WHEN I BRAKE THE CAR SEEMS FINE UNTIL IT GETS JUST ABOUT TO A STOP

2007 Mazda 5 • 99,000 miles

Then there is a sort of rat-a-tat until it is totally at a stop. It had the struts replaced about a year ago I believe

There Is Sort Of Rat A Tat -you need to describe this noise or whatever it is you're hearing

Rat-a-tat, like a tapping with a slight squeak. As soon as the car is at a stop it does not make the sound anymore. So it is like the final 3-5 seconds of braking

Check for a loose brake caliper.
