Learning the Basics: The Emissions System

A Miracle of Precision When you stop to think about it, a car is quite the machine. Like a symphony made up of different instruments, all playing in harmony, your vehicle is a marvel of A-to-B-to-C processes that both work independently and in tandem with one another while also starting, finishing, and starting the loop all over again. Perhaps there is no better display of this than in your vehicle’s emissions system. From the [...]

Essential Roadside Signs Every Car Owner Should Know

Every club, every experience, every distinction, comes with its own special set of terminology, and driving is no exception. The driver’s license, in fact, doesn’t just indicate that someone has been granted permission to drive based on how well they operate a car, but also on how well they understand the special lingo that goes along with that responsibility.  “Hey, I didn’t learn any special words or phrases before I took my driving test,” [...]

The Wheels of Innovation

The story of human development is the story of innovation, creating something new from something old, whether that be an old idea or an old invention. Civilizations that weren’t able to innovate past their trials, (or at least past their competitors), found themselves thrust into dark ages and — at the very worst — extinction. At Master Muffler, we are drawn to man’s spirit of progress, manifesting spiritually as a dream and physically as [...]

No Hassle Auto Care

With so many different auto care garages in operation, customers will naturally be drawn to the one that fills certain particular criteria, namely the convenience of the garage’s location, the fairness of the charged price, the knowledge of the staff, and the trust that no “funny business” is trying to be worked over on them. At Master Muffler, we recognize that each of these metrics is important both individually and as a whole and [...]

In the automotive industry, significant leaps have been made to innovate on electric and hybrid vehicles with a more eco-friendly design. This isn’t necessarily a new trend, however.

What Makes a Good Mechanic

In many ways, the family car is more than a vehicle; it’s a tool for compromise between strict parents and their eager teenagers; it’s a symbol of freedom, something that will carry the family in a forward direction, both literally and figuratively; it’s an instrument to help provide for the family by taking parents to work, and then to the grocery store, and then home; it’s a learning opportunity to teach kids responsibility, both [...]

What Makes a Car Good in the Snow?

According to the Department of Transportation, over 70 percent of the nation’s roads are located in snowy regions. Because of this, more than 116,800 people per year are injured in vehicle crashes due to snowy road conditions while millions of dollars are spent to repair damage due to the same. Although some of these figures are a result of driver negligence or poor winter driving habits, it is safe to assume that, at least [...]
