The communication with the manager was excellent. He explained what they did to solve the problem and we are very happy with the oil change we received.Our family has used this Midas store for several years and with many various vehicles. We have always been very satisfied, even with the many changes in this locations' managers.

I've been going to this Midas location for the past 5 years or so when it was owned/managed by Ron. Ron did a fantastic job, was friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. He communicated what was wrong accurately and gave options for prices to fix and if something could be fixed in the future. A few years ago Ron sold the business/retired. Whoever is running this location now has, in my opinion degraded the level of service. The prices and what exactly they were recommending to be fixed was not well communicated and they assumed on the phone that I would fix whatever they suggested and pay whatever price. I had to specifically ask what was being fixed and how much each item was going to cost. On top of that they were unable to find the original problem I brought the vehicle in for (shifting issue on manual transmission). Unfortunately I will be finding a new mechanic now. Wishing you all the best.

The store manager (forget his name, but new to the position I found while chatting with him) running the front was very nice, efficient, and explained things clearly, while not being pushy with a sale.

"Improperly installed fuel pump causing the fuel tank to leak. Caused several faults to the fuel system due to poor diagnostic and improper installation. Fuel gauge now doesn?t work damaged by fuel pump installation. They put in two fuel pumps that both failed and caused the control modular to fail. Took to an auto inspector and another mechanic and had to pay to have it fixed correctly. They said it was embarrassing the work done by Midas. Very disappointed and disappointed in the little money we got back considering the additional Damge to the car by Midas. Also the fact that my child was driving this car and gas was leaking out. Never will we use or recommend Midas. I have a report, photos and video of the damage as proof."

I was visiting family out of state and needed an oil change. I was told it would be $79 plus tax. I was able to use a coupon from the web site to save $20 so I thought I would be pay 59 plus tax. I ended up paying $81.12 after tax as they adding on labor and disposal fees. I have been satisfied with Midas in the past but feel it is misleading when you quote a price that turns out not to be what you owe. I will think twice next time when I need an oil change as far as who to use.
