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.

broken mount causes car to vibrate and rattle loudly during cold engine starts and when in reverse. honda sucks.
One or two of the 4 engine mounts on my car was damaged and had to be replaced within the past three years. I had the Honda dealership replace the mounts, fortunately it was covered under manufactures warranty under 100,000 miles.

When stopped at a stop light or stop sign, the car has been shaking noticeably. If I put it in Neutral, the shake immediately goes away. Was doing some research and believe it's related to one of the motor mounts. The problem started a couple years ago, but has been getting a little worse lately.

When the vehicle is first started in the morning or cool weather, it vibrates in reverse, less in neutral, and goes away in drive. My thought is the passenger side engine mount.

Same as others have reported here. Started making the rumbling noise and vibrations when initially putting the car into reverse. Now it is happening even when in drive. There should be a recall for this from Honda as many have reported this in multiple sites online.

vibration at start up and now getting worse. Noise seems mostly in front of motor but hard to distinguish which mount. Looks like one is or has leaked fluid. Last Honda, 2002, had same problem. Have had more problems with car including tire wear. First set lasted 20k. Rear control arms still seem to be a problem. Honda says get car aligned every 10k miles. Seems Hondas are getting worse instead of better. Always had at least one Honda in the family since early eighties. Thinking this might be the last. Honda service is always poor and always owner issues not their product. Improve customer service and quality or lose even more customers.
