Default I just purchased a 1999 Honda Accord. Should I be worried about anything?

I would like to know about repair history, what I should get checked out, etc. The steering wheel shakes at 60 mph...what does this mean?I checked it out on CarFax, and nothing was ever reported wrong with it. I will get the alignment checked out, but I hear that the transmission isn't the best on this car after 100,000 miles? Mine has 94,000 on it currently.

check carfax, although it's probably too late now....if the steering shakes at 60 mph, check the alignment of the wheels, tire wear and linkage. Sounds like you got more than you bargained for.Good luck.

Huh Yeah! Did you run a "Car Fax" report? This is critical. Check it out on the web, it's free for a basic history check.

It means that the car is unbalanced or need alignment for frontal wheels... Check also the actual conditions of each wheel, maybe they show deformations. If this problem persists, check with an specialist and replace...

You need a wheel alignment. Honda's and Toyota's are the most stolen vehicles, prevent theft. You can check out CarFax for a record on the car; accidents, etc.

Have the tires checked for wear patterns. Replace as needed. Be sure to align and balance the front end. Rarely balancing back tires is needed but it's a good idea for race cars or high speeds. It will cost about $80 to balance all four and align the tires with rotation, the proper tire pressure adjustment all around. Check tire pressure weekly, wear patterns monthly and rotate tires as recommended by the tire service company. Always match the same make and size of all four tires. Don't let them sell you off brands.
