Meineke Muffler is the biggest ripoff known to man, at least as bad as the political system! Took my car in for a wheel alignment, less than $100 job. They took my vehicle, kept it all day, called 4 times to my house telling my boyfriend that "this is broke", "this will leaver her on the side of the road", "that's leaking", on and on, and boyfriend said "ok" every time they told him that. After they were finished ripping him off, he had to pay them TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!! My car did NOT need those repairs, I kept regular maintenance on it at all times. So I had a sign made and taped in my car window - ask me how Meineke Muffler cost us $1200. You wouldn't believe how many people stopped me on the parking lots in town and had their own Meineke horror story. These people should not be allowed to rip us all off like this. Little old people, young people, unsuspecting boyfriends, anyone who they think they can cheat. I called their headquarters, taped my sign in my car, emailed their corporate offices, called the Farmington office repeatedly, just to let them know that I will NEVER stop trying to tell this story and keep people from going to Meineke. And guess what the boss did? Called my boyfriend to try to get him to get me to shut my mouth!! Do you believe that!? Boss didn't have the guts to call ME and tell me to shut up, he had to cry to my boyfriend. WRONG thing to do! So here I am still letting everyone know.... DON'T GO TO MEINEKE MUFFLER!!

This happens all too often there. Call the BBB. People have tried filing criminal charges at FPD over him but can't since it's civil. People also have made complaints to city hall in the past. Go check for yourself. Unreal.

They have a lousy reputation for crooked business practices. I've heard the very same thing by numerous people I personally know. "Where there is smoke there is fire" so I'm guessing with as much smoke I've heard about them by so many different unrelated people I would take my business elsewhere.

My boyfriend was not a dumbass, he was doing what he felt was taking care of me. He was taken advantage of. I know people at work who took Meineke to court for a small claim, won the case, but couldn't get Meineke to pay up. They just went on about their business, ignoring him. I went so far as to email the corporate offices AND George Foreman, who endorses Meineke, but no one answered me. Farmington store owner is an arrogant ass who seems to be able to look in the mirror no matter how he cheats and lies to people.
And anyone from "moosecock" Elvins shouldn't make a mean comment like you did, anyway. You don't know how hard my boyfriend works and how well he takes care of the ones he loves. He's a good man.

Went to Meineke few months ago to get used tires on my car. Big mistake! Sam said I didn't need them, but needed 2 catalic converts, front struts, back struts. Said it was a safety hazard. I didn't know any better thought why would he lie, it's Meineke. I knew that my car needed a fuel pump and Sam said he could do it cheaper than the car dealership. And now my gas gauge doesn't work and it runs like it did before. Can't afford to take it anywere for them to drop the gas tank to see if it's a new or used one he had put in And yes I did talk to a an attorney but didn't have the $1500 for retainer and chances are he wasn't going to pay up any way if I did win the case. So it was a horrible experience going to Meineke and I won't go back.

use some of these mom and pop shops around here, people who have something to loose not these big chains that have to pay a franchise fee , you should know they will sell you any kind of crap they can to make a buck.

I agree and normally I go to the mom and pop shops. But I didn't have time to wait and thought I could get my tires and get back to work and that didn't happen.

If u are who u say u r you would have this shops franchise license removed. These scams have been going on for years and there is no doubt in my mind that corporate has not heard of these issues. It's horrible what this shop does under the Meineke name.
