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.

My wife unknowingly drove on a flat tire. After I collected her and the car, I took the tire to sears and they said the valve stem failed. The tire was replace but I had to pay for it. Months later, she had a nail in a tire so I took the car back to sears. They patched it, and a week or so later it was flat again. When I took it in, I noticed another tire was flat and that had a bad valve stem. So, now 3 of the original valve stems had been replaced. Last night, she had another flat tire, I changed it, and it was the remaining valve stem. I bought the tires at sears and complained after the second valve stem that there was a problem. The manager said that my wife must be driving up on curbs. I checked the dates and the tires were installed right in the middle of the recall period. Sears is not handling this problem well--they are putting people on the road with defective valve stems. I did not know officially that there was a documented problem until I returned from sears this morning and did some checking on the internet.
