If your brake pedal is soft then you problem are very close what is called metal to metal on you'r pads. Either that or if you have rotors a common thing that will happen is that they may bet warped. Warped rotors is a condition in which the rotor glazes over and gets a shiny look to it. When this happens the brake pad will not catch the rotor as well and cause a vibration at brake. Try removing the tires and inspecting the brakes for any of those conditions. Honestly for the thumbing sound it may be a brake issue as well or a syspention part that is worn. Pep Boys does free brake inspections in most states, you can bring it over to them and have it tested for any of those conditions.

Hope this Helps!

2005 honda accord noise when breaking (transaxle)


You say you hear the noise when you "slow down". Does this mean you hear the thumping noise when you let off the gas and let the car coast to a stop or only when you are applying the brakes to decellerate?
If you only hear the noise while applying the brakes then I would assume it has something to do with your brakes. The first thing that comes to mind would be rotors that aren't true or warped which could make a thumping sound.

Do you feel any vibrations in your foot when it is applying pressure to the brake pedal? If you do feel a sort of pulsating feeling then it could very well be your brakes making the noise.

I hope I was of some assistance,
