Communication breakdown…

3.0 of 5 stars

I put in a request online for an appointment, but was never contacted by the store. I go the next morning (today), and was told that I should have received a call that there was no availability. I did NOT miss any calls, nor did I have any voicemails from anyone with Midas at all! I had to settle for making an appointment during the week (more inconvenience). Communication could’ve been better. That was quite an ANNOYING experience!

Had a very awful rubbing/ grinding noise coming from my truck at every speed. Took it in for a diagnosis and they fixed the problem free of charge and only took them about an hour to do so. Didn't know what to expect going into the place. But when I left and drove my truck again, I was extremely satisfied with the all around service I was provided. Would highly recommend groton ct midas to anyone.

I had great service. I even left and came back & could have the service done that day. I was very happy with the service. Midas even found a leak in my radiator which was not found by another service location which just kept filling up my radiator when it was bone dry!

Great service and great price. I'm not sure what point my appointment had though since I still had to wait 45 minutes for the job to be done. That is the standard wait at other places too, that I've taken my car, so no big deal.

the technician I had saved me $65 dollars by putting in a bit more time on the problem instead of just replacing a part. It shows that not only he had my interests at heart but the manager as well. He is the one who sets the tone for his employees.

Locked keys in car

3.0 of 5 stars

Took the car in for a simple state inspection/emissions test. The somehow found a way to lock the keys in the car with it running. Thankfully there is an app for that, and I managed to unlock the door without the use of mechanical tools. Other than that, service was punctual, and met expectations

Appt time

3.0 of 5 stars

I made the appointment for 3:30. My car didn’t even get on the lift until 4:30. I believe appts. Should be respected first then emission testing. A few people who came in after me left way before me! I was there just for front breaks and to fix a light. It took almost 3 hours.

- Frank C.

These guys are just THE BEST

5.0 of 5 stars

I was traveling 250 miles from home and my cars battery died and I was stalled. We got started with a Jump BUT then the engine would not respond to acceleration . Midas was 2 blocks away and I stopped in to themunannounced and explained my problem to Tim. He graciously ran the test protocols almost immediately and found the engine computer had gone off line because of the battery failure. He reset it for me so I could get home with no further problem, I can't say enough good about these guys. 5 stars isn't enough!! Hank Keller Tinton Falls NJ

Emissions Test

5.0 of 5 stars

I have been to this Midas for two emissions tests now and each time the process is smooth and quick. The employees are pretty friendly and they seem like decent people. I haven't needed any work on my ride lately so I can't speak to their quoting process or work quality, but I would consider them the next time I need something done.

Tim Crippin, Manager provides Excellent Service

5.0 of 5 stars

I wish to thank the entire crew at Midas, Groton, CT for their continued great service and ability to troubleshoot my auto's maintenance for the past ten-years! Tim always remembers me and my "Lil'Red", Daewoo, Lanos Sport, that is difficult to service because it's no longer made, which is a challenge but no problem for Tim Crippin who takes the extra time to keep me on the road. Simply said, "Runs-Good"! Thank you. best regards, Robert

I go here for all my car services. The mechanics are excellent and will bend over backwards to help. I have called 15 minutes before close asking for them to check a sound I heard and my tire pressure and they have helped me graciously. The girls that run the front desk are really helpful and give you the information about the vechiles in layman terms. They have been nothing but courteous and helpful. They work with you with payments and making sure the work gets done in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

By itself, it is pretty much any other auto repair center. But what really sold me was the genuinely kind sales lady behind the counter. My receipt names her as C. Holt, and I've never had better service. She made the wait comfortable, seemed knowledgeable, and exercised extreme patience and understanding in not just my service, but in the other customers I witnessed her serve. Went way above and beyond that of a normal Auto Shop salesperson. I'll go back to Midas when my car gives me a reason to seek an Auto Shop.

- Benjamin G.

wonderful service*

5.0 of 5 stars

The people at this shop were very helpful in explaining the work that my car needed, and they helped me decide whether or not my car was worth fixing. I love the fact that they warned me ahead of time and showed me the issues with my car. I was totally satisfied with the work they did, and they did it so fast*
