Wow! What a contrasting experience from the other reviewer. I worked with Dave who was nice but terribly stressed out, forgetting simple tasks, and dealing with too many things at once to be of much help. I took my Toyota in for a simple oil change/tire rotation and they COMPLETELY (royally) screwed that up. How does one mess up an oil change? By failing to let me know that the Toyota oil filter I had brought in for them to use looked SIMILAR TO, but was *NOT* the correct filter for my Solara. So consequently ALL 5 quarts of their fresh oil had leaked out all over the engine and their engine bay! What a clean-up disaster for them. What a stinky, smoky, oil-filled car for me. I was smelling residual oil smoke coming in through my air vents for two days. Then on the third day, coming back from the airport, I noticed a long, oily trail behind my car as I was pulling in to mom's house. WTF?! I was really alarmed as this was not a good sign. Long story short, within two days I had lost ALL of my new oil on the ground. It was completely gone when I checked it that night. I drove nervously to the nearest store and bought three more, just in case. I added two quarts to the crankcase, drove for maybe ten minutes when the oil light came on! Holy smokes, was I scared. Here it is, 11:00pm in a rough part of town and my car is in serious trouble. I pulled over and prayed for a few minutes, which helped calm me down, then added the LAST quart I had, hoping to make it back the final 5 miles or so. I almost made it, having the oil warning light come again as I was maybe two blocks away. Taking no chances, I put her in neutral, turned off the engine, turned on my emergency flashers, and pushed her the last little way to their shop. That's roughly 8 quarts in total on the ground with a dry engine at that point. This level of incompetence in simply stunning, when you think about it. If you cannot trust them with a simple oil change, how can you have them do anything more complex?? Warning: Use them at your own risk. I will NEVER (ever) work with Meineke again. What a nightmare. My family could have been killed through their negligence. It was just pure luck that I was alone and only two towns away, not driving in the middle of nowhere when this happened. I was livid, as you might well imagine. Whew, close call. Hope your experience may be better...

I took my Lexus to National Auto for a quote on repairs, having been there before for repairs. I had noticed a developing noise that sounded like a muffler going bad, however the noise was coming from the front of the car.

They performed an inspection and gave me a written quote for $2,258.00 to replace the catalytic converter as that is what their inspection discovered to be the problem.

I took the car to Tommy and Rich at Meineke Car Care Center, 2436 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd, Clearwater, FL, 33765 (727) 799-6869, and they performed their inspection. Their inspection revealed that there was not a problem with the catalytic converter, but that the problem was actually the flex pipe near the catalytic converter.

Tommy and Rich replaced the Flex Pipe and also did an Oil Change for a total price, out the door, of under $225.

For any future issues with my car I will go to Meineke and see Tommy and Rich.
