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 queitly..dealer said he'd changed others but no recall applied...should have been. Only driven in town and on a few trips.
