Volvo XC60 Steering/Suspension Knocking Noise When Accelerating Only (NOT Turning)
I drive a 2014 Volvo XC60 T6. While driving the other day, I noticed a knocking noise and vibration in the steering column when accelerating from a stop. The sound doesn't seem to be linked to turning the steering wheel. But instead, the stopping and going of the car. If I come to *super* gentle stop, there is no noise when I accelerate. Otherwise, it makes three knocking sounds that I can feel in the steering wheel and goes away. The model is known for front struts mounts, but I'm worried it's a steering gear assembly. I drove down a steep hill the other day, and it felt like a boat on the ocean. I work on a construction site, and the suspension makes no noise (squeak, knock, rub, etc.) on our bumpy gravel road.
