quick oil change   5 of 5 stars
Great last minute quick service! Thank you

- Mike V.

Dependable, Reliable, Honest   5 of 5 stars
Even tho I moved 10 miles further north, I continue coming to the Des Plaines Midas on Oakton Street, just as I have for the last 20* years! People ask, "Why do you drive drive all the way over there, when there is one just up the street. My answer: Trust! Six months back, pressed for time, I decided to get my oil changed at that closer Midas. Upon presenting me with the bill, the manager, thinking he can take advantage of me because I am a woman, tells me I have a bad oil leak and need to spend almost $400 to get it repaired. Knowing my car the way I do, I laughed and said, "You and I both know that's not true!" He just stared like a deer caught in headlights! I went back to the Des Plaines Midas last week for another oil change, and the assistant manager, Emerson Iliazi, said nothing about any oil leak when he presented the bill. He did mention the nail in my rear tire, which I already knew about. Nice catch, Emerson!

Excellent & Quick Service   5 of 5 stars
This date although I had reserved online, I hadn't received a call to confirm my appointment, however I went anyway. When I arrived, the computer system was down so service was going to be slower than usual. Well I couldn't tell. The agent was extremely professional and the time I spent there and received service was all within a reasonable time.

I recently brought my car to this Midas shop for an oil change/tire rotation. The Technician quickly notified me that my 2016 vehicle had an oil pan leak. The service was quick and very reasonably priced. I have taken my cars to this location over ten years and they are a very reputable place to have a car serviced. Nice going guys?

Honesty!   5 of 5 stars
Have been going to this Midas location for 14 years. That was two cars and two addresses ago! I no longer live in Des Plaines, but continue to bring my car there, because as a single woman, I appreciate their honesty and fairness. (I wish I could say the same about all Midas locations) I was married to an auto mechanic for 16 years, so I am knowledgeable enough to know when someone is trying to sell me something I know I don't need. Trust is a big issue. This store definately has mine. It was earned, and is well deserved.

- Debra S.

A*****   5 of 5 stars
I will ONLY bring my cars to Midas Des Plaines. This facility used to be directly across from where I work and I had gone there but now I work in Carol Stream and I will still drive to the Midas in Des Plaines (even though there is one a few blocks from my work) Fernando and his crew are AMAZING !! They are always so helpful. Many times I have brought my car in for a noise or something going on and regardless how busy Fernando is he will take it for a test drive with me so I can point out my concern. He takes me through what needs to be done if it's a safety issue and lets me know what can wait a while. Not too many places would do that, most are all about the $ and not their clients concerns and/or budget. I had brought my car to a Firestone once and they told me I needed new tires and a water pump and a couple of other things...Thousands of $$$. I brought it for a second opinion to Fernando and my tires were fine and I just needed a starter. WAYYY cheaper fixing only what needed to be fixed. Give Midas-Des Plaines / Fernando a chance and I guarantee you'll never trust your cars to anybody else!

- Phyllis G.

What started with a muffler ended up involving many parts under the vehicle, including a gas line leak I did not know existed. Fernando Denava explained every issue, showed me all the specific areas that needed attention and outlined all my choices (and asked me what I wanted to do) before he began work. He even made sure I made it to work and back again the next day. When I left, my car was safer than when I bought it (used) the year before. The personal attention taken was outstanding. Best service ever.

- Ted R.

Oil Change *   5 of 5 stars
Had stopped going to Midas for some time but am back now with change of manager. Am satisfied once again. Quick service, pleasant employees. The gentleman who took care of the car explained the brakes status as I had requested that the brakes be checked. Like being able to make appointment on line. Thank you.

Absolutely Love This Place!!!   5 of 5 stars
I was one of those people that always took my car to the dealership for repairs, maintenance, etc. Well one day I finally grew tired of the dealership nickle-and-diming me to death so I went here to have them take a look at a rattling noise that the dealership suggested that I replace my entire exhaust system for $1700. This dealership found the problem (a loose nut) and replaced it for free. I've been going here ever since and have absolutely no complaints.
