    After about 16K miles of driving, I found my Honda Pilot started to
    shake badly when I brake. Especially the steering wheel shake like
    crazy. The feeling is like some parts of the braking system need some
    lubricant. But I just did 15K mile maintenance!

    Did anybody felt the same thing? Should I just run to garage and check
    out the braking plates, etc.?

    Sounds to me like warped rotors. If that is the case, have them turned
    or have them replaced.

    Perhaps the guy that did the 15K didn't use a torque wrench on the lug nuts
    after the tire rotation. That can possibly cause warped rotors.

  4. Did it start right after the 15K mile service or has it been developing
    this for a while? First check your wheel nuts are all present and
    tightened properly, then wheels for damage and then brakes... which could
    have contaminated or warped rotors.

    Maybe you should be looking at a malfunction on the ABS. Just a thought.
