I know how important CSAT models are for companies and employees alike. Be sure to recognize your Central Ave Albany teammates (Shawn, Dave, and team) on their exemplary customer focus and quality of work. When you go out of your way to take care of people (and not always easy with some members of the public), more often than not your customers will take care of you! Awesome job and I appreciate all you do.

I have had my car in on several occasions; a 13 year old car that I'm not ready to part with yet. The managers and mechanics always do a great job, even when its bad news, they give all the options and never pressure you to get service done. Also, when they do the work it is done right the first time.

OUTSTANDING Customer Service

5.0 of 5 stars

Very appreciative of Bob’s referral from the East Greenbush Midas to the 1722 Central Avenue, Colonie Midas. I was in dire need of a flat tire repair, especially because I was going out of town a couple of hours away. The assistant manager, Shawn, set up the appointment for me while I was at the EG location. These managers truly have teamwork and genuinely care about their customers. Shawn took care of my scheduled oil change, fixed the tire in no time flat (no pun intended), and as requested made certain all my other tires had the proper air pressure and all fluids were full to ensure I would have a safe trip. While my CRV was being serviced, I had the most pleasant experience in their customer area. There were FREE cold beverages and FRESHLY MADE popcorn available to me and the TV was better than the one I have at home! Shawn is so nice. My wish is that every customer service person could be as friendly and courteous as him. When driving my car I must say it rode so well and I felt so confident that I finally found a place that I could believe in. You bet I will make my next appt here. Great job Shawn. Thank you!

New manager Robin was great to deal with. I have three vehicles Midas services and they do a great job.

Ed, Anthony and DJ are great to work with.

The best Customer service ANYWHERE/ looking out for the custumer

5.0 of 5 stars

I went in to this Midas store just to get a oil change, I was talking to the Dm Bobby and he was very nice, calm and informative. After my oil change Bobby asked me if he could " show me a few things about my car". Bobby showed me that my brakes where shot and my tires were on there way out as well. If i went anywhere else ( and i have) they would have just done what i asked but this team went above and beyond for me. Now this was definitely something i was expecting to pay or do. I called back the next day and spoke to the manager Robin, he as well was very nice and informative. After getting more details i made a appointment but i still wasn't ready to spend that kind of money. so 4 hours after i was supposed to be there he Robin called me. Robin wasn't calling to see why i didn't show up, he was just asking me if i was okay because of everything that is going on with my car. So now feeling better on about the purchase i made an appointment and showed up, thats were i met Chase, this guy made the experience for me. not only was he friendly but he held a nice convo, was very personable and made every one happy and smile. not only is he perform the best customer service i have every seen ANYWHERE but it was very busy. Chase kept up with the traffic and every interaction the customer smiled and laughed . you guys just made a life time customer. thank you

I was getting a "little" overdue on my oil change and my oil light low came on. I was trying to stretch the oil change out a couple days to also be in time for my inspection. I called Steve @ Midas, he got me in quickly to top my oil off and made me an appt for the following weekend for oil change and inspection. When I got to my appt I was in on time and out in a super reasonable time. Steve and crew are always super friendly, talk me though car needs (if applicable) and always work with my family to get us in when we need to. Also, I love that they always have the food drive going to help our community. Super Awesome!

I stopped in today for an oil change. New manager Steve Vincent was there to greet me. After going to a competitor for some time it was a pleasure to have service done by techs that know what they were doing. While waiting Steve chatted with the customers and was very personable. I have 3 vehicles and will recommend Midas to all my friends. It feels good to be treated like a customer and not just a number in the waiting line. Good job Midas for having a enthusiast crew.

Neutral Safety Switch

5.0 of 5 stars

Recent inspection of my Jeep Cherokee showed that the neutral safety switch was malfunctioning. Fortunately, only the backup lights were effected. But to insure that it did not fail further and prevent the car from starting a replacement was recommended. Pam and Bob secured the correct part and arranged a time to do the job. Eddie easily and quickly made the repair and everything works fine. I have been bring my Cherokee to this Midas for all my repairs because they are efficient, fast, accurate and reasonably priced.
