    Steering Drifts in Windy Conditions

    Nope, you got the right car -- most/all 2011 Corollas dance around in the wind. Mine does, everyones' does, though there are those who will deny it.

    Steering Drifts in Windy Conditions

    From what I know about steering fixtures, I doubt that a brace would fix that "loose steering" situation. I believe those are two, not-directly-related, mechanisms. But others may disagree. Hope they chime in.

    Steering Drifts in Windy Conditions

    I had the same problem about drifting from day 1. It's not THAT bad, but definitely noticeable, and as yours, my car drives straight and true otherwise. All these comments about tires and alignment are off the mark. They're not seeing the question!!! I suppose I'll just live with it, as you...

    Changing the Oil Filter -- 2011 Corolla 1.8 L

    This may be an old subject, but new to me! I've read all the supposed horror stories about changing the filter element in the cannister-type oil filter assembly. Is it really that tough?? Do I simply need to buy a removal device to unscrew the filter cap, then simply remove and replace the...
