Keeping Up with Your Muffler and Exhausts

Many drivers don't fully understand what an exhaust system does for them and their vehicle. Of course, we all know that a loud car needs a new muffler, but the exhaust system is so much more.

First of all, it is important to understand that a muffler is just one component of the exhaust system. The exhaust system starts at the engine and provides a safe passage for the exhaust gasses all the way to the tailpipe. During this journey, the exhaust system uses sensors to analyze the gasses, providing a healthier vehicle, healthier driver, and healthier planet.

Modern vehicles have exhaust systems that are made of stainless steel and designed to last for years, possibly even as long as the vehicle. But nothing can prevent random objects from puncturing the exhaust system while driving. Once this happens, the system is compromised, and you and your passengers could be breathing exhaust.

Make a point to have your exhaust system checked by the professionals in our service center at Macdonald Motors Bridgton - Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram the next time you take your vehicle in. It's a small price to pay for your health and safety.
