Meineke mechanics and management provides the quintessential example of why mechanics are often viewed as dishonest and manipulators. I went in with a coupon to save a little money on an oil change--all I wanted was a simple 15 dollar oil change. After waiting for well over an hour, the sales associate called me back into the garage to "go over some stuff" about my car. I got the usual dirty air filter attempt at gouging me for money which I am used to...but also got 90% false quotes for all kinds of stuff desperately wrong with my car (totaling almost $1,000) (car was inspected 2 months ago and is relatively new). Even trying to say I needed new spark plugs because someone "wrongly replaced them" when I got the car straight from the manufacturer. I am a young girl and I feel they were trying to take complete advantage of me. I smiled at their pretty blatant attempts to rip me off, stated I just wanted the oil change, and told them something they wanted to here in order to avoid them trying to finagle with anything else in my car. I just wanted to get out of there. BTW, as I was leaving the "owner" started yammering about how America needs to "reinstitute the draft," which is completely unrelated but shows how far gone he is from reality. I was not here for an inspection, just a simple oil change. Next time I'll go down the road to a reputable business and pay the extra to avoid nonsense. I have spoken with a friend who is a mechanic who told me the only thing correct they told me was needing new brakes....Oh, and they tried to charge me 25 bucks. I spoke up and got my "discount"
