Midas Complaint - Do Not Go Here - Huge Rip Off
MILWAUKEE, WI -- Took car into my local Midas (76th & Layton, Milwaukee, WI) for an oil change. Since the car is shaking when I apply my brakes, I asked them to do an inspection. They told me I needed new struts and mounts and gave me an estimate of more than $1,700 to do the work. This sounded way to high, especially considering that the last time I took my car in for an oil change (a different place about four months ago) they didn't indicate that I needed such major work. When I got home, I took their estimate list and checked the part numbers on-line. Each part listed was $50-$200 less than what they quoted me.
I know places mark-up, but this is way out of line. Will definitely be taking my car elsewhere to have the work done.
