If your Honda Civic sounds like a Nascar racer, you likely need your exhaust system repaired. Islington Village Automotive can repair or replace just about any exhaust system on any car, from the header, collector of manifold to the rear tail pipe.
Exhaust “service” is a bit of misnomer. Most exhaust systems don’t have any moving parts, so there is really nothing to service or maintain. What exhausts do require is frequent inspection, to make sure that worn mounts don’t lead to premature failure.
Did you know that the main cause of failed mufflers is simply a broken clamp? The cost of a clamp normally amounts to pocket change. If you’re aware of this, chances are you already deal with us, because at Islington Village Automotive we believe an informed customer is a contented customer. We like to help take the mystery out of automotive repairs. Our clients really appreciate that. Besides, explaining about all of the “little extras” we provide is good for business.
For example, when you bring your car in for an oil change, our technicians always check the exhaust system. Just a “little wiggle here, and a little wiggle there” to make sure everything is firm and tight. You may not even be aware, and yet this simple precaution could save you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary repairs.
How? Because those “little wiggles” pre-test the clamps. If a clamp gives out while your vehicle is in operation, it could well lead to extensive exhaust system repairs. Repairs that were preventable! Like so many other things our technicians do, taking the time to check the clamps on your muffler and pipes can save you unnecessary expense.
This alone won’t prevent exhaust failures. But if you do require an exhaust system, we can help with that as well.
