Default brake pedal judder

i have noticed recently occasionally usually after driving over a bump in the road when i next apply the brakes i can feel a juddering through the brake pedal and i can hear the brakes going on and off almost as if the ABS has kicked in but there is no ABS light on the dash board if i slow the car down to less than 10 mph and apply the brakes they are ok again car is a 2001 touring

Dave,

It sounds like you have a warped rotor (maybe two). There are a few shops out there that will check your brakes for free so I suggest you get-er-done.

Possibly, but that's my guess. Either way, you need to have the brakes checked out or do it yourself by taking the wheels off and giving them a good inspection to see what's wrong.
