Took my 1937 Buick to Meineke Muffler of Middletown, Ct. on 11-01-2010 Quoted a price of $184 to replace front pipe.
Would be done in 1 1/2 hours. I was there 5. I see the technician wailing on the bottom of the car and in engine compartment with big hammer. I get the car the exhaust falls apart on the road.
I open the hood to see the manifold smashed and doped up with furnace cement that was dribbled all over the fender staining the paint. I call and immediately return. I show the manager a great b.s. artist the damages.
He says will make all well again and weld up the manifold to make it right. He then makes excuses the part was warped. Also promises a full refund. I stand in the cold another 3 hours while they work on other cars of other people as they come in.
They finish my car at 9pm that night! Give me a receipt stating zero charges. By the time I get home the pipes fall off in the street again and my credit card never credited the money refund as promised. I call to inquire and received veiled threats they do as they please and I best not contact them anymore!
Master Card is coming to my rescue, my attorney is informed Ct. DMV is going to get an ear full.
