1997 Chevy Cavalier
When stopping at slow speeds, sometimes, the brake pedal is hard and the car jerks a bit, sometimes you get the feeling the car wants to die, but never has yet. This is quite frightening as there is the danger of hitting vehicles in front of you. ABS light never has come on, and therefore there are no error codes. The brakes have been replaced once and the pads on these brakes have been replaced once since purchase (I got lifetime warranty on brakes at time of brake purchase). I can't recall if rotors have ever been replaced or not. Although this is an irregular symptom it's becoming more regular. This problem has never occurred with stopping at higher speeds, but then again I've yet to need to. I maintain this car well with regular oil changes etc.
Upon leaving department store lot you must stop at a stop light if necessary, speed of car is very slow, and the brakes might feel hard, as in you cant put much pressure on them, and it jerks a bit, as in it's not truley stopping quickly enough. The danger is that you risk hitting the car in front of you. When this happens, and I am almost use to it, I push hard as I can on the brake pedal, and so far no wreck.
have the same problem?
