Have used Meineke with all my cars, most especially for their warranty. Have never ever been dissatisfied with their services. Was with Frank in the Bronx and now with Vinny in Yonkers, only because we moved.

I've been going to the Meineke at Central Park Ave, Yonkers, NY for many years now. I can truly say they are the best in town! They have serviced my car fully from the basic oil change to extensive repairs. They're also very down to earth and easy to talk to and to know. I most definitely recommend them, and will continue to have my car serviced by them, just a very professional team all around!
- Verified Meineke Customer

Ginny was terrific and so helpful. I can't explain how satisfied I was visiting this location and will definitely go back if need be. Really great place with the friendliest staff I have ever seen in a repair shop operation.
- Verified Meineke Customer
All the staff was great. All those that worked on my car were great. I remember the names of Anthony, Vinny, and Ralph but there were two other mechanics that were equally as courteous who helped with my car Inspection but I do not recall their names. They were also courteous to my son and parents when I recommended they bring their cars. My son had an oil change done. They advised my parents that their car needed no repairs. Will DEFINATELY recommend to other family members who have yet to experience the quality service.
- Elizabeth B.
I was in and out timely
- Vince D.
It's my first car, so I needed an inspection The min I walked in Vinny took care of me and handed me to this other guy that was very pleasant.. He even switched my license plates for me.. thank you... Overall very great experience... Everyone was very friendly....
- Debra G.
The owner was a no-nonsense guy who advised me on how to keep the car in shape during storage. He was just a good guy to talk with and made me completely relaxed about leaving my car with his mechanic for service. The people were friendly, efficient, quick and personable. I will definitely be coming back and I wish them all the best!
- Douglas S.
This particular meineke was incredible. From when I walked in to when I was leaving, they were friendly, professional and eager to assist me. I had to wait a few minutes until a mechanic became available which was quite fine. Then, he completed my inspection in what seemed like 10 minutes. This is definitely where I plan to go for any of any car needs. Good job guys!
- Tassia G.
I bought a new car. It was time for a oil change. I spoke with mangement and asked if they would take care of my car & service when necessary. They agreed. I'm very pleased.
- Lois P.
Vinny and Tony are fair and honest.
- Verified Meineke Customer
Tony and Vinny are very knowledgable and informative with their services. Reliable and honest with a very friendly staff. Every experience has been beneficial and pleasant. I have and would recommend them to family members and friends!
- Janet M.
To be completely honest my answer to the first question isn't accurate as the reason I went to Meineke wasn't listed. I go to the Meineke on Central Avenue in Yonkers solely because of Tony his son and the staff they have assembled. There are Meineke's closer to my home but those two are the most honest mechanics I have ever met before in my life. Couple that with the fact that they do great work (as does the rest of their staff) and going there is a no-brainer in spite of the fact that it is located 25 minutes from my home. Full disclosure - I like the work they do so much I was totally fine paying the tow truck company an additional $25 because their Meinke location was out of AAA mileage area for towing my car.
- Jon K.
From start to finish all the staff at this Meineke were excellent. The repair to my exhaust cost much less that I expected because they did not try to sell me more than what I really needed. HONESTY goes a long way. Because of this I also had my oil changed which included a visual check of the brakes. GREAT.. I WILL BE BACK..
- Bob E.
This is my first time visiting Meineke. I spoke with Tony who was was helpful and polite. He took his time answering questions and I didn't feel pressure or ripped off. I wasn't able to get the tire I needed to help with my situation but when able to I will go back to them and have them take care of it.
- N.
Being a woman I was very pleased with their honesty. I had squeaking in my breaks. They adjusted them and cleaned off the dust. I'm sure if taken somewhere else I would have been told it was something more. Probably costing more.

Vinny was so nice, was honest with me, didn't talk down to me, and let me borrow his truck to go meet a friend for coffee while they were working on my car. Unfortunately I've moved out of the area and can't return to this shop, but if I still lived in Yonkers, they'd have a customer for life.

After taking my car to the dealership and not being happy with my service. I brought it here. They pointed out a large hole in my muffler that the Toyota Dealership did not notice on their 20 point inspection the prior day. Needless to say, as I am from out of state and was driving 1,000 miles back home, I was greatful to have honest mechanics get what I needed done and point out a serious issue.

Vinny was great in expediting my car service. Scott performed a great muffler service. My service was quick and professional.

- Carlton A.
Vinny and the team at this Meineke are always outstanding. They are personable caring professional and thorough. It is the warm welcome and the commitment to care customer and comfort that keeps me coming back. Vinny and Tony have become more a genuine friendship than simply a business interaction. They and their quality team keep me coming back.

Prices are good and the work is always above and beyond. The work crew with scott and dave and the rest of the crew who's names i dont know are exceptional. Keep up the great work.
- Jonathan Mo.
Getting a State Inspection is always like going to a Dentist they ALWAYS need to do work that is going to hurt you. This is my second year at this location and they not only did a great job but told me that a dealer recommendation was really not necessary. I am impressed by their expertise and service and feel I can trust them like a family member.
- Jim H.
I have used them for the past 2 or 3 Years now - Every time I needed something with my 3 Cars - They got them fixed right the first time - The first thing that I like is that they always great you out side before you even get out of your car - They ask you what you think you need so they can place you can in the right spot out side the bay - Same thing in the office - They let you know that they know that you are there - They are also great about giving you an about cost - And if you have to leave the car - They always call you to let you know what they found and what they want to do - As well as what it will cost - Before they go and do it - If there is a sale with a coupon on line - They always give me the coupon price with out a coupon - And ask me about basic things - Oil - Tiers - Wipers - Things like that - Overall a great shop with great workers - THANK YOU -
