Front & Back Motor Mounts on 2001 Honda Accord

I just came back from Firestone and they said I needed to replace all of my motor mounts, which with parts & labor will run me around $600. I only went in for an oil change, and new brake pads, no engine complaints. Is it routine to have to change motor mounts or are they fishing here?

How many miles are on your Honda? And, do you feel any bump when you change gears from park to reverse to drive. This is usually the main complaint from a bad motor mount(s). Well, you did verify the complaint sympton, so yes maybe so.

Thanks for replying. I have around 114,000 miles on it. The bump you mention happens sometimes when I shift gears too quickly without pressing down all the way on the brakes. 'Bout time for some replacements?
