I think my rotor discs are warped..

Why : Steering Wheel shakes when braking from high speeds....

Although car doesn't veer to one side... the vibration is visible by naked eyes if i just brake from 100 kmph to 40 kmph at moderate intensity.


Ever happened to anyone else here?

Yes sounds like front rotors. If not too old, can probably have them machined rather than replaced. Much cheaper. I just had mine done a month ago.

Same happened to mine. When I braked, especially on the highway, the car shook a lot! My rotors were warped. I was still on all original front pads & rotors up until this past Friday. I just bought new rotors (it was not expensive at all) and new pads. Paid $125 for the parts, and swapped them all at home. Actually a really easy process on the Versa. The stock pads were not that bad, but figured we might as well change it all at one time (rotors & pads). So I went 5 years before changing anything ... Not too bad.

My friend says he see's the CV boot on my left tire vibrate at descent speeds.
he saw this from his car when we had a long cruise.

Is this normal? or can this have any relation to this steering vibration? or this is a completely different issue?

I've got the same problem. I'm at 37,000 miles. I figure it's pads & rotors as I had a similar problem on my Sienna. Replaced the rotors and pads (first time doing such by myself) and the problem disappeared - Sienna brakes much much better too.

So I think I'm going to do the Versa in the near future around 40,000 miles. I mostly do highway driving, with some stop and go traffic. But a particular stretch is through a winding ravine. And I figure my crazy driving through there help led to slightly earlier wear. But then again, many sites seem to say 40K-60K is normal time to change brakes.

get drilled or slotted rotors as they dissipate heat better especially on a car like our with front discs only were the front deos 75% of the breaking I would recommend slotted as drilled rotors have a tendency to crack
