Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2010 Toyota Corolla S drifts to the left and right at speeds above 40 mph making car require constant adjustment to stay in lane. Longer trips are exhausting as the car has to be actively steered at all times to keep from wandering out of the lane. Steering feels loose and wheel needs to be turned more than 1/6 of a turn to correct vehicle.

The contact owns a 2010 Toyota Corolla. When driving the vehicle drifts to the right and left side of the road. He stated that the vehicle has electronic power steering therefore it is a fabric defect. He will take the vehicle to the dealer, and demand a buy back. The failure mileage was 160. The current mileage was 800. The vehicle identification number was unavailable.

I have a 2010 Corolla which I bought just a few weeks ago and I have been having problems with the steering from the start. When you are at freeway speeds it does not kept a straight line, it wanders to left and the right needing correction all of the time. It is very tiring and seems very dangerous. It talked to the dealer and Toyota to report the problem, they said it is a normal driving condition at this time, not sure what this means. I hope they fix this soon or I hope to sell it back to Toyota. I am very disappointed that is was not addressed in the 2009 model.

I've driven this 2010 Toyota Corolla for less than 500 miles and I started to noticed that it's very hard to keep the car from veering or drifting to the left. Drifting is more noticeable when car reaches a speed of 40mph or more. I took it to the dealer for service and according to the dealer the car is aligned to specification by Toyota. I hope this car eps (electric power steering) get recall soon before it causes accidents across the nation.

2010 Corolla S with electronic power steering (eps). Vehicle is unstable at freeway speeds. Wanders and drifts. Needs to be "actively driven" in order to track straight. Very tiring on long drives. Does not instill confidence that vehicle could be controlled during an emergency swerve.
