Great Service

We just wanted to say what great service we got with the Guys at Scottsdale Muffler. We have a 93 Chevy Astro Van that would not pass Emissions. We had taken it to someone else who wanted to charge us a fortune to fix it. We were referred to Chris and his shop, what a difference. They fixed the problem, were friendly and the best part reasonably priced. I would recommend them to anyone who needs auto repairs.

Exhaust inspection and repair

My daughter's car had an exhaust leak She took her car to the Sun Devil #23 repair shop. At this shop they inspected her exhaust leak and quoted a full replacement of the exhaust system for $1073. They even told her that the exhaust manifold was cracked. She called me and I told her to get a written estimate and leave the shop. Prior to leaving the shop one of the repairmen told her that she should drive fast as the exhaust system could fall off and damage her car.

I then took her car to Brake Masters in Scottsdale for inspection. The pipe between the catalytic converter and the muffler broke at the connecting flange weld. The exhaust system was fully supported with three hangers and bolted to the exhaust manifold so it was not in danger of falling down but the leak needed to be repaired. Paul from Brake Masters estimated the repair at $60.00. Paul then referred me to Scottsdale Muffler. At Scottsdale Muffler the pipe and the connecting flange was cut off a new piece was welded in its place. The total cost of repair was $44.81.

Thank You Brake Masters and Scottsdale Muffler!!!

Wow: They are who they say they are!! and that's a good thing!! So, my 2004 Range Rover had a pretty bad exhaust leak around the manifold - sounded like an old junker car. I smelled huge dollars from the dealer. Instead, went to Scottsdale Muffler, and what an amazing find. Instead of thousands for a new Cat system, they did a solid repair for only $50.00. Simple weld fix, but would have cost huge at the dealer for replacement. Good as new now, and for $50.00. Come on! I have another Range Rover and a Jaguar: I will have them do all my maintenance and repair from now on. Oh, and don't let the downscale store front fool you They are real pros and honest to a T. Many thanks, Craig

I brought my 40 Ford to your shop in February 2015 on a recommendation from a friend in the PHX Over The Hill Gang and the Phoenix 40s. I had an exhaust smell and CO coming into the in the car. Very dangerous situation. The guys extended the exhaust to exactly where and how I wanted it and did it perfectly with both sides absolutely identical. Fantastic workmanship by true craftsmen and hotrodders. The price was exactly as quoted. What more could you ask for

 by DeLanda

Awesome,awesome and awesome.I went in at 11am

And was out by noon. They were quick and honest

I will refer everyone I know to Scottsdale

Muffler. I just moved here from Las Vegas, NV

And I'm really loving it. Thanks Chris and your

Crew you guys rock.

 by Fred Ramey

Awesome shop!! Guys are pros. Doesn't matter what your bring them they always have an answer.

My wife is super particular and doesn't trust mechanics at all whatsoever, however after dealing with these guy I think made a huge impression on her. Plus i get the bonus points. Lol.

We have a custom 1997 z3 beamer and it wasn't a issue that I brought in my own custom parts. They didn't even bat an eye when other companies gave me the blues or didn't sound knowledgable enough to trust custom work too.

 by Fred Ramey

These guys rocked it. Brought in my own parts because I have a wholesaler I work with on parts and many places would not do custom work or I had to buy there chinese crapshack parts.

Family owned. Got to shake the owners hand and delt with him directly and his son did the work.

Do yourself a favor don't mess with Midas or any of these chain places.

Support your local guy!

 by Rick

I was referred to these guys buy a friend who said they are the best and I now can tell you these guys are the best! very excellent work! thanks Fred, you did an outstanding job on my hot rod truck.

Don't even know where to start!! I ran over a piece of someones exhaust!!!! I messed my mustang up so badly I was afraid to even limp it home. I was referred to Scottsdale Muffler by a friend. As soon as I told them the type of vehicle I had and described what happened.....the gentleman on the phone had a good idea of what I had damaged. My husband took the car in and had the work done. They had guessed the damage correctly....the quote was accurate!!!! I don't know how he knew that! My husband is very picky.....he was very satisfied! Nice old school family atmosphere that you don't find anymore. I highly recommend them for any auto work you need. I needed BOTH my headers welded as well as my differential seal replaced. They did it all in a timely manner. The price was unbeatable. They saved me sooooo much money as I thought I would have to buy new ones. Drove my Mustang today and it ran like a champ! Thank you to Scottsdale Muffler

I went in this week via multiple referrals from Copper State Cruisers (Land Cruiser club I'm in) as well as a buddy who drives an older Pontiac (iron sled). I can't say enough how glad I am that I made the call and dropped my truck off with Fred.

I'd been considering several "bolt on" options (Bosal, EMS) as found thru the 4x4 forum I spend most of my time on. I was more interested in actually sitting down and talking to someone vs. reading about possibilities online and am damn glad I did. 10 minutes spent talking with Fred was 100X better than where I was headed with this project and when all's said-and-done, my exhaust is TERRIFIC and I feel this is the best money spent in a long time (this was a BETTER price than if I had ordered parts....and I would have been installing on my own!).

