The car exhaust system is responsible for removing emissions, allowing the car to be safe for the driver and passengers as well as the environment. There are two other crucial functions the exhaust system serves. One is to lessen the loud explosive noises of combustion, the other is to ensure your car is running at optimum fuel efficiency.
The exhaust system is determined by different factors such as weather and driving conditions. It should undergo periodic inspection for corrosion and damage.
