Here is my story. A couple weeks ago I took my car 87 Mustang to Meineke to have the heater core replaced. It cost $460 and took 5 days to be completed. I was told the reason for the delay was because to reach the heater core you must go through the dash. So I waited no problem. When I got the car back I first noticed the speedometer didn’t, so I took it back to Meineke that same day and they fixed it. I took it home the second time and everything seemed fine except the way the car looked. It was trashed inside and out, I wasn’t very happy about that. The thing with my mustang is it’s a weekend car, I don’t drive it a lot, so once I got it back it was parked for about 2 weeks.
When I started to drive the car again, I went looking for some ricers to trash, and this is when I find my clutch is SLIPPING!! I have no grip to power forward; well I do but not enough to accelerate hard with. I took it back to the shop and told them about the situation and they just told me right back the clutch is going bad, and they didn’t do anything to the car… yeah right! I barley drove it since I got it back from Meineke, it wasn’t even 2 miles before I noticed the problem, they fucking did it!
I was later told by a friend that each Meineke is separately owned and they drive the customer cars home. So yeah they beat the hell out of my car!
I’m having the car repaired right now, a new clutch (spec 2), rebuild of the transmission, and a few other things done, total $1200. What a waste of money, all because of Meineke lack of control with their franchises. Meineke fucking sucks; if you care anything about your car Do Not Go To Meineke! BAH!
