Service Engine Soon

Paul at Midas Richmond (actually in El Cerrito) took care of the problem promptly. Dashboard computer problem messages can be a challenge. Not for Paul and his ace crew. Thank you Midas for getting me back on the road again in a timely manner, and at a fair price for the repair.

What could have been a $750 job to replace our starter motor was reduced in half by the crack investigative team at El Cerrito Midas. The same solution also solved the issue of the smell of burning oil that two previous service teams had failed to locate.

Great job!

I thought Midas did a great job! It was my first time going there. Our "regular" mechanic retired and it was time for the "routine maintainance" on my daughter's car. The guys were friendly and very professional, and finished the job quickly, which pleased me greatly. I certainly plan to use them in the future.

I like this Midas, but I don't trust this Midas.

3.0 of 5 stars

The people here are incredibly friendly and willing to be of service. I am just very skeptical of what my latest experience entailed. I went in for an oil change about 3 to 4 months before this latest issue after buying a used car and asked for an inspection about this vehicle so I could figure out what needed to be repaired or replaced before any intensely expensive issues arose. I was given an oil change, but got no feedback on the inspection and when inquired about it the mechanic who did the oil change just said "you're good to go." Fast forward 3-4 months later and there is oil pooling underneath my car. It is so bad that they say they need to replace the entire oil pan and had to overnight the piece from Raleigh, NC. I realize that an inspection cannot catch everything or even begin to predict when parts are going to fail, but I just am so skeptical of this place because I was given no information after the oil change about the health of my vehicle that I believe this could have been either completely avoided, or at the very least could have been resolved sooner so that I wouldn't have been charged an additional $150 for overnighting the part and the rapid maintenance. The people here are charismatic and very friendly, and as of now it looks like my car is no longer dripping oil, but I will be taking my car to a dealership for maintenance and repairs in the future.

I can not recommended them enough. My car shut off after work today at 2pm. I was freaking out. I had my infant waiting at daycare. Paul pulled 2 technicians from what they were doing to help me immediately. They fixed my car and I was back on the road by 240. I am so grateful for them!!

A part supporting my mufler came off when I hit a pothole. it was dragging on the ground so I went there. I explained it, they jacked the car up, found the right bolts, put it back in place, and were done in 15 minutes. I was like a dream repair. I will be back when the need arises for sure

I love bringing our vehicles here, as my trust level is high with Paul Vallot, owner of the El Cerrito shop. They do serious repairs here, often at better prices and more quickly than the dealer, where I've gone for many years. I give them the highest praise for keeping our small 'fleet' going in style!

I met Paul at El Cerrito Midas approximately four years ago. My experience with him has changed my point of view of Mechanics. I trust Paul and his team with my vehicles. Through out the years he has proven to be honest and reliable. The team has proven to be both proficient and respectful. I feel very comfortable when leaving my vehicles at El Cerrito Midas.

I brought my Jeep Liberty here for a diagnostic assessment. The problem * the wrong rear differential fluid had been put in at a previous service elsewhere * was identified immediately. These folks got me in right away and remedied the problem. They were courteous and friendly, not only to me, but to every client who came in the door while I waited. I wouldn't hesitate to bring my vehicle here for other problems.
