having a real hard time with the electric power steering in my new 2009 Corolla LE. I think there is a real
problem with keeping this car going straight on the highway. You constantly
find yourself drifting off center, you make the slightest adjustment and the
car over-corrects. The steering is way to sensitive. It makes highway driving a
very tiresome activity.
I had this "problem" but there wasn't anything wrong with the car - it was just my driving...
The steering is just sensitive and "sporty" - try driving with a much lighter hand - even one hand, lower on the wheel. I now find the steering great and its actually very responsive.
It took 3 visits to Toyota before someone finally explained this to me but it works. People kept explaining that it "drives like a Corolla" but couldn't tell me how to drive it better.
Mind you the car is still horrible on windy days but I don't have same issues in normal highway driving.
A year ago I was actually renting cars for road trips instead of driving my 09 Corolla S I was that freaked out about the steering but I'm now completely comfortable driving the car. I do have to warn everyone that drives my car on the highway though...they never believe me at first but always concede that I'm right and that a light hand makes a huge difference.

I also have the same steering problem. I bet you it's similar to the gas accelerator problems. I see these complaints are about a year old and Toyota hasn't fixed the 2009 Toyota Corolla.

I own the corolla LE with navigation and perks. the steering on a windy day is pretty bad so of course you find yourself
re correcting. the electric steering is really responsive which is great. the 2009-2010 corolla was built with the autobon high way in mind. im pretty sure i spelled that wrong. if you drive your vehicle at high speeds like 65-75 around a curve you will see that your vehicle is very responsive. many times when it comes to steering because many people still hold the wheel at 10 and 2 your vehicle will respond differently where if you hold the wheel in the lower area.
