I had to have the left side mount replaced at 75,200. I had felt the steering and car shaking more than usual shortly before, but I waited since I was close to the 75,000 maintenance. The problem was discovered while in the service center. It cost approximately $600 (mostly labor cost) and replaced what is a molded piece of rubber. I never experienced this problem with any other car, but overall I have had fewer major repair bills than any other car, but when there is a problem, its usually costly.
