There’s a silent killer in your automobile. It can strike without warning, making you sick or, if ignored long enough, even take your life. It’s your car’s exhaust system.

Wait, silent? When an exhaust system leaks, don’t they make a lot of noise?

They used to, but today nearly every exhaust system on the road has a catalytic converter. And those converters reduce noise a lot, even before the exhaust reaches the muffler. So your car could be leaking exhaust gasses without you even realizing it.

Those exhaust gasses include carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and oxides of nitrogen. Each of those gasses can make you sick… or worse. And today they can be leaking out under your car without you even noticing it… until it’s too late.

That’s a great reason why you should bring your car to your local Cottman center for all your service and maintenance requirements. Because their technicians are well aware of just how easily the exhaust could be leaking, without making any unusual noises. They know what to look for, and they check the exhaust each time you bring your car in for service.

And, if they find a problem with your car’s exhaust or muffler, they have the tools and the experience to replace it and make sure that the exhaust system retains its original integrity. So you won’t have to worry about raw exhaust leaking into your car for you to breathe.

Not sure whether your car’s exhaust is in proper working condition? Or maybe you noticed a little engine noise or rattle from underneath your car that you never heard before? Call your local Cottman center today and explain your problem. They’ll get you right in and, if they find something wrong with your exhaust or muffler, they’ll work up an estimate to get your car fixed right… right away.
