Toyota C-HR Hybrid (2020)

Published on 23. 10. 2020

Problem description:

The front right-hand axle shafts may have been produced with lower material strength.

If an affected vehicle is frequently driven under certain conditions where higher torque is applied to the front axle shafts, such as rapid acceleration when starting, the shaft may break, leading to loss of driving force and increased the risk of an accident.

The Toyota C-HR Hybrid models affected by this recall were manufactured between 5 and 21 January 2020 (K53BX) and 7 and 8 January 2020 (K54BX).

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Toyota dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
