Honda Odyssey Problem Report
Honda Odyssey Vibration Caused By Failed Rear Engine Mount
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? - Visitor
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. - Visitor
All engine mounts broken this should be a recall,, why no recall dealer has to replace many? - Visitor

Excessive vibration when driving and accelerating. At regular maintenance/service visit informed Dealer, and they confirmed and fixed - Visitor
Noticed vibration when speed exceeds 50 MPH. Honda dealer noted this is most likely due to EOO mode but vibration is too much to be normal. Vibration increases in intensity when accelerating above 50 MPH. 5 service inspections and master technicians cannot diagnose problem(s)yet. Engine mount failure noted by other owners describe the problem precisely. - Visitor

Engine vibrations during eco mode. - Visitor
When I took the vehicle for break package, the service tech told me that the real engine mounts have failed and needs to be replaced. Gave me a quote of USD 1017. Vehicle vibrates a lot when ECO mode comes on. - Visitor
Horrible Vibration in ECO mode due to VCM (3 cylinders shutting down) at all speeds. Defeats Honda's whole purpose of saving gas because I am on and off the gas trying to keep ECO from coming on. $778 estimate to replace just the rear engine mount. HONDA SHOULD PAY FOR MOTOR MOUNT REPAIRS OR PROVIDE A WAY TO TURN OFF VCM IN THE PCM/ECM! Please make your voice heard on this widespread and known issue. Trip to dealership only got a PCM update which did NOT fix the problem. - Visitor
Service techs noticed loose/worn/failed engine mounts, rear and right, during maintenance check. Replaced at $600 cost. - Visitor
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. - Visitor
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 - Visitor
wheel vibration at 65 mph - Visitor
why front right motor mount and front lower motor mount broke so easy - Visitor
This was a brand new purchase from the dealer. I first complained of the rattling at low speeds when the car was at 23,000. After all day at the dealer, they could not hear it. Then at 30,000 I had the tech ride with me and he finally heard it. I now hear it at highway speeds as well, when it goes into ECO. They checked with other technicians around the US and suggested the rear engine mount failure. If this one doesn't fix it, they say they'll replace the front one. It's just barely still under warranty, and I'm looking forward to another day of either waiting or dropping my Odyssey off and leaving it for four hours. - Visitor
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. - Visitor
