Been told since about 2005 that one motor mount on my 1994 Geo Prism is cracked. Then another, I believe.
Have had 3 different service shops (in different states) tell me about the crack(s). But it seems to run ok, so I save
the money and keep running it.

Had about 200000 miles when I was first told around 2005 or so. Have 257000 now, in Sept. 2014. Keep driving it, as it is a "backup" car mainly now, and used only for local slow speed driving.
