Your vehicle has to do more than get you and your family safely from point A to point B, it’s design and function have to also be mindful of, and responsible to our environment. Since your whole exhaust system lives on the underside of your vehicle, it going to take it’s share of abuse from potholes, road debris and the outdoor elements in general.
Most folks think that the the sole purpose of their vehicle’s muffler and exhaust system is to only reduce noise. Aside from that however, it’s main purpose is to reduce the level of harmful gases that are emitted into the atmosphere. When your vehicle’s exhaust system is working properly, your vehicle not only sounds a a lot more quiet – it’s better all the way around – for you, your car, and the environment.
The exhaust gases created by your vehicle contain carbon monoxide and other substances which can be dangerous if they’re able to make their way into the passenger compartment of the vehicle. It is a good idea to have your emission and exhaust system checked about once a year to ensure it is functioning safely and quietly. This is the reason for many states requiring mandatory State Vehicle Emissions testing.
