Default Cheaper genuine GM 21012185 top motor mount on ebay?

So my top motor mount needs replacement, and I want the genuine GM part 21012185. The price is the same just about everywhere, around 75$, except for one seller on ebay who has three left at 54$. Ebay listing number is 261757202365. I'm in Canada, so I have to order from Ebay - the big GM parts sites just charge way too much for shipping.

So here's what I'm wondering: are all genuine GM 21012185 motor mounts the same, or are some of them so old that they're frowny-style mounts that came as original equipment on some generations of Saturns?

Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I ordered 2 of them separately from eBay, same situation; a little cheaper than some other dealers.

Both of mine are exactly like original (as they are...) and function fantastically.

If everything looks legit, go ahead!

It boggles my mind why these are so much more expensive in Canada. Even with this eBay price at $54.05 USD it'll be $90 CAD once you add in exchange, shipping, import fees and taxes.

The local dealer wants $134.38 CAD and a Canadian On-Line dealer wants $124.57 CAD. These prices reflect out of pocket costs for my location in Ontario. The Canadian On-Line dealers shipping cost is pretty close to what the US eBay shipping and import fees are. It's actually a couple dollars less.

So the motor mount is now paid for! Two left if anybody wants them - I made an offer at US$50 and it was automatically accepted.

With shipping and import fees, it's US$65.45 or 81.50$CA. So that's cheaper than my local dealer at 118.92$CA+tx=136,73$CA.

The mounts are different in Canada since the engines are being supported so much higher up than in the U.S.

The answer is yes, there is a difference. The OEM solid rubber mount out performs both the aftermarket frowny (as per link) and the aftermarket solid rubber mounts. The 'genuine' OEM will last longer and transfers less engine vibration to the chassis.

I'll vouch for this. My SL1 was a vibrating piece of junk before I went to the OEM solid mount. Now it's smooth quiet sailing.

Hi friends....My Saturn seems too be A okay I'm so excited too drive it I cant contain myself BUT I don't drive it because it has NO plates & NO Ins but it will by next Friday...My awesome mechanic ULuz2a6 said it needs a motor mount(Left side top) when facing the car is GONE/WORN OUT so the car shakes but is better when driving but my question is I can only do SO much every payday so I will be driving it for 2 weeks with this bad motor mount & I have heard horror stories about an engine "Falling" that would be just my luck.....I HATE that I have too work the next 6 days because I have too WALK too work and its about a mile but me driving the car "illegally" just will NOT happen that's like me CALLING the police and telling them where I will be with the car today because they will take it they do NOT give 2 ****s its not THIER car so that's just a "NO NO" all around....Should I let it sit the next 2 weeks because of that motor mount? Just wanna be safe and that would be a BAD day if the engine "FELL" Thanx friends I will do a video when the car is legal but I DO start it every morning and yesterday I just let it idle in my driveway too see if the fan came on when the temp gauge was a little past the 1/2 mark and it DID so then I turned it off so I dont waste all my gas

...
My dogs LOVE car rides and I LOVE my dogs =) I don't even know what I don't know anymore......

Your engine will not fall, but if the vibration is really bad you should minimize driving it until you replace the mount as you could damage the timing cover. There is no need to start it everyday
