Exclamation Motor srt8

Im looking at buying a challenger Srt8 and I pulled car fax. It has 12k miles w 3 owners. All svc records are normal w the exception of 1. Motor mounts replaced at 10,500mi. I haven't heard of a recall so that leaves me to believe that the car was driven really hard thus motor mounts fail. The car is still under warranty but should I have major concerns preventing me from buying?

Thanks

Motor mounts can be replaced in an attempt to lessen vibration or resonance.

I wouldn't consider that conclusive evidence of it being driven hard.

I haven't heard anything bad or good about that car so I can't comment on that.

Thanks man... Just talked to a mechanic and he said that the vehicle is more likely to have been upgraded or wrecked vs driven hard enough to damage mounts w/ in 10k.

Thanks again!

12k miles and 3 owners would tell me to steer clear from it.

I had to replace a motor mount on my focus at like 12K miles because it was so sloppy stock.
