Q:

steering wheel vibration on 2008 Toyota Camry

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
when I apply brake at the higher speed (50 mph +) the steering wheel vibrates. The car has only 29K miles. Is this a sign of worn out rotors?

it's a sign of rotor runout, also called warped rotors, it's fairly common, you can have a shop turn the rotors, or personally i replace them. newer cars tend to have smaller and thinner rotors and turning, in my opinion, doesn't work so well, if they warped once they will warp again, i would replace.
i recommend replacement of the pads at the same time. no reason to use old pads on new rotors, the new pads will break in to the new rotors and wall will be good again.
