So the people at Mieneke who replaced my exhaust system and muffler did it wrong and the whole thing needs to be replaced. *If* I still have my receipt (I'm going to have to go on a hunt tonight) I need to take a day off of work just to drive up to Philly to get my car fixed. Why can't people just fucking do it right the first time!?

Because the american work ethic has gone right down the toilet and noone takes pride in their job anymore.

Because you took it to Phila to get it fixed.

Not that I can say much since I take my car to a Phila dealership for service until the warranty runs out.

Eh, I really had no choice in the matter. My car broke down *in* philly. If I had more knowledge of which mechanics are good that would have been useful. All I had at my disposal was AAA's recommendation.

I'm actually considering whether I want to shell out another five hundred bucks to get it done a) in newark and b) right.

Because it was done by men!!! If you want it done right the first time, take it to a woman!

My mechanic is really good, but he's down here so that's just as far as Philly for you. Sad

Get a quote from the Midas by BJ's on 13. I've gotten work done there before and they are good.

Note: They may be a Meineke, I don't remember. But at least they are closer. If you have your receipt, you may be able to negotiate.

I'll have to look for the receipt .. if I can't find it tonight, and if Monroe has some kind of payment option (I'm already giving them $300 for other repairs) I think I'll just get it done here.
