I have Recently got a mk1 kuga off my parents and when i Brake the steering wheel shakes like mad, i then thought warped discs or stick pistons, i then asked the parents has it always done this and they said yes and they have also put new brakes on it not so long ago so that threw me off a little, it has also passed mots with it being like this, anyone have any ideas or has had the same problem?
Its 2010 2wd tdi

Shouldn’t be any vibration at all, I would get the suspension n steering linkages checked asap

If it's only shaking under braking conditions I would deffoe have another look at the disc (warped), mine from dealer had a slight issue with shaking on braking and they said the disc were all good.
I took a mechanic (not a technician) out for a ride and under braking showed him the fault, following week they fitted NEW disc and pads under warranty.
But as phoneman has said it could also be steering problem making it shake.
Tyre pressure should be checked and also tyre balancing could be a potential problem shake?

Many years age my vauxhall had the same problem. 3 sets of discs later and still the same. It was the rear discs that was the problem, resonating from the back too the front making it look and feel like it was from the front of the car. Not saying this is the case, but have an open mind.

If you're wheel is vibrating under braking, It'll be a warped disk. If the wheel vibrates during driving, its most likely a wheel balance / alloy dented or something similar.
if you need a set of front disks, check on here DISKS
