I purchased a new 2023 Equinox, and the first time I drove it home, it made a loud knocking sound on the rocks on my dirt road. sounds like metal on metal knocks. I asked the dealer about it, and they had no idea about what it might be.

just when you hit bumps? maybe there's something loose up front. pop open the hood and give things a shimmy to see.

I did do that, when I got home, but couldn't see anything. I'm hoping they can find something, when it gets it's first service. I think it needs to be up on the rack, to see the tie rods and check for missing rubber bushings.

If the knocking sound is coming from just one side, it may be a strut. Push the strut's accordion style cover upward to see if the rubber (not sure what it's called) isolator has fallen down. Check both sides.
