Great work, fast and amazingly cheap. This is not a spic-and-span hospital of a shop, nothing like the national muffler chains, it's a dusty concrete-block warehouse. The sort of shop where they know how to cobble things together and weld them. The sort of shop where they say "drive it in the door and onto the lift" (they did give me hand signals). I had a broken exhaust pipe, and it turns out, a broken exhaust manifold. None of the parts places had the manifold or would even order it (it's a 15 year old car), Midas said "we can't fix it". Economy suggested I get and bring in a junkyard part (turned out only one junkyard in the metro area had one). The entire job (junkyard part, installation, and welding the broken pipe back together) cost less than a minor repair at a chain muffler place. My mechanic (a one-man shop that's well rated here) said this is where he sends people when he's backed up (which is most of the time), and that everyone seems satisfied (and says that Economy Muffler has the same interior decorator as his shop). The neighborhood is safe enough (it's on the main drag between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul), though suburbanites might feel nervous because it's a little run down and the people might look a little different. They take cards, and I'm sure cash, but no checks.
