Meineke Car Care Center ripoff Canton Ohio
*General Comment: Can't be done successfully........
*Consumer Suggestion: RE:Air Conditioning
CAN YOU SAY CON-ARTISTS??? Be careful don't let them rip you off like they TRIED to do me. I took my 1998 Plymoth Voyager in for an oil change. They stipped my drain plug out. Now my oil pan is shot (so they say). I need to get a new oil pan and he said it would cost $278 to repair.
I had no problem with the oil at all untill I took it to Meineke for a regular scheduled oil change. Now I need a whole new oil pan and they refuse to do anything about it, but try to place blame on someone else. Said the oil pans just go bad alot in Plymoth Voyagers. My last car was a Plymoth Voyager. Had no problems with it's oil pan. It took they over an hour just to change the oil. I know it don't take but 15 mins to change oil.
Maybe because they were trying to fix the problem they had created. They even went to the auto parts store and Bought me a "tempoary oil plug" just till I can get a new oil pan. If they did not feel it was their fault why would they be so kind as to spend their money to by the tempoary oil plug??
I have reported this to the BBB. To find out they have 2 more BBB complaints just with in the past 12 months. UPDATE ........ 3days later I took my car in to be repaied (3 days after they told me it would be $278 to put a new oil pan on and that thats what I needed done) I had my van repaired at a real car garage It cost $37.25. Big diffrence. I will not ever go back to this place ever again.
They tried to take advantage of me and rip me off. Sorry Meineke this chick is just too smart. To be taken advantage of. You guys are either really ignorant or just money hungry.Why else would you tell me I had to spend $278 to fix it when I got it fixed for $37.25? Probley cause you thought it was going to be $278 added to your pocket.WRONG!!!! and hopfully when other people see this they won't have you tring to rip them off too.
2 Months later:
My grandmas friend took his car to the exact same Meineke to have freeon added to the AC. They told him he should replace it with a new kind of AC he let them do the work and charged him over $100 to do so (not knowing about the problems I had 2 months eailer with this company). By the time this man in his 80's dying of cancer got home his cars AC was still not working.
He took it back to Meineke and they told him that somthing was wrong with his car where it would coast over $600 to fix it so he could have AC. When they should have seen this before they went and coverted his system to a "new kind of AC" if they would have just added freeon like the man wanted it would have only been around $50 to $100. But of course that was less money for Meineke to put into their pockets so they had to try to rip an old man off, the same way they tried to rip me off.
This means war I will do what ever it takes to make sure that everyone knows what a rip off this place is. These people have no heart what so ever. And just wait for people to come into their office to try to take advatage of them. So if you go there for a minor repair no matter how little expect for "something to be wrong with your car" and expect to pay a high price to fix it. Trust me the only thing that was wrong with mine and this guys car was the jack a**es working on it.
