NEVER AGAIN!! I took my heavy duty work truck in because it had been leaking brake fluid. I own my own business and everyday this truck is out of service I lose money. The starting quote was $186.00 and 4 hours labor for pads and shoes for the rear brakes. I was told the work would only take 1 day. After 2 days of calling about the vehicle I learned they didn't have the right tool at the shop to take off the hubs, they were going to "borrow" it. I was told by the owner BOB parts have been ordered and the next day they would start working on it. That evening BOB called and said he couldn't get the parts and it would be cheaper and faster if I started looking myself. The next day we went to Meineke picked up the drum went to the parts store, bought the drum and a seal that was supposed to be ordered 3 days previous by him. They told us what part we needed and we bought the part ourselves. Took the drum back to Meineke and it ended up being the wrong size. I had to take the drum back to the parts store and the seal because it wasn't needed. Then I went to the junk yard bought the correct size drum took it back to Meineke. I was told everything should be put back togeather in a few hours. I finally called them at 5:55 (they close at 6:00) to see if it was done. I was told it was put back togeather, but they were looking for pads for the front brakes because it was leaking brake fluid. I TOOK MY VEHICLE IN BECAUSE IT WAS LEAKING BRAKE FLUID!!! I told them I no longer wanted them to work on my vehicle, they hadn't fixed what I had taken it in for. A long story short the owner BOB blamed me for the wear on the drum and it was my fault the hubs were so hard to take off. He wrote me a letter stating, "I asked for my vehicle back before he could do a thorough inspection and he had ran out of time." During this we squabbled over the price, he wanted $630.00. I told him that wasnt the original estimate and I did all the running around and bought my own parts. We agreed on $540.41. It took 5 days longer than I was told and the leak is still not fixed. I will be taking my vehicle somewhere else and I will NEVER go back to Meineke!!!!!!!!!!

Run like a hungry lion is chasing you! Please read! I took my car to Meineke's because of a noise coming from back of my car. David ( The owner) and the office manger seemed nice until I understood why they have that smiley face! My car needed new brake pads, new rotors in the rear and new calipers in the front. The starting quote was $1100! after half an hour negotiating he agreed to do the job for $880. I rented car and left my car at their shop for the night. I was shocked with the repair cost, so I started looking at the prices of my parts, guess what? the total price for those part was only $200! I called him first thing in the morning and asked him to tell me how much he was charging me for the labor, he said $200. So, He was charging me $680 for the parts!!!! He refused to show me the receipt for the parts ( other shops let you know what the cost is for your parts) and he said I am a socialist! Mechanics are supposed to charge you for the labor (which is not cheap) and a little more for purchasing your parts, but not %500!!! I canceled my repair and I had to pay him $250 for doing absolutely nothing. He has worked in different dealerships for 25 years and has a dealership attitude (charging as much as possible). He has no ethics! Do your research before getting robbed like me! I fixed the car for $300 elsewhere.

From the charming gentleman at the front counter(Billy) to the knowledgeable Manager (John), this was by far the best auto repair experience I have ever had. They never made me feel like I was a stupid girl. They spoke to me just as they did every customer I watched them interact with. The work was priced competitively and they even stayed a little late so I could get my car back after hours. I would recommend them to own grandma!

I have to say the service was great. The mechanics were wonderful they even took me out to show me what I needed. I will come back again.

Wheel hub cost from dealer $369 their price $499.99 part that they used I could have got for $205.## @ the store across the street. Or 269.00 at a store down the road. Way over priced part. The labor is also as high union employee d of which they are not.

I went to Meineke to get an alignment done on my 2001 Dodge Ram 4x4. I expected it to cost upwards of $100-$130. I called around and Meineke was the least expensive place in town at only $79.95. I scheduled an appointment and they told me it would be roughly an hour to get the alignment done. 35 minutes later I was out the door spending no more than the quoted $79.95 (No tax?! :D) They even warned me about a few other issues with the truck that I was unaware of before coming in, but they didn't pressure me to take care of the problem and pour money into their company that I didn't have. They gave me a safe time frame on when to get the other issues fixed, and the gentleman even took me in the shop and SHOWED me the problems, as opposed to most places that will tell you everything is wrong with your vehicle and fix it, then charge you $1000 when you expected to only get an alignment. I will DEFINITELY go back, and recommend them to all my friends and family. I am extremely satisfied, and the trucks alignment is working amazingly.

I am very particular about where I take my sports car to be worked on, so when I moved to Delaware, I went on the hunt for a good Car Care Center. I finally found Meineke Car Care Center. I took my 'baby' in for a service, and to have a rattle checked. I was very impressed with their knowledge, customer service, and how they ensured my vehicle was looked after. Will definitely be returning.
