Hey guys, just got myself an automatic 2012 eclipse spyder gs.

The mechanic said I need new engine mounts and transmission mounts, any recommendations on which ones I need to get?

Thanks!

Welcome to the club

Take your pick, only the Energy Suspension are stiffer than stock. If it's the driver's side trans mount, that's a tricky one to get as a non-performance version.

I get kinda confused, how many engines mounts does it has and how many transmission mounts?

The engine and trans are connected. Don't worry too much about the semantics. There are 4 mounts total. Front, rear, driver's side, passenger side. Front goes to the trans but is usually called a motor mount. Rear goes to the trans but is usually called a motor mount. Passenger side is engine only. Driver's side is trans

I've never owned an auto eclipse, so can't speak to any truth about a manual and auto mount being the same. The pressed in bushings should be though.

If you're handy, you also could still out the rubber a bit and pump in construction urethane. $10 fix, and stiffens the mounts beyond stock easily. That gives better handling, and reduced torque steer, not that torque steer is a big issue on a GS auto.
