How do you make your car quieter?

What are some things I can do to make my car quieter? I get self-conscious when I have other people in my car because it’s so loud. Can I do anything to fix this?

Answer
Loud cars can be annoying to live near and frustrating to use! Luckily you can use these tips to make your car quieter:
  • Buy a new muffler. When your muffler is old or loose, your car will make a lot more noise than it would otherwise.
  • Get sound deadening mats. These can be placed over the door panels, on the floor, in the trunk of your car, or anywhere else you need them!
  • Get new tires. Tires are a big source of road noise, and some tires will make a lot more noise than others. Generally, smaller tires will make less noise than larger ones.
  • Stay up to date on maintenance. Often, a noisy engine is indicative of other problems in your car. Make sure that your car has been properly serviced recently.
If you use those tips, your car should be much quieter! If you’re still having trouble with the noise, try asking your mechanic if they have any recommendations. A professional may be able to help you diagnose the problem, making it much easier to fix.
