Sometimes while driving my 2010 Chevrolet Malibu over 40mph and then breaking. The car rattles a little bit. Could this be due to cold weather?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Lavar, You may have uneven brake rotor wear, I suggest a brake inspection which may prove you need new brake pads and/or rotors turned or replaced.

Gail Dunn, Owner at Women's Automotive Connection Lavar, Not sure what you mean by rattle. Could be warped brake rotors if the car shudders when breaking. I would have them checked and see if they should be tended to.
