Backed by the Meineke name, an industry presence since Sam Meineke opened his first shop in 1972, each Meineke Car Care Center franchise offers a lengthy list of maintenance and repair services performed at the hands of ASE-certified mechanics. Now operated by the same owners as the Fowler Street location, the Cape Coral outpost employs these experienced grease monkeys to keep cars running smoothly and safely on all four of their hairless legs, treating auto bodies to everything from oil changes to safety inspections.
As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extend beyond oil changes, too—they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.
John Meyer inherited his love of cars from his father, Bill, who started repairing cars in a Pittsburgh service station in 1955. Today, in his Cape Coral shop, the younger Meyer and his team of mechanics care for cars of all kinds during tune-ups, safety checks, tire services, and other routine-maintenance procedures. The shop relies on top manufacturers, such as Michelin, Firestone, and Dunlop, to perform all of its services.
