Question about 2000 Isuzu Trooper
What can cause my vehicle to shake/shudder when the brakes are applied? The higher the speed at braking the more violent the shake/shudder and the lower the speed at braking the less violent shake/shudder. All runs smooth other than at 65 miles per hour it gets a bit of a steering wheel shake (very light), which I take to be a high-speed balance issue as it stops when under 65 mph. I just bought the vehicle from an open to the public Auction that had a window tag stating that all new brakes had been put in. I am having this checked out this week to see if they are new or only front or back are new and or if the rotors are warped, etc. Can you let me know what to expect and or what I need to be aware of regarding this problem and is it a safety issue if I still drive before the fix? Do you know what may be causing this (shake/shudder) to happen? Thank you so much for your time and help in this problem. Have a great day/night!
I just changed the brake pads and rotors on my father's 2001 Trooper that he recently purchased because they were shaking just like your were. He bought it from a mechanic shop and they had put new pads on it but it needed new rotors as well. If there is noticable groving on the rotors and new pads are installed it can create shaking, sometimes severe, when the brakes are applied. It sounds like this is what has happened with your vehicle as well. That being said, I don't consider it a huge safety issue to drive it until you get it fixed, just know that your braking will not be optimal and that it will take you longer to stop than if the brakes were working properly. All that being said, get them fixed ASAP so you don't have to worry about it. Who wants to mess with safety right? Good luck, hope this helps!
