2002 Ford Focus Q&A
2002 Ford Focus Question: Car sounds loud when braking
Road noise seems loud when driving and highway speed but, most especially when braking. - Visitor
You could have a wheel bearing or wheel bearings making noise; you could also have brake pad and/or rotor noise. Recommend a local shop help inspect it for you. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=45417&car_brand_names=Ford - DaveJHM
Warped front brake rotors may cause the steering wheel to shimmy when the brakes are applied. Our technicians tell us the brake rotors and pads should be replaced to correct this concern.
