Midas Complaint - The Old Time... Rip Off!
ITASCA, ILLINOIS -- With repeated visits for the Oil change/TIRE ROTATION at the Johnstown N. Y.-Midas store. NOT once was I informed of ANY problems with my car tires.(or the car alignment) Johnstown's store close(very quickly)
I continued with Midas, because at that I WAS a loyal customer, I chose to visit Midas Scotia, NY. It was(NYS inspection)time, I was told I needed NEW tires,(inspection FAILED) I was CHARGED $84.49 for 1 PRIMEWELL tire(a low quality tire)..."CRAZY" ~~ totally a RIP-OFF !(small tire 175/70/13)I paid LESS for my Dodge Dakota 16's tires.(MAVIS tires)....I checked on this Primewell TIRE @ Firestone in Scotia N. Y. it list for $41.99., I wrote a letter to Mr. Katz (Albany's Midas vice President) regarding the price difference. Mr. Katz feels quote " The tire pricing does not at all resemble an "apples to apples comparison". this is a "PRICE GOUGING COMPANY" ~ the IRONIC thing is Midas Service Pledge is - We will always do right by you & car - help keep you safe on the road !!
Midas company was NOT helpful @ ALL.... they took my $92.85 & didn't even blink.
