Meineke Car Care Center MV4940 #904 Melbourne Florida

Complaint: I own a 2006 Scion Tc. Upon my pre-paid service package with the original Toyota dealership expiring at 70,000 miles, I decided to begin using this local Meineke for my routine car care (which I have done every 5,000 miles). Upon my car reaching exactly 76,057 miles on May 18, 2010, I visited Meineke for a routine oil change, tire rotation, and inspection. There was no immediate problem. Around September/October, I noticed a slight jerking when applying pressure to my brakes at low speeds. I assumed perhaps it was a brake pad issue but did nothing initially about this.On October 25,2010, I returned to the same Meineke upon reaching 81,176 miles, in need of another oil change, tire rotation, and inspection. Shortly after, the same day, I returned in need of a tire balance since the rotation of the tires uncovered the need for this to be done (extreme car shaking at around 70mph). At this time, I mentioned to a mechanic the jerking when braking and he responded that he saw no issue with my brakes or any other component involving my wheels. As the jerking continued, I decided to visit an old, trusted mechanic of ours, Ed (Ed’s Certified Automotive of Stuart, FL) approximately 100 miles from my location, on December 1, 2010. Upon picking up my car, Ed stated that he had to shave the right front rotor. He immediately pointed out a possible cause – someone had placed a mismatched lugnut on my right front rim that didn’t belong to the make or model of my vehicle and did not fit correctly, possibly causing the warping of the rotor, though he couldn’t be absolutely sure. Since I had to return the 100 miles back to Melbourne, he stated he would have to put the lugnut back on for safety but to immediately have it replaced. The following day, visited Meineke and explained what my “family”” mechanic had discovered and repaired. They refused to take blame for the mismatched lugnut. They stated the lunut was ok to have on my car since it was the correct threading. Within the next couple days
