Florida Meineke LLC219Racetrack Road Fort Walton Beach, Florida United States of America
On December 7th I drove my 98' CRV into the Meineke on Racetrack Rd in Fort Walton Beach Florida,with complaint of "engine running hot"..I was given two estimates totaling $707 for changing out power steering belt,alternator belt and compressor belt,and thermostat,and radiator with labor totaling out to $382. Being too expensive I left Meineke parking lot and drove 2 blocks to local repair shop and gave same complaint of "engine running hot" not telling them that I had just left Meineke shop...First question was "when was the last time water was put in the radiator"...having just left Meineke shop I was too embarassed to tell them that..After changing out the radiator and checking out all the belts that were said to be in good shape I paid a bill of $274 dollars for labor and parts...Now I know that Meinekeprices were high but what about the commom courtsey to put water in someone's raditor....I think thatMeineke is a Ripoff waiting to happen and I will be getting in touch with the Better Business Bureau in Fort Walton Beach and the manager of that Meineke on Race track Road.
