Default Broken Baffles

Been reading around some other ADAM forums that around 2000-5000 miles the exhaust silencer baffles are breaking and need to be replaced under warranty. It looks like this is more common with early build dates.

has anyone seen this?

I guess it's a good thing they cheaped out on the mufflers, better they cheap out their than someone else that's vital to get the vehicle from point A to B

Warranty should cover it though. It sucks to have to go through the whole process, but that is looking on the bright side.

As cool as that may be for some, it's also annoying to others. Not everyone that owns an Adam will want it to have an "annoying" exhaust like that.

Even just being an exhaust made out of some type of metal that a lot of car makers use for entry level models, keeping it very basic it should be good enough and not be a issue
