Bought this car about a month ago. Last week had it in to fix the brake line on same side the thumping is coming from which is the rear right hand side. Noise started out soft but gets louder and louder. Their is no vibration at all in the car. Could mechanics caused this somehow or do you think it is something else? Thank You

Pretty hard to see it over a computer, but you know a wobbling tire is a serious issue. First look at the wheel to see if that is wobbling too. If it is, the lug nuts are loose or there's a problem with the wheel bearings. If the tire looks like it has a tumor when you spin it, it likely has a broken belt. The guys at a tire and alignment shop can identify that.
