02 Saab 9-3 saab exhaust system Sign In

About 14 months ago I took my 2002 Saab 9-3 turbo convertible to meineke because I needed a new muffler and they were recommended. They looked at my car and told me the whole thing need to be replaced. It cost me just over $900. Recently I have been experiencing a strong gas scent in my car so I took it to my mechanic. He told me that the pipe had cracked right where it connects to the muffler so I should take it back to meineke. This morning I took it back and just got a call from them saying that they replaced everything last time except the piece that is now broken. They will now charge me another $250. I pulled out my receipt from last time and it states: Remove and replace muffler, exhaust pipe, flex pipe. Are there other parts that comprise the system? When they told me they were replacing the whole thing, I thought that meant the whole thing.

The warranty for most all exhaust parts excluding the muffler is only a year anyway so I doubt you could have any coverage now.

They offer a two year material warranty and one year for the labor.

That's why they made a point of telling me that it was the one piece they didn't replace before. They had already told me that they guarantee the materials for two years.

So, ask them to show you what they replaced. There can be many pieces to a system.
