Smax Premature Exhaust Failure

09 February 2010 - 03:25 PM


While driving on the motorway in my Smax yesterday the back exhaust box fell off. The car was recovered and dropped at my local mechanic where inspection revealed that a complete new exhaust from the catalytic converter back to the tailpipe was required. The car is an 07 plate and has only done 63,000 miles, typically long distance (no exhaust killing stop start driving) so I am very disappointed to be shelling out the best part of 400 to get a new exhaust fitted. The pipe connecting the back box to the cat was absolutely shot to pieces and was beyond the wwear expected of a car this age and mileage.

Has any one else experienced premature failure of the exhaust system on the Smax and is there any comeback from Ford on this?
