Australia doesn't exactly follow the "model year" premise of the US (neither does most of the world). We'll have build year, but generally will just fall in to "pre-facelift' or "facelift" categories for any given generation (or maybe Series 1/2/3 etc)By October all car mfgrs have switched over to the next model year.
Yeah, haven’t seen a right hand drive one before. But it’s still electric power steering. It’s not a electric hydraulic power steering some people might think. There is a electric motor under the dash that helps with assisting. The rack itself has no traditional hydraulic lines. Pretty much a manual rack.
My 9th gen facelift model was made late 2004 right before facelift release in 2005.
2008 is the transitioning year from 9th to 10th gen.

Looks like an admin has already moved this to the 10th Gen section for youPerhaps it’s a question for the 10th gen section
09 Corolla was released earlier in the year. Bought mine in July 2008. When in doubt check the VIN.By October all car mfgrs have switched over to the next model year.
no service needed, most complains are about steering wheel feel or lack thereofOk, thanks heaps guys.
Are these electric power steering’s reliable and/or needing service?

If it fails and you need to replace , it is very costly.no service needed, most complains are about steering wheel feel or lack thereof
reliability is equal or better than hydraulics since it has fewer parts, and if it fails there's no fluid mess and no chance of a belt jamming up other components or something like that, worst case you might get a blown fuse
