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

    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.

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

    Service techs noticed loose/worn/failed engine mounts, rear and right, during maintenance check. Replaced at $600 cost.

    Just had routine service done, and dealer says I have a mount that is wearing out, and a rear main oil seal starting to leak. 6 years old and 50000 miles - these shouldn't be happening. The brakes have also squealed after getting hot from a few months after I got the van, but Honda claimed that was normal. Sad that Honda isn't owning up to these issues and doing the right thing.

    Disappointing quality from Honda. I had two Acura Integras previously, and both were rock solid.

    At highway speeds of over 60 mph when ECO mode comes on there is a significant judder/vibration from the engine bay/front of the vehicle. It never occurs during in town driving of lesser speeds
