is this normal for only 53,000 miles to have worn engine mounts? on 2007 Honda Civic

examined by Honda dealer in Reynoldsburg Ohio one year ago for same noise and found no reason for rattling/grinding sound...and now 1 year later mounts are worn...hefty repair bill...never had this problem in any other car, especially Hondas!!

we trusted our Honda dealer...had it fixed and now runs quiet as a cloud! no rattling/shaking or noise at all.

I would get a second opinion as recommended. Unfortunately , from what I've seen , the mount on the fender is the most common that I've seen on that model , and as you've said , I also think the milage is to low. How long they last can sometimes be dependant on how it's driven , but in this case I'd be more inclined to say design flaw(or quality control-your choice).

thanks...but too late, it was already repaired and running very said he'd changed others but no recall applied...should have been. Only driven in town and on a few trips.
