Great experience definitely going back!

5.0 of 5 stars

This location closes at 3 and they stayed late to work on my car because I needed new breaks an oil change and new shock absorbers. They are truly all about customer service, told me what I needed and didn’t try to sell me anything more than what I needed. Going back for all my car needs from here on out. Thanks Midas!

Bad customer service

3.0 of 5 stars

We have been using the La Mesa shop for a few years, mainly oil changes, service has been going down. When done they do not call. 1st time no call, employee told my wife that he was too busy to call. 2nd time no call, the store manager made excuses for the same employee that had gone home for the day. If there is a 3rd time they will lose our business.

Very nice and knowledgeably service managers who also Took the time to explain services being done for my car that would keep it in great running condition. Thank you-

Estimate and the amt. charged for oil change were the same

3.0 of 5 stars

I like that the estimate and the amount I was charged was the same. The attendant told me I needed new tires even though I did not. He also did not place a sticker in my windshield telling me when I need to return. I mentioned it and he still did not do it. My first and last name were misspelled.

Oil change

5.0 of 5 stars

Went in for an oil change. I stayed to wait for my car which I normal don’t stay. They got my car in as soon as they had an available spot. Completed the oil change and did the inspection of the car. The internet was down in the area but I was still able to leave payment and they send an email copy when they got service again. Good visit

Oil Change/Tire Rotation

3.0 of 5 stars

I’m a little disappointed in what occurred after the oil change. I’m still not sure if the Tire Rotation even happened. Also, I thought Midas is suppose to check all fluid evels in the car and obviously they didn’t because my car almost over heated because it didn’t have much coolant in it and this was caught by Ray’s Car Care 2 days after getting an oil change.. So, I’m truly disappointed!!

- Tonita B.

Best price for oil check and other inspection

4.0 of 5 stars

Amazing service! I made an appointment and my car was checked right away to do an oil change. Pricing for an oil change is very reasonable for a basic one and I would come again. Everyone was hospitable and welcoming. I wait about 45 minutes. I was told that I should get other things done such as changing my air filter, wipers replaced, and my two front tires. I did some research to get a better deal (sorry, I’m frugal) and when I went elsewhere they recommended me all four tires to be replaced whereas at Midas only mentioned the two. So I guess it would be best to tell customers their best judgement and suggestion so it could prevent any other damages in the long run.

Quick, Professional & Reasonable

5.0 of 5 stars

I was leaving town the next day and needed an oil change. I found Midas on Google. They had good reviews so I called to see if they could do a last minute oil change. The man who answered the phone was very polite and helpful, and informed me of the special Midas was running and scheduled me for an immediate service. I am very pleased with the professional service I received.

- Carrie G.


3.0 of 5 stars

The services I had done took a very long time. I had an oil change, wheel alignment, AC charged, a hose replaced. I brought my car in approximately 10am and did not get it back around 4pm. Now there is a noise coming from my right passenger side of the tire. I don't know what to think.

Efficient, fair, skilled, professional, and accommodating! Ive been looking for a high quality and affordable place for my car maintinance for two years! This is it! I will always get my cars work done here. Dont listen to people who say go to a smaller privately owned shop. No, no,no! They dont provide the warranty or quality parts and labor.I needed oil change, air filter new(They had it there already!)alignment and exhaust repair due to a crack. My car sounds and runs like brand new. I paid a fourth here, compared to other quotes. Seriously, You wont be taken care of better anywhere else!

Where Else?

5.0 of 5 stars

I previously wrote a positive review during my last visit. Today while waiting to get my car serviced, I saw one of the workers tell a customer that his oil reading on his vehicle showed his vehicle did not require an oil change at this time. Although the customer proceeded with the oil change, where else would a service location be that truthful with you? Props to this location, and the staff.

Oil change but no tire rotation

4.0 of 5 stars

Had coupon for oil change at 18.99. When I called to get apt told guy what type vehicle had and able to do apt within 30 minutes of call. When got there and vehicle on rack, they told me coupon only covered 5 qts and my vehicle needed six quarts. So I was charged a different amount. Wish they had told me this prior to starting work. My front tires were below the minimum thread to allow them to rotate. They did give me a quote for new tires.

Every time I get my car service at La Mesa’s Midas, they ALWAYS do a fantastic job! What I really like about them, they check your car to make sure your car is safe for you to drive. I believe their prices are reasonable and they do double checks on your car before you leave to make sure your car is ok. OUTSTANDING JOB!!

bald tires

5.0 of 5 stars

I have been going to Midas for a few years now for my 2001 Saturn. I came in for the oil change and they noticed my front tires were going bald. Bad thing when I just got new tires. So I got a alignment. They had figured out the frame was bent a little. It was aligned as best as it could go. Long story short with new tires and the alignment it is turning the best it has ever done before. Hope my tires last longer now.

I have been taking my 04 Explorer to Midas in La Mesa for many years. Mostly because I feel that I can trust their work to be quality. I am confident knowing they will not over sell me on services I do not need. But they are honest in describing the trouble and recommended services needed. All the guys working at this location are great !

Oil Fill Policy Change

3.0 of 5 stars

Since my last review, the Midas at University and Massachusetts has changed their policy on oil changes. My oil dipstick was only at 1/2(between high and low markings)on the dip stick immediately after they changed the oil. They assured me that it was at a safe level; which was not my argument. The argument was that over the last 13 years that I have owned my truck, my oil had always been topped off to the full mark after an oil change (including their facility). I agree that it might be a safe level; although if they cut corners with fluids, what else might they cut corners with???

- Larry W.

Old Time Quality Service

5.0 of 5 stars

This auto service/repair shop, under Scot's direction, has the "old days" quality SERVICE, feel. All of the staff takes the extra time to ensure that they understand the customer's concerns and provide corrective possibilities; with no pressure for having the services/repairs completed. They go the extra-mile not only to maintain your auto in a safe manner, they also top off all of your fluids including windshield washer fluid (several repair facilities have forgotten the meaning of "Customer Satisfaction" for rushing vehicles through to increase the proverbial "bottom line"). I strongly recommend the Midas on Massachusetts & University Avenue for any automotive concerns.
