Midas Auto Repair - Installed Timing Belt Wrong and Lied About Part
2002 Dodge Neon - Complaint
VICTORIA, TEXAS -- Took my 2002 Dodge Neon for preventive Maintenance. Timing belt, water pump, replacement, Brake master cylinder. They informed me two days later my timing belt was not needed and I agreed for them to use their timing belt kit. A few days later they said the car was ready. Pushy and arrogant.
Two days later my car would not start. I called Midas to find problem and they towed vehicle back to their shop. Two days later they called me back with news the timing belt slipped from the water pump they installed I gave them to install. They said parts were free but labor was a charge. Then I went to shop they changed their mind and said 1/2 on labor and no free parts. If the water pump caused the problem why did they install a faulty water pump? The cost will be $1496.00 to fix engine head.
About 4 days later I got vehicle back with oil in radiator, loose bolts on rocker arm assembly, loose air conditioner lines. 4 months later and 3 visits to other mechanics to try to fix car. The engine light came on from lack of compression, the cam wore out from not being adjusted from the value job.
Do not go to Midas. They are cheaters!!!!!
