meineke econolube a 15 dollar oil change turned into a nightmare oceanside, California
*Consumer Comment: At least you got a deal on the oil change
immediately after leaving the shop my car stalled at each stop light so i took it back and they raved they did not touch the idling. i took it to my mechanic a few days later and discovered air hoses were loosened and a wire was broken in the air filter system which he fixed - he also stated my power steering was overfilled and leaking at bottom hose and my valve cover gasket was leaking i told him that there no oil in my driveway so it must be new leakage - i took it back to get my 90 dollars back for the air hoses screw up - they did not want to refund money but offered a rebate if they could fix the problems my mechanic found,
so they replaced my power steering hose and my valve cover gasket and then for some reason checked my rear brakes even removing the drums and said my rear brake cylinders were leaking showing me after pulling back the rubber cups- which was strange since my brake fluid was full when i first went there i also let them clean fuel injectors and change spark plugs - it all came to 500 dollars - afterwards i noticed my power steering leaking so i took it back several times to no avail - i then went back to my mechanic and he found that the fitting on power steering was damaged and he also changed the hose again which cost another 400 dollars.
i called meineke and they stated i would have to bring in the defective part which was returned for a core charge even though i had the receipt from my mechanic - i now am convinced that meineke deliberately power flushed my brakes to blow out the rear cylinders and power flushed my power steering to screw up the power steering pump and that they deliberately loosened my valve cover to make it leak and also loosened my air hoses since i refused a fuel filter this would cause similar problems of stalling - i dont care about the money i just want justice so this wont happen to other good folks like a cancerous disease on the country by these parasites
