The gear position sensor on the transmission may fail, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and/or a no start condition.

Vibration from rear brake rotors are common

The symptoms often occur when the brakes are used heavily from repeated braking, braking from high speeds, and braking while going downhill. The entire vehicle can vibrate and shudder, like it is being driven over train tracks.
