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.

I have a 2005 Toyota Camry that I bought new in 9/05 that I drive for work & have put apx 21000 miles on to date. I have on 4 separate occasions had to replace the original equipment Goodyear tires (integrity) due to holes in the sidewalls on the inside of the tires. I may now have to replace a fifth, I have a tire which is now leaking air & will return to Goodyear on 1/5. I do drive for work & I am careful, because if I am not working, I am not making any money, down time is costly. I feel there may be a weakness defect in the sidewalls that needs further attention.
