On October 4, 2010, I went to Meineke in Columbia, SC on Hardscrabble Rd for a new battery on an 05 Honda Accord. They quoted a price of $266 on a new battery and installation.
I repeated the price to the clerk and asked, "Are you sure that the battery on this car is $179? Why am I being charged that much for labor?" I knew it was a rip off so I left and had it done at Wal-Mart for $73.69. I want everyone to know so that it does not happen to your mother, sister, daughter, or wife.
I felt as if my intelligence was really being insulted and I was tested being a single female. BEWARE!!!
