.

I went to Meineke because they had two good online reviews as opposed to other brake shop??s bad reviews.

I had let a ??friend try and fix my brakes but they started smoking after he was through with them.

I took my van into Meineke and told them to fix the back brakes and check the front.
Meineke told me that they would check all of the brakes.
I gave them my keys, left and came back the next day.

They told me that brakes had burned.
They gave me a price quote of:

1xLabor: Rear Brake Service (R&R Shoe Set, ADJ HDW, Machines Drums) 97.50

1xR New Brake Shoes 25.20
1xR Brake Drums145.99
1xR Wheel/Cyl-Left 32.97
1xR Drum Hardware Kit 27.48
1xBrake Fluid HD Premium 39.95
1xLabor: Flush Brake System 40.00

Sales Tax 18.60

Total437.69

I didn??t realize that this quote was for the back brakes only... after they said they would check all of it. I realized this after buying.

My bad for not paying attention

After they ??fixed? the brakes they told me that they found a a problem with the load proportion valve and the master cylinder

Meineke quoted me 530.10 for the load proportion valve.

I found the proportion valve for 220.50 online.

Overpriced?

After I picked my car up the first time, the pedals went to the floor. I quickly returned and told them what was wrong. They ??fixed? it free of charge.

Two to three days later, the right hand rear brakes that they just fixed locked up and was smoking.

I called them up and and told them it was smoking. They towed it their shop and told me that it was looked fine.

I told them to replace the wheel cylinder since the brakes had been smoking and would have burned the rubber down and it would have been quite unsafe.

They told me they would take care of it.

I went back to pick it up and drove it for about a month and the brake pedals have started going back to the floor.

I??ve lost brakes completely for 10 sec. twice.
That??s twice too long.

I took the van to Big O and they came up with a completely different reason for bad brakes. They didn??t mention any proportion valve or master cylinder.

I??m taking it in for a third opinion. These brakes have been a nightmare.

Summary:

Checked Brakes

??Fixed?
Brought back car three times in 2 mo.

$437 for back brakes alone didn??t fix it.

I won??t be back...

Took my car here for a new muffler once. They were quick to get it taken care of and they did the job right. The price is fair. I would take my car there again.
