Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2004 Camry. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2004 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 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 2004 Camry, our data for the Camry is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Camry's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

While driving vehicle swayed to the left. Vehicle was serviced, tires were rotated, and alignment done. However, vehicle was still swaying to the left. Manufacturer will not assist.

I have a 2004 Toyota camery purchased in April/04. Like many others, my car drifts to the left into other lanes. This is a major safety issue as this could result in accidents and injuries. The car will not drive straight on any type of road surface. From various readings, there is a problem with the springs. This problem has existed for several years now and Toyota has been ignoring this problem. Please force Toyota to fix this problem!
