Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2005 Camry. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2005 Camry is that for months on end, the news media repeatedly told the public that several Toyota models had an unintended acceleration defect, & to go to (the NHTSA's website) to file a complaint.

So, the NHTSA received a disproportionate number of complaints about Toyota unintended acceleration issues because of the national news media attention, to the point where their data is unreliable taken in context with any other vehicle that did not receive national news attention. typically receives more complaints per day about vehicles than the NHTSA does, but the news media did not repeatedly say "go to to report your Camry acceleration problems" like they did about the NHTSA -- so although we have less complaint data than the NHTSA for the 2005 Camry, our data for the Camry is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Camry's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

2005 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 132010

Camry LX 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles


I bought my camry in the end of Dec' 04. It is a 2005 model. I put only 28,000 miles and water pump went bad. I am taking care of vehicle and doing service regularly. I can't believe this that Toyota camry is such good brand vehicle and it has defective part inside. Because of out of warranty period, the dealer refused to take care of it. I have not approach Toyota so far and I don't know whether it is worth to notify them or not. Moreover, I have another issue about driver side seat belt. It stucks often.

I am sure that my next vehicle will not be from Toyota anymore.
