These days your exhaust system is a lot more that just a muffler. It is made up of a series of pipes and componants under your car, including your muffler and catalytic converter. The main function of your exhaust system is for noise control and to route the toxic exhaust gases away from the driver and passengers.
Using the catalytic converter the exhaust system also burns and converts exhaust by products that are toxic for humans and the environment. Also heating and recylcling air before going in to your engine cylinders to be burned. Lastly your exhaust system is designed to create the correct amount of back pressure that your engine requires to improve its fuel-burning efficiency and increase performance. Key components of your exhaust system include:
Designed specifically for each car model to properly route exhaust to the back of the car.
Acts like a funnel, collecting exhaust gases from all cylinders and releasing it through a single opening. Some engines have two.
Designed to reduce the amount of harmful emissions products by transforming pollutants into water vapor and less harmful gases.
Metal container with holes, baffles, and chambers that muffles exhaust noise.
Works with the muffler to reduce noise.
Found at the back of the car, the tail pipe is designed to carry exhaust gases away from the vehicle
All components of the exhaust system are connected with a series of clamps, hangers, flanges, and gaskets.

Mike and his team are the best! My vehicle had a check engine light on, my heater was stuck on, not a good thing in FL. They quickly diagnosed the problems, communicated my options, and completed the work.
Honest, reliable and fair pricing. I will use Feldman’s for all my future auto repairs!
Fast service, fair prices and super friendly. Took our family car in for a diagnosis, and had not only the diagnosis but also the repair done in the same day! They recommended a few other things that would need to be done in the near future, but weren't pushy, like most other shops I have been to. Would definitely recommend.
Mike and the entire team at Feldman Auto Repair are the best! They are knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, and fast - everything you hope to find, but so often can’t, when you have an auto emergency. I would give them more than 5 stars if I could. I highly recommend them for all of your auto repair needs!

They are prompt in getting the information back to the client so they can make a decision. The knowledge of the techs is Top shelf. I take all of my vehicles to Mike's shop and will continue to. Best in the business!!!
First our ac didn't blow out cold, it was fixed that day at a fair price. Today our abs light was on, it was corrected right away at a great price. Now our battery light came on, they diagnosed on the spot, then repaired our defective alternator. The wait might be all day , but the end result is worth it. We have found our new mechanic, honest and fair. They also fixed our A/C taking our whole dashboard out, fixing the unit in less time then quoted and also cleaned the inside of our car. I have never had a better more honest mechanic then Feldman Auto Repair
These guys live up to the 5 stars. Had a problem with my O2 sensors in my exhaust. This was my first time there as I'm new to the area. They were very up front about everything. Showed me the computer scanner readout that pinpointed the problem and talked to me about resolutions. Ran into some complications, so they took my car over to a trusted muffler place of theirs. They drove it over and back for me! Felt like a VIP. Above and beyond service. My car has a new auto home for service. It's Feldman.
I've been bringing my 3 vehicles to Feldman Auto for a couple of years. I have found them to be honest, reliable and fairly priced. The vehicle is done when they say and they make sure that I'm completely satisfied. I highly recommend them.
These are your guys...we were traveling north and had major electrical issues on our 2004 Toyota truck. They got us in and out in less than 3 hours with an amazingly fair price. We sat in their office with our dog waiting and saw how fair and honest they spoke with everyone that came in and to each other. It’s a shop, not a fancy hangout, but the work’s right and fair!
I went to Firestone and they told me I needed new front brake pads and rear cylinders and that it would cost 850. I called Feldman and they said the same work would only cost 500. So I dropped my car off and when I came back the next day it turns out Firestone was wrong (probably lied) and my rear cylinders were fine, just needed front brakes. So Feldman was honest and it ended up only costing me 315.
WOW, is all I really need to say. Totally impressed and now have a regular mechanic. I called and got estimate for my brakes as I had serious problems. Gave me an estimate over the phone instantly. I took my car in the next day at 8 a.m and dropped it off. Came back around 9 a.m to wait on it. I went to the waiting room and was informed my car was completed and ready. 1 hour for a brake job and the estimate was pretty much dead on, due to taxes etc. By all means, use this garage! I will be going back for all my repairs!
