Amazing!   5 of 5 stars
Brandon was extremely helpful filling in at the Saratoga branch! He should become manager. He is much better and more qualified then the current manager at the Saratoga branch. Great employee! Great service!

Very professional   5 of 5 stars
The staff was very professional and did a fine job with my car inspection. And they didn't try to "upsell" me on anything I really didn't need.

- Mike P.

Happy   3 of 5 stars
They fixed what was wrong, the vehicle was not ready for pickup 6pm, so they had to go out and get parts at the last minute. I believed is that because the customer was waiting, the manager kept putting Jimmy off my vehicle on another. So at the end of the shop had to stay open until my truck was done around 7pm. It was good thing that I did not have plans that night or lost work because it. Go job on the repair, bad on Customer Services

- William W.

Top Quality Service!!!   5 of 5 stars
It is always a great pleasure for me to do business at this store. They are a very professional staff and it is the shop that I prefer when it comes the time to perform repairs on my vehicle.

Amazing customer service!   5 of 5 stars
Visited this Midas location and from the moment I got there, Brandon was amazing! Great customer service, in and out for an oil change and tire rotation within 30 minutes. This was absolutely the best experience I've had for these services, not only at various Midas locations, but other businesses I've frequented for these services. I plan on using this location going forward for other services in the future!

Fantastic Experience   5 of 5 stars

Jim is the Man!!   5 of 5 stars
Jim was working late one night and still allowed me to leave my truck there over night. Completed the work quickly and was a huge help. This shop is the only place I trust to work on my truck. Awesome mechanics very honest and diligent. Thanks for all the help over the years!

- Nathan K.

Great Experience   5 of 5 stars
I had stopped in just to get some air for a tire that had a slow leak and Richard came over to assist. Not only did he offer to find the flat and fix it as a free service, but he offered to check everything under the hood and filled my wiper fluid, power steering fluid and coolant ( I did not realize they all needed to be filled and was so grateful he checked!). To top it all off, he showed me that the battery had corrosion at the channels and sprayed/cleaned them for me as I watched. I felt that this Midas and Robert really cared and believe it or not, they offered these as free services! It was a Godsend! When I met Derek the manager, he explained they do these things as a courtesy. I was so surprised and thankful, and they were so kind and professional! What an awesome place. I highly recommend them. I feel so safe on the road now and will definitely be returning.

Friendly Staff, Informative   5 of 5 stars
I've been going to Midas for the last 6 or 7 years now for several different vehicles. I can say that overall Midas is a great place to bring your car to- I currently have a 2011 Mini Cooper and Mini always recommends going to their dealership for servicing due Mini's unique build. I've only been a few times for large jobs. I always bring my car to Midas for oil changes, inspections, and regular maintenance. Staff are friendly and always take the time to let me know what's going on with my car. They are not pushy, but do let me know of any future problems that may be due for repair down the road & will visually show me, instead of sending me on my way with a hefty invoice & no information, which Keeler Mini has often done in the past. Midas also offers competitive prices and always has coupons available on their website. I was just there yesterday for an annual NYS car inspection and ended up only paying $10.50 with a 50% off coupon! Overall, great place to bring any vehicle for routine maintenance & repairs! Trustworthy and knowledgeable staff & they offer competitive prices. I'll continue to use Midas for my Mini & other vehicles in the future. Best, Nicole

Wonderful   5 of 5 stars
Thank you to service tech Chet for your outstanding customer service. For ensuring the safety of my vehicle. And most importantly, I thank you for praying for me. For showing me that good honest people do still exist. When I return for my vehicle services, I would like if you were the only one to work on my vehicle. Thank you so much. God bless you.

- Maria S.

Very Pleased   5 of 5 stars
They checked my vehicle for me. Tech was Chet. Was very proficient, very kind, and full of smiles. Very personable. Explained to me what the issues were, and made recommendations for what I would need, to ensure the safety of my vehicle. As I watched him with my vehicle, I saw how dedicated he was to make sure things were tip top. I wish there were more techs like him. And to top off my experience there, the best thing was Chets departing words as my vehicle was finished... He said "May God bless you and keep you safe in all your travels." I will for sure be returning to him for any of my vehicles service needs. I prefer that Chet be the only one to work on my vehicle.

battery problems   3 of 5 stars
Less than 1 1/2 yrs. ago, I had a battery problem with my used, 2012 handicapped van. They were very nice, and fit me in, replacing it with an expensive, but appropriate heavy-duty battery. The battery light just went on yesterday & I shouldn't need a new battery yet; I put very little mileage on, per year. We'll see what they say tomorrow! Mileage is at 71,000. Stay tuned!

