My dealer has notified me that the front and side engine mounts are broken. They make it sound more like a "nice to have done" but not a "need to have done". Which is it? Should I have them replaced to prevent other problems or really is this more of a "confortable ride" issue that doesn't affect engine performance? The costs to replace are significant so weighing the importance of doing it. Thanks

if they are broken, then they need to be replaced. engine movement can cause all kinds of issues. get them done. shop around for the best price. Roy
Was just told by dealer they are cracked. How long should they last. Never had this problem on any other car, and another customer was told at the same time his car needed new motor mounts.
do I have to access the starter from under the car?
