"This is one of the finest muffler shops in the San Diego area. I made the mistake of going to another muffler shop to get some mufflers welded on. I brought an X-pipe over to have welded on and these guys took care of me. They gave me their brutal honesty of how bad the mufflers were done and fixed them without any problems. Their shop has everything and more to get the job done. If you call and its a busy signal, keep trying. Don't make the same mistake I did and settle for less because less than perfect is the work you'll get."
"The crew at Andy's Muffler Service are fantastic. I had an issue with my 2003 VW beetle and wasn't sure what was wrong. I had other mechanics tell that I may need an entire new exhaust system put into my car and then I was recommended to Andy's Muffler Service. They could have easily taken advantage of me and charged me to replace anything on the exhaust system. Instead, they told me the problem was a simple flex tube repair and it saved me a lot of money. The car runs great with no problems now. If you want honest, quality service, please check out Andy's Muffler Service!"
"Andy's work is fantastic - he's done all of the exhaust work on my vehicles. I always recommend this shop for anyone looking for custom exhaust systems, dual exhaust systems, or even exhaust repair work."
"Andy provides excellent work along with outstanding service. He was able to perform a quality install, in great time, at short notice! He communicated details and expectations well and managed time and the project superbly. I️ couldn’t be happier with the quality of the work on my new Mustang and Exhaust. Definitely call Andy for you exhaust needs!"
"I recently found that our 2002 Chevy Impala had a widely known "lack of acceleration/power" issue that is traced to clogged Catalytic Converter (NO check engine light). Lee's Automotive in Mission Gorge (ALWAYS trustworthy and fair) let me know they could not replace the Catalytic Converter. I found Andy's service on Google with strong positive reviews and took a chance. Andy replaced the Catalytic Converter himself, showed me how it was clogged (compared to new) and did it in a few hours at a VERY FAIR price. Very impressed with his pro-client communications style and fair dealings. He worked at another muffler shop in Kearny Mesa for over a decade and has his own shop now in Mission Gorge for over a year. I was so pleased I also had him replace front & rear clogged O2 sensors that Andy also recommended. Again VERY fair an did the job in an hour when I arrived. Highly recommend Andy if you want a fair and honest repair!"
"I needed something simple welded on my exhaust and i needed it quick (smog test). The first shop i stopped by first argued they needed a diagnostic fee and had a min welding charge of $90...so a minimum of $160 just to start. Well it pays to shop around. I called Andy's number after seeing his reviews here, nice guy! Andy said, "Bring it over right now and worst case scenario I'll charge you $45." A man of his word, he welded up what i needed and it only cost me $40! I just might have to have this guy put an exhaust on my other truck.
Had to have a handful of exhaust parts replaced as well as my catalytic converter...the smog shop's neighbor quoted $900+tax. So I called Andy and again, a man of his word he saved me $350 AND actually fixed a few other things along the way. I will be a loyal customer to this guy, he takes care of his customers and runs a no BS business. I highly recommend you call him before you go anywhere else."
"Installed exhaust very quickly and is very detailed at getting the perfect fitment. Andy is very honest and treats customers like real people, which is hard to come by. Definitely will be a return customer."
"Andy is awesome! The quality of work he does is incomparable. I will definitely come back to get more work done. He helped me with a custom axle back exhaust on my Mustang GT. Couldn’t be happier."
"Great prompt service. Andy is honest and a straight forward hands down best price and work guaranteed. Will return for muffler work again if needed."
"Great experience, told him what I wanted and he gave me options at a reasonable price. Very happy with my experience"
"Andy's work is amazing.Thanks Andy for fixing my muffler, I will be referring all my friends and family to you your the best!!"
"My experience at Andy's was excellent, I was very happy with the work and service."
"Great price.. Great service.. Andy's a cool dude!"
"Great price! Excellent craftsmanship! Andy is a pleasure to deal with."
"Andy is a GREAT guy. I had him install a single side dump flowmaster exhaust on my 2018 GMC Sierra and damn it sounds good now. The stock exhaust makes these trucks sound like a stock civic so it was a must. I watched Andy work and he knows what he's doin. His welds are GREAT and he knows what he's talking about. I couldn't believe the price, I definitely got more then I paid for. He takes care of our military guys. If you need any exhaust work CALL him and you won't regret it."
"I used to go to a shop in Clairmont all the time for exhaust and stuff done. Now Andy has his own shop and still does excellent work. If you need it done right you gotta hit him up. The welds are clean and his shop is well organized. It's not often these days you find a person that stands by their work. If the customer isn't happy he will try to make it work."
