A rear engine mount that is broken can cause an engine vibration felt in the vehicle. Replacing the failed mount will repair this problem.

    Excessive vibration when driving and accelerating. At regular maintenance/service visit informed Dealer, and they confirmed and fixed

    Same issue described here by many other owners. Apparently, both mounts are now broken, although one appears to have just recently become so, as the vibration just suddenly began. At 86,694, and a 2006 model, seems I have gotten away with what is a unacknowledged "design defect" in Honda Odyssey minivans, what with the SAME costly repair afflicting so many owners. I mean, c'mon: "Broken Engine Mounts"? Really?

    Dealer service center is giving me a "break", but it's still a $1,700 repair. What with the PAX run-flat tires, the Odyssey Touring Edition has been a MAINTENANCE DISASTER for me ... THOUSANDS in repairs that non Odyssey owners just never have to contemplate, much less pay for. But aside from that, the car has been a dream ... and paid off years ago, I just can't bring myself to invest in another new or used car, each with its own PANDORA'S BOX of unknown problems and issues and headaches. So, here I am on a Monday morning now investing 4 hours into waiting at my dealership to get this and a recalled fuel pump all fixed.

    Anyone else feel this kind of pain?

    No problem when accelerating from a stop but once the ECO comes on any acceleration causes extreme engine shake. Most pronounced at 65 mph and up accelerating after running in ECO mode.

    Active motor mount failure at 50,000 miles is a known Honda problem since at least 2005 when my previous Odyssey had the same issue, at least the replacement part has lasted over a 100,000 miles. 2012 Model motor mounts are no better 7 years later.

    Second failed motor mount for 2006 Odyssey Touring. This is ridiculous after reading all of the reports on this website. Honda should have redesigned to eliminate this problem by now, but one posting listed their 2012 as having the same issue. Really? It's also been in for fuel pump replacement per recall, etc, etc, though I've had many good running miles on it, it seems to have poor design with the heavy weight of the run-flat tires, rims and overall torgue the weight of the 6 cylinder puts on the engine mounts. There are a total of 6 motor mounts! The two rear ones run around 500-600.00 each since they contain a hydraulic element. I am disappointed, as the economy slips, so is my faith in Honda after this. Honda does hire engineering professionals to design their cars right? Hmmm, maybe I should apply. I'm just a single parent trying to make it with some real world experience. There goes another 1000.00.

    2006 Honda Odyssey Touring: Excessive vibration when ECO kicks in no matter the speed. Dealership had already replaced the front and side mounts. Still didn't fix the problem. Had to go back and have the rear mount replaced as well. I've never heard of this problem before in other vehicles of any kind.
