I get this in my Saturn SL1. It is most noticable for me when decelerating from 70+MPH down to 45MPH. Usually getting off the freeway. I've been told it's due to warped brake pads. It could be caused by a couple of different things. The brake rotors could be warped or worn down. The pads could be worn on one side or just need replacing. If there are rear drums, they may need to be turned or the shoes may need replacing.

What would cause a 2001 Bonneville to shake at 40 mph and quit at about 50mph it also shakes when braking. We have had it aligned twice.?

The braking problem is almost certainly a disk brake rotor. The vibration could be a faulty tire, a bent or damaged "half shaft" or an out of balance tire. Front end vibration is not caused by an alignment problem, but can be accentuated by worn suspension or steering components.

Why does a person weigh less on saturn?

A person would weigh more on Saturn than they do on Earth due to the lack of gravity on Saturn. This is true for every planet in the solar system. For example, on Saturn an adult weighing 150 pounds would weigh 159.63 pounds on Saturn.

Why does a car shake when braking?

This would normally be down to either: Warped Brake Discs (in some counties these are called Rotors) where there is a small ripple in the surface of the disc. This causes the brake pads (which are flat) to make intermittant contact with the surface which causes a vibration. This "warping" is not always visible to the naked eye. Worn or Perrished suspension compnents. This can lead to the wheels moving around in an unctrolled manner during braking which can also cause vibration.

Why is Saturn important to the solar system?

Well if Saturn did not exist then we , Earth would be either to hot or to cold, in result all plants and animal would die and their would be no life on earth.
