2014 Grand Cherokee Steering Wheel Vibration When Braking

As the title states my steering wheel has been shaking when braking.

I only have 12,700 miles. Can it be the rotors??

Sounds like warped rotors to me.

More than likely that's what it is. I just had the same thing happen at about 28,000 miles on my 2014 JGC and it was warped rotors. Dealer turned them down and it was fine, took about an hour.

I agree with the warped rotors. I jammed on my brakes once while in a curve and next time I braked, I felt it vibrating. I had the rotors turned and all was smooth again afterwards.

So they were warped rotors and they replaced them under warranty!

That's great news.

You're lucky... JGC brake rotors from 93-02 were notorious for warping. Not many replacements were covered under warranty, especially after 12K miles.
