Areas we cover and why
No-one knows your Volkswagen better than we do. So you can relax when your car is in for service, maintenance or repair, knowing it’s in the safe hands of experts who have the latest Volkswagen training and access to our advanced tools and technology.
Why does it need to be replaced?
Exhaust systems degrade over time due to their operating condition and working environment. Water in the exhaust gases, coupled with road water, salt and dirt attack the metal and cause it to corrode, eventually leading to a leaking exhaust.
What happens if it's not replaced?
It can lead to excessive noise in the car as well as the possibility of exhaust fumes in the cabin. You could also be stopped by the police and issued with a fixed penalty notice or a vehicle defect rectification notice.
What do we do?
We'll check the operation of your exhaust system and ensure it's secured correctly and operating within the required limits. We'll also perform an emissions test during every MOT test.
How often does it need to be checked?
Every service and MOT test or if it's particularly noisy.
