I had a specific problem with the vehicle which I needed to have performed, then I get a long laundry list of items recommended to be performed which were about 10 times the cost of what I originally pointed out to have done. I didn't request these items to be performed, nor did I ask for the wasted effort for the diagnosis. I explained that I knew what the problem was and simply needed the work to be performed.I felt time was wasted performing an inspection when the time could have been better served performing the repair instead.

Told me I need a new manifold cat. Never offered to show me their findings. Don't feel I was told correctly. I was from out of town and felt like they want to try and take advantage of. If they truly found a problem of that magnatute, why didn't they prove to me it was true?

Everybody that I spoke to was very helpful and explained details thoroughly. I have had poor experiences with other auto shops in the past but this was the complete opposite. I felt comfortable and welcomed, I was frequently updated throughout the service of my vehicle, and I was given genuine and thoughtful recommendations for products and services.

Quote of $200 to replace turn signal light. Did it myself and it took less than 10 minutes. Totally stunned at price quotation to replace a light bulb.

The service was great and customer service was excellent, friendly staff, got me home with out asking questions. It's my new midas, just moved here and was worried about a new midas shop because the midas i was going to I've been using for years, but I'm completely satisfied and it's my new midas.

The staff was quick, friendly, and helpful. My oil change was very fast and the communication afterward (letting me know my car was done, the checklist with pictures) was awesome. They also let me know something other than my oil change was wrong and gave me a great deal with a coupon that technically didn't fit the description. Great experience!

Scheduling an appointment with Midas was very easy to do online. I was contacted by an employee immediately. I had a change of plans and needed to drop my vehicle off instead of wait at the store and the staff was very accommodating! They also worked with me to arrange a time for me to pick my car up. I know an oil change only takes 45 minutes but they did not mind holding my car until I got off of work! They honored the coupon I had and the entire experience was amazing! The summary of the free inspection was also very easy to read and helped me identify possible work I will need done on my car in the future and how urgent the work needing to be done is.

My first price quote to replace my alternator was $800+. Way to much! Second quote 20 minutes later $600+. Still too much. Third quote 15 minutes later $500+. All I want is an honest price the first time. Why should I have to barter down the price to a reasonable number. This is why people don't trust mechanics.

Not only did they fix the issue the actually went above and beyond and fixed a side mirror that was malfunctioning for a while. Veryyy impressed!

When I checked my car in it was fairly seamless process. I dropped the car off, they told me what they were going to do for the service I requested and asked why I thought I needed the service. They completed the job in good time. The guy at the front desk told me what they did and how it went. Overall one of the best experiences I have had at a mechanic shop.

The customer service was the right kind I was looking for. Genuine hospitality and charamstic intuition is all what came to the mind when thinking of the (fairly new) Midas in downtown Columbia.

I hope no one is dumb enough to pay $100 for an oil change. apparently they thought i would. as soon as i said something the price magically dropped to what it should be. just pathetic that shops still do this

I brought my car in because my oil light was on. I wanted the technicians to look into the OIL LIGHT. They couldn't get the oil light to come on, even though they "test drove it a bunch" (must not have been that long because the oil light has been coming on consistently within ten minutes of driving), so they ran codes and ended up triggering the CEL, which hadn't been on for months! They received a code saying the engine was misfiring, so the technician went inside the engine to determine the cause of the misfire. I get how that seems like a totally rational and helpful thing to do, but that wasn't an issue when I brought the car in. I don't remember whether they called and asked me first, I feel like they didn't. Then I get a call saying my it will cost $760 to fix a misfiring issue that I didn't even have going in. To the front desk attendant's credit they discounted the diagnostic fee so the total quote ended up being about $624, but still a lot for a repair that in my mind wasn't needed in the first place. TLDR: I brought my car in for an oil issue that wasn't fixed. I left paying $152 for them to trigger my check engine light. Now both lights are on. Super frustrating.

My reasoning for not being highly satisfied with my service is not related to the oil change I received but rather the carelessness with the replacement on the caps of my rims after my tire rotation. After getting home, I noticed that they had been re-installed improperly and were jammed in the wrong position. I spent over 30 minutes carefully removing them with a screwdriver and replacing them in the right position so that I would not lose them during travel. It is quite simple to install/remove them usually, and I am discouraged that someone would not take the few extra minutes to ensure that they are re-installed properly after service.

When I called to schedule an appointment, I was able to talk to someone very quickly who also listened to the issue I was having. When arriving, it was very easy to see how to get in the building because it was clearly marked. The staff was courteous, and let me know there was an issue with a part coming in a bit later than originally thought. The way that they handled the situation still made me feel like they wanted to get it taken care of so that made me still feel good about the visit.

"My first experience was a plus. The service was quick, convenient and friendly. The only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because I asked that they check why my airbag light was on and they forgot to check it. I'll definitely go back for my next se"
