Amazing service. The manager was very nice. They made me feel welcomed and they were fast and easy to work with. Definitely would go back if anymore problems occur with my car !
Simple inspection   5 of 5 stars
Was supposed to be a simple inspection but they are thorough and noticed the frame had rusted out just behind the passenger wheel well and needed repair or else the frame could snap and it wouldn't be pretty when that happens. So now all is well.

Love it
Great Work   5 of 5 stars
I will continue to bring my vehicles to the center, because of their professional, competent, and cheerful way of doing business. I brought in my fathers wheelchair van and they satisfied all my needs. Excellent work. Excellent crew.
Shop local   5 of 5 stars
When rocky found out that my first visit here was not a good one, he called me and asked for another chance to make things right. I brought my vehicle in and in under an hour the inspection and oil change were completed and he was ordering a part my calicoes needed. I really appreciate the service and consideration! I will be coming back!

The staff is very friendly. They work pretty fast and every single time I get my car back rhere are absolutely no issues!
Wouldn't trust anyone else   5 of 5 stars
I have to say that Jason and Rocky are EXCEPTIONAL. Always honest and professional and willing to go out of their way to make sure that you are getting what you need to keep your car running at the best value possible. They don't make you do unnecessary procedures just to make a buck. First place I think about whether it is an oil change or annual inspection, to tires and major engine work. TOP NOTCH!
Always great!   5 of 5 stars
We are so blessed and thankful to have Rocki and his brother and his wonderful mechanics working on our vehicles..
Satisfied Customer   5 of 5 stars
Very clean shop, friendly and fair service, the gentlemen at this shop stick to their word they don't jerk you around like other shops , you get what you ask for,and it costs what they say it will cost.... it's my first time at the shop and I will be a returning customer :)
Rocky saved my trip!   5 of 5 stars
On my road trip from Nebraska, I realized my brakes needed attention. Since I rely on my local Midas mechanics in Omaha, I called the garage in Watertown. Rocky fit me in, replaced the front brakes on my F250, changed the oil, and consulted with my mechanic back home. Great service!
Always great!   5 of 5 stars
Always great work. Rockie and his mechanics always does a great job and gets my car back to me working better than when I brought it in. We always go back for whatever may happen.
Highly recommend!   5 of 5 stars
I went in today because my brake fluid light was on...the owner had them top off my fluid at no charge! It was much appreciated and very kind! Thank you!
Highly Recommended   5 of 5 stars
I have gotten work done on my vehicle here multiple times and they never let me down! The team here at Midas gets people in and out quickly, while returning a great product. They are friendly, and keep their customers involved in how the vehicle is progressing and do a great job explaining why they are doing what they are doing. They also don't quit until the job is done. I had an appointment at 5:30 and they typically close at 7, but worked until 7:30 so they could complete the task at hand. I would recommend them to anyone!
Service   5 of 5 stars
Satisfied customer   5 of 5 stars
I have taken my van to Midas for the past 5 years and have been very pleased with their services. They always service my van in a timely manner and are very friendly and professional. If there is an emergency they ensure that my van is operational and safe to drive. I highly recommend them.

Trust worthy   5 of 5 stars
So my story for this place my husband and I had came to water town to pay bills. On our way home our car just turned off we were stranded trying to get home to our kids feeling worried and scared on how are we going to get home or wondering what are we going to do knowing we only had a couple of bucks in our pocket we are trying to get back on our feet and stuck with the feeling can this get any worse my husband made some calls and no luck feeling like the world's going to end my husband calls this place called Midas he talks to a owner who said he would help he drives to us on his own free will and helps us get to his shop then braking down again in middle of the road he gets out and helps push my explorer into his shop with his buddy's we find out the alternator and battery is done we go and sit in the office waiting to here the damage of how much it's going to be scared wondering thinking of how we are to pay for this I was shocked to hear that he was going to cover it shocked I wasn't even sure I heard correctly he assured me that he was going to cover this never in my life have I met anyone that kind I'm used to people doing me wrong and ******** me over but never anyone who actually cares enough to help a stranger in need without getting anything in return for a long time I didn't think people like that existed but I felt truly blessed today and was blessed to meet these people I always thought that auto shops took more then they should and always sketchy about them but this place has some wonderful people good hearted men who truly understand and care so if you take your car here I'm sure your car is in the best care possible and they deserve more then 5 stars
Flat tire   5 of 5 stars
I was driving home in the poring rain and all of a sudden hit a nail. I freaked out cause I didn't know how to change a flat and saw there was a midas up ahead. I pulled in, got my kids out of the car, and went into the store almost in tears because they were about to close. The two men in the store were so nice and helpful and fixed my tire right away. I couldn't be more thankful for their kindness and amazing customer service. I absolutely will be back! Thank you so much!

