Does the car rattle or does it just shake? Can you feel it thru the brake peddle when you apply the brakes? If it is a shake and you can feel it thru the brake pedal I would say that the rotors are warped and its time to have the brakes serviced. If it is a rattle then its possible that the brake hardware in the caliper mount needs to be replaced or possible a peice of debris from the road has gotten caught in the brake system
