NHTSA — Exterior Lighting: Brake Lights: Switch Problems
CarComplaints.com Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2005 Camry. It is almost certainly inaccurate.
The problem with NHTSA data for the 2005 Camry is that for months on end, the news media repeatedly told the public that the Camry had an unintended acceleration defect, & to go to safercar.gov (the NHTSA's website) to file a complaint.
So, the NHTSA received a disproportionate number of complaints about 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.
CarComplaints.com typically receives more complaints per day about vehicles than the NHTSA does, but the news media did not repeatedly say "go to CarComplaints.com 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.
