I tested a 2005 Corolla S (16,660 K miles) and when the speed was between 50-60 MPH a woouumm woouumm kind of noise started (sometimes it seemed to be in the front sometimes from the rear) and after 60 MPH the woouumm woouumm becomes a regular woouumm, hardly noticeable due to the engine rev up and increased outside noise. Since the car had the original tires and the front ones were kind worn out, and due to the low mileage, I decided to buy the car. After several months I installed new tires but the woouumm woouumm still exists. The car behaves beautifully at road speeds but when I reach the 95-100 MPH there is a slight vibration in the steering wheel. My first impression was that the woouumm woouumm noise was from the bearings (front or rear ones), but since the car still has 29,000 miles and seems strange that a relatively new car already has bearing problems. I have checked the front axles and boots and they seem OK. What is your opinion?

Without testing the vehicle myself, I would guess it may be the drums (rear brakes) are out of round. If you have replaced them with after market they have likey come from the factory out of round.
The other simple answer is that you have cord seperation in the tires.
Does the steering wheel shake/wobble between 5-15 MPH? If so, the tires have cord/casing issues.
could very well be a timing issue if it sounds like a rattling or a very poor grade ofuel. If you are using regular fuel, try putting some premium in next fuel up. It should be repaired mconyuinued driving can cause damge.
No electric control. If no abnormal noises or feel from power steering system, no leaks, etc, I would assume it normal. Road feel should improve with speed, but this is really dependent on what you've been accustomed to.
Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.
96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
To my knowledge, the only possible source of any growl (noise) underneath the car towards the center or rear would be the exhaust pipe after the converter before the muffler. Often they use rubber dougnuts as hanger support. A loose or broken support would significantly misalign thie exhaust pipe enough to cause vibration or wind induced noise.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
had the same problem it was the u joints....if you get a vibration at higher speeds that will also be an indicater...on the 2005 exterras you have to replace the whole drive cshaft fortunatly min was under drive train warranty.
