Honda Accord Problem Report
Honda Accord Vibration, Roughness, and Rattle Due to Damaged Engine Mounts
Damaged engine mounts can lead to vibration and roughness felt in the steering wheel. A rattle in the dash and engine area may also be heard. Replacement of damaged mounts will commonly correct these issues.
Steering wheel vibrations when at idle but the vibrations gone once the car is moving. - Visitor
The front motor mount has broken 4 times while we've owned this 1997 Honda Accord (from ~90k to 140k miles). Last replacement was about 3 months ago at which time the driver's side motor mount was also replaced and the car was taken to a dealership for an inspection of all the motor mounts. The dealer reported all motor mounts and drive axles were ok at that time (as a side note, both drive axles were replaced due to worn CV joints just after the 2nd motor mount replacement). Despite all our previous efforts, upon inspection yesterday we found the front motor mount is broken again. Is there a design problem with the front motor mount on this model Accord or is this a symptom of something amiss with this car? - Visitor

broken motor mounts.. Honda did not replace under warranty so took to another mechanic and had it done cheaper. NOT happy that they would not take care of since it is a known problem - Visitor

Vibration from motor.problem is not fixed yet but investigating on this website for solution. - Visitor
Problem has probably been developing for a while (dash has had rattle and there has been a vibration- which I took the car in to correct- they didn't feel it- for a while) but diagnosed at 138,000 miles. Dealership wanted to replace 4 mounts at a cost of $1200.00 Trustworthy, talented, certified mechanic recommended by a friend found 2 mounts faulty, charged $356.00 to replace. I guess Honda has decided that their former good reputation is not worth keeping. Think I'm wrong? Search comsumer reviews 2015 CRV-very telling. - nomorehondas
