I just got my C-HR back from Toyota after 5 days in the shop. I've got a brand new transmission and torque converter compliments of Toyota. I was very pleased that they stepped up and covered this even though the car is out of warranty. Kuddos to Toyota for taking care of their customers. FYI, the parts and labor costs for the job was $8,339.85.
I hope my dealership helps me out.

Has anyone posted a summary of what models, or Vin #'s, have been having the transmission problem? Is it a batch related issue that affects a specific group of transmissionS?

Has anyone sought out an attorney to bring a class action suit against Toyota for defective transmissions for the 2018 CHR. I heard a high pitch noise comming out of my CHR and took it in to the dealer in which i was told the transmission was shot and would be around 8 grand to fix. This is about 40 percent of the vehicle cost and seems outlandish to me. In addition the vehicle has 84 thousand miles on it and I must say at 51 I have never had a transmission go out in all my years on a vehicle without a minimum of 100000 miles on it. I find it very ironic that the dealer told me there were 1000's of units on B/O and may be quite awhile to get one in, although no recal has been issued. Toyota there is something very fishy about your actions and / or lack there of. Step up and own your errors please!

My 2018 CH-R started having the “whinning” noise about 58k miles, I didnt make it in to the dealer until 62k, where they told me it was the front bearings. Have the bearings replaced and issue continued. They (dealer) admit is transmission, but will only cover 50% cause am am out of warranty! I’ve had 10 Toyotas in my life time, of which I still own 5! With 100k’s of miles in each and NOT tone has ever failed. Now Toyota wont cover?!?! For a fairly new vehicle?!! I called Toyota and they have NO records of any CHR having “this” transmission issue . I have created a case, Toyota NEEDs to be informed of all these issues so we can get a recall or Notice of issue, and have them be liable for the cost. The number I calledis 1-800-331-4331

UK Model. I have a 2018 c-hr icon hybrid. Recently purchased from a Toyota dealer with 10500 miles on the clock. Since picking it up I’ve had a whirring type of noise coming from the front end. Sounds very much like tyre related noise, also happens anywhere from 40mph+. Especially bad on sweeping right hand bends in the road. Over the past few days it’s got a lot worse, I can feel vibration through the wheel and accelerator. I took it into Toyota and three days later they’re still trying to diagnose it. They’ve replaced the near side front wheel bearing and removed an all season tyre which was on the front axle alongside a summer tyre. The issue still exists. They have sent off a recording of the noise to Toyota to see what else they need to look at. My guess it’s the tranny, however the vehicles so low mileage. I’ll update in due course.
