Meineke Car Care Center Complaint - Fraud - work never done and was charged
SOUTH AMBOY, NEW JERSEY -- I went to meineke in South Amboy, NJ and had rotors and brakes on my 2002 Montero and was charged a very very large amt of money for services that weren't even done. The vehicle had been taken back into there shop several times because the back brakes were still grinding and I was told that it sometimes took a thousand miles to break in the brakes well one year later the problem was even worse than before and you couldn't even drive it anywhere. To top it off when I picked up my vehicle they parked it on the side of the parking lot and left the keys in it for anyone to drive off with and the doors were absolutely unlocked and when I said something to them about it he made a smart remark about it while the other 2 guys sat in the office doing nothing. I guess they figured we were from outer state and they would never hear from us again and that gave them advantage to take advantage of us. But lucky them I keep all paperwork and notes a mile long. So I then took the problem to my car dealership where I purchased the vehicle and it was found out that the back brakes were never done and the original brakes and rotors were still on the truck. I had written the company online on June 14, 2005 and got a response from them on June 15 stating they would forward the complaint to the NJ office and guess what no reply (not surprised) so I wrote them again on 07/30/05 and still no reply. Sure shows the kind of business they stand by. Deffently not there customers!
