    I own an accord lx 01 and have noticed
    that here in the atlanta burbs driving on
    I-985 north of atlanta, I notice the car
    move a bit side to side when it's driven
    over 60 mph.

    Now, I don't notice any pull when driving
    on I-85 North of atlanta. It may be the
    roads also.

    Is there a way to determine if it's an alignment
    problem or not? Or an inflation issue with
    the tires. All 4 tires are about a year and
    half old so fairly new.

    Sorry, if this is a dumb question, but I have experienced this sort of thing
    before. Do you notice very small grooves cut into the road? They will be
    with the flow of traffic. This will cause this. Same sort of thing when
    you go over a country-road bridge that is grating. The car just seems to
    get a little loose. Also do you know anyone else who drives on that road
    (or you in another vehicle) that can confirm the road unevenness. There are
    stretches of roads around here that make my vehicle go side to side,
    especially if the road is warped from heavy traffic.

    If it was anything besides the road, it would happen all the time.
