Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2005 Camry. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2005 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 2005 Camry, our data for the Camry is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Camry's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles
Both 02 sensors went out along with fuel sensor with under 2000 miles. Then the catalytic converter went out under 5000 miles. The airbag light are off then on "?? dealer said working properly? dealer said it would be fixed 18 days later? they said parts were bad and not the right parts for the car" car stalls and accelerates. It get 12mpg since 02's and fuel sensors fixed. Bad gas mileage.
