About Us

A Reputation Years in the Making

American Brake and Muffler Shop was started in 1975. Back then it was known as Alex’s Standard and was a service center as well as a gas station. In 1985, we moved to our current location at 3102 W. Ridge Road Gary, Indiana 46408 and became American Brake and Muffler Shop. Now we’ve expanded and have added our newest location, American Complete Auto Repair, located at 9275 Taft St, Merrillville, IN 46410. We are a family-owned business and are on our third generation of hardworking, honest, and fair operators servicing Crown Point and Merrillville, IN.

We can handle any repair, big or small. We employ ASE certified technicians, and have over 100 years combined experience! We are open Monday through Saturday and offer free towing as well. We like to think of ourselves as a family; employees and customers alike. We offer shuttle service and senior citizen discounts. If you need additional references, ask your grandparents; they probably came to us before! Thank you for helping make our business a success.
