If you are contemplating purchasing a used Toyota CH-R, taking the time to make these checks is essential. Before you purchase, you should make sure your investment is as safe and roadworthy as required to register it and, more importantly, keep you safe. 

 What to look for in a Used CH-R 

Body Integrity 

It is easy to get excited with appearance of a Used Toyota CH-R and miss small details that could spell difficulty or time out at the mechanics. For example, checking the body while stationary and on a test drive for squeaks, rattles, or wind noise can indicate loose, cracked or damaged seals that leads to air or water leaks. In some seasons, this can mean rust, others mould. In both cases, it is an expensive repair that can be easily missed. Likewise, ripples in the paintwork and cracks in the fibreglass can indicate impact damage or repairs.  

In-Car Electronics 

The CH-R is known for its modern interior with the latest technology. However, if you are not confident in these systems, it is highly advised to get a technician to test them for you. Ken Mills Toyota Sunshine Coast can assist with this. Obvious signs of damage or neglect are damaged screens or sensors, silenced alarms that should typically indicate danger (lane departure warnings, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert).   


The all-new Hybrids have some electronics that should be a priority to get professionally checked before purchasing. For example, the push-button ignition switches, battery for hybrid and regular battery, alternator and spark plugs should all be tested and checked to ensure optimum performance and genuine parts have been used if repairs are conducted.  

Poor Repairs and Non-Genuine Accessories 

Having poorly fitted, incorrectly fitted, or non-genuine parts can compromise the warranty on a Toyota vehicle. If a poor repair or the non-genuine part fails, it can void the warranty on that part and any other parts of the vehicle that are damaged by the failure. If a repair causes the engine or other parts to fail, you could have a void warranty on your hands, so it is always advisable to get a certified technician or mechanic to check this for you. Ken Mills Toyota Service Department is available to assist you in ensuring warranty compliance in used vehicles.   


Lastly, check all the required paperwork to ensure your vehicle will pass the safety check for registration, but remember, safety does not include a value check. Other reports advised to ensure you are getting value and a long-life potential include service history, recall checks, car history report to ensure it hasn't been stolen, been in a severe accident or tampered with. This gives you peace of mind that your potential purchase hasn't been harmed or neglected with hidden problems.
