push hard on the brake pedal
Yes, unless the vehicle has functioning ABS (antilock brake system) brakes.
You may be hearing the ABS (Antilock Brake System) kicking in, this is normal.
Your brakes need bleeding. And if you have antilock brakes, you should take it to a shop to bleed them. It takes special tools to bleed antilock brakes. If you have regular brakes you can bleed them yourself. Could go into further detail but would take too long to explain. Refer to a repair manual. Note: bleeding antilock brakes without first disconnecting the sensor will damage the sensor and the antilock function will no longer work (learned the hard way, unfortunately).
You need new brakes!
Your vehicle is equipped with abs and anti lock brakes, when applied hard enough the system interprets it as a panic stop and pulses the brakes to prevent lock up and skidding.

If the car vibrates when the brakes are applied, it could be a sign that the brakes or rotors need to be checked or replaced. When a problem like this occurs, it is best to get it checked out as soon as possible to avoid worsening the problem.
