Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2003 Camry. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2003 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 2003 Camry, our data for the Camry is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Camry's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

2003 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 192011

Camry LE 2.4L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 177,000 miles


I own (2) 2003 Camry LE 4 cyl with the water noise what sound like behind the dash. One has 157,000 miles and other 177,000 miles. I have owned both since 70,000 miles and not one time had any repair work done to them. I just change oil and flush transmission fluid, brakes and tires. Super reliable. This year di dhave bad Catalytic converter, and valve seals which makes car throw white smoke at start ups buts still very reliable. Most reliable cars I have owned and still much more reliable than any Domestic car hands down.
