Beware! Mike\'s Discount Muffler on 82nd I know some of you guys have used these guys to do work on your trucks. I just wanted to pass along my pain in the ass experience. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif I had my exhaust done at Mike's shop about 6 months back with no problems. Mike told me when I got headers they would help me put them on and weld them up for free. So I called him up and asked him how much to put the headers on. He quoted me $400 (what happened to free labor) for hooker super comps, but when I told him that was more than I wanted to spend he said they'd do it for $300. I agreed, but thought this was a little weird because the super comps were $360 at Jegs. So I go down there a couple days later to put the headers on. He tells me he needs to be paid up front so he can go buy the headers (my biggest mistake). So I pay him and go do some errands. He calls me up and tells me they ran out of acetylene so it won't be done till the next day. So the next day I don't have a ride and have to take the bus from Beaverton clear across town to pick up the truck. When I get there, I look and they had put Hedman cheapies on my truck. So I go in and tell him they put Hedman headers on and he tells me "Yeah, Hedman Super Comps." Give me a break, this guy owns the exhaust shop and doesn't know Hooker makes Super Comp headers. Anyway he makes a few phone calls and tells me it will cost him $500 for the correct headers, but a deal is a deal. So I drive the truck home and hell begins. For about a month I get excuse after excuse about why they can't put them on. Sometime he'd even schedule me and I'd drive clear over from Beaverton only to get told they couldn't do it for countless reasons like, emergency gal bladder surgery, the headers didn't get there even though the day before he told me on the phone they were sitting there, they guys didn't come in to work, they were swamped, but he'd give me $100 back, etc, etc. One day it was scheduled to be done I had my dad come with me so I'd have a ride home he canceled on me yet again, but told me he'd give me a full refund and do the job after the honeymoon. This was two days before my wedding. I was trying to get the correct headers on before the wedding. So after wedding and honeymoon I call him up to finish the job. He scheduled me for the next Friday and when I go in, guess what another excuse, but he tells me come in tomorrow at 8:00am and I'll get the headers done and have your money. So I go in Saturday, weekend before last, at 8:00am and call him on my way in. He then tells me his dumbest excuse yet. He said they are locked out of the shop. Apparently someone broke in and the cops are there and to give them a couple hours. How the hell could you be locked out if someone broke in? /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Anyway I was only a mile away so I decided to drive over anyway. When I get there the shop doors are just being opened and there aren't any cops to be found. So he sees me and with a 'I'm caught in a lie look' tells me to pull into a bay. Even the install was an ordeal in itself. I only had to wait for four hours and even had to walk across the street to buy some bolts for the install. When they were finally finished with the job, you guessed it, he doesn't have enough money to do the refund right now. So as of today I've been calling him everyday trying to get my money back. Luckily I made him put it in writing the day he told me he'd refund my money. So my advise is to go elsewhere. P.S. Sorry for the long post, but be glad I didn't include every lie the bastard came up with.
