Warped disk is the problem i found this to be true with my galant since cheanging the disc and pads it is smooth and breaks are how they should be ,so anyone who is finding this juddering problem please check your disk and disks are not as expensive as you think and quite easy to change as im no mechanic but i achieved this with a good manual and the right tools .

Possibly it could be an alighnment issue..when was the last time you had an alighnment? thats something to think about. your wheels/tires could have have too much road force which might affect that. Or maybe somethng in your steering colomn itself.. have you been in or known of your vehicle being in an accident recently? those are just some ideas hope that may help

When I am driving along the car seems to judder mainley n on flat road when I accelerate it go.s o-k again

It depends what you mean by judder and where it comes from. If the judder comes through the steering column it could be worn or badly adjusted wheel bearings. Get it checked out by a garage or a tyre fitting shop as soon as possible.

Juddering after changing front tyres and pads

If you just changed the brake pads with out machining the disc rotors then that will give you a problem straight up especially if the rotors were damaged from the pads worn down too far. There is a way of putting on new tyres and if not fitted correctly you may get a problem there as well. Check the mould line on the side of the tyre that is almost at the rim and see if it is the same distance from the rim all the way around on both sides . This will show if the tyres have been fitted correctly

It seems like your brake rotors are warped, remove them and have them turned or replace them with new rotors and pads.

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:

Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.

2001 Hyundai santa fe. 2 weeks ago clutch judder started,

this indicates a damaged clutch disk and pressure plate, however the transmission has come down to determine the damage, 1 you will need a clutc assembly 2 the flywheel will either need to be resurfaced or my best suggestion is to replace it since it is over heated just like a bad brake rotor when the flywheel is over heated it is worped and causes the judder!!
