If your car jerks while you are coming to a stop it might mean that your breaks ar getting weasted.

If your car is jerking when you come to a stop could mean you have warped brake rotors or a malfunctioning abs unit. It could be you're not taking it out of or to a low enough gear if the vehicle has a manual transmission. There could be a problem in your automatic transmission electronics system; especially a defective speed sensor.