I'm a new customer who will be a repeat customer if/when ever in need again. Do not hesitate to use these guys, I can't emphasize that enough.

take care....

 by Toni Parks

I called these guys based on the reviews on Yelp- which frankly sounded too good to be true. Thanks Yelpers! Scottsdale Muffler and Automotive really is as great as you said! I needed my muffler and tailpipe replaced. I dropped the vehicle off before they opened in the morning. They called me with an estimate within a couple hours of opening and the price was awesome and much lower than I expected. They had the vehicle ready for pick up by the end of the day and...here's the best part ----***** THEY CHARGED ME EXACTLY WHAT THEY SAID!***** I have lots of work to be done on my vehicles and I'll be going back Thanks you guys!

 by Eric

Beautiful workmanship on my Classic 57 Chevy. Very professional and detail orentated. I would recomend Scottsdale Muffler to all my friends if they want quality at a fair price.

 by Tom Spresser

Most honest and trustworthy auto mechanic I know! Fast professional service with a smile! Thanks for everything guys!!!

 by Lorri Murray

Thank you so much Scottsdale Muffler for replacing all the mufflers on another one of our vehicles. You guys are the best!

 by Dean Taylor

I'm happy that I choose you to diagnose and replace the thermostat in my vehicle. I would recommend your shop to anyone. Thanks for being helpful in answering my questions.

 by Leslie Gutschow

First went to the dealer had a bend in my exhaust pipe which was resonating into the cabin. The dealer said it would cost 1400$ to replace because it required a new exhaust pipe. Took it to these guys and they were able to fix it for $40, as it was a simple bend nothing to fancy. Great service, and down to earth guys. I'll def come to them again.

 by Mike D

These guys are VERY good at what they do. No stupid auto repair games - they tell you what a job will take, how much time, and a cost estimate. Then they meet it. Recommended!

 by Lori Murray

Scottsdale Muffler has been maintaining the performance of our vehicles for a number of years. They are the only shop I trust to work with my vehicles.

 by Chuck Murray

I use Scottsdale Muffler for both my personal vehicles and vehicles of customers that are needing Mufflers or Catalytic Converters for their cars since the shop I work for does not provide those services. Scottsdale Muffler is trustworthy and gets the job done right the first time. They also do amazing custom exhaust work.

 by Amy

Scottsdale Muffler and Automotive ROCKS! Great service at a great price! I highly recommend!

 by Robert Judge

I just had Chris and Chris Jr. Do some custom exhaust work on my 2009 Cadillac CTS-V. Very happy with their work! Their family has been doing exhaust work in the Phoenix area for 50+ years and they are the choice for many repair shops so you know they are good.

 by Chuck Murray

Scottsdale Muffler has always been the only business to work on any of our family vehicles. We just do not trust in anyone else. They give top of the line quality and are very reasonable in price. Thanks for many years of great quality work.

 by Sean Seeger

Brought my FZR600 to Chris with an exhaust that was never intended for my bike. Stainless steel pipes aren't supposed to be cut/flared he said. Fortunately the normal rules don't apply to talented mechanics. Check the vid! Thanks Chris!

 by Joshua Jacoby

Great service, they really did an awesome job! My car is running like new, for far less than the other mechanic had quoted me!

4/22/2016 – As someone who knows little about car repair, I’m often apprehensive whenever my car needs service. Recently I had a problem with my muffler and the dealer told me to take it to Scottsdale Muffler & Automotive. I called and was able to get an early morning appointment the next day. I was out in less than 45 minutes and for what I considered was an extremely fair price. I am definitely going to take my car to them the next time it needs service because they don’t just do mufflers. Everyone there was extremely nice and I am very very happy with their service. I highly recommend them.

3/1/2016 – I had a friend who cherishes his bmw z3 tell me about this place. I took in my 2011 mark 6 Jetta to have it straight piped from the cat. I was astounded by the level of professionalism and curtesy that I saw in the staff I interacted with. Not to mention how great of a job they did and how quick they performed it. One major thing that stood out to me was Chris’s sheer honestly. I as originally quoted $250 for the service over the phone, but once he saw underneath my car, he immediately let me know that it was an easier job than expected and readjusted my price accordingly. Normal shops would not have done that.

If you are looking for a quality shop, astounding service, honesty, and just an overall great experience, please give this shop some serious consideration.

2/8/2016 – I have been in the car biz for a long time. I have used Chris, Paul and the boys at SDM many times and I am usually bringing them something that requires a very custom solution. There is no better craftsman in this business in Arizona.

1/13/2016 – Did an awesome job installing tail pipes and tips on my 68 Camaro.  
Monday was my only day off to get this done. I called them at 8am Monday morning and they were able to get me in.  I hung out for about an hour and was down the road.
Very fair price and the pipe’s look and sound great.

7/1/2015 – Part of my 3 piece exhaust fell off on the highway and I was afraid that fixing it was going to be a major headache. Called them and they were able to make an appointment within hours. The owner is a super nice guy and they finished the job in an hour. I was expecting a $300 repair but it came in under $100. Don’t normally write reviews but I was so happy with the service, I really had to. A+

3/11/2015- Great shop. Very fast service and willing to answer all questions. They are very affordable and I would highly recommend them. They completed my exhaust system by matching up the turbo downpipe to the cat back exhaust and removed all rattles and leaks. Thank you Chris!
