I have owned my 2009 Toyota Corolla LE since May 2008. I purchased it right after they became available at my local dealership, and traded my 2004 Corolla, which I loved. I fell in love with the redesigned body style of the 2009 model, but that's where the love ends! The biggest complaint I, and many other owners that I have talked to, have with the 2009 Corolla is the Electric Power Steering. I cannot, for the life of me, keep the car in a straight line when traveling over 50mph. I think that it is a design flaw that should get looked into. Other than that rather annoying and potentially unsafe aspect, the build quality is comparable with the 2004 model. Gas mileage is about 35mpg.
XM Radio inside the dash, Aux input for iPods, good gas mileage.
Improve or redesign the Electric Power Steering so the car travels somewhat in a straight line on the highway and as the steering is not so over- sensitive, better quality interior fabrics, move the clock to the radio, tilt the front seat headrests back a little bit.
