Honest and Kind   5 of 5 stars
Guys behind the counter are polite professionals who won’t try to up sell you on stuff you can’t afford.
Fast friendly service   5 of 5 stars
Midas performed a brake job on my Toyota Tundra. Appointment was arranged for the next day and job completed by noon. No extra or surprise charges!
Where Else?   5 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.
Best place in La Mesa   5 of 5 stars
I always get great service here.
Great service   5 of 5 stars
Definitely will be going back for more services on vehicle!!!
Oil change but no tire rotation   4 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.
Good service.   4 of 5 stars
Overall, very good.
No problem taking care of my oil change   5 of 5 stars
The people at Midas were very professional and took care of the oil in my car. Best of all, the price of the oil change was affordable.
Oil change   5 of 5 stars
Service was great. Oil change time was not. I was there almost 2 hours. Thanks
Great Work!!   5 of 5 stars
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!!
Driveshaft install   5 of 5 stars
Installation went well and no complaints with the work.
Great Work   5 of 5 stars
The two supervisors at that site are great. Every time i show up without a schedule appointment. They always are able to squeeze me in there for my car to have service done on it. I appreciate their customer service when explaining what they recommend and what to look out for on when driving my car on a daily routine.

Fast and Easy   4 of 5 stars
I had to get my car towed to their garage pretty late at night, but they were very accommodating. They started working on my car first thing in the morning, and the problem was fixed well in a very short time. It was very expensive though.
Great job   5 of 5 stars
Always feel comfortable with the estimates I get and the work that is done Thanks guys

Customer Service Coined!   5 of 5 stars
Scott, Manuel, and the crew ALWAYS take great care of my 2008 Dodge Nitro. They listen to my weird way of defining the concern, diagnose the problem, and charge a fair price. I truly trust them. Thank you!
Good Visit - Oil Change & Tire Rotation   4 of 5 stars
Got there before they opened. Was out within an hour. Great Service.
Automobile Repair Awesomeness!!!   5 of 5 stars
I only trust brake work to the LaMesa Midas. I've owned a high mileage Dodge for 5 years and can trust Scott and the crew to keep my brake system operating at its best. Thanks for always taking great care of me and my family safety.
bald tires   5 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.
2004 Ford Explorer   5 of 5 stars
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 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???
Old Time Quality Service   5 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.
BATTERY DETECTION   5 of 5 stars
Radiator   5 of 5 stars
I will tell more people about this Midas. they did a great job. Customer Service is nice.
Midas La Mesa   4 of 5 stars
The service crew were very courteous and knowledgeable. Their display of professionalism is refreshing.
My Ford Truck that was work on at Midas.   1 of 5 stars
The workers there are great they let you know, and show you what wrong with your car and see if you want it done just not just work on it then charge you for it. The manager is very nice and help will.
