My car shimmies when I step on the brakes coming off the freeway. Do I need new brakes?

The front brake rotors are most likely warped. This is fairly common and a simple machining process will take care of that. That process is part of a normal brake job but that doesn't necessarily mean the brakes are worn out. Your mechanic will inspect the brake pads at the same time and make a recommendation.
