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.

: the contact stated while driving various speeds on the highway, the vehicle pulled to the right side of the road without warning. It was inspected by a dealer, who determined the front coil springs needed to be readjusted. Afterwards, the problem persisted. The manufacturer was not alerted.

I own a 2004 Toyota Solara and form forums I been going to 3 out of 5 owners seems to have the same issue which is that the new cars seem to pull to the left when ever speeding up also the tire pressure indicator keeps going off... so far Toyota dealerships haven't been able to find out but from what I know one of the owners of a 2004 Solara has been able to detect the problem which is that the problem resides in the spring pressure (or something like that). They basically need to rotate the springs seating in the perch about a quarter inch to fix the problem. That way it would stop the car from pulling to the left and also not causing the light indicator to go off....