"Andy fabbed up a custom straight pipe for my 2017 VW ALLTRACK, paired up with an APR downpipe. It's def a sporty sound and when you wanna get on it, that's when it sounds best! He's done a couple revisions with my exhaust to maintain its performance and durability the last couple months. I couldn't recommend a better tech for exhausts than Andy! He's personal and will help you achieve something better than what you expect! Thanks for all your hard work and dedication Andy"
"Wow such great customer service and quality of work! Andy did an amazing job on my 2017 Toyota Tundra he replaced my stock muffler with a Magnaflow muffler. The pictures of the work speak for themselves, I'm a very picky person when it comes to work being done on my vehicles and Andy knocked it out of the park. Don't hesitate to do business with him. Thanks again Andy!"
"Came in on a Sunday, did great work, charged a fair price, friendly guy in an easy to find location. What else is there to say...just go here and give the guy your business. You won't regret it. Thanks Andy!"
"This review is long overdue. Andy did a complete rebuilt of my '65 Ford Thunderbird's exhaust system from the manifold on back. His work is top-notch -- super clean and built to last. The system looks and sounds amazing. I'm pretty picky about doing work on my car, and I'd bring it back to Andy any day. Beyond that, Andy is just a good dude, and his shop is a great place to sit and talk cars, welding, etc. Highly recommend."
"Excellent work, he went over a lot of different options with me on how I could save money and what type of sound I wanted for my 71 Chevy chevelle. I even received a follow up call the next day to see how everything was going. Stand up guy honest and I strongly recommend his shop for any muffler work you need done. Thanks Andy!!!"
"Great to see that Andy lives up to his stellar Yelp reputation. The grocery-getter needed some 3" exhaust love and Andy took the afternoon to get it dialed in just right. Not a finer bead to be found and his attention to detail would make a submarine welder jealous. The best part is that he does the right thing for the right reason and not necessarily in the best interest of his bottom line so rest assured you're getting great work for an exceptionally reasonable rate."
"Andy is a very down to earth person and will help you out any way he can. He worked with me and squeezed me in his tight schedule and had me come in on a Sunday! His work is quick and professional; he definitely knows what he's doing. I used Yelp's system to get quotes at different shops and he always replies within an hour if not minutes. He charged a very reasonable rate as well compared to everywhere else. I had a Roush axelback exhaust installed on my 2017 Mustang GT; I was in and out within half an hour. Give him a call or shoot him a message through Yelp, come in and hang out while you watch a master at work. Thank you Andy! I'll definitely will be back for my other projects!"
"Took my car to swap out the old exhaust to a aftermarket exhaust. It not no expensive set up. So I knew there was going to be problems. Y pipe was mis-algin and mid pipe was same. Andy made it work! Just cut and weld. Would recommend him to all my friends and family.!!! Hella friendly dude! Talkative and funny. HE beat any prices in San Diego I guarantee u guys"
"Andy is the man, he doesn't up sell you, he gives you what you need, honest and solid work. I go to him for all my welding/exhaust needs. Definitely hit him up and check out his prices for what you need done."
"Came here to get resonators installed on my Lexus to reduce drone in the cabin. Andy was really nice and helpful! Despite being really busy, Andy took time on Sunday to get the resonators installed within the same hour I called. Best of all, the end result was a great exhaust note (no more drone) and an awesome price. Highly recommend coming to this shop if you need any exhaust work done."
"Simple, no hassle service. I requested 8 quotes from various places around town, and this was one of only two places that gave me a straight forward answer without trying to sell me more work or act as if they can't give me an estimate without looking at my vehicle. Great guy, was able to replace one of my catalytic converters on a Saturday so I didn't have to take time off work. Would definitely recommend this place if you need exhaust work."
"Andy is incredibly knowledgeable and has great advice. Can't say enough good things about him. I recommend him to anyone who needs exhaust work to see him. You will be beyond pleased with the quality of his work."
"Great guy. Great work. Great price. Very skillful. Always get it right the first time. Ill recommend him to everyone in san diego. Keep up the great work Andy!"
"Andy was a real cool guy! Very knowledgable and personable! No one was at the shop when i got there, so he put my 4runner on the lift right away. We went under the car and he walked me through exactly what he was gonna do. After discussing for maybe about 10-15 minutes, he gave me a quote and told me he'd be done in about 30 minutes. Suggested some spots to get breakfast and even let me use his personal car to get there while he worked on mine. I highly recommend this shop! My 4runner finally sounds as good as it looks!"
"The service was at its best, Andy was very polite and direct to fix the problem and serviced my classic 64 impalaa and did an amazing job"
"Andy is one cool dude. Awesome work at a great price. A trustworthy veteran owned shop."
