Q: Car shakes when brakes applied

asked by on

My car shakes when I press the brake pedal.

The shaking when the brake pedal is pressed is most likely caused by your brake rotors; you may need to have them replaced, as well as your brake pads. I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come out to the location of your vehicle to diagnose the cause of your car shaking while braking, and find the best solution.
