93,000 miles and we hear a harsh grinding noise from the front right side. Took it to the shop. Replaced the upper torque mount and lower engine motor mount bushing. Still the same noise. Put it on the rack again and they found the upper right engine mount broken as well. Frustrating issue for a newer car.
