Q: The exhaust has a leak. Could that be expensive to fix?

asked by on

I'm looking to buy this car and it has an exhaust leak and I want to know how expensive it is to fix.

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

As you know, parts and labor can vary in price tremendously depending on the shop, the skills of the mechanic and many other factors. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to perform a pre-purchase inspection prior to buying the car to be sure there are not any additional underlying issues that you may not be aware of.
