    I got to admit, my truck does this too. I noticed the first time I drove it but never really payed to much attention to it. I drive mostly city so it does not bother me but I guess if you drive mostly highway it can be annoying. I just figured it was due to the truck being light. :cool:

    I drive over 100 miles a day on the freeway, never noticed this with the Tacoma. My best friend used to have an 09 Corolla, and neither of us noticed a problem with the steering. Maybe it is just people driving tired or after drinking too much. Just my 2 cents!

    lol thats call a fallacy of hasty generalization, just because you didn't doesn't provide enough evidence to state that none have the problem.

    Your second statement could be classified as a Ad Hominem fallacy maybe even a False Alternative fallacy.

    As I said, I think the wandering is due to upcoming wind and the lightness of the vehicle / aerodynamics maybe?. I have experience it and I have the lightest model (Reg Cab 4-cyl). BTW I'm not saying everyone with my model will experience it, I'm just saying that I believe that is true that SOME people MIGHT experience it.

    BTW let me rewrite your argument:

    I have not experience this therefore its not true.
    Your car wanders therefore you are drunk.

    :facepalm:

    Two personal experiences does not represent statistical truth. Surely you know this...
