Whilst having the fluids changed and having some minor service work carried out on my '98 V8, it was found that one of the transmission mounts was broken.
I just wondered how regular an occurrence this is and what the possible cause of the mount failing could have been?
I certainly had not experienced or noticed any issue with the handling or performance of the car prior to this discovery.
Thanks

Unusual but not uncommon. The good news is they can be welded. I suspect it is because the car was "flogged" at some point in the past. Another weak point is the rear bearing housing. Especially if you hit a curb sideways or press the bearing out improperly.
