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

Mar 122005

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The problem is with the aluminum alloy chrome wheels. I purchased new tires at sears in December of 2004 with all new valve stems and speed balances. Approximately 2 to 3 months later, 2 & 3 tires were losing air (slowly) constantly. Sears showed me that the alloy rim was deteriorating around the valve stems and that I should take it back to the dealer. Because it was over the warranty mileage, the dealer (route 44 Toyota in raynham, mass.) wouldn't do anything about this. I even went to the district managers office with no luck. I explained to them that all I wanted was the standard wheel for replacement with wheel covers. My point is, if tires lose the air inflation, there's likely to be "tire failure" contributing to more accidents on our national highways. I'm sure I'm not the only one with "alloy wheels" with this problem. Can we do something to prevent road deaths on our highways because of these flawed "aluminum alloy wheels"?
