What does it mean if my ABS brakes are shuddering?

If your vehicle is utilising the ABS with increasing frequency and your driving style is unchanged, it may be cause for concern. Checking your tyre condition for wear is important as low tread or old and hard tyres do have less grip. Alternatively, poor brake fluid condition can cause such issues. We recommend you have your vehicle checked. RAC members are entitled to a 30-minute fault diagnosis at one of our nine auto services centres.
