A bad flex pipe, can many times; be a sign of bad motor and trans mounts, causing movement which can cause too much play, adding stress to the flex area. Be sure to check the exhaust hangers, the welds on the center mount points, can break off and damage exhaust mounts, etc.

If you have high mileage; you might check your cat and see if it may need replaced as well. If that is the case, you might take the $225 estimated repair cost and just buy a whole new down-pipe (which includes; flex and cat).

We have had good reviews of Bosal brand exhaust systems and cats, a oem for VW. The feedback indicates; they solve trouble codes and pass emissions testing. Check online for better pricing ( amazon, Rockauto, etc) and locally from stores like AutoZone.
