Although being a very young model, the 2018 C-HR has already selected as one of the Best Small SUVs by Edmunds.com. Now, it is still in its first generation.
The North American production version Toyota C-HR made its debut at the November 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show for the 2017 model year. In North America, it was originally planned to be sold as a Scion before that marque was discontinued. The current C-HR offers just two trim levels, the well-equipped base XLE and the XLE Premium and it is available as a 5-door hatchback. Standard features on the C-HR include 18-inch wheels, automatic headlights with automatic high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, a rear spoiler, remote locking and unlocking, a driver information display, adjustable driving modes and many others. And now it is powered by a 2.0 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque and its power is sent through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) to the front wheels or four wheels.

Therefore, once the Check Engine Light is activated and you find the vehicle is gulping oil, then the C-HR spark plug, engine mount, oil filter, air filter, fuel pump and valve cover gasket must have something wrong.
Second, suspension failure. This is also a very common problem on the Toyota C-HR according to experienced vehicle owners.

The unsteady ride and grinding noises from underneath the vehicle are often misunderstood as the friction between tires and rocks on the road.
