I have managed and worked as a tech for Meineke store 728 Frederick, Md. on and off from 2006. In my opinion I have been dismissed because I would not let unethical, unsafe and uneducated repairs continue without saying anything. Daily the manager and owner sell rotors and calipers that in my 20 years?? experience should never be replaced. Commonly, brake pads with 7/32 left ??depending on driving habits 4/32 could get you another year of use? are sold. If you??re ever sold a rotor ask for the old part, state you will take it to a safety inspector.
I have witnessed the owner and manager both do what I believe to be illegal safety inspections under the table on a regular basis putting unsafe cars that don't meet minimum safety requirements on the road to drive next to you or your children. In my opinion because the store owner is so limited in his hands on knowledge repairs go misdiagnosed all the time costing you more and repairs like leaving steering couplers loose THIS COULD KILL YOU OR SOMEONE ELSE are common place.
If you need an inexpensive exhaust repair I would completely recommend them. But, any exhaust part replacement check with your local tire store there probably just as cheap. And not to mention very often you are paying more for your parts then the dealer charges due to the 300% markup on parts bought at the local parts store that you and I shop at.
I have reported them to the local state trooper and hopefully they will never be able to do a safety inspection again. Also, be aware that the BBB gives them a d- on a scale of a thru f info from bbb.org.
I wonder if corporate gets paid for bogus inspections or all the work done under the table?

Took my car in for an oil change. While sitting in the waiting room I observed the owner get excited when one employee ended a phone call and stated that the customer 'went for it all' - a list of repairs adding up to a couple of thousand. I was blown away. My oil did not look particularly clean after the job. Dubious place. I usually change oil myself, and will find time to in the future.
