-HR's CVT failing, and several threads here. I'm hoping that the 2021 has a better designed CVT, does anyone know if they have improved them?

So, should I buy the C-HR, or do you think there is a better vehicle for my needs?

Thanks for your feedback,
Dave

Yes, I would definitely look into another vehicle if you are looking to tow anything. The CVT transmissions are definitely not rated for that in any way. Sounds like you need more of a crossover/small suv, not a crossover/small hatchback. These cars are pretty much made to get from point a to point b and that's it.

It is a good city car. Especially if you are a young parent, I bought such a car for my wife. We purchased the Hybrid version of the vehicle, and it is pretty good. Of course, it is not the fastest car in the world, but it is small enough for comfortable city driving and spacious in the interior. I like its driving qualities. The steering wheel is satisfying, the suspension works perfectly, and it is changing gears smoothly. We bought CH-R because Toyotas are famous for their durable cars that are hard to break.
