Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When i go to stop at 50-60 mph the brakes act like they are going to stop, but
then i start sliding and i feel something something under my feet bumping the
bottomside of the car. I havent experienced this going at a slower speed. It
stops just fine. do i need brakes or what? Had it for 3 years just started doing

What kind of a question is that? Do you need brakes, of course you need brakes. And how are you sliding when you hit the brakes, are you in snow? I think you need some driving tips. But all that aside, it sounds like your making the ABS system kick in. This is normal.


That bumping feeling is the ABS and is normal.
