Accords are usually pretty tight on the highway so unless something has been damaged in an accident, I suspect you have a tire problem. First thing, make sure they're inflated correctly, then jack the front of the car up and just spin each wheel by hand to see if there is excessive run-out. Repeat for the back as well. A tire that wobbles may have a separated belt and would cause your problem.

If there is excessive slack in the steering gear box it can cause this as well. I've seen this a couple of times on brand new cars

2001 Dodge Ram1500, Quad Cab, 2WD with 139,000 kms. ONLY in a right hand turn and ONLY at highway speeds (100-120 kph) the front of the truck feels like it "moves" side to side, with no feedback through...


This could be an alignment problem in the front or rear or both. Have a 4 vwheel alignment done and the problem should end if the front and rear suspension checks out fine.

The front wheels feel wobbley. When I drive the front end seems like he wants to go in another direction that I am going. On the highway the cars pulls to the left and then from side to side. When hit 65...


Maybe the front end parts, like tie rod ends, lower ball joints, or the wheel bearings are worn out.

Take it to a garage to have the front end inspected.

Rear end unstable when weight is shifted to passenger side


You are going to have to get under there and give everything as good look. Check all bushings for wear and looseness, check springs to make sure they aren't broken and check struts for leakage. Struts are gas-charged and if one has leaked out usually there will be residual oil at the top where the shaft goes in. When checking suspension, check with wheels supported (on ramps) and check free (jack under chassis, wheels and axle hanging) Don't just look...try to move stuff to see if there is any play there.
Personally, I wouldn't drive it 'till it's fixed. In an emergency situation you will loose control if the back end isn't tracking correctly!
