One of the many things that we love about Volkswagen vehicles is that they are so quiet! It allows for a nice, peaceful ride with fewer distractions. That quiet ride can be credited to a high-quality muffler that is attached to the exhaust system. Although Volkswagen uses only the highest quality if mufflers, once in a while the one attached to your model might start to come apart. This is usually due to running over something large (like a deer or other wild critter) or excessive corrosion from winter road salt. First, you might notice only a little noise, which then gets louder and louder over time. Finally, the muffler might completely detach and you will be hearing a painful sound that reminds you of nails on a chalkboard.
If your Volkswagen and its exhaust system is louder than normal, don't fret! Here at Atlantic Volkswagen, we can make the necessary repairs so you can once again enjoy a nice, quiet ride. First, we will access the problem and how much damage there is. We may be able to just weld your muffler back in place with the addition of some extra piping. If there is too much damage or corrosion, we can replace your muffler or rebuild the system. As we inspect your Volkswagen vehicle, we will show you what is happening and offer suggestions so you can be comfortable with the repairs and the costs. We will get you back out on the road as soon as possible thanks to our efficient and highly knowledgeable technicians, along with our extensive stock of genuine Volkswagen-approved parts.
