Considering a CPO Pathfinder weird Carfax entries

I am looking at a CPO 2012 Nissan Pathfinder with 70,000 miles. No reported accident, single owner.

The Carfax report has something a bit peculiar.

04/05/2016 63,025 Tire Kingdom Sunrise, FL 954-845-9800 tirekingdom.com Alignment performed
Tire condition and pressure checked
Tire(s) replaced

05/10/2016 64,179 Tire Kingdom Davie, FL 654-370-1140 tirekingdom.com
Alignment performed Oil and filter changed

08/30/2016 69,574 Tire Kingdom Sunrise, FL 954-845-9800 tirekingdom.com Alignment performed
Tire condition and pressure checked

09/12/2016 70,112 Weston Nissan Volvo Davie, FL 954-888-6800 westonauto.com Vehicle offered for sale

From June to August three alignments were performed, then in September the car is sold to the dealer. Anything I should be concerned about? Anything I should look very closely when I test drive it?

I'd be concerned about 3 alignments in that short of a time frame! Modern day vehicles don't get the alignment knocked out as easy as they used to. My wife's car has 196k on it and has only been aligned once - tire wear is good/even and I have a 1/4 mile long gravel driveway. Unless I could verify why it had to be aligned 3 times and it won't need it again - I'd pass!!

Agreed! That car has a problem and no promise will fix it. It was in an accident that was not reported.
