Meineke Car Care Center
October 22, 2014

After taking my car in for a standard oil change, I left that day with thousands of dollars of damages to my car after Meineke failed to notice and/or contaminated my cars break fluid system. Pedro the owner of the shop stated that everything was fine but that he recommend a flush but never once stated that contamination had been done to my car and he released the car to me in that condition leaving me and my children's life in danger. It was less than 3 days later that my car completely broke down on me and my breaks stuck together making the car undriveable. When speaking with Pedro telling him what had happened right after I took my car into his shop he completely denied that Meineke had ever touched my breaks and there for it could not be their fault. Once Meineke was confronted by the Better Business Bureau Pedro then decides to make a statement that in fact they did check the breaks and allegedly attempted to warn me but I refused to fix the problem? of which there is no document or notes stating that I was ever told and that I refused services Meineke offered to me. On another note each one of Meineke's associates are SBCC college students without degrees?? DO NOT COME HERE. You will end up leaving with more problems then you came in with.
