I always go to my Meineke in Amherst New Hampshire because the staff are always so friendly and I have a great trust in the work and the mechanics doing the work. I am bringing my grandson to have his work done there because I trust them so much!
- Sharon W.
Doug and Bob are the best. They treat us like family and is why my family and all our cars (7) only go there for all service and repairs.
- Ken A.
The staff are all great. They are fast, very honest, and very helpful.

I'm terrible with names, but the gentlemen running this particular meineke location is one of the best I've had to work with. He's very kind and helpful, always willing to work with me to get my car up. I've been to a few different meinekes, but this is my preferred location!

The guys who run the Amherst NH Meineke shop I trust and ALWAYS bring my cars there. We are moving across the country to Whidbey Island Washington. I have no idea whether there even is Meineke shop there and if there is whether that shop is even run by honest people.
- Mark R.
Bod and Doug always take good care of all my vehicles and have been for many years.
- Verified Meineke Customer
Bob and Doug at the Amherst St location are the best, and I wouldn't consider bringing any of my vehicles to anybody else. They even do all my new car scheduled maintenance.
- Gary K.
Doug pretty much knew what my problem was when I told him that my windshield wipers suddenly stopped working and that the fuse was not the problem. He said it was probably the windshield wipers transmission and he'd order the part. and that was the problem.
- Mark R.
I had an oil change and a check on one tire that kept going low. They found a nail in it and patched it. They always give positive, helpful and accurate advice and service, as well as keeping me in the know of what is coming up... but not pressuring at all. Bob and Frank are always on top of their game. Excellent with the cars and the people. Thanks guys!

I wish I remembered the gentleman's name that I first spoke with to price brakes. He was extremely upbeat and patient pricing the job and answering questions. He is a huge asset to your company and the reason I will come back. The mechanics were honest and didn't do extra work just to make money. They saved me $100 by being honest and letting me know my front brakes were completely fine even though I had booked for front and rear brakes. The whole experience was fantastic. I can't thank you enough for the great, caring, and honest associates you have at the Milford location. I will most definitely be back.

