Lansing Muffler Repair
We got our start working exclusively on mufflers and exhaust systems when we opened our first auto repair shop in 1972. With over 45 years of muffler experience, our team knows exhaust systems inside and out. We service all makes and models and invite you to stop by any of our locations for a free exhaust system inspection.
Exhaust systems are located on the bottom of the car, and operate at high temperatures. For these reasons, most people leave working on them to auto repair professionals who are aided by lift systems.
Free Exhaust System Inspection
We offer free exhaust inspections at all of our locations, which start with a good visual inspection of the overall exhaust system. During our inspection we're looking at the:
The difference between Mufflers and Exhaust System
The muffler is a single part of the overall exhaust system. People who don't work on cars commonly use the word "muffler" to refer to the entire "exhaust system". The exhaust system includes many parts including:

Family Owned Since 1972
Gordon Lentz opened his first auto repair shop in 1972. Trained as a mechanical engineer. His first exposure to the automotive repair business came in the early 1970's, when he was selling storage systems to muffler repair shops. He could see room for improvement in a lot of the shops he visited. He took a chance; quit his job, and invested his life savings in building his own auto service center. Today, Lentz Auto Repair is still family owned and operated, guided by the same simple mission that started over 45 years ago: “treat our customers as we would like to be treated and provide quality products at fair prices.”
Auto services are performed on non-commercial vehicles and are accompanied by a limited warranty. If a warranted part fails to perform during the time of ownership, simply return to any LENTZ USA Service Center with your receipt for repairs. Family owned and operated since 1972. Senior and student discounts available.
