Quality Discount Mufflers
Horrible work. I'm very disappointed in the work! The welds are unacceptable including the bracket that was made.

Quality Discount Mufflers
On Tuesday February 7th, 2017 at approximately 4:56 p.m. I called Quality Discount Mufflers and spoke to a gentleman named Ed. I explained to him that my son and I were calling a few muffler shops to have my son's 1989 Pontiac Firebird Muffler repaired. That it was hanging lower than usual on the driver's side. I asked Ed if this is something he could look at he said of course he could and asked if my son could bring the Firebird to him right away. I said yes of course but what time do you close today, Ed said we close at 5:30 but it was a minor job and he would get my son's car in and out before 5:30. My son then drove to Quality Discount Mufflers, about 10 minutes away, and met with Ed. Ed quickly found that it was a broken bracket on the driver's side of the muffler and fixed it within minutes and at a very reasonable rate. Ed was right he was able to diagnose, fix and close his business on time. We were very grateful for his professionalism and helpfulness on this Old School 1989 Firebird. Ed was able to close on time leaving behind a very satisfied customer.We will surly recommend this Muffler shop to family and friends and will return if necessary with other muffler issues on any of our other cars.Thank you Quality Discount Muffler and Ed.Old School Firebird owner, Tyler D.

Pyramid Automotive Inc
They are not equipped to handle modern vehicles with aluminum engines. I paid $850 to have this work done. Cleaned: Block, oil pan, valve cover and timing cover. Had to finish cleaning the Valve and trimming cover at home. Mic and polish crank: Polish, absolutely not. I was told that scratches in the direction of rotation are ok and may make things worse if made smooth. Really!!! Installed balance shaft bearings: they screwed up the first set and had to buy anther for a second try. Complete rebuild of cylinder head: this was the reason the engine was rebuilt. #4 cyl exhaust valve burnt. Their $475 price does not include any parts or gaskets, not even the valve stem seals. I had to polished the cams at home. Engine was re-assembled. Ran good for 3k miles. Compression was low on 3 and 4. leak down test failed on #3 intake valve. Removed head again and pulled some valves to find the worst valve job I have ever seen. I took the head back and they recut the valves and seats by hand. BY HAND. An aluminum head must be cut with a machine especially when you change valve seats. I had to pay for the head bolts and gaskets the second time. I took the head home and did a leak test with water before I installed it. 3 valves were leaking. I called back and they said bring it in and we will do it again. I said no thanks, I'll take it to your competitor. It was not until a letter and phone call to the owner that they offered to pay for my 2nd set of head parts. Clearwater cylinder head did a perfect professional job using a very expensive computerized cutting machine. I saved a valve to show how bad their cuts where. A Valve and seat should have a .030 to .040 matting surface after the cut, pyramids cuts were .010 at best and .002 in some places. I payed CCH $400 to Save my head & that included 10 new beefier that factory exhaust valves with an explanation for why the valves fail. Pyramid was a joke.

I am updating my review. I am from KY and only dealt with Scott by phone. In 2011, by phone he purchased a car from me for salvage. In good faith, I trusted that he would pay me even though I only had his word by phone. I never saw a dime. I left a review in 2012, which is still on this board. I saw a review by Scott himself afterward and wanted to update mine, so people will be aware that I dealt with him only. I know of no other people at Independent Salvage or Viper Motors as I only dealt with Scott. He screwed me. Nobody else in that business did. Sounds like Viper is an appropriate name.

TERRIBLE AND UNSAFE BUSINESS! I was being helped by the sales manager Lenny Freeman 3 and was rushed and spoke to very snide. When he gave me break pads that were incorrect for my truck(which was wrong in the system also when we checked) He then tried to give me break pads for a 2500 instead of 1500 because they "Looked" similar! When I told him that wasn't a good idea he then got snide with me. I simply asked for my money back and will take my business else where so that I can receive parts that will not put my family and I in danger. There are 2 other auto part stores locally, I would suggest going to one of them first!

What a liar. As you can see Scott is trying to raise his rating by posting comments after people he has ripped off complained.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
