#1 of 3 2000 sienna - vibration during breaking at highway speeds
Feb 23, 2009 (10:08 pm)
Hi guys and girls,
I own a 2000 sienna and for a while now I can feel a vibration when breaking during highway driving. I took the van to local Firestone shop and they checked everything and told me it's fine. Then I took it to Just Breaks shop, but they found a leak in rear driver-side breaks, fixed it, then I took it back in 2 month and there were leak at the rear pass-side wheel break, they fixed again, then in another 2 month it was leaking in rear driver-side again. They told me it's just a defective part and replaced it again, but vibration is still there.
Any help/advice is greatly appreciated!

If the vibration is constant or more pronounced at a certain speed it will be wheel/tire balance. If is comes an goes on its own as you drive at a constant speed, it will probably be a suspension component needing replacement. If it only occurs when braking, it is probably a warped rotor.

Thanks for the reply and sorry for late thanks
It turned out to be worn out rotors, once replaced along with new ceramic pads - no vibration and life is back to normal!
Have a nice weekend!
