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

2003 Camry SE, despite two returns to dealer, still consistantly drifts and/or veers to the left. Head technician stated that this was the #2 complaint on late model Camry's, and that there was nothing that could be done, as it was the "nature" of the car. I feel this is a very unsafe situation (especially since it is most evident at highway speeds), and have read that it is, in fact, a very common complaint among 2002/2003 Camry owners. Someone could easily get hurt or killed, with this many Camry's out on the road and, evidentally, many (all?) having the same problem.
