A leaking exhaust is something that should be repaired right away. Not only does this affect the quality of your drive, but you could also be releasing toxic emissions into the environment. If you don't know what to look for, let Jeff Smith Kia give you a few tips.
  • A leaking exhaust will affect the overall efficiency of your vehicle. You may notice that your fuel efficiency numbers decrease slowly over time.
  • When you have your engine running, see if you can feel a slight vibration in the steering wheel.
  • Hissing or popping noises may occur upon startup or after the vehicle has been running for a few minutes.
  • Condensation can come out of your rear tail pipe as a slow drip.
  • A strong odor may be noticed from being the vehicle or inside the cabin while you have the engine running.
