Meineke Econo Lube N' Tune Complaint - Wrong oil filter ruined engine
MERIDIAN, IDAHO -- Meineke Econo Lube N' Tune #4305 installed the wrong oil filter in my car, causing the oil to empty while I was driving, ruining my engine.
The franchisee stonewalled for 6 full days. After I forced a response by going to his shop, he not only rejects all responsibility, he blames me for driving the car.
I allowed him to tow my car from my mechanic's shop to his shop to inspect it, and now he even refuses to tow it back to my mechanic's shop. I called corporate and received no response from them.
My car is being held hostage by his refusal to tow it back to where he got it, forcing me to incur the tow charges. The estimates for replacing my engine are $1950-3700.
This was the most expensive "cheap" oil change I ever experienced.
