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. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 04/04/2013Add reply
BRADLEY, ILLINOIS -- I have only one day off a week, so on Nov. 16, 2012 I made an appointment at the Midas Muffler in Bradley, Ill. When I arrived the manager said that two people had dropped by and they were in front of me, so it would be several hours before he could even get me in. What was the point of an appointment? My time is as valuable as theirs is. I just tried to make a complaint on their website, and it complains about the date and refuses to submit it, so even their website is screwed up!2 Replies - Latest reply on 01/07/2013Add reply
Simply put, Do Not Go to Midas in Bend Oregon. Raul and his staff are RUDE and Incompetent! They are a rip off! After spending almost $1000 my car was Never fixed. I had to go to another shop in town and have them fix it and again pay for it. If you don't have to go to MIDAS DON'T! There are other places in town. If this shop went out of business it would be better for the community! 1 Replies - Latest reply on 11/22/2012Add reply
Put synthetic oil instead of required by instruction, oil. Asked not flush coolant, they did it. Ask to fix airfilter assembly, they forgot it. Simple things take them hours to do. Avoid! Add reply
GROTON, CONNECTICUT -- Aug 31, 2012 Went to Midas for an oil change(first time), tire rotation, and have all fluid levels and belts inspected. Paid the coupon price and went home. Two days later when I was going out, notice puddle of oil on the driveway.

Husband checked for a leak and found the drain plug needed 4 full turns to tighten it. Two weeks later after a 700 mile round trip to Maine, another puddle of oil. Husband again checked everywhere for leaks. Finally found that the oil filter was not screwed in tightly. NOTHING like this has EVER happen at either the car dealership or the other places I've had my oil changed. Looking at the receipt it only listed "oil change". Now I don't know if they checked anything else or even rotated the tires.
So much for trusting Midas. Never will again.
NEWBURGH, NEW YORK -- After coming in 2x for an oil change I returned to Newburgh Midas for an oil change which I had a 19.99 coupon for. The manager on duty, DAN, would not honor my coupon & in fact printed out a receipt for 32.64. When I explained that I've come in w/ a 19.99 coupon before & the price never skyrocketed to $32!!! Dan's excuse was "have you seen the price of gas?"
Dan is very unprofessional, rude,& incompetent in customer service! If you walk in & DAN is @ the counter, TURN AROUND & RUN! Thanks to DAN I will never patronize another Midas & will be sure to tell my family & friends!

MOUNT VERNON, WASHINGTON -- Was asked a question by a tech, only to be treated like an idiot. If you don't want to know what I know don't ask. I simply responded to a question and was told that my answer was impossible without the ac working. Then why ask me the question in the first place, because I'm a women and I did not know the correct answer.
I will not take my car back to this place again. Also I was told it would be done in 1 1/2 hours. It was 2 1/2. They did not take my number so they could call so after waiting for my friend to pick me up I realized this before I left. So I asked if they wanted my number so they could call me when the car was ready, his reply was 'if you feel you need to leave it' how else was I going to know when it was done.

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA -- Someone named Sam answered the phone and after I told him I had an oil change coupon for $19.99 he said my car does NOT qualify because he needs to put synthetic oil for my old car and he needs to charge me an extra $15 for it. I told him it is an old car and I never put that expensive oil for it but he refused to honor the coupon and said he will not take the risk. I called Monrovia Midas and I did not mention anything about the previous conversation with Sam in Pasadena, Vince answered the call and he said he will honor the coupon since my car takes regular motor oil. Sam is a crook and he gives Midas a bad name. He is a typical dishonest mechanic. I feel bad for anyone taking his or her car to Midas in Pasadena.1 Replies - Latest reply on 07/26/2012Add reply

CALIFORNIA -- While traveling from Illinois to California my 2011 Chrylser town&country mini van was due for an oil change. I saw a Midas Auto Center at 401 E. Anahiem in Long Beach Ca. advertised an oil change tire rotation for $24.95. Sounded like a great deal. I drove in and asked for the oil change and they advised me that a tire rotation was included at no extra cost. The srevice was good but when I was given my bill it was for $42.72. Thats a long way from 24.95.
