My local Meineke has terrible Yelp reviews for oil change. Normal everyday price is $14.95 for regular oil. Testimonials of something goes wrong with car after oil change particularly with people who declined the higher price synthetic oil service or declined other services Meineke claims they needed.

It can be any service, get a pair of wipers or a new air filter.......

My problem with Meineke is that they insist and swear up and down that I must get a full synthetic oil change when every other place (and my owners manual even) says I only need the synthetic blend. Meineke refuses to do an oil change unless I do full synthetic. Even with the discount, I can get a synthetic blend cheaper without a discount elsewhere.

Is Meineke as crooked as Jiffy Lube?

  I would say they all work the same.
Clearly they do not make  any money on n advertised price
and harp real hard on upsells or just skip what you pay for all together

Sorry to threadcrap. Cant vouch for Minekie. Bu, I'll second the Jiffylube. I got ripped off at jiffylube today. I got a Groupon for $36 for regular oil change and they insisted I needed synthetic or synthetic blend. When I said I just want the regular she said "we are out of the regular oil" WTH!

The Valvoline folks I go to regularly are awesome and honest!

I would complain to Groupon on  that, about their bait and switch. Who ever heard of a Jiffy Lube being out of oil??

  Groupon has to be well aware of how these places work.
They offering the deal then are condoning all practices done.

  Let me take a stab at this.
The oil they want to use was way more than $36

I hate the stress of taking my car for an oil change. I took my wife's car for oil change at Goodyear last month and they try to upgrade to full synthetic oil change and tells me that I should get other fluids replaced too. Car has only 18k miles on it. I can't wait till we get Tesla Model 3. No more oil changes required.

  Call Groupon and ask for refund. They will issue refund

That's a leap "condoning all practices done"....and you know this how?  they offer the deal on behalf of the merchant, they have no way to know what happens when the customer shows up to use the Groupon unless the customer complains.

My goofy Meineke doesn't even list regular oil change on website, they have 3 choices and its starts at $34 for synthetic blend.
