Question noise from front left underneath

I keep hearing a noise (as if something is loose) from the front left side (underneath) of my Atlas. More noisy while moving over humps. I also hear a screeching noise while driving over humps and I guess that's from the shock absorber. What could be the reason? I'm yet to visit the dealer.

Don't know for certain if this is your problem, but others have found there to be issues with the front struts. Upon taking their vehicle back to the dealer, they found a defective assembly and had it replaced. Most found the noise to disappear after this repair, so I would schedule a time to have it looked at. You can have a look at similar reports of this issue from other threads.

Common issue but fortunately it seems owner experiencing it are not having problems getting it resolved at their local dealer.
Still unfortunate because we're likely to see a drop in resale value.

Any update on this and whether or not your dealer was able to identify the problem? Seems like the suspension in the Atlas is a weak point, probably due to the fact that many of its components have been outsourced to other companies.