- debbie k.

Best Shop in Albany!   5 of 5 stars
I am new to the area purchased a used truck over a year ago. And this is the only place I trust. Gary Lou and Chet have always been honest efficient and loyal. Exactly what you look for in mechanics! They’ve taken care of any and all issues with my 2002 Ford Ranger. I highly recommend this specific shop to all my friends and co workers non stop. Thanks for all the help fellas! Great job!

Awesome service!   5 of 5 stars
I have been taking my car into this shop for about a year now. Every time I have visited, they have gotten my car in quickly despite being busy or me showing up late in the day without an appointment. The guys here have been very accommodating on each of my visits. Most importantly, I have always felt that they are being honest with me when I take my car in. I have never felt pressured to buy anything I don't need, nor have I had any mysterious "issues" arise with my car the moment it drives into the shop. I would highly recommend this location and will continue to take my vehicle here for the foreseeable future.

Fantastic Service!   5 of 5 stars
I was coming up to UAlbany from Binghamton to visit my brother, and my dash went blank and my car started smoking. My family and I brought it into Midas at 12pm on a Saturday. I was panicked that I would not be able to get back to Binghamton with my car, but the employees reassured me, and were very friendly and helpful. They ran a diagnostic on my car, and had it fixed and back to me by 5:30 the same day. The professionalism shown by the employees and service provided was outstanding! I would highly recommend this shop!

Awesome Service and Great People   5 of 5 stars
You won't find a more honest group of mechanics.The front desk guys are always courteous and give updates regularly on whats going on with your vehicle .They bring you right into the car bay area and show you exactly whats going on and what they are going to do to fix it.Been here several times and each time they do what they say and do it right the first time.

- matt h.

A great team   5 of 5 stars
I was made to feel that I was their only customer. They took the time to explain what my car needed and why by physically pointing out the issues. They worked with me on price and personally made sure I had a ride to and from home and work while my car was under service. I couldn't be more satisfied. they went above and beyond.

- Teresa M.

This place is the best   5 of 5 stars
I have been taking my car here for the last few oil changes and recently had my air conditioner recharged. I feel like the people here are extremely competent, and I never feel like they are pushing me to buy unnecessary stuff or trying to up-sell me. They are very professional and polite, the work is always completed in a timely fashion, and its always just a great experience from start to finish. So pleased with the service here.

- Jennifer P.

Awesome Team   5 of 5 stars
Went in for some maintenance with no appointment and Gary the manager was awesome, friendly and knowledgeable. Getting me in was no problem.The service people working on the car were fast and did so with purpose. After I was all done Gary gave me a run down of what was done and needs and suggestions. Not like a sales person, but someone who actually cared about safety and the well being of my car.. I will definitely go back for all my service needs

Another great experience at Midas   5 of 5 stars
I stopped in Midas yesterday and they were swamped. The gentleman at the counter, Gary, explained to me that the wait would be a while but they'd get to me as soon as possible. He was direct and friendly. As I waited I watched as the hardworking mechanics worked on the vehicles in a timely fashion. My mechanic's name was George, who was approachable and professional. After my vehicle was serviced, I went back to speak with George about the repairs that were made. He politely and thoroughly explained the repairs, showed me the old brake pads that were removed, and informed me of what other upcoming repairs would be needed.

Relieved   5 of 5 stars
I called Midas less than an hour before they closed with my muffler hanging off of my car. The person who answered the phone was very nice and told me to come right over and he would see what he could do. I was very upset by the time I arrived and the staff at Midas was very reassuring and helpful. Once all was said and done the repair they did for me was much less than I thought it would be with muffler repair. The staff was amazing and I could not recommend anyone else but Midas for repair work. Thank you again for helping and being so considerate.

- MaryEllen T.

Excellant service   5 of 5 stars
I recently had noticed my alternator belt needed immediately replacing. Brought it to Midas as a first time customer. A Technician, Hugo, Greeted me before I got out of my Truck, asking what Midas can do for me today. I informed him of my concern and as I was walking in the office door, my truck was being driven into the garage. Within a reasonable amount of time, my truck was done. I was impressed. I will be a returning customer. Thanks Midas!

- Daniel H.

Great Job, Timely Service   5 of 5 stars
Took my car in for an oil change & tire rotation. They noticed my registration sticker wasn't affixed to my windshield yet. They took care of it without having to be asked. It may seem like a little thing, but I just hadn't had the time or a scraper handy to do it myself, so I was pleasantly surprised! I grabbed a bite to eat while they worked on my vehicle. They said they would call me when it was ready, and they did. Service was completed within the time frame promised.
