car shakes when brakes are applied. is that rosters or pads? either way will need to get fixed

My car has 55000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Vibration and/or shaking on application of the brakes is often due to faulty rotors (warped, or irregularly worn). If the rotors are replaced, of course the brake pads will have to be replaced as well. The recommended services to request are rotor replacement and brake pad replacement. These services can be performed right at your location by a certified mechanic and at a time convenient for you.
