I took my Lexus to National Auto for a quote on repairs, having been there before for repairs. I had noticed a developing noise that sounded like a muffler going bad, however the noise was coming from the front of the car.\r
They performed an inspection and gave me a written quote for $2,258.00 to replace the catalytic converter as that is what their inspection discovered to be the problem.\r
I took the car to Tommy and Rich at Meineke Car Care Center, 2436 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd, Clearwater, FL, 33765 (727) 799-6869, and they performed their inspection. Their inspection revealed that there was not a problem with the catalytic converter, but that the problem was actually the flex pipe near the catalytic converter.\r
Tommy and Rich replaced the Flex Pipe and also did an Oil Change for a total price, out the door, of under $225.\r
For any future issues with my car I will go to Meineke and see Tommy and Rich.
