"A replacement muffler built just like the original? Sounds good to me."
See why aftermarket mufflers can be a poor fit for your Subaru.
Manufactured to match the fit and function of the original part, Genuine Subaru Replacement Mufflers install easily and securely. They also feature a one-piece, fully aluminized steel construction that's warranty-backed to last. Don't risk the added expense and aggravation that an aftermarket muffler might bring-always ask for Genuine Subaru Replacement Mufflers.
But the more you find out about them, the more they sound like trouble. Aftermarket mufflers don't have to meet stringent Subaru specs, so installation can be a challenge. Some fit so poorly that they require pipe adapters, clamps, and adaptable hangers. Typical aftermarket mufflers are also manufactured with lower quality materials and often, fewer noise-dampening components. The result? More rattles and exhaust noise, less corrosion resistance, and a much greater chance that you'll be back in the shop again.Typical aftermarket mufflers may sound good at first.
Genuine Subaru Replacement Mufflers:
Advantages No Aftermarket Muffler Can Match
An all-welded, one-piece unit ensures the exact same fit as the assembly that came with your vehicle. Installations don't require pipe adapters, multiple clamps and adaptable hangers that never fit quite right.
- Welded, One-Piece Assembly
Aluminized steel protects against corrosion, and sound-absorbing materials subdue noise without hampering performance.
- Fully Aluminized Steel Construction
Typical aftermarket mufflers are often rigged with adapters and "cross-fitted" to multiple makes and models. Genuine Subaru Replacement Mufflers include mounting parts that match the original assembly for secure, rattle-free replacement.
- Specifically Designed for Your Car
Our Genuine Subaru Parts Limited Warranty* covers the entire, integrated unit. Typical warranties cover the muffler "box" only. When it rusts out and is replaced, you still pay for the related pipes, adapters, clamps and hangers used during installation.
Invest in the quality and precision of the original equipment at a price that matches or beats aftermarket mufflers.
