Our Promise

We believe you deserve the very best. The best quality. The best service. And advice you can trust. It has been this way since The Mufflerman opened its first Canadian owned and operated location back in 1964.


All of our locations are company owned, not franchised. That means we can direct every aspect of our operation, from hiring the managers and mechanics that you deal with, to buying only the best possible products to be installed on your vehicle. We feel that the only way we can ensure your satisfaction is to have tight controls over everything that you look for.


Our policy of routinely inspecting your braking, exhaust, steering, drive train and suspension systems means that you’ll always get straight answers on exactly what the underside of your car needs, and a written estimate of precisely what it would cost to repair it. There’s no surprises at The Mufflerman, and you’ll never leave with the feeling that maybe you didn’t fully understand what we did to your car, or why we did it.


We’ve been in business since 1964. That’s given us plenty of time to figure out exactly what makes a happy customer. We’re more than just mufflers, we truly are “Your Complete Auto Service Specialists”.


All of our technicians regularly attend seminars and special training to keep up with the latest changes in techniques and technologies. Our Store Managers have extensive experience with several dedicating over 30 years to their positions. Two of these wonderful Store Managers will be retiring at the end of the year. We invite you to visit a special page on our website to recognize their contributions to the company.


As our business has grown, we have not forgotten our beginnings. Today, our friendly and knowledgeable staff continues the tradition of providing you with the best.

We guarantee you quality, service, and trust – first time … all the time. That’s our promise to you.


Our History

The Mufflerman started in 1964 as part of a larger auto centre which included mostly auto sales along with auto body repair and minor repairs on Ontario St., in Sarnia, Ontario.


Mr. John Brouwer purchased the Mufflerman name in April 1964. The business was taken to a small two bay rented shop to become Sarnia’s first exclusive muffler shop.


A few years later Mr. Brouwer purchased property on Exmouth Street in Sarnia and constructed a new four bay shop.


A second location was started in Stratford, Ontario in 1971. From there, The Mufflerman had grown to 13 locations by 1991.


Today The Mufflerman offers an extensive range of automobile services including brakes, exhausts, suspension and steering, and Drive Clean emission testing and repairs.


Had a loose manifold cover, these guys took care of it and were really professional.
