I had a wonderful experience great customer service by Allison and Seth Johnson the Store Manager he listened to my corcern and showed me the problem with my exhaust leak. I left my car over night to be repaired by 12:00 noon. I received a phone call at 9:30 letting me know my vehicle was ready. I thought I needed additional parts but Seth told me I didnt, I have found some honest technicians that do quality work. I would recommend them for any...

Terrible!! Car was dysfunctional but they initially fixed it and the owner Bill Palmer and his son Joe were alright. Then shortly after driving away the car broke down. From that point on I noticed a change in their demeanor. Irritable. Bottom line after four ALLLLL day visits the car still wasn't fixed and when I expressed my own irritation they showed their TRUE 'face'. Your wrong! GET OUT! Iucked out and paid the second bill with a Meinke...

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...

On June 11th 2016, I took my Car to Meineke on 2049 Harbor Blvd, in Costa Mesa, for a blown head-gasket, 6/!2 Sam Brogdon (G/M) and Gabby Mgr made me put $1,000 down for a rebuilt engine they ordered from Texas, they promised the engine would be there in 5 days my 1988 Toyota Celica GT would be fixed by then. They had my car until 8/31/16. Sam was fired left on 8/20/16. I was told by a top employee that Sam was fired for being on drugs (speed),....

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...

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...

They replaced the pump instead, my wife was 7 months prego at the time and very trusting. She trusted the tech and was burned out of an 800 dollar job. I tried telling the manager Chris about what happened and he basically tol me that I would need to pay another 650 or go take a hike. Love how my wife was taken advantage of just makes me want to tell everyone I know about how we were treated by meineke. Havent gone to social media yet but I...

This location replaced my AC compressor for $691 in March of 2016. 3 months later and 90 miles away, the compressor went out and rendered the vehicle undrivable. I had the vehicle towed. The bearings in the compressor went bad and the compressor had to be replaced. I did not have the vehicle towed back to MEINEKE, because there was not one for 65 miles, we were stranded in 105 degree heat with few options. We had it towed to the closest shop,...

First of all, Meineke has two specified business located numbers for that Concord, CA location, #2672 and #4379. To my understanding, they are "avoiding" direct complaints from customers like me. They want an immediate service regardless of service inspection. Once I saw the problem of the engine leak but wasn't sure so I needed their opinion but they went ahead to do the work. They charged me for 5 and half hours which I know the service can be...

Brought my car to Meinieke , colonia, new jersey. Car was towed to another repair shop for service. I was never contacted by Meinekie. Had to pay additional monies to repair my car. I should have not been charged additional fees from Meiniekie for diagnostics from Meiniekie.

In January 2016 I took my car for a transmission fluid change. The technician failed to refill the fluid resulting in damage to the transmission. Meineke's complaint department was non responsive after many attempts. I filed a complaint with the Illinois Attorney General and after many weeks Meineke's response was that not refilling the transmission fluid was not the cause of the damage. An independent transmission repair shop stated the low...
