Vibrating Brakes

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man


Hi Bob,
I have a 2003 Saturn Vue that seems to vibrate when I apply the brakes (even at lower speeds, but more pronounced when stopping from higher speeds). I have had the brakes checked. They changed one set of brakes, but said the other set looked fine. Do you have any idea what makes the brakes vibrate the whole car?

Suzanne,
I would say that one or both of your rotor's are warped and either need to be machined or replaced.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
