I am a proud owner of Steermatic as well.
I have this 2007 Model with me.
As far as the power, comfort and rest of the things are Corolla is no match at all to Steermatic.
I have touched 195KM on straight on M2 and kept it there for a while. the performance on the Express way Murree is too good. The only match is 1.8 Reborn but the class difference is tremendous.
The consumption of this car is tremendous and am pretty impressed with the mileage. I filled the car from Pindi from Total Pump opp. Askari 4 and then went to Muree, stayed there for 3 days, two trips to Bhurban and one the same tank I reach Sukheki on M2. Am leaving for the same trip again and this time I will come up with exact mileage.
The only thing which I changed in the car is the low profile tires and changed them to 195/65R15 and this is giving me little more comfort on the broken roads of Lahore and my village.
