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.

Purchased new set of pirelli four season passenger tires at large-chain membership store for 2005 Toyota Camry. Less than 1 year later one of four began loosing air and took it in for inspection. Tire shop found sidewalls were failing with noticeable bulging in several places and replaced with brand new tire (minus small prorated warranty + installation fee). Drove away happy and assuming was just a fluke but within 20 miles on way out of town driving normal 65 mph on major freeway the brand new tire blew out with complete inner sidewall failure. Was very scary and at night but managed to pull over and replace with the spare. Next day the tire shop replaced with another new tire which unfortunately was of the exact same lot and date # as that was all they had in stock. Took talking to the manager to get them to not charge me a second installation fee as they tried to do given it was less than 16 hours since I bought the failed tire. The second guy and the shop told me side bar and off the record that these were really bad tires but the first guy the prior day said they were good. Hoping for the best but really makes me uneasy heading out for a long trip on these pirelli tires after two separate sidewall issues like this.

This is concerning the Bridgestone Fusion touring tire 205/65R15-94H. We had driven our Camry to North Carolina from Florida and back in July or August 2015. It was very hot (in the 90's). I then drove in Florida from melbourne beach to tallahassee and back in the heat again in August. My car was vibrating at over 70 miles per hour. When I took the car to my mechanic, one of the tires had shredded. In late September 2015, we drove from Florida to hilton head and the car was vibrating again. We took it to a mechanic in hilton head and the belt in one of the tires had separated. Since two tires out of four have had structural problems I think these tires may have a defect or cannot withstand being driven in high temperatures and can be dangerous. I would like them looked at for recall.

I have a 2005 Toyota Camry le, I bought Goodyear assurance tires back in May 2010 as a set of 4 tires. These tires have a manufacturer warranty of 80000 miles though after driving for about 35000 miles the tire tread depth came down to below 2/32nd and the dealer denied taking the car out of dealership without a replacement or an assurance of immediate replacement. I had to replace the tire within 2 hrs after coming out of dealership as they didn't have a ready available tire from non-Goodyear brand. I am wondering how this tires got down to such a low tread depth so soon? I mostly drive in the city and only few time highway that too not more than 300 miles. This certainly is the worst tires. Goodyear denied providing the warranty coverage as to do so I have to take the vehicle to their authorized shop and the dealership is not one of their authorized shop, which is surprising. Since dealer told me to replace the tire immediately, my first priority was to get new tires and with such worst experience with Goodyear, I didn't wanted them again. And they will not accept their tire for warranty if they are not on the wheel. Very ridiculous rules that puts greedy profit before safety! my dealer also found this odd. I want money back for almost half of the total mileage promised by Goodyear but they are too corrupt and so they have NHTSA also on their side to bring anything against them.

Purchased 4 mastercraft glaciergrip tires 12/11/10. Drove 2451 miles and had regular tires put back on 3/17/11. Put mastercraft tires back on 11/17/11 and drove 134 miles when left front tire blew out. I was on I-81 South and had to drive on the tire to get off the highway. I was told be the dealer they would have to send the tire back to the company. They told me they would have to charge me for a replacement tire until he heard from the company. They never called me back. Five weeks later I called, for the third time, and was told it was denied. I drove on the tires another 2891 miles and the right front tire blew out. I went back to the dealer and they took that tire to send back to the company and asked if they could pull the back two tires to look at them. I said okay and I was told they were fine. I went directly to another tire installer, 8 miles away, to get the tires off and put the regular tires back on the car. When the installer pulled the left rear tire off, the same one that was just inspected, there was a huge bubble on it. He told me the tire was defective. I took it back to the dealer where I purchased the tires and was told they would have to send that tire back to the company as well. It's over two weeks and I have not been contacted.

We were driving home from lancaster, ca to ventura, ca. While driving we heard a strange noise and then my husband (who was driving) said the car was difficult to steer. As quickly and safely as we could we got to an offramp. We had a flat on the left front tire. During my call to aaa, my husband decided he would change the tire so I cancelled the request for service. Getting back on the freeway we heard the same noise that we had heard earlier so we pulled off the freeway again and saw that we had another flat tire, this was on the rear right. I called aaa and they had to tow us to ventura (approximately 40 miles) since we used the spare tire for the 1st flat. When we got to the sears automotive center, they told us that there had been a recall on the tire valves on our tires which we had purchased from sears on July 18, 2007. One other comment - on May 6, 2009, the front right tire went flat at my work place; aaa put the spare on and then we brought it into sears to have it repaired. They said there was a nail in it - no mention of tire valve problems.

The car started wandering and wearing tires about 5000 miles, I took it to the dealer and they said nothing was wrong with it. I got it lined up, the car started wandering again, the dealer says there is nothing wrong that they can see. But the car is wearing tires out on the inside front. The car is wandering from side to side pretty bad and if you hit a dip in the road it will follow it. If that is Toyota's answer to a good ride then I wont buy another one. I also have a gas pedal play problem.
