I drive a 2007 Honda Accord. When I press my brakes the car shutters, even when going super slow. I've changed the pads, rotors and even had the fluid checked. What is going on??

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Jack, You may have rear drums that need turned if you haven't already. At times, you will feel a shudder or slight vibration when braking because they have worn grooves in the drums.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive The car shuttering when braking is usually from a warped or distorted rotor. It can also be caused from a wheel bearing that is severely out of round. I have seen on some cars if the pads/rotors are replaced with aftermarket parts that do not meet manufacturer specifications even though they may appear the same. The easiest way to determine what the issue is would be to measure (or have a shop measure) the runout of the rotor and the runout on the hub using a dial indicator..
