So I got a complete diagnosis done to my 2009 Smart fortwo passion. The cost of recommended replacement and labor cost was not pleasing.
1. Left and Right rear axle assembly : $1270.
2. Muffler: $570
3. Sway bar: $300
I've decided to go with (1), since, it's a safety critical issue. The brakes are very hard and I can hear noise when I gently apply the brakes, It sounds like a very dim whistle.
I'm not sure if it is worth spending $570 for muffler replacement? I'm going to get (3) done by myself.
Wondering if anybody's had issue with (1) before?
