1997 Honda Accord - 2.2L 4 Cylinder 140,000 mi,
The front motor mount has broken 4 times while we've owned this 1997 Honda Accord (from ~90k to 140k miles). Last replacement was about 3 months ago at which time the driver's side motor mount was also replaced and the car was taken to a dealership for an inspection of all the motor mounts. The dealer reported all motor mounts and drive axles were ok at that time (as a side note, both drive axles were replaced due to worn CV joints just after the 2nd motor mount replacement). Despite all our previous efforts, upon inspection yesterday we found the front motor mount is broken again. Is there a design problem with the front motor mount on this model Accord or is this a symptom of something amiss with this car?