"As a mechanic, I recognize quality work done by a skilled craftsman. Andy is not only a craftsman, he is an artist. He cut out some poor quality work that had been done by a different mechanic, installed the new parts, and the whole thing looked like a piece of art. The workmanship was exemplary. He also charged a very reasonable fee for the small job (installing a Catalytic Converter, that I purchased at a parts store) In fact, after the modest estimate he gave me, I was amazed at the quantity of work he did, going above and beyond, to assure the job was done right. I got more than I paid for. This guy is the best."
"Just the Best in the business!!! Andy has been only guy that has done any exhaust work on any of my cars since 1995. No gimmicks, no games, just good business! Does not try to up sale you on Crap you don't need, just gives you real advice and good results if you listen. Thanks Andy for everything over the years. Try him! You will be Extremely Satisfied!"
"Nice guy, fair prices, quick service, and great quality of work. Definitely will be back."
"Quick service, very reasonably priced. I brought in my brand new 18' Tacoma to get a Flowmaster 40 series exhaust dumped under the bottom of my bed. See attached pics. Clean work, and only took an hour! Good job Andy!"
"Andy installed an after market Cat-back system on my sons 97 Ford Probe. He did awesome work, took care with our vehicle and explained everything, excellent pricing and professionalism. The car sounds great! Thanks Andy!"
"Just had some quick exhaust work done. I am very happy with the results! He was very quick to accommodate me, pleasant to work with and had great workmanship!"
"Thanks! Had my Jeep in and out within an hour and was professional in his opinions and didn't upsell me on anything. Helped get me SMOG ready. Thanks again for everything."
"All I got to say is that Andy . He did an awesome job on my Ford Explorer sport . Andy had my old muffler off and my new on in about 40 mins or less . I know where to take my vehicles to for any kind of muffler work on me and my wife vehicles."
"Super fast and friendly service! very reasonable pricing and excellent quality of work! Would definitely recommend going here for any exhaust work needed."
"Great shop! The owner is incredibly friendly and does awesome work. I went in to get a small repair on my exhaust done and my car was in and out in no time. Great prices too! I will definitely be coming back to get work done here. I highly recommend this shop!"
"Go to Andy for your muffler needs he does catalytic converters misc welding jobs he's good reasonable and really nice! Support an up and coming business you won't be disappointed! I've brought several different items to him and have been impressed everytime!"
"Great shop, great prices, fast service, and good customer service. I wanted to make my truck sound a bit more aggressive and Andy got it done in under an hour. I was also being pretty annoying by trying to poke at my truck while it was no the lift and he was pretty tactful when telling me to stop. Lol!! This is my exhaust shop now, I'll be back."
"Really nice owner . Had some exhaust work done on my BMW M5 . Really good quality & extremely quick as well . I was in and out in about a hour or so . I will be going back for more work that's forsure ."
"I recently went to Andy to fix my muffler. He told me it needed to be completely replaced, which bummed me out. However, Andy not only fixed it that same day but it was priced much lower than I expected. I also needed a new catalytic converter, and Andy again fixed it the same day I brought my car in and at an affordable price. This guy was incredibly personable, polite, and took a genuine interest in me and my car. He does good work and takes pride in his shop. Would definitely recommend to anyone with muffler, exhaust, catalytic converter, etc. problems."
"Professional work at a good price. This guy knows his stuff. Andy will have you in and out in no time!"
"this is a veteran owned small business and andy is an honest, transparent, good natured, and hard working individual. ***call him and you will understand my position from the moment you talk with him!!!*** he provided excellent customer service and saved me time and money. what else could you want???"
"Would recommend to anybody who is looking for custom exhaust work to come here. Great prices and even better customer service. Came to get my resonator deleted out of my mazdaspeed 3 and while some places tried to charge me 150, which is ridiculous. Andy did it for me for 60 which is what should be. Will definitely come back here in the future!"
"Great service here. My exhaust was getting extremely loud, and besides the noise it also affected the performance of my car. My close friend recommended me to Andy's and he diagnosed the issue gave me a call and a fair quote, and my car is sounding and running better than ever. His customer service was outstanding and that is hard to find now a days."
"Just found andy's muffler service on yelp and he replaced a catalytic converter for my 02 Mitsubishi lancer and im very satisfied and recommend this shop to anyone needing exhaust work done at a good price."
"I had the pleasure of meeting this guy, and I gotta say he did an awesome fucking job! I'm not from San Diego but I would definitely let this person work on my truck again, and he gave me a good price for good work. He's also a pretty cool dude, real down to earth. If you're looking for muffler service, this would be the person to call."
