"We took the car in on Friday and asked if we could leave it there over the weekend for them to work on on Monday. They called me first thing on Monday morning and" told me what was wrong with the car. By 11:30am, he called me and told me it was done, and I was able to come pick it up by lunch time. He was exceptional in price, and informed me that the muffler was under warranty, and so he only charged me for labor and a couple of parts. His spirit and attitude was just wonderful. He was very kind and positive, and made me feel very comfortable in the work that he did.

"Replaced two exhaust tailpipes and the price came in under the quote. The technician brought me back to the truck explained what was needed even though I already" knew what was needed. Last but not least the technician and manager was so nice and the service was performed 30 minutes less than promised. I highly recommend his location.

Auto exhaust systems

Your car's exhaust system primarily routes exhaust gases away from the engine, but it performs a number a number of other important functions as well.

Because mufflers and tailpipes are constantly exposed to the elements, they may wear more quickly than other parts. (Photo by Fred Patton)
Auto Mufflers

An exhaust leak and other car exhaust repairs are costly. But there are signs that may indicate your muffler or exhaust system needs to be inspected.

I checked with several other shops. They quoted me 400-500 for the job. I then went to
Carlsbad Auto Muffler Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
last since it is farther from where I live. He quoted me $140! He was professional and courteous. He got the job done fast and good. Now mind you the shop has no fancy lobby/lounge or coffee/snacks but the price is right and the job was done to perfection. He also does other under the hood work too. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone.

They explained what was happening and what the cost would be to fix it. They did not charge any more. When I picked up the car, the again explained what had happened. I had a coolant pipe cracked and release coolant into the engine which flooded the plugs and wires. They had to take the top of the engine off and clean things out, drain oil, and coolant. I think the price was fair. Wish I had started with them. They seemed to know from the start what was going on.

It was a different man on the desk who didn't seem very competent, he continually had troubles with name, computer, pricing, etc.. Later,

, I believe a manager, also helped. One of the things I didn't like was now, after they already had me signed up for the tires, I'm informed that I will really need an alignment because of putting on new tires. I'd alraedy been told I would NOT need one, and felt they were just trying to upsell me. The less competent man (I didn't get his name) said he'd check to see if I needed one after the tires were on. Meanwhile, I left, and they called saying the tires I had agreed upon, and which were supposedly ordered, were somehow not the right ones or something (it was very unclear) but they were "upgrading" me to a better tire for the same price. Not a name brand but supposedly better. At this point I could only take their word for it and agreed.
The were quick to get it done and I went to pick it up, within about an hour. The incompetent man didn't even recognize me - after an hour! Anyway, now we're talking about the final price and
Carlsbad Auto Muffler Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
and behold, he'd gone ahead and done the alignment without my authorization but "reduced the price by $40" as if that made it ok. He then talked me into a road hazard coverage for the 4 tires. Every time he quoted a price it was as if that was the final price - and then at the end it would be infinitely different! He never included tax, so as to make it seem a better price. I called him on it and said from now on just give the actual, total, final price with everything included.
Now I go out to drive away, and immediately notice that my steering wheel is STILL crooked, which was one of the problems going in, and when I got on the highway up to 60 mph, the steering wheel was vibrating terribly. I was furious and went right back. They were very solicitous, had the technician drive it, etc. He swore the steering wheel was straight (it still is not) but allowed that perhaps a "weight" had fallen off inside the wheel making it vibrate. They immediately put it up on the rack and sure enough, this was the problem. Apparently the glue hadn't held or something rather flimsy.
I finally got out of there - the employees were all nice and helpful, but I was completely unimpressed with the way the tires themselves were presented and sold to me, the way the prices were all over the place, the apparently shoddy work with the weight, and the fact that the steering wheel is still crooked. I would not likely recommend or go back to this place.

Got there right as the shop opened and told them what I wanted done. They pulled my Ram 1500 in, put it up on the lift and explained what they were planning on doing. Had the stock muffler cut out and new one welded on in around 30 minutes. Very thorough and ensured there were no leaks. It only cost 55 which was about a third of what other shops quoted me. This included adding additional pipe due to the stock muffler being much larger than the magnaflow. Staff were very polite and professional. don't go anywhere else if you need any kind of exhaust work done. Highly recommended.

I have new truck, I wanted to get the magnum flow exhaust, I didn't like how the welds looked and asked the guy if they would do a leak test. The next day there was a dime size hole. They tried to fix it 2 times and I don't feel comfortable taking it back to them, now I'm going to take it to another shop to get it done right. It shouldn't take 3 times to get it right.

It went beautifully. They are excellent welders and didn't try to sell me more then I needed. I wanted to keep my stainless steel muffler system, and they agreed! I will always give them my repeat business!
