Car Shaking When Braking? 90km/hr is the Telltale Sign!

Has your car ever vibrated or shaken when you applied the brakes, especially at speeds of about ninety kilometers per hour? This could indicate a major problem rather than just being an irritating experience!

These are a few typical culprits:

Warped brake rotors

When you press the brakes, your car may shake, most likely due to warped rotors or disc, which are uneven. Wear and tear, faulty installation, or overheating are some of the possible causes.

Faulty brake pads

Shaking may also result from brake pads that are unevenly or badly worn.

Wheel bearing problems

Vibration that intensifies when braking may be the result of a damaged wheel bearing.

Suspension issues

Specifically at faster speeds, worn-out or loose suspension parts can also cause shaking.

How to handle a shaking vehicle when braking

Don’t ignore it!

It’s critical to have a shaking car looked out as soon as possible as it may pose a safety risk.

Take it to a trusted mechanic

They are able to identify the issue and suggest the best course of action.

Consider replacing brake pads and rotors

Replacing your brake pads and rotors can often enhance braking performance and lower the likelihood of future problems, even if they aren’t the cause of the issue.

Preventing future brake troubles:

Regular maintenance

Have your brakes inspected routinely by a mechanic.

Avoid harsh braking

Brake gradually and prevent rapid stops wherever possible.

Properly maintain your car’s suspension

Get any suspension issues addressed swiftly.
