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.

2005 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 222006

Camry 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


When the car was only six months old, the power steering started to make noise. I took the car to the dealer and was told the power steering pump had to be replaced, but that they would have to order the part. So, I had to make another trip to the dealer to have the work done (under warranty). After the repair the noise stopped, but the steering still didn't feel right to me. I took the car back to the dealer and they drove the car and inspected the steering system and told me everything looked fine. Nonetheless, I am quite sure the steering is different than when I first got the car. Sometimes the steering seems to catch and I feel like I don't have good control, particularly during a wide left turn through a large intersection.
