Catalytic Converter Repair

5.0 of 5 stars

Got home from work today and saw parts hanging on my sons car. Called Don up at Midas in Crystal Lake to ask if he could get it in today, It was 5:30 and they closed at 6:00. He responded sure. Bring it up and we will look at it. I thought we would need an expensive catalytic converter and it turns out it was only the shield. They were able to fix it and had my son back on the road in 15 minutes. Super nice and very helpful. Would recommend them and will use them again. THANKS GUYS!

I got a full brake job performed on my college son's vehicle, which he drives back and forth to school. The whole experience took less than 24 hours from the time I first logged onto the website, plus I got a $100 off coupon! The manager, Mark, was the friendliest guy I've ever met in any reception area. He explained everything that needed to be done, and the actual work was done perfectly. I'd highly recommend this store!

I would like to give the Midas shop on Crystal Lake a big thumbs up! I recently had some car trouble with my tires that needed immediate attention. The manager there was so helpful and compassionate as I wasn’t expecting to spend 400 on a car repair. I felt I was treated as a person and received great customer service. I would recommend this store to anyone who needs auto repairs. I will be bringing my car in for all services to that Midas location from now on! Kudos, Midas!

First time caller to this business. Could not be happier. Called in, spoke with the manager Don Ottesen, who was very professional and very friendly, and asked when I could get in for them to fix my muffler. He got me in that very moment, called 20 minutes after I dropped my car off and explained to me what they were going to do and gave me the exact price so I wasn’t surprised. Just like he promised and hour and a half later I had my car back in great shape. Thank you to the Crystal lake Midas team!! You guys rock!

We have 3 cars and all have been serviced here. Prompt, friendly & professional service! I had an oil change at "another" oil change place in town who didn't tighten a drip pan when done & I was leaking all week. Brought it to Midas. They tightened it up and topped of my fluids- no charge! Way to go! They'll always have my biz!
