That sounds like an absurd amount of money for motor mounts and labor. If they are bad, you should feel a shaking in the wheel at IDLE as the engine rocks back and forth. I would CERTAINLY seek a second opinion. Take it to a MBZ dealer for an estimate and verification.

the amount of time to replace these mounts is absurd.. ive done two now, and would not even consider doing for less than 1100.00 or so. the mounts alone are almost 400.00. sounds like a lot but very hard to do these mounts.
