The cost of a muffler replacement might range from $75 to $750, as of September 2014. The cost can be significantly higher if other components, such as the exhaust pipes, have to be replaced at the same time.
Several factors are important in determining the price of a muffler replacement. The price is influenced by whether the vehicle is a truck, van or passenger car. Another crucial factor is the type of replacement muffler installed. The price is generally higher if an original equipment manufacturer part is installed. If the shop installs an aftermarket muffler, the price is usually lower.
