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.

I purchased a 2003 Toyota Camry and discovered what I think is a safety concern.the turn signal left or right does not shut off automaticly when exiting or entering a ramp or when taking a turn that does not requier a full turn of the steering wife been in two altercations, one of road rage from another driver and the other was a near accident all due to signal not shuting off automaticly when returning the steering wheel back from making a left or right turn.never in the 26 years of my driving cars and trucks have I had vehicle that has done this and I feel this is a safety issue. I called Toyota headquarters about this problem and they said flat out that they do not owe me an explination.its to bad I expected a more responsible reply from one of the world's best car manufacturers
