Why is '97 Outback Muffler SO Expensive??

Recommended Posts

I've been told that when my Legacy Outback needs a new muffler to start a savings account, because it's about $1200, even from midas! Why is this? Now mine is starting to get loud, and I'm wondering if there is a cheaper alternative to shelling out this much money for a new exhaust system.

Thanks

the original (320,000 miles) has just lost the skin, still isn't any louder though- any web pages that have a replacement JUST AS GOOD as the original? for a good price........ thanks

Subaru Part number is 44305AC361 and list is $220 and Subaruparts.com is shown as stocking the part and selling it for 167.60 plus shipping of around $17. Theres a gasket between the muffler section and the intermediate pipe that you need in order to replace it which is 44022AA210 which is around $7.

 

This assumes you have a 2.5L Outback.
