I preordered my BZ4X car 2022 May. The main reason for preordering is the brand trust and reliability of the car. Due to the recent recalls and bad reviews all over the internet I am having second thought. Anyone else feeling the same? Posting some of my concerns here.. Please address if you have mor info.
  1. Recalls are tagged to this model and it may have impact on the resale value
  2. Toyota recent press release itself says that it is not fully into electric cars. So high chance for a half baked(proven from the recalls) car.
  3. I don't understand why this car was bashed by the reviewers. Biggest complaint all reviewers have is with the name!! What kind of BS is this? Is this because Toyota is not paying the reviewers or the car is not that good
  4. Anyone have official info about the FWD charging curve? I could only see the ADW curve in this forum.

I order in November 2021 and I have no concern about Toyota's quality or what they have said about EVs publically. Toyota has had "EV's" in different forms for over 20 years. The difference now is they have a fully dedicated EV with decades of engineering behind it. Recalls? Look up Hyundai and Kia's recalls,(yes, even their EV's) and you will be entertained for a while.

I just read this review this morning. Like many others, they are pretty impressed overall:

If anything, I think the BZ4X will prove a lot of people wrong. To date, most of what has been written is by people who haven't even driven the car. They look at the specs and say it's a failure. If you look at the specs of a Corolla or RAV4, they are not terribly special. Yet they are top selling vehicles which the market can't get enough of. Toyota builds dependable vehicles at fair prices. BZ4X will prove to be a strong player once owners start sharing their experiences.

Thanks for sharing this. Yes, even I feel that the reviewers are just with an agenda to promote the Ioniq 5 or ev6.

Welcome @chinnan! I don't know what the second hand market is like in Finland but given what it's like in North America I wouldn't be worried about resell value. As far as build quality goes I'm not worried either, the fact that Toyota addressed this early is promising, and as you said they have a reputation to maintain so they're not going to let the bZ4X be a bad vehicle, especially as their first EV.

Early is definitely before the recall.. I know Tesla, Hyundai, Kia had recall, but that doesn't justify Toyota's recall. Just imagine you had BZ4X and it was taken from you.. you will understand
