AUSTELL, GEORGIA -- With my $19.99 coupon I went to Midas thinking they couldn't mess up too much on my Saturn Ion 2004. Boy was I wrong. I went it with no problems with my car, left with an engine light on and they did not turn off the oil change light. I asked the owner to turn off the light and he said if he turns my car off it probably won't crank suggesting it was because of the heat. I work from home and this was the 3rd time my car left my garage in a week. The heat hasn't touch my car much this week - didn't make since. Well he told me how to turn the light off myself and his instructions were wrong.
So, I went online and found the correct instructions and did it myself. I also asked him about the engine light and he, with reluctance, hooked up his little "autozone" machine and said it was the transmission. I came with no lights and now I have engine lights, transmission problems and an oil light. Sounds like I paid $22 to get them to destroy my car. Well I still need to check to see if they really changed the oil. I'll never go back... too much drama for me.
ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND -- Had oil change on 3/5/13 and light came on 3/29/13. Checked with stick, no oil. This can't be. Been going to MIDAS for year, never no problem. The one I was going to closed down so wanted to stay with MIDAS. I went to one close to my job. What a mistake. Had to add 3 qt. I really thought they were reliable. So wrong.
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND -- I went in for a simple oil change at Midas (Patapsco Ave., Baltimore, MD 21227) and the incompetent staff left the top off of the coolant system and that ruined the car and they refuse to take responsibility for their neglect.
RANDOLPH, NEW JERSEY -- They accidentally put double the amount of oil in so when my daughter drove away, the whole car was shaking. She called me when she was more than half way home and I brought it to another mechanic who diagnosed the
problem. I called Midas requesting a refund. They said they would credit my account, but never did. Now, less than a month later, her low pressure tire warning light came on. All of her tires were at least 10 psi too low. Perhaps they also put they wrong amount of air in the tires?
BROWN DEER, WISCONSIN -- On May 12, 2008 I took my car into Midas to get an oil change but instead I came out with a broken front bumper. Midas has ordered the new part for me but today they ran away and closed down their business. I lost $125 plus what I paid for the oil change that I will be paying with my own money to the fault of Midas. I would recommend that you never take your car to Midas ever. They'll break your car then run away leaving you with the expenses.
MIAMI, FLORIDA -- I went to Midas on July 27, 2007 for maintenance on my SUV. I had an oil change and some other things done. However I was on my way out of town the same day to Zephyrhills Fl. My truck stopped on me about 200 miles down the road. After getting my truck towed to the Midas in Zephyrhills, it was stated that the Midas in Miami off of 79 street and 2nd ave did not put my oil caps back into place. When I found this information out I took action and called the head office in Miami they did not call make back until I called and told them that I had my engine tested and my engine head gaskets and other components where destroyed due to oil frailer in my car.
First off they did not honor their 90 day warranty. It has only been 2 months and 17 days. They also stated that they wear not going to replace or repair my engine because I got the work done when I had 47528 miles on my car now I have about 52000 miles and they are not even considering the fact that on that 47528 miles I drove 200 miles without oil in my car which brings that number up and then not to mention I also I had drive a little over 200 miles to come back down to Miami to try to get paper work stating that due to their own negligence that my car my have engine damage. They told me no and now they do not want to honor their warranty nor repair my SUV.
