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 #2

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


1 - seat belt - gets stuck, causing it to be inoperable and floppy. The plastic guide allows the webbing belt to get stuck in it. 2 - I cannot buy replace the belt, an important, common, inexpensive item, from anyone, but the dealer $200 + $100 labor. I can purchase lap belt for $15, but that is not good enough and does not fix the problem. Good design for the manufacturer, cheap because rightwas same as left, but poor design for me as it casused belt to be worn and get stuck. Car was 2005, but has 65000 so no more warranty. -maybe there should be for all car makers, extended warranty for certain items that wear out over time, safety items like seat belts, that wear out over time, 36 months 3 years, mostly due to poor design.
