Customer Question
My 2013 corolla steering...

My 2013 corolla steering is very sensitive to the touch and at highway speeds it requires constant tiny corrections to keep it going straight.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fluids?

Yes. It just came back from my mechanic's garage where they did the New York State inspection and he said he check everything he could concerning the steering problem but couldn't find anything.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Corolla yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. I'm not qualified to repair automobiles. I only asked the shop to check the problem and they said they couldn't find anything.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really. I was just wondering if this is a common problem that can be fixed.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Did this just happen out of the blue? or was there a certain event that may have caused this?
