2009 Toyota COROLLA Steering Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID782886

 Model Year2009

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemInformation redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6) 2009 toyota corolla with 9500 miles, has steering issue at speeds over 60 mph. Steering goes soft and feels like driving a shopping cart with loss of stability, wandering in lane, and feeling of wind gusts around car when it is not a windy day. Experienced in prior months beginning november 2009, bought car new in july 2009, mostly city driving, though. Drove from va beach to dc on april 7, 2010, returned april 8, 2010. Routes driven were 64 and 95. Most of stability loss occurred on southbound 95 in heavy traffic. I am an experienced driver with no accidents of any kind in over 30 years. I have driven toots primarily. I am filing this to report the unsafe condition, but there was no accident. Since originally feeling the stability loss in november, 2009, i have tried to catalog the times the car's steering is amiss. Overwhelmingly, it occurs at speeds of 65-70 mph, and in order to control the wandering, i grip the wheel tightly, like i am driving a snowmobile down a bumpy hill. It is exhausting, and very, very distracting. Only in the heavy traffic on 95 recently, i felt very unsure of my ability to control the car. I plan to discuss all of this with the local toyota dealer. [xxx]
