I got rear struts for my car at this Tigard location. The labor was $35/strut. When I had the brakes checked at Les Schwab this week, they noticed that one of the struts was broken. I took the Meineke receipt for the ?Lifetime Warranty? struts to get the broken strut repaired at Meineke. The guy at Meineke told me that they would replace the strut if I paid for labor at $95/strut. When I commented about the increase in labor costs, he told me it was a competitive rate. I got a quote from Les Schwab and their labor rate is $42/strut. The guy at Meineke also said there would be no warranty on the new strut if I didn?t get both replaced. So I can go to Les Schwab and pay $84 labor for two new struts or I can get my broken ?Lifetime Warranty? Meineke strut repaired for $190 at Meineke. (I doubt they charge $95/strut labor to put in struts for new customers - no one would buy from them if they did.) These guys are dishonest scammers. I?m so sorry I gave them my business when I initially got the struts.
