Q: Braking causes steering wheel to vibrate

asked by on

My steering vibrates when braking.

The front rotors are warped, most likely, but an inspection of your brakes and front suspension is a good idea to ensure that no other problems are present. You should have a thorough diagnostic inspection of the steering wheel vibration from a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic.
