This is a horrible location. The employees are not friendly. I have been doing business with this location for over four years. I brought my car in to find out why there was a clicking sound in my wheels. The first time I was told it was nothing. The second time, less tthan 3 months, I was told it was the wheel arms and given a price that was it. I had my brakes done at this location 1 year prior. I took my car for a second opinion and was told it was indeed the wheel arms but the car was too dangerous to drive. I had my 17 month old baby with me each time I went into Meineke. On top of all of this the new mechanic stated that whomever did my brake work did a poor job and that they should have informed me how dangerous it was to drive the car, like dying dangerous. Each time I have went into this location there is new management and the one time I saw the owner he was barking orders and did not speak to the customers. The mechanics are as cold as ice, no wonder why they didn't care if I lived or died, with my daughter!!! I am horrified that I have given these people that much power over me, to lie to me about something that serious means they have been dishonest about previous work. I would not advise anyone to go there. Save your life and go somewhere else.

I was reading the other reviews before I went here. However, these guys gave me an honest quote (lower than 2 other shops I went to), and fixed my car in 4 hours! The other shop (John's lube) said that It would cost at least 50 dollars more, and that It would take 3 days! There's a man named Daryl there. Very nice guy, and gave us the update for our vehicle! I'm returning for an oil change!

This location definitely is dishonest.

They charge the female surcharge in the extreme.

I had my daughter take my car to get the brakes checked and the outrageous quote they gave showed me that they decided they had found a "mark". They wanted to fully replace all four brakes wheels and drums on my car that has had light use from me since it was new. I immediately told the employee who called me with the quote to simply re assemble my car. I would take it elsewhere.

I took it to a known honest repair shop, where I was told there was nothing at all wrong with my brakes, I did not even need new brake pads. It was at least 2 years until I even needed new brake pads after the attempted scam by Meineke.

Even though this shop is close and could be convenient, I will not darken thier door, ever, for any thing.

If I want to throw away money, I will throw it a different direction.

I have never written a review before, but what happened to me was very very wrong. I went to Meineke because the brake lights light in my car started turning on and off.

I took my car to Meineke Car Center #4, at 5809 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX 77057. The caucasian man, around 50 y.o. told me that I needed to replace all 4 brake pads and resurface all 4 rotors. (If anyone wants to check, the estimate was #43924, given on 09/26/06 at 13:07:57). The quoted price was $282.85.

Afterwards, I told him I'll get a second estimate and he looked kind of pissed off. Three days later, I went to Midas (the one on at 10555 S. Post Oak, Houston, TX 77035) and "Robert" told me that my brakes were in good condition and that all I needed was to replace my serpentine belt for $83.00.

I swear! Before you anyone gets their brakes checked at Meineke, make sure that you get a second estimate from another car maintenance business!!!

DO NOT GET RIPPED OFF FROM SCUMB like this!

PROS: None.
CONS: Lies, Overestimate Pricing
