I had a hole in my intermediary pipe (the one between the engine and muffler) and brought in one I had bought with a replacement muffler- though the pipe ended up not fitting, Ron made an attempt to put it on there and explained clearly why my extra pipe wouldn't work. Then he repaired the existing pipe and tested its strength to make sure I wouldn't be back in a week later. Great service.

I called, and the friendly woman on the phone said I should haev it in by 4:00 so they can take care of my car. Traffic was bad, so I showed up to their shop at 4:40 on a Friday with a gaping whole in the pipe to the muffler. They happily took my car, spent the time to check out the problem and, because they didn't have the particular pipe i would have required, made one for me. All told, it took them 1/2 hour, and cost about $115, which included 3 yr warrenty. I had shopped around ahead of time by phone, and the local midas had quoted me around $150 (not sure what kind of warrenty they have). My car sounds fabulous.

My catalytic converter was recently stolen from my Toyota pickup. I had the converter replaced at an excellent shop in Oakland. Later I was reading up on the rash of catalytic converter thefts and saw that having the converter welded on might make it tougher to steal. Ron's muffler has gotten great local reviews, so I went there to see if I could get the welding done without having to make an appointment. They did the welding right there on the spot, didn't charge me, and said they give customers a price break when replacing a stolen converter (which is happening a lot). I was very impressed with the service, & the staff. If I have any muffler/exhaust problems this is where I'm taking my vehicle.

These guys went out of their way to save me money on an exhaust system repair. They made/bent the parts themselves. It was very reasonable and worked. FYI - i'm female and they talked to me as if i were an actual thinking, competent adult.