Bob the gent behind the desk is a pleasure to work with
- Kevin S.
Doug as always was great. I went in for a simple state inspection but also discussed a plan for another vehicle I want to sell that needs some work first. Doug brought up a couple strategies that I hadn't even thought of. This Meineke is the only shop we have been going to for over a decade because of the great service, fair prices and trust we have with Doug and Bob. The trust is why my three grown children and son in law also go there and I recommend them to all my friends.
- Ken A.
Meineke is always trustworthy and when I leave, the workmanship is 100% direct except this last visit concerning the vibration, noise and howling. A other visit is required on 6/6/17.
- Dean M.
Even though I needed work to my vehicle prior to getting my sticker they said I could get the work elsewhere and to come back they would put sticker on car.. Like the idea of not being pushed on to the work that needs to be done
- Verified Meineke Customer
Saved me considerable money by recommending a fix rather than replacement of an exhaust pipe that was only available at the dealership. Found them to be very honest.
- Verified Meineke Customer
The only reason I didn't give a higher # for referring this location to others is because ... I come from another state to go to this specific location. Bob and Doug are great and always go the extra mile to take care of my car.
- Bar Mu.
I came on the wrong day for my appointment and they were able to squeeze me in between other appointments so I didn't have to come back.
- Selena A.
Doug, was very helpful and explained the needed work in terms that I could understand, and the process and price to complete the work. I am grateful
- Verified Meineke Customer
They got me in bright and early and were very quick, also rotated my tires because it was time!
- Lynn Dickerson.
Just tire rotation & balance this visit, but have been to this location a few times for brakes etc. Staff is great, always friendly, knowledgeable, and service is done right. They take care of their customers, will be back again for sure.
- Verified Meineke Customer
Bob is great and so is the service.
- Frederick S.
Service manager is a pleasure to deal with, he is energetic and accommodating.
- Verified Meineke Customer
Bob and Doug do a great job. Fantastic service at a fair price.
- Paul D.
Bob is such a great person to work with. I don't know much about cars so he is always excellent in explaining why something needs to be done to my car. He is honest and will tell me when I don't actually need what I think I need done. Not every place does that and instead takes advantage of me. I am very pleased because I feel like that has never happened to me at Meineke. They also have reasonable prices and they usually give me some sort of discount whenever I go there. It's things like this that keep me coming back!
- Katie V.
Had the truck towed for an issue which self-resolved but Doug noticed some critical work which was needed immediately and was able to do it in that same visit.
- David W.
I loved how quick they were for an oil change and the price is great!! I'll definitely come back for all my oil changes!!
- Jennifer G.
This is just a great place to bring our cars. Bob and Frank are always helpful courteous professional and go above and beyond to be sure we are getting the service we need. They check to be sure any current coupons or discounts are applied. They give us a good report of what may need to be done next with no pressure. Can't say enough about how confident we are to visit this Meineke shop.
- Verified Meineke Customer
I received the usual quality friendly service that I always get from this location. I have referred family to this shop as well and they have been equally satisfied. Keep up the great work!
- Mark W.
The manager is great. He is professional cheerful engaging and the number one reason I use the service at this location.
- Mike H.
Bob and Doug always give us their best. It's nice to go to a business who knows you and are familiar with your cars. You can trust them to not sell you on anything you do not need.
- Sally Z.
Great Team...very efficient and Professional.
- Verified Meineke Customer
The person meeting the customer was extremely nice and knowledgeable and verified some wrong information from my dealership. He was honest, on time, and very respectful to every customer who came in door or called on phone.
- R K.
Estimate was right on target. Bob was professional and sincere about helping me with my car. Because the work would take several hours he offered a loaner.
- Verified Meineke Customer
I love Doug and Bob. I trust them so much that I drive over an hour to go here (even for an in-and-out oil change). They always give me an amazing price and they never recommend services that aren't really needed. In fact, they usually give me a heads up when I'll probably need to have something done at a future date.
- Marissa B.
Doug and Bob are great. Been using them for over 10 years.
- Marty N.
Spoke with Bob on this visit, he went out of his way to accommodate me because I only had a 1 hour period to get my oil change and tires rotated. Bob and Doug are the 2 nicest guys you'll ever meet. They are always friendly and professional :)
- Rachel S.
Bob is always very pleasant and explains everything he's done or needs to be done clearly. I trust him tp take care of me and my car!
- Lee K.
Excellent service!

Love the whole crew at this Meineke - I would never go anywhere else.
- Jeannette R.
The manager was cheerful, positive straight forward and a pleasure to deal with. His attitude and professional demeanor will keep me returning to this site.
- Michael H.
I can leave with complete satisfaction with any services rendered. These guys (Doug & Bob) are very professional and treat you like family. Keep up the good work. Dean "Make a great day"
- Dean M.
Bob, Doug and his staff are always tremendous. I went in thinking I needed a costly alternator when Doug advised me it was just a dead battery which saved me a lot of money. Also, the free loaner vehicle is over-the-top generous.
- David W.
I love the ability to set an appointment time via the website and have the service started immediately when I arrive. During my car inspection the inspectors noticed some underbody rust on my classic car and provided a very good reference to another shop that handles that type of repair work. I appreciate that the team there does very thorough work at an extremely competitive price. Finally, I like that they are always friendly at that location and always remember me and my cars.
- Mark W.
I had called to make an appointment, not sure what happened (phone issue), but I was told they didn't talk to me. However, as professional as they always are my oil change and tire rotation was completed. I wasn't turned away. The guys are always so professional, quick, and make you feel welcome. I will be a continuous repeat customer.
- Cat V.
Bob & Doug are the best. I refer all my friends and co-workers to them. Great to be able to trust a car service center.
- David W.
My vehicle was sounding loud from the exhaust. I stopped in at Meineke in Amherst on RT 101. With no appointment they got me in quickly. They told me what was wrong and the cost. I agreed to the cost and in 45 minutes or less they were done. I'm glad to see the same sales person and I am happy they only sell me what I need.
- Ryan L.

