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 le; sun visor and cup holder broke, rear car stereo speakers have become so brittle, they crack at the touch. I don't understand why the quality of everything is so bad and the consumer suffers as a result of it. A Toyota dealer gave me a price over $900 for all repairs, but over $400 for the speaker covers, they said they had to replace the whole back panel. I went to an auto accessory shop, he can buy the covers from a Toyota dealer for $40, put them on for $65, total $105. When I contacted Toyota I was told the warranty had expired and there was nothing they could do. Prior to this, the upholstery in the roof of my car came apart at the rear window. Toyota repaired this problem, but they never explained to me why I had to replace my tires before I had 10, 000 miles on them, I think they were just bad tires. If any of these issues can be addressed I would appreciate it. I'm sure I'm not the only person having problems with the newer cars. This is my third Toyota, but I never had these problems when they believed in quality.
