Has anyone experienced these symptoms? It's disappointing to have issues like these on a 5yr old car with under 100k....oh well

Yes it's a candidate for replacing motor mounts. The problem with these mounts is it's hard to definitively diagnose without pulling the parts. Use OEM replacement for the upper right mount. Below is a link to me replacing all three mounts using OEM on a 2007 SES. Took $166 an 2 hours.
