My car jumps when I'm holding the brakes down

Asked by Jul 30, 2013 at 11:05 AM about the 1997 Pontiac Bonneville 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

75

Usually this has to do with 1 of two possible issues. Either your rotors are warped creating a pulse when you step on the brake or your alignment is of causing the same problem. If its the alignment a good way to test is let go of the wheel for just a second while on an open straight road does your vehicle Veer to one way or the other?
