Of all the parts of your car that you notice or think about, the exhaust pipe is probably pretty low down the list. Tucked away under the car, it’s not something that a lot of people think about unless it’s literally falling off. However, around 7% of all MOT failures are down to damaged exhausts, and it’s worth remembering that your car’s exhaust system is more than just the pipe we see poking out from under the car.
The exhaust system reduces your car’s emissions, keeps the noise to a legal level, and of course carries toxic fumes away from you and your passengers. However, extremes of weather and general wear and tear, from the roads, can damage various parts of the exhaust system.
If you notice your car sounds louder than usual, or if there is a hissing or rattling sound from the car as you drive, there’s a good chance that you have an issue with the exhaust. If you hear or see any issues with the exhaust, then give us a call and we can come to check if there is an issue that needs addressing.
Thankfully, many repairs for exhaust pipes are simple procedures that can be carried out quickly and for a very reasonable cost. However, leaving a problem unchecked will cost you far more in the long run – from increased fuel consumption, to failed MOT checks, and in the worst case scenarios you even risk fire or the inhalation of dangerous fumes.
Our team of mechanics will diagnose any problem, and offer you a transparent quote on how best to fix the issue. Moreover, as we come to you, when it best suits you, there’s no need for the whole process to be exhausting. Sorry, we’ll stick to repairing cars and leave the puns from now on.
Mario turned up looking professional in uniform with an immaculate van, inspiring confidence he had high standards. He fitted a battery and programmed car brain in a mini cooper I was minding efficiently and quickly. He also explained after care. Very pleasant and trustworthy chap. Will use the service again when next in a mechanical rut! One caveat: I did have to buy the battery from Eurocarparts as it was considerably cheaper than the one quoted from MD but Mario was still happy to fit it. Many thanks.
First called Mario out when my Air con wasn’t working, lucky enough it was a simple service which was required. Since then he’s done multiple services & repairs on my cars, always on time and explains all his work throughly. Highly recommend!!
He was there on time and did a fully check on the car. He explained the issues the car had and gave me estimates on how much repairs would costs. 10 our of 10!
very helpful with identifying a car I didn’t end up buying. His thorough inspection saved me hassle and money. Thank you.
