Tried to buy a 2003 Acura MDX from Carmax, I took the car to my mechanic for inspection within Carmax's 5 day inspection guarantee and there were three critical items that needed to be addressed 1) break pads/rotars needed to be replaced, 2) engine mount was cracked...

First off, Carmax should have caught the vehicle up to its service interval for that mileage which would include the timing BELT ( it does not have a chain) as for the brakes & motor mount, if the brakes have at least 30% left, they should leave them alone, it sounds like your mechanic was trying to make a buck as brakes are common upsells when they have anything less than 50%. People bs customers and prey on emotions with saftey issues. I assure you, if it NEEDED brakes, Carmax would have done them, The motor mount is probably a bs item your mechanic wants to upsell you also, unless its completely broken or falling apart, it is normal to see some stress cracking on a 100,000 mile vehicle, keep in mind, this is not something thats going to leave you on the side of the road and you did not buy a new vehicle, it will have normal wear & tear.
