I hear a low thumping sound coming from the front driver side of my car when braking. The sound is only audible when braking slowly (say, braking below 40 mph). Any thoughts?
Do you

I would suspect a brake rotor problem. My suggestion would be to replace the pads, rotors and the hardware or the calipers on this one, the caliper hardware is usually pretty rough
