My muffler fell off due to rust on Friday afternoon. I normally take my car to a local mechanic, but it usually takes days to schedule an appointment and then it may take a full day for the car to get fixed. My boyfriend recommended that I go to meineke. I made an appointment that evening for the following morning. When I got to the shop I was told that the muffler can be repaired (which I didn't think was a possibility) and it only took an hour! It definitely saved my weekend. The people at the shop were very nice and knowledgeable.

Joe, the owner, was happy to work with me to arrange my service for both my truck and my wife's car. both vehicles were serviced and inspected in a 3 day period, so we were not without a vehicle at all and did not need a loaner. this worked well for us. thank you!

All three staff members on duty were excellent and professional. Any questions I had were answered in detail. I asked a lot of questions. I was able to schedule an appointment last minute which was super convenient. Every step in the service was explained before it was begun and I was asked for approval before anything was attempted.

On Thursday July 7th, I had my oil changed at Meineke. I had an appointment at noon. The staff were wonderful. Extremely friendly and personable. They quickly brought my car back and completed the job. They gave me some recommendations which I considered but opted not to get. I stayed and chatted for a few minutes with the staff and really enjoyed my interaction with them. As a young woman visiting a car shop, it is always a little bit of an intimidating experience. But the staff was very kind and patient. I never once felt like they were trying to "sell" me something beyond what I needed, which is normally my experience. As I said, I'd highly recommend this location. Unfortunately, I am not from the area and only visiting for the summer. But I will do my best to let others know about this positive experience.
- Lena Z.
Very thorough. Advises customers on overall "health" of car. Polite. Some how they know my name! If there are any promotions going on, they make sure they do everything so that you receive the benefit.
- Grace L.
I knew I had an exhaust problem and what was thought to be the cause. However, your expert technician found an additional problem as well. He notified me about it (actually showing me where it was on my car) and explained what I needed to be done. He did NOT include anything else to inflate the "problem", such as the catalytic converter and the muffler. His honesty and integrity are the reasons I will always be a Meineke customer.
- Bryan B.
Joe and his staff are amazing! I have 3 very small children and we have only 1 family vehicle. The team worked as fast as they could on my vehicle and even offered to come pick it up next time it needed work so I didn't have to take my kids out in the heat for hours on end. Everyone I encountered went above and beyond for me. Made my situation bearable.

You recommended a good battery which meineke installed and did a professional job and gave me advice on other issues with my car that need attention.
- Donald B.
I came to this Meineke shop because I wanted to try someplace new after an overpriced experience with a local shop. I came to this Meineke with a battery problem that turned out to be so simple to fix that they refused to charge me. So that made me confident to come back this second time for state inspection oil change and change of air cabin filter.

The associate was extremely professional and helpful. Unfortunately I don't know the name of the associate who helped us but he was working at 2pm on 11/26 at the 716 Ulster Avenue, Kingston, NY 12401 location and issued invoice # 12647.

I did not have an appointment, but my Dad and I arrived a little before the shop was to open and it was already open! They immediately said they could see my car and work on it that day and I received a call from them only 2 hours later saying my car was ready! I had my snow tires put on and had them check out a possible leak in my exhaust - which they fixed for a great price! I will happily return to this shop when I need more services for my car!
- Melissa T.
Joe and his staff are very knowledgeable and experienced. Will recommend only the required service after a thorough inspection.
