    Dang my wife's car needs brakes BAD! We just got back from a week-long vacation, nearly 1,500 miles of driving, and every time I applied the brakes on the highway the steering wheel shaking was absolutely awful. We've had the car from 52K now up to 94K miles, and I've never done brakes on it yet.

    Oil starved during a sharp turn, likely had leaked some oil enough to blank the pickup.
    You can get 4 wheels rotor/pads from brake labs (Ebay store) for just over $100 (OEM style/spec) or drilled and slotted for around $180. I went to the d/s because every OEM or OEM style brake disc I've had on my cx5 ended up warped. And the fade sucks. Doesn't work with my driving style.

    Oh. That's why your CX-5 has one engine only... I was always curious...

    I'm turning very hard myself, but my engine is fine. It's kind of hard to believe, that from a hard turn the engine can get that bad. Maybe if you drive in a death cage ball.

    Surprised you have not even looked at the brakes yet if you have 94k miles. Of course they are acting like that.

    Why does everyone think I haven't inspected the brakes? Of course I've looked at them, several times since getting the car, and the pads appear to have life left in them. It's just been this past stint of road trip highway driving where they really started to vibrate pretty bad on the brake pedal. It's had a faint vibration for awhile and I just haven't gotten around to doing the work.

    Also it doesn't really vibrate at normal speeds around town. It's when braking from 70+ MPH that it vibrates pretty bad. And my wife pretty much never drives the car on the highway, like, ever.

    Or, perhaps his crankcase was very low on oil.

    That's what I was saying. Although it's not unheard of for a sharp turn (usually prolonged) to blank an oil pickup, likely the oil leak helped it happen during the sharp turn. Also the rpms were low (thus oil pressure/pump flow) when it happened

    Probably the rotors need turning vs. the pads not having any life in them.

    Brake deposits. Perhaps related to engine braking where pads aren't really biting into rotors but rather leave some glazing behind. Turning rotors or just buying new ones would do the trick.
