This place is horrible. They are scam artist and will rip you if a heartbeat if they think they will get away with it. I didn't know much about cars when I bought my jeep which is 15 years old. Because of its age it breaks down from

I was just in at Punks Mufflers at their Vancouver location this morning 4/28/09 . I have a 1990 range rover classic. The exhaust pipe had split in 2, They had me in and out in under half and hour. Their service was great and very friendly. Thank you very much

I towed my daughter's car here twice. The first time they claimed it was a compression problem and charged her close to $100 for a diagnostic that they were supposed to do, however it doesn't appear as if one has been done. (We took it elsewhere, THEY did a diagnostic and found it needed a crank sensor) The second time, they told us the car needed a new distributor, and the part would cost $800. THIS CAR DOES NOT HAVE A DISTRIBUTOR!! When I asked them to show me the distributor, he pointed to the coil, told me how a distributor is supposed to work, etc... When I asked him if perhaps he meant the ignition coil or crank sensor, he said "no". (crank sensor and ignition coil are both available for less than $70 each and are used in this vehicle INSTEAD OF A DISTRIBUTOR) They refused to give a written estimate of the work they felt needed to be performed, and charged her another $50 for doing absolutely nothing.
I was treated like a stupid woman, even though I apparently knew more about this car than they did! My daughter was robbed in my opinion, and my time and resources were wasted. I wouldn't bring my lawnmower to this place!!!
In all of my years of working on cars, buying cars, and paying others to do the repairs that I didn't want to do myself, I have never been disrespected so completely or treated like an idiot. I felt this was based solely on my gender and am considering the appropriateness of legal action.
