Interesting two weeks ago two co workers flew across state for a local sporting event. They came over early so they could spend a three days and see the sites. When I met them at the hotel the first night they had toyota Corolla LE rental car. We joked that we both were driving the same car just different color. When the were done with the trip i asked them what they thought of the car and how it handled.
There response ( they both drove it) was great fun to drive and after three days of going all over the gas gauge was slow to move. I then asked if they noticed anything differant about the steering the one said it felt tight but no complaints that nothing jumped out. He asked why so i explained on what some have noticed he said he didn't notice any thing that would make him take notice. He owns a 2007 Subaru WRX STI and scares me when i ride with him and she owns a 2007 Honda Accord. This not to discredit other posts but to show that everyone has a differant experience when driving the Corolla.

Corolla LE, 15,000 miles. Own it 13 months. Second round trip from NY to Southwest Florida. 1350 miles split 2 days. Car is all over the road. Too sensitive. Very tedious to hold car straight. I hope Toyota comes up with some sought of fix. Otherwise I'll be looking for something else. I bought Corolla specially for my long trips. Comfort and gas mileage sold me. It's a shame because I like the car. My daughter still owns my 94' Camry. Maybe Camry has a different EPS system.

The 07-09 Camry has hydraulic - I think the 2010 has EPS.

For 2009, the 4 cylinder does not have EPS, maybe the V6 does?

Sounds exactly like my experience. City driving no problem. 110 km/h and above the car wanders and I find myself correcting left/right/left constantly, like as if every day is a windy day. 2 dealers told me that I'm the first person ever to have any complaint about it. I'm going to have my dealer check alignment and road test it. Can't think of anything else to do.
On the brighter side.... Yesterday, 120 km highway run at 115 km/hr, nice warm 25 Celsius day, the dash readout says I averaged 5.5 l/100 km = 51 mpg Canadian = 43 mpg US!! Bought the car in January, was quite disappointed at mileage in the winter months. It would appear that this car likes to run hot and not too far above the speed limit.
#52 of 667 2010 EPS any better?

Any feedback on the 2010 Corolla EPS? Is it any better?

Haven't drove a 2010 yet but they gonna have a long way to go to beat the steering on the 2009 ! The ease of this steering is just so relaxing to drive. Hope they didn't change it for the worse.
