My car is shaking when I brake. Why?

Why does my car shake when I brake?

If your car starts shaking when you brake, it could be a sign of brake problems. There are several things that can cause this issue, and it's important to have your brakes checked out as soon as possible if you're experiencing this problem. In this blog post, we will discuss the different causes of car shaking and what you can do to fix them.

When a car is shaking when braking, it's typically caused by one of three things: worn-out pads, warped rotors, or misaligned wheels. Worn-out pads are the most common issue, as they can cause excessive vibration when applied. Warped rotors are another common issue that causes shaking, and this occurs when the rotors become uneven due to excessive heat and wear. Lastly, misaligned wheels can also cause cars to shake when braking, as they can cause the brakes to be applied unevenly or sporadically.

The best way to address these issues is by having a professional inspect your brakes. They can check for worn-out brake pads, warped rotors, or misaligned wheels. Once they have identified the problem, they can recommend the appropriate fix. In some cases, this may mean replacing the brake pads or rotors; in others, it may simply mean realigning the wheels.

By addressing any issues with your brakes as soon as possible, you can help ensure that your car remains safe and reliable. If you're noticing a shake when braking, be sure to have your car inspected as soon as possible so that the issue can be addressed before it becomes more serious.

Remember, your safety is the most important thing. Don't take chances with your brakes - have them checked out if you notice any shaking or vibrations when braking.
