This is normal. Infact, the juddering is to show that ABS is working in your car. This usually happens just before the sensor detects that your wheels are going to lockup and modulates the brake force applied so that you do not lose traction. You can confirm this by trying this in an secluded area by asking another person posted outside to visually look for wheel lock up.

Hi Vinay

DWind is right. There is nothing to worry. In fact you should worry if you don't feel the vibration in the circumstances you described and the ABS light comes up. That means a malfunctioning of the ABS system and should be attended to ASAP.

@Vinay: The juttering is because ABS is working properly and you need not worry about it. When the juttery thing is happening ensure that you are not lifting your feet off the brake pedal or not reducing the pressure you are applying, ABS would do the pump stop for you so that you can concentrate on turning the car from the obstacle.

Slightly OT:

One of my friends told me that ABS isn't really effective without rear disc brakes as well - and that's it's not really useful having ABS + front disc brakes only. Is this true?

the truth is that today's disc/drum setups are completely adequate for the majority of new cars. Remember that both disc and drum brake design has been vastly improved in the last 20 years. In fact, the current rear drum brake systems on today's cars would provide better stopping performance then the front disc setups of the '70s. And today's front disc brakes are truly exceptional in terms of stopping power. Combined with the fact that between 60 and 90 percent of a vehicle's stopping power comes from the front wheels, it's clear that a well-designed, modern drum brake is all that's required for most rear wheel brake duty.

Brakes: Drum vs. Disc

ABS is nothing but automatic pumping. Pumping much more efficiently than a human can do. My SX4 has front disc (ventilated) and rare drum brakes. The surer stopping even at high speeds is to be seen to be believed.

I am afraid your friend is wrong. :-)
