Subaru Muffler Replacement & Repair Services Research in Redwood City, CA

The muffler in your vehicle's exhaust system is there to muffle the sound of the engine. Without it, your vehicle would be loud enough to annoy the neighbors and even get you a ticket. If your ride sounds particularly loud, especially if the sound seems like it's coming from the rear of the vehicle, it may be time to get the muffler repaired or replaced.

In our authorized Subaru service center just down the road from San Mateo, CA, we've seen just about everything that a Subaru may need. This includes muffler repair and replacement. We think it's helpful for our customers to have a better understanding of the various systems in their vehicle so they can better take care of it. If you have any questions, please reach out to us by scheduling a service appointment online or give us a call to chat with one of our Subaru experts.

Symptoms of a Bad Muffler

As you may have guessed from above, the most common and obvious symptom of a bad muffler on your vehicle is the sound. However, an engine that suddenly seems to be louder isn't always because of the muffler. A breach anywhere in the exhaust system can turn up the volume of our vehicle's engine. While the vehicle is running and safely in park with the brake on, walk around the vehicle. If the sound seems worse towards the rear, that's a good indication that something is wrong with the muffler. To be certain, have one of our certified technicians look at it.

What Could Cause a Muffler to Go Bad?

Typically, mufflers aren't a part that wear out short of severe corrosion. More often, road debris and other unseen surprises on the road are to blame for muffler problems. Since Subaru models are designed to take you further, we occasionally see muffler damage from an off-road trail that was just a little more than the Subaru could handle. Remember, if your muffler has come loose and is hanging low toward the ground, you should not drive the vehicle. It can drag on the road and cause sparks that could lead to unintended fires.

Why Trust the Certified Experts at Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City, CA?

While no one knows your Subaru quite like the certified technicians in our service center, there are other reasons to trust the dealership for taking care of your Subaru. You see, generic oil change chains and independent mechanics typically don't specialize in Subaru engineering the way we do. When you trust dealership experts, you won't have to worry about paying for extra parts that don't solve the problem. Instead, authorized technicians like ours are extensively trained in the diagnosis and service of Subaru models. This way, you know that your Subaru is getting the expert care it deserves.

What's more, we only use OEM and factory-approved parts, fluids, and components that allow you to continue your journey with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your Subaru maintains the high quality it came with the day it rolled off the assembly line. Not only is this a level of quality you can count on, authorized Subaru service is an important part of maintaining the factory warranty.
