BEWARE folks. This organization uses the typical bait and switch technique. My friend went in for an oil change $22.00 and ended up with a $1200 bill. They claimed the struts and tie rods were bad. Her front end was shaking intermittently so she believed them. The cost of each $150 strut was upped to $370 apiece. The labor charges high and the work was SHODDY. They left bolts loose, clamps off. The old bolts were in the front windshield, creating a terrible road hazard. WORST of all the shake wasn't even fixed. The manager was so eager to get her money they never checked the reason for the shake. It was brake calipers!!! The additional repair (done at another place) was done well and for $800.00 less than what Meineke quoted. They are a company that takes advantage of WOMEN....DO NOT GO THERE FOR ANY WORK. also charged her $70.00 for a front end alignment that wasn't done. When Damon the manager was asked for the computer printout for the front end alignment he looked like a deer the headlights "what he stammered" "We don't do that." REALLY how do you do a front end alignment without a computer. The mechanic there told my friend that the overheating engine light was going into the red because the brakes were overheating. WHAT????? Complete IDIOTS!! When the manager finally agreed to reimburse my friend $450 he only credited $150.00. So beside shoddy work and a condescending attitude toward women he is a blatant LIAR!!! PLEASE DO NOT GO THERE!!! FIND an honest neighborhood mechanic!!

Meineke - Car Repair Review from Indianapolis, Indiana

Never going there again. I brought my car in for brake replacements. I picked it up and all the lights on the dashboard were on. I told them b4 driving off. I was told it was just a sensor problem and to bring it in the next day. I took it in again and was told they were fully booked. I had to bring it in a third time. This time the mgr said it was a seperate issue and that the lights were on when they took the car. What a lie. Now in addition to the almost $900 I paid for the brakes. They want to charge another $400 to get the dashboard lights off. Poor service and I'd appreciate a resolution.

Meineke center 86th street is worst

Do not go to this place (3702 West 86th Street Indianapolis, IN 46268), the place is a complete rip off, they will charge you for parts you don't need to replace, your actual issue may or may not be fixed, next time when you come and complain they will conveniently say that this is a new problem with same symptom. Customer service is not going to help as they don't have any control over any of their centers. In fact never go to any of the meineke centers, better to go and deal with individually owned auto shop and you'd already know that everything is in owner's hand. The manager particularly at 86th street center is most rude and ill mannered old guy who doesn't have decency to accept his mistakes instead he tries to intimidate customers by saying rubbish things about the car. No Meineke for me my friends or any person who asks for reference, i will also write this review to every single reviewing website.
