OK, just got a muffler done at the shop. Paid $70 for 89 Honda Civic universal muffler. Parts $20 plus $1.65 tax, labor $48. The muffler wasn't a perfect match for car, so the welding job from the car's pipe to the muffler was a bit rough. Out from the muffler, they needed to weld another pipe. This one was worse. The weld wasn't complete around the circumference of the pipe, so now I have water leaking out of it. Naturally there will be water coming out of the pipe due to the combustion process in the engine, so it's not a big deal. But still, I had hoped they would've done a better job. May bring it back to them to seal it up.
Bottom line, if you're in a pinch, go ahead and bring it to them. This is the first muffler shop I've been to and it's nearby my work. However, I'd prob look around for another place next time.
