I drive my van with my family every day and at freeway speed. When I need to brake the van starts shaking and the pedal pulse is very scary. I took it to john Eagle in houston, and they told me the pads still had 60% life left. If I can live with this until the van gets repairs on all the brakes, or replace everything. But Honda does not have warranty on the brakes. The van is new, not safe, and without warranty.

When braking at 60 mph or higher, the front end of the vehicle shimmies. The steering wheel shakes violently in my hands. Once the speed is below 60 mph, the shimmy stops. I took it to mcgrath Honda in Chicago and after an inspection I was told the front brakes were new and that the rear brakes needed replacement. They said their mechanic thought the shake was being caused by the rear brakes!! I agreed to let them repair the rear brakes. The problem still exists.I may have purchased rear brakes needlessly! I have looked on the internet and found several complaints that are like mine. I have also read that some owner's had the rotors replaced and they still have the problem. I am wondering as to the number of similar complaints that will cause the NHTSA to investigate this problem.
