Why Does My Car Shake When Braking?

Mechanic Working On Brakes

 

If your car trembles when braking around Jackson, there are several possible reasons. You might feel it in the steering wheel or the brake pedal, but either way, your car needs service. So, if you want to know the answer to “Why does my car shake when braking?”, then read on to find out some of the possibilities, and contact us at Mazda of Jackson to schedule service today.

Warped Brake Rotors

The most common reason for a shaking car when braking on Madison streets is damaged or warped brake rotors. Your brake rotors work with the brake pads to stop your wheels from spinning when you come to a stop around Ridgeland. As the rotors age, they get thinner, which makes them prone to damage. Excessive heat resulting from all that braking can warp the rotors and create a quivering sensation.

Your Tires Need Service

Another reason a car trembles when braking is often an issue with the tires. You may need a tire alignment. Hitting a pothole or driving over a curb in Brandon could alter your alignment and cause your car to shake when you brake. Tire alignment is usually done during tire rotation, about every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.Check your car’s owner’s manual for the recommended tire service intervals.

Steering & Suspension Issues 

If you have an issue with your steering or suspension systems, you may feel shaking when braking or during regular driving. Request a general vehicle inspection when you take your vehicle in for an oil change or tire rotations. Your car’s vital systems, such as steering and suspension, will be checked during the inspection.

Remember, there are many reasons why a car trembles when braking, so have your car checked by a certified Mazda technician to find the exact problem. Your brakes are essential to your safety, so if you suspect a problem, don’t delay. Schedule service at Mazda of Jackson right away.
