All depends on how the roters look need turning or not, or can be. Bad tires? greg

A good thing to do on brakes is go to a place that does brake repair. The big names will do a FREE inspection and tell you what is going on. It is 'safe' to do so. They usually won't do any work until authorized to. One exception is some places will tell you they are worn illegally and must be fixed (Les Schwab in the NW does this). Most don't, but remind them they are not law enforcement and tell them you'll do the job. Anyway--Sears, Firestone, Goodwrench, etc. will all give a free inspection and recc. what needs done. Sometimes you can just turn the rotors w/o new ones.

Why does car shake when applying brakes?

If the steering wheel shakes, but to car doesn't, when applying brakes - your front rotors are warped (if you have disc brakes)...if you have drum brakes, the drum could be cracked or the pads worn unevenly If the whole car shakes, and the steering wheel only seems to react to that, when applying brakes - see above statement, but apply to the rear end. If the whole car shakes, including the steering wheel - all four corners are bad, and you're an accident looking for a place to happen soon. In any case, go to your nearest service center ASAP.

I have a 04 Mercedes C230 Kompressor Sport Sedan When I step on my brake my car shakes especially when I'm in sport mode And also the brakes sometimes squeaks too when I step on them?

If the car shakes when you press on the brakes, you probably have warpped brake rotors, and the squeak is probably some worn out front brake pads. I would have your rotors checked and either replaced (which Mercedes highly recommends or re-surfaced)

Car shakes when you put on brakes?

Your car shakes some times when slowing down?

If you mean that the brakes "pulsate" when you apply light to moderate pressure... that's caused by a warped rotor. If a rotor overheats it will warp causing disk brake "chatter". Sometimes the rotors can be turned to make them "true" again, but often you need to replace the rotors. I generally do both front rotors at the same time so that there is no difference between the left and right brakes.

You need to check your brakes and rotors. Typically when the rotors go out it will make any car/ truck do that.

Why is your car feels like its jumping when its stop?

When applying the brakes; if you feel the car jumping it's usually the brake rotors need "turned". And, all depending on the age of the rotors and how much your OLD brake pads have scraped them, you might need to buy new rotors. So, my answer is TURN or REPLACE brake rotors. <end>

What would warped brake rotors cause a car to do?

In general, warped brake rotors will cause a vehicle to shake when the brakes are applied. If the problem is severe, it will also have some impact on the ability of the driver to control the car when braking. If a car shudders or shakes when the brakes are applied but is otherwise smooth when driven, the brakes are a most logical cause.
