Anyone else hear a thump when slowing down or coming to complete stop? Thump doesn't happen everytime but sounds louder sometimes and doesn't alway seem to be in the same area of the ceiling. STRANGE!?!?!?!

Any comments suggestions are welcome.

The acoustics in these cars can be a mite deceptive.

You might have a worn anti-sway bar link . . . . or a worn anti-sway bar bushing.

I recently had a knocking noise like what you describe, and it turned out to be that a spring on my parking brake shoes had rusted and the lining had worn off one of the shoes, leaving the shoe to bounce around inside the drum and make a clunking noise that seemed to be coming from inside the passenger compartment.

I've never had a C/V Joint go bad on this car, so I don't know for sure how that would be heard inside the vehicle; but it would relate to the drive train, like the noise you hear does.

Pretty sure that the car isn't haunted, heh ?
