2005 Ford Five Hundred Q&A

2005 Ford Five Hundred Question: Dealership service center told me my top engine mount needs to be replaced

This was at my 100,000 mile service. Mechanic said that it would cost about $700. Have not had any symptoms except occasional hesitation when accelerating. Should I get a second opinion/use a different mechanic? This seems really high -
Answer 1
Depending on which mount your car needs it may be the correct price and likely it does need it if you feel what you discribe as a hesitation. The right side HYDRAULIC MOUNT calls for 3.2 Hr. labor time and the mount if you get from dealer is about $200. Nothing wrong with getting a second opinion and another price. -
Answer 2
The part us $250 at the parts house I used and anther 100 to install -
