Rich, it sounds like he could possibly be talking about the subframe mounts.
They are along the same lines as engine mounts in that they are a rubber
bushing that isolates the subframe from the rest of the vehicle.  I can't
imagine breaking one let alone two so soon though.  Musta been a bad batch of
rubber if this is indeed what the problem is.

 Dealer says : "2 subframe connectors broken in half".  The service rep
 wasn't too clear with me on what these are - anyone know?  Maybe where
 the front swaybar attaches to the subframe?

 I'm the mad pot-hole dodger, so i'm a little shocked i could've broken
 thru both sides (no blunt traumas here!). I guess the moral is, if you've
 got any clunking up front, get it checked out - he wouldn't let me have
 the car back until they could get parts to fix it 'cause he said it may
 be dangerous to drive! >>
