Well, just because the rotors are new doesn't mean they are nor warped, do you feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in your seat? The other thing about Intrepeds is the inner TIE ROD ENDS very common, While your there check lower ball joints and outer Tie Rod Ends, have someone look at the tie rod ends located behind the engine while someone turns the steering wheel left and right in short quick strokes if you see loosness there you have to fix that problem.
If you feel the virbration in your seat the rear rotors are your culprit also make sure whoever does the brakes to clean and service the caliper guide pins make sure they are clean and lubed with lilicone grease made for that porpous and grease all points where the pads ride on the mounts.
Please contact me if you need more help and would you please leave me a favorable rating? Thank you, Randy

Why does my 1999 chevy s10 4 cyl. pickup shake between the speeds of 38 mph and 43 mph

Hey Robert... its only shakes between 38 and 43 mph... hhmmmm.. does it shake more or less when you apply the brakes.. thinking the rotors might need turning.. this is not uncommon for older trucks.. if you get them turned, get new pads,, this is not a hard job... just time consuming and you need a second vehicle..(or friend) so you can take the rotors to your local auto shop to get turned... I use Oreilly's..get their lifetime pads and they usually turn the rotors for free...(sometimes)... bug/talk to the manager... -- repack the wheel bearings while you are in there...they have to come off to get the rotors off..

2004 Jetta sedan, 1.8 TDI, about 38000 miles, manual transmission. Always use premium gas (91 octane or above) from name-brand stations. Last serviced in Oct 2010 -- oil change, new tires, new brakes...

You use premium gas in a TDI? Run that by me again? A TDI is a diesel engine car. What don't I understand here? I'm not being a smart __s but this just does not make sense. If you have put gasoline in a TDI, DO NOT DRIVE IT. Tow it to a dealer.

Brakes all 4 lock up steering wheel shakes above

OK, when the ABS module is unplugged, the same results. That tells me that the ABS system is not working properly.
Did they look into the master cylinder and other abs related components?
Any ABS codes on it?

If steering wheel shakes above 50 mph that's likely to be the tires on it, rather than a brake problem.

Have tires balanced and rotated and inspected for out of roundness that might cause vibration above 50 mph.

Thanks for your answer. I am wondering though. If my car was shuddering prior to my replacing the pads and rotors and the shuddering occured only when applying the brakes and usually happened when I braked...

Take a look at all the rotors now since you have replaced them. If you notice any unusal wear on one or more rotors, then i would say either the rotor is defective or the brake caliper is at fault. Even with new rotors it does not mean that they are perfect. They may be out of round or they was cut wrong. The problem would even get worse with a caliper piston trying to stick from time to time. Take a little time and inspect each roter inside and out for any kind of unusal wear. Hope this will help you.
