Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. This thumping sound you are hearing is due to warped rotors. It could be in the front or the rear of the vehicle. If you are feeling it in the steering wheel, then the rotors in the front are warped and need to be replaced. If the you dont feel it in the steering wheel but feel it in the seat or the brake pedal, this could be coming from the rear rotors.
