I have a 2005 Mitsubishi endeavor. When I try to slow down my vehicle by slowly pressing the brake pad, I hear this thumping noise. almost rhythmic.
Brought it to my mechanic, he looked at my rotors and told me the rotors are rusted which is normal he said (??). He said the brake pads are still good. No point in changing the rotors now. Advised me to change the rotors LATER when I replace the brake pads.
Basically he said, the sound is normal, nothing to be alarmed about.
Here’s a video of the thumping noise
Just wanted to get a second opinion on this.
