Why Does My Car Shake When Braking?

Hands on Steering Wheel

Many Fremont drivers ask the service team at Sid Dillon Mazda, “Why does my car shake when braking?” You might feel it in the steering wheel or brake pedal during your Omaha commute. If your car trembles when braking, there are several possible causes. Below, the service team at Sid Dillon Mazda provides three of the most common causes. If your car needs service, make a service appointment online or give us a call.


Possible Reasons Why a Car trembles When Braking

If you notice that your car is shaking when you apply the brakes, there are some common issues that could be causing it. Let’s take a look at those issues:

The Brake Rotors Are Warped

The most common reason for a shaking car is warped or damaged brake rotors. Your brake rotors work with your brake pads to stop your wheels from spinning when you come to a stop on Lincoln roads. As rotors age, they get thinner from normal wear and tear, making them more prone to damage. Excessive heat generated while braking can warp your rotors, causing the brakes pads to slip. This can create a quivering sensation, usually in the brake pedal or steering wheel.

Typically, you should replace your brake rotors by at least the first 70,000 miles, but you may need it done earlier depending on your driving habits and climate conditions in Blair.

The Tires Need Service

Another reason why your car trembles when braking could be because of your tires. If yourtires are out of alignment or need replacement, your suspension must work extra hard to keep them balanced. Hitting a pothole or curb may alter your alignment, and you will probably feel it in your steering wheel.

Tire alignment is usually done during tire rotation, which should be performed about every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.It’s always a good idea tocheck your owner’s manual for specific tire service interval recommendations for your make and model.

Steering & Suspension Issues

If there is a problem with your steering or suspension systems, your car may tremble when braking and sometimes during regular driving. Still, there are times when a damaged part, like an axle shaft, can cause shaking when coming to a full stop.

When you bring your Mazda into Sid Dillon Mazda for an oil change or tire rotations, it’s wise to request a general vehicle inspection while you’re here. Our Certified Mazda Technicians will check all of your vehicle’s vital systems, like the steering and suspension.