Doug always a pleasure to deal with.
- Paul J.
On my visit I worked with Doug and not only was he thorough but he was considerate. I came in for an oil change and inspection but it turned out I needed new brakes. Doug gave me options knowing I hadn't planned for this expense and I really appreciate that. When all was said and done it took less than a day for my car to be reapired and safe to drive.
- Verified Meineke Customer
Very friendly guys! They were able to fit me in the day-of and let me know the price ahead of time. They didn't do any extra work that I didn't ask for, but let me know what might need to be done on my car in the future! I had my front brakes and rotors done and the service was good. Now my entire car doesn't shake when I press on the brakes!
- Verified Meineke Customer
I had some suspension questions and the staff went to great lengths to give me my options and the costs associated with them.

Bob Doug and Frank are always helpful. I haven't taken my cars anywhere else since the first time I that had my oil changed there. They have done all the work they could do there. It's been at least 10 years.
- Mark R.
My experience was good. However the waiting room tv was on Fox News, I found the political news offensive. I would suggest hgtv, animal planet, anything but fox
- Lisa S.
I always look forward to seeing Doug and Bob. Their attitudes are wonderful, they're very helpful, incredibly considerate, and consistently provide excellent customer service with a smile.

Dumped Monro. Poor repair record with muffler - tires and inspections not done timely. Tried Meineke, got in quick, all service done VERY quickly. Will go here again next time for my auto needs.
- Verified Meineke Customer
Everyone was amazing! It was very easy to schedule an appointment online and the service was quick and painless! The customer service is excellent. I have already recommended meineke to my family!
- Meredith F.
The man at the front desk was great to me! Made me feel comfortable while I waited, was very kind and let me know that my timing belt needed to be done soon, wish I remembered his name. The Service was also adobe very fast.
- Tayah R.
Had been going to Monroe for years . Suddenly all of the guys I worked with were gone. The garage appearance was sub standard land the great guys were gone! Meineke has a great group of guys, and they take care of everyone who walks in.
- Michele G.
Bob Boles and Frank French are always professional, courteous, positive and helpful. I trust their recommendations and the shop's work. Their prices are competitive and hold true. I have much more confidence and trust in them than I have in most other auto mechanic shops.

Whenever I need to have an oil change/tire rotation - The Guys at Amherst Meineke are always so accommodating to my schedule. I had an oil gage malfunction a few days after having my oil changed, I was scooted in and they checked out the situation, ordered the part, I came back and they fixed the problem. All the guys that work there are so polite and considerate to their customers.
- Cat V.
Bob was great- from my phone call with him to get an estimate - "just stop by and we are happy to look at your muffler", to when we met and then the day of the appointment. No surprises, no "let's see if we can get her to do more. " He had kindness and understood getting a new muffler system (and I added on an oil change and state inspection since it was there) just before Christmas was a big deal. Thanks Bob!
- Verified Meineke Customer
I had a wonderful experience. My car had the check engine light on, and in need of a spark coil, and Meineke was able to fit me in same day (on Black Friday). Employee was very helpful and serviced my car like he would service his own when I asked him to check the spark plugs, but keep them if possible (because replacing costs a bit of money). Was able to get the parts and have the job completed in a very short time. I will likely not return, because I'm local to Vermont and was visiting NH at the time. BUT, when my car was having the problem in NH, Meineke was the only place I considered, and I wouldn't know where else to go if they had been unable to help. I've heard great things from my local family, and after this experience, I absolutely agree!

I have been going for more than 10 years, I like the owner and his staff.
- Verified Meineke Customer
I had my brakes and rotors done and it was quick, like at least 3 hours quicker than I expected
- Chad Jones.
Meineke has always treated me well. They are always honest with me, telling me what needs to be done, regardless for what I said I came in for. For example, I went in thinking that I needed to get my brakes done, but Bob told me that they were fine and to instead spend the money one new tires. Being a young woman, I feel like I am taken advantage of often, so I am happy that everyone treats me with respect and kindness. I have never had an issue in the several years that I have been seeing them.
