What is the deal with the exhaust? Dealer says my exhaust sound is the "Hemi Sound"

Asked by Oct 19, 2009 at 02:47 PM about the 2008 Jeep Commander Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My jeep sounds like it has an exhaust leak.  I've been around the block a few times and have had my share of exhuast leaks.  I know my jeep sounds just like that.  Does anyone else have that magic hemi sound?

Anyone else gone to a nice aftermarket package for a better sound?


1 Answer


Have you tried feeling for any exhaust blowing from a pipe joint or box end? I also used to have the hemi sound. It was on an Alfa Romeo GTV that the silencer had fallen off.
