Meineke / Misrepresented product sold

Cartersville, GA, United States Review updated:

recently had my car serviced at Meineke. I purchased a set of 4 shocks but I
objected to the price. I was told that they were not regular auto parts store
shocks but commercial grade shocks. When I got home I looked up the type of
shocks that were listed on the bill. They were in fact the exact same shocks I
could have bought at the local parts store for way less. It appears I was
charged $100 for a $25 shock times 4. I wrote to Meineke and complained but
they said that their stores are local franchises and it was up to the local
owner who refuses to reply to my correspondence. So I would say avoid Meineke
because evidently there is no consumer protection against their dealers
committing fraud. In these tough economic times it is evident that their
dealers are going to cheat people for all they can get away with. I was my
first and last time to deal with Meineke. Go to someone else for your repairs.

    Liars!! They didn't rotate the tires. I marked the tires. The treads were fine so no excuse. Employees dragging their feet and fishy.
