Default Replacing engine mount

Today, I brought my car to the garage to check the engine mount. He told me that we need to replace the 3 engine mounts: front, back and transmission, and it would cost $810.
He opened the hood, and **** the gear to back, then I saw the engine tilting.
He showed me the front engine mount, but didn't lift the car to show me the other 2 mounts.
Do we really need to change all 3 mounts? or only the front one?

Not sure what you're talking about "front" and "bottom two". There are 3 mounts: bottom, left and right. The left and right support the entire weight of the engine/CVT. The bottom prevents torsion.

If the $810 is the price for genuine Honda parts, it's a good deal. If he's using aftermarket parts, he's making a lot of money off of you.

Both of my HCH2 needed all mounts replaced.

EDIT: A common indication of the need for replacement mounts is vibration when in "D" and stationary. This typically goes away when you're driving.

When I'm at the red light in D, I don't feel vibrations. In 2 oil changes at 2 different locations, they told me about the engine mount.
When I went to the garage, he started up the car and put the gear to backward, and I saw the engine tilting front and back. I also saw the front left mount moving as the engine was moving.
He said that the price was for dealer parts.
Can I use aftermarket engine mounts or does it have to be Honda?

If the rubber is visibly cracked, they should be replaced. I used aftermarket.

The engine tilting front and back is likely the lower brace. That one is cheap and can be replaced in about 10 minutes. I would try that first.

Parts 4, 5 and 7. You should be able to find a very cheap aftermarket torque rod:

I found another garage who will replace 1 Honda mount for only $150. Then, he told me he'll see if we need to replace another mount. That's cheap compared to the previous garage who would replace all 3 mounts for $810. I think garage price depends wether if it's located in an expensive or poor area. I don't mind going in a poor area for my car as long as I don't live there.
