I have a 2019 captur in abu dhabi uae. I came out to the parking garage one day, turned her on, and she sounded like a drift car or something, I knew right away something was wrong. I went to check, and turns out the exhaust was just dangling. And of course, the exhaust system isnt covered in the extended warranty I bought. Now they want to charge me £1000 for a new one from France. I dont know anything about cars. Can someone help me to ask the right questions? Thanks all

Difficult to say without photos but has someone been under the car and cut off part of the system (catalytic converter)? These are regularly stolen in the UK. If not this, it is very unusual for the exhaust system to simply come loose, unless you have hit the ground hard under the car. If for some reason it simply fell off (which I find hard to believe) the original warranty should cover this as a defect. If a part has been stolen doesn't your car insurance cover it? Did they tell you what the £1000 would be for?

As twodogs said, sounds like someone has been under your car trying to steal items. The exhaust would not normally "fall off" when the car is parked in a covered garage

On my wife’s 2015 Captur It fell apart at a joint and Renault wanted £600 to renew but got it welded for &10,I think you need a quote from an exhaust specialist, not Renault, I hope you have not been robbed.
