Car vibrates when braking


Asked by Apr 03, 2016 at 03:21 PM about the 2003 Toyota Highlander Base V6 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What could it be that makes my car vibrate
when braking at higher speeds.

2 Answers


Warped brake rotors, so they either need replaced to machined, as these are usually so thin that if they can be machined they warp in a very short period of time, so I would recommend replacing them with new ones.

Ok thanks
