They always fix the problem and at a reasonable price. In my experience, the team at Branford Meineke has been able to fix problems that the dealer tried to fix and couldn't fix right. I'm very happy with the service and quality of the repair.
- David S.
Everyone is always courteous and knowledgeable. If something needs to be addressed they will tell you and explain how long it will take and the cost.

We broke down on I95 on a Saturday at 3:00. Our alternator and two pulleys along with our belts were shot. The guys at this location were able to find the parts and get us back on the road by 6:00. All this on a holiday weekend! Cannot say enough nice things about these guys.
- Howard M.

Car was taken 1 day ahead of time. Bob was very helpful and knowledgeable. They did not perform work they felt was not in their core expertise, but recommended things that needed done. I especially like the Visual Estimate I received by email. That was very helpful.
- Brad S.
I stopped in because my car was making a strange noise and I wanted an appointment to diagnose it. Bob kept my car and found the problem and fixed it and did a routine oil change etc, all before 4 that afternoon. Thank you. I felt very cared for.
- Betty M.
Bob is just the best, needed help while I was out of town, he advised me to go to the local Meineke location in the town I was in, he told me what he thought was wrong with my car from my description and it turns out he was right. That made me feel better since I was dealing with a stranger and not Bob who knows my car. Grateful for his advice!

Bob and his staff are awesome. Knowledgable always pleasant and honest. Hard to find a honest shop these days and will only let bob and team work on my cars which are a Mercedes and Bmw.
- Brian O.
Jason & Bob are great when they told me the cost to replace the Hybrid 07 Camry's AC compressor was over $1200 I asked if I could look around for a used one (the dealers wanted $3000 and $4000!) I found one 2 states away they said I could leave the car a few days until I got the part which was nice (one less 50 min. round trip) It's so nice to have these guys around we can trust them & they are reasonable and try to help you out when ever they can. I have a dozen stories how they helped us over the last 20+ years...from steering us away from buying a bad used car & that a car looked good to buy to telling us it's time to get rid of a high milage car and it's not worth putting any more money into it and why... honest guys!
- Mike G.
I needed my car to be looked at because of some problems I encountered the night before and was afraid to drive my car without it being looked at. I called when they opened that morning and spoke with Bob he told me to drop my car off and that they would get to it at some point during the day. I dropped it off around 9:30 they found the problem with my car and was able to fix it that day. I picked up my car around 3:30 which I thought was fantastic and felt very safe driving my car after Bob checked everything out and fixed what was wrong. I trust Bob and the staff completely I've been going there for all of my car maintenence for over 5 yrs.

- Verified Meineke Customer
It comes down to the people that greet me at the counter and answer the phone they know me they know my car. Victoria and Bob give me the confidence that they are doing what they say they will do and get me back to work in the time they say they will. I don't know a thing about cars and don't care to so I have to trust them!

Victoria was awesome! She explained everything to me in a patient and kind manner. I was very impressed with the report that was emailed to me including pictures of my car!

Thank you very much for the oil change on veterans day i used to go to monroe they wanted to charge me for a oil change that was supposed to be free you guys kept your word i will be back with future business keep up the good work
- Verified Meineke Customer
Bob Coco takes great care of our cars. He does excellent work and is always friendly and a pleasure to deal with.
- Verified Meineke Customer
I came in for an exhaust repair and it was recommended that my front brakes be done. Not only were both jobs done quickly but the brake job fixed a long time problem with pulsation which the dealer couldn't fix.
- David S.
I'm always weary to get an oil change because companies are so eager/pushy to upsell. I loved how Meineke handled this - after the oil change, they mentioned I needed a few other repairs. They were not pushy at all and were very knowledgeable and informative. The pictures they provided me really helped. I am not a car person so when a mechanic starts explaining what is wrong with my car, I can never follow what they're saying. By showing me the picture, Meineke made me feel in control of the situation by providing me with adequate knowledge of my car's problems and allowing me to make an informed decision. Unfortunately, I was in a time crunch - I'm paid hourly at work and had to leave, so I only got an oil change and windshield wiper replacement. But I will 100% return to Meineke to follow up with repairs that are still needed. Again, by seeing the pictures, I know it is urgent to fix a part in my car so I will make sure to book an appointment within the week.
- Liz G.
Always very friendly and quick service!

Bob is a very knowledgeable and courteous person.

As always Bob Coco and his team of professional techs are amazing. Inspected my daughter's Volvo and gave me a complete breakdown of the necessary repair(s) sent to my phone/ email, for to me review and for record keeping. Recently, I was in for an electrical and window issue. They repaired it perfectly and it was ready for me many hours earlier than I had expected. As ALWAYS, THIS MEINEKE is SUPER CONSISTANT in providing over the top service from appointment set up, to the moment you are greeted and assisted by Victoria and throughout each of my visits. I service ALL of my vehicles at Branford MEINEKE. They can handle most everything! Thank you Branford MEINEKE Kate H.

I was impressed with the honesty and integrity which is very rare to find with car mechanics. I also like the fact pictures of the areas in question were sent to me since typically mechanics are so secretive with what exactly they are working on with your car. The prize also seemed good compared to other places
- Verified Meineke Customer
Bob the owner was very friendly and answered all my questions.The associate who worked on my car came out and explained what was needed and the price took pictures of all the things he replaced and also you could see what they were doing while you waited as the area had glass into the garage.Will return to get tires in the fall.
- Patricia K.
Though your service is very good and I trust Bob's integrity, your price is often very high. its a catch 22 though because I don't have time to price shop garages!

We have been using Meineke in Branford for over 20 years as our "go to" mechanics for everything concerning our cars. The service has always been top-notch, the people friendly and helpful and unlike with other mechanics we used prior to Meineke, we have never had the experience of bringing in the car to have one thing fixed only to have something else mysteriously go wrong days after getting the car back. They are honest, thorough and very good at what they do. We will not take our cars anywhere else.
- Verified Meineke Customer
Bob and the woman in the front are two of the nicest, most helpful people I have ever met. We have been going there for years with Audis and B MWs. They always fix any problem, council us on future expectations, and keep the schedule that they promise. Feel so lucky to have them to turn to.
