Volvos are comfortable, safe, and reliable cars, but when something goes wrong, you really have to pay for it. Foreign cars are always expensive to repair, and Volvos unfortunately do not prove to be an exception to this rule. If you're looking to replace the muffler in your Volvo, however, there is good news: this is one of the most inexpensive kinds of repairs you'll come across throughout the lifespan of your car.

Finding a Muffler for Your Volvo

The most obvious place to go when in search of a muffler is to your Volvo dealership. They'll most likely have the part you need in stock, and will be able to install it on the spot. The disadvantage of going to the dealership is that you're going to pay substantially more than you would if you went to a private mechanic or did the job yourself.

If you're interested in saving money, a good place to start is the Internet. There are hundreds of online parts dealers out there who can help you find just the right muffler for your Volvo. They'll be able to ship it to you within a day or two, at which point you can decide to put it on yourself or take it and the car to a mechanic.

Another advantage of online dealers is that they carry aftermarket parts that are cheaper than OEM Volvo parts. If you're wondering whether it's possible to install the muffler yourself, I can assure you that it's surprisingly easy. It's probably one of the easiest car repair jobs you can do, so if you've got some tools and a can-do attitude, give it a try!
