Agree. I see a rubber gasket/washer or something between the curved metal washer and the top of the mount. There is nothing in the OP's pictures to suggest anything is making the car undrivable. In any case, we really need a video to see if there is any dynamic failure such as rubber pushing through the center of the mount.

Why does it look like it was installed incorrectly? What doesn't look right?
