    just got a 95 ex, was in a front end accident but all was repaired by body shop, to set up and pull the frame cost $280 so i don't think it was that bad, they worked around the passanger box, when steeering wheel is center it pulls to the right, if you move the steering to the left a little the wheels straighten out and it goes straight. do you think it's an alignment thing or the frame wasn't repaired correctly??? if it wasn't repaired correctly is it fixable???

    Well, its a unibody car, so there is no "frame" so to speak.

    And when they get tweaked, its incredibly hard to fix them properly. Alot of shops will bend em back into shape on a frame rack and call it a day. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    Have the alignment done first, you'll only be out ~$60. Tell the alignment guy about the damage and ask him to check it out. He'll be able to tell you for sure if the body is still out of shape..

    I've seen it go both ways though.
