Default 2006 Honda accord, rotors and problems?

I need some questions answered and would be much appreciated. I have a honda accord (2006). It has about 72,000 miles. I keep my car in excellent condition, but there always seems to be a new problem. I have been in an accident once so that could be part of it, but ANYWAY...

When im usually driving at low speeds (40 mph or so, or less) and i go to break or atleast take my foot off the gas pedal, the car shakes a little , and when driving at those speeds the wheel vibrates a little bit too. I was reading about this and it seems to be a problem with rotors? im trying to figure out if that is the case. The second problem I have is that i recently replaced the battery, but now when putting the keys in the ignition and turning on the car it seems to be a little delayed when turning on as well as a little loud (sounds kind of strange). Any idea what these problems could be caused by? Im taking a 400 mile roundtrip soon and I don't want my car to break down or anything, so I was wondering if you think it will be okay to drive?

It's not the rotors. You wouldn't feel the rotors until you actually stepped on the break pedals.

It could be the CV joints, or could also be a motor mount, & it could also be it wasn't repaired correctly after the accident.

It should be checked by a professional shop. You can check the CV joints by turning circles as tight as the car will turn in both directions, & if you hear a clicking noise, it's definitely the CV joints.

But I would get it checked, considering you are leaving on a trip soon.

Hope this helps.

well your rotors may have exsesive runout on them, if when you apply your brakes and you feel a rough vibration through out the car at those lower speeds, but not if you take your foot off the gas. if your not a mechanic i would bring it in and explain the problem. now with the battery and starter, you need to define "strange" like does it sound high pitch, low pitch, on initial start up or while the engine is overrunning the starter? cant say for sure without examining car but i would think there is extra resistance in the pull in windings this is why it couldnt build up the magnetic force right away to pull on the fork and engage starter with flywheel/flexplate, this however shouldn't create a wierd sound.

cv joints would be more noticable under acceleration, and by turning tight you would be checking the outer joints, however you should bring it in to a technician to have it properly inspected and diagnoised.
