Came out of work 7/24/18 and my back window on hatch had exploded. Both sides are blown out and the entire window was crystalized. There are no impact points showing anything hit the window. The glass blew out, not into the car. Drove it to dealership collision center in okc. They have the car and have given me a loaner. Their feeling is this is a manufacture defect, but someone from local Toyota has looked at it and said no. It is being escalated to decide if Toyota is liable and should pay for this repair. With this being a new model, I'm concerned this will be happening to others.

I just purchased the new 2018 chr. Driving home and car engine had a burning odor with exhaust fumes, and the engine shimmied. I pulled over as I thought the tire was flat. I went home and got my son. He checked the engine and it was over heated. I had only driven the new car 60 miles in 2 weeks. We drove to Toyota and all I could smell was a carbon monoxide odor in the car with exhaust fumes. I felt like I was going to pass out. The car is with Toyota for the weekend. I am filing this report, in case other car owners of chr have the same problem. A recall should be issued as this car has only been driven a total of 85 miles. It should not have exhaust fume, burning odor smells going into the cabin which almost caused me to pass out. It could have caused an accident.
