DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach couple is suing Toyota, claiming the CH-R subcompact sport utility vehicle is a disaster — unfixable by Toyota’s authorized service technicians.

Fred and Shari Silver, through their attorneys, allege that the C-HR has a defective engine as evidenced by noise generated with the air conditioner compressor cycles on at idle, was made shoddily with trim chipping and steering wheel delamination; a defective climate control system; and additional defects.

Toyota, according to the suit, was given multiple opportunities to fix the vehicle but could not. Lemon law statues in Florida typically give a manufacturer three opportunities to fix a vehicle before it is declared a “lemon.” The Silvers, according to the suit, did pursue a remedy in Florida’s lemon law arbitration system but a panel ruled in favor of Toyota.

The Silvers paid just under $30,000 for the CH-R.

There was no immediate response filed by the Toyota Motor Company to the suit initiated in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.
