"They do mufflers, and not much else but they're very good at what they do and incredibly cheap and fast. The waiting area is like most cheaper repair shops," nothing to talk about. What's great is that they roll you right into the service bays and can weld up/fix something ASAP. They'll fix a LOT of smaller issues for a flat $20.

"I called on Thursday thought he was open on Friday. I made a confirmation phone call but no answer and his answering machine was full up. I went anyway, and he" was closed with no explanation. I almost gave up but called today and talked to the shop person (they don't have a receptionist and if their phone messages are full, that's it). I gave it some thought and considered that lots of people call and leave messages and there was even a hand-written note taped to the door to call if the shop opens up. He's popular and rated 5 star on another rating service too. On a verbal OK, I agreed to the price, took a walk and within the hour the job was done. This is definitely not a fancy place and it may put you off at first, but it seems on the up and up. Bring your own coffee or sit in the coffee shop a short walk south on 15th Ave--or better yet, in the fancy brand-name shop down the street!

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.

Muffler Repair reviews in Carlsbad

I was having issues with a rattling sound in my Mustang. I took it to the dealership to see if they could fix it, and have it covered under warranty. It turned out to be a hanger issue, and the dealership quoted me a price of $250 to weld the hanger back on to the exhaust.
I called
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
, spoke with
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
and explained the problem I was having. I brought the car to his shop where he was able to give me a reasonable price. Not only was he able to cut the dealership's price in half, he also added 2 new hangers to each side of the car for additional support. The rattling noise is gone and my car is back to sounding the way it was intended.
I'll definitely refer friends having car problems to

at

. Not only was he friendly and personable, but he did a great job going above and beyond to have my car sounding just right.

installed a new muffler and tail pipes on my 2006 F150. It cost $608.34. I was told it had a lifetime warranty. On 6/13/2015 I was doing an oil change and noticed that the exhaust is rotting out. I went to

on 6/16/2015.

was at the desk. He looked at my paperwork and said it was covered by warranty. He said his
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
was broke down, so he would call me when it was fixed. On 6/25/2015 he called me at 11am and said the
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
was fixed. We made an appointment for 6/27/2015 to put on a new exhaust. He called me back at 1pm and said that when he went to order the parts he found out that they were not warranted for life but only one year. So I would have to pay for the new exhaust. But he would give me a break and only charge me $564. I told him forget it I was not going to pay $500 - $600 every 3.5 years for a new exhaust. At

I called to get a quote at same time I made the appointment. I was quoted 30 and told it was just a little more to upgrade to synthetic so I agreed. Also asked about additional fees and was told 2.50 for environmental fee. After work was done I was presented a bill for 89.50. Charged for 6 qts of oil but my car takes only 5, an oil filter that I did not ask for and a $9.94 shop fee just for the privilege of them being a business and having overhead! I am so angry! Had I not paid they would not have given me my keys so I just had to bite my
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
and leave. The bill was almost exactly 3 times what I was quoted. I will never go back. Please note: the

Service was performed as promised and I was kept informed at all points. Friendly, professional, and no mystery as to what was going on with my car. Much better experience than with the dealership.

it went really well. this is a great mechanic here and I can say he's very professional about his service. he doesn't nickel and dime you trying to squeeze ever dollar out of you. I can tell by just the way he looks at my car when it's up
on the lift that he knows what he's doing and looking for. other mechanics in the past have just said you need this and that and I'm gonna order the 'special part' for you right now and come when you're ready. basically trying to force you to come in and spend your money. I believe this guy at wrench craft, his name is
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
, and he doesn't pressure you at all. he lets you know what's going on and gives you options of which way he can fix the problem giving great solutions. I am really looking forward to going back and getting my car fixed up here with this guy. very professional and he seems to know what he's doing very well. I've bought my car used about a year ago and it was a headache since the day I got it with all the problems. with a mechanic like this I can finally say that I am really relived and looking forward to getting the car fixed because he's a smart guy and truly just wants to help you get your car in great condition.

I would one THOUSAND percent recommend anyone to go here. I have already told friends of
mine that if they need work to be done, there's a great guy on route 33 at a shop called

I called Goodyear in
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
, OH to schedule an appointment to have a diagnostic performed on my vehicle. Instead, I was met with a rude and condescending representative. He proceeded to tell me that he doesn't schedule appointments for a diagnostic and suggest I drop off my vehicle as early as possible and they will try to get to it sometime that day. I stated to the representative that I had a preliminary diagnostic ran and I wanted to make sure that was the problem. I then asked him how much is a diagnostic. He stated $90 (and that is in addition to the cost of repairs). I said that was very high in which he proceeded to say that he was on the cheaper end and that other places charge between $80 to $120 for a diagnosis. He then continued to explain the in-depth diagnostic that they perform, talking to me like I was an idiot. In addition, he stated if I got a diagnostic from a place like Auto Zone that they are only trying to sell me a part. This individual made the assumption that I received a preliminary diagnostic from such a place, when that was to the contrary. I don't like when companies put down their competitors. I find that to be unprofessional. Besides, I have had diagnostics done at auto parts stores and never once did I feel like they were trying to sell me their parts. This representative sounded like he was overwhelmed and he certainly was not trying to attract any business with his "winning personality" (I'm being sarcastic of course.) I finally had to interrupt him and state that his detail of the diagnostics they perform was not necessary and that I very well understand that the reading from the computerized device only helps to point the mechanic in the correct direction as to what may be wrong with the vehicle (My Check Engine Light had came on...which was the only problem I was experiencing with my vehicle...no performance issues.) I then called a local competitor who was very professional and acted like he wanted my business. I requested the same service...a diagnostic...and he had no problem scheduling an appointment. He welcomed the diagnostic reading I had and stated that if I decided to have the repairs completed that he would apply the amount of the diagnostic charge as a credit to the repair cost. Their diagnostic charge was almost the same amount as Goodyear quoted. Bottom line: I hope the residents of
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
stop patronizing this local Goodyear location and take their business elsewhere. Goodyear needs to appreciate their customers, give them respect and not make any assumptions including the person about whom they are talking to and their level of automotive knowledge. I, personally, have over 20 years of automotive experience and because I am female doesn't mean I don't have a brain in my head ...warranting to be talked "down" to. The only reason I choose not to work on my vehicle anymore is that I am just getting too old to be under a car and taking on that kind of work. I have other uses of my time. I know the residents of
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
are very loyal and will look locally first to support the businesses in the area. It seems this Goodyear location has taken the residents of
Carlsbad Muffler Shops Provider Name Locked
for granted and needs to be reminded how one is treated does matter.