My Go To Place for Great Service!   5 of 5 stars
A great place to take your car for service. Always greeted with a smile and "How can I help you today?" Rocky is on top of everything that goes on in his shop and keeps his customers informed on whats going on with their vehicle. I like the fact that Midas doesn't try to up-sell repairs or products. Keep up the good work guys!
Great customer service   5 of 5 stars
Rocky and his team provide excellent customer service each and every time I visit their shop for service. I live in Ontario, Canada and go there for all my oil changes. They have serviced 2 different vehicles for me over the last 3 years and I have always been pleased with their service and work. They go the extra mile!
Always honest.   5 of 5 stars
Truly satisfied with an oil change and minor repair work I recently had to get on my car. These boys always are straight forward and caring. Quote was worst case scenario and ended up being way cheaper. :-)
Excellent service!   5 of 5 stars
Owner and employees are extremely professional and explain/show you everything that they are doing and why. Also, they are flexible with payment options if needed. Excellent service and I would personally recommend.
Excellent service!   5 of 5 stars
The owner and his crew are extremely professional and kind! They provide quality service to each person who walks through the doors. Very personalized care and so appreciative for their help! Lucky to have a great quality service like them in the Watertown area.
Awesome every time   5 of 5 stars
Rocky and his brother are always so kind! My husband and I love coming here for all of our vehicle services! Always trying to get you the best deal and are so humble to have you as a customer. The store is very clean, also!
Aplus service   5 of 5 stars
Felt impelled to write this review as too many times people and businesses don't receive the credit they deserve. My Mitsubishi Outlander was having window problems and it was discovered it needed some sort of assembly.Thinking to myself"great" this should be fun getting this fixed because of my past experience getting parts.Went to Midas where Rocky and staff were both professional and sincere.Had the part ordered and window fixed in amazingly a short period of time.HIGHLY recommend this shop to anyone,couldn't be more pleased with the quality of service and professional attitude I was shown
Helped me out   5 of 5 stars
I am traveling cross country towing my 5th wheel with my Ford F-250 truck. I had installed oversized mud flaps to keep from chipping the front of the RV. One of the mud flaps had come loose from its bracket and was flopping around. I was afraid I would lose it. Rocky Dunn at the Watertown Midas shop on ******* Street jumped right in and helped me out when I stopped by their place. One of his guys improvised a hookup with zip ties and I was out in minutes. And, they did not charge me. That is what I call "good old fashioned customer service." Thanks Rocky.
great service   5 of 5 stars
Great staff very professional they diagnosed the problem with my expedition when other places wouldn't even touch it . they saved me a lot of money by just not throwing parts at it.thank you very much we will be back and recommend this place to everyone.
Great Service   5 of 5 stars
Military friendly, along with all around genuine care for you and your vehicle. Quality service every time. I have spent more than $1000 and appreciate all they do. Everything works great!
Great customer service!   5 of 5 stars
My friends and I were driving around and we noticed that our other friend had a light out so we had her pull over so that she wouldn't get a ticket. A guy in a car pulled over and asked if we needed assistance and he said his name was Rocky and he worked for Midas. He taught us about a loose connection in her vehicle and that's why her light went out.I have already recommended Midas to my friends because of Rocky's very professional and friendly service!
OUTSTANDING SHOP!   5 of 5 stars
I have worked at a Midas in the past, so when I moved to this area I thought I would give them a shot. Thinking this is a Military town they look for Soldiers and how to get our money. This shop looks to take care of everybody. Their work is top notch, and ANY time I need something done that is above my ability's, Rocky is the ONLY person I call to work on my vehicles. So happy to find this shop, almost feels like home.
A MILLION thanks!   5 of 5 stars
I just wanted to say THANK YOU, again! The guys at this shop really saved my day. I was to return to Florida that night to make it home for a friend's funeral and my car overheated,and would not hold water. It was already late in the afternoon and they were down one guy. People were lined up for service and they took me in anyway, and diagnosed and fixed my car in a very short time. The customer service is wonderful. My car ran perfect on my straight through drive home. Thanksagain!
Amazing   5 of 5 stars
The service and pricing were much better than any other place here in Watertown. I recommend this shop to everyone.
Superb Honest Service   5 of 5 stars
The very best experience. Truly the most honest regarding need for repairs. My Hyundai Santa Fe dealership told me over a year ago that I needed new brakes to the tune of $900.00. I did not think there was anything wrong with them at that time. Decided to check out Midas in Watertown, NY because of great service I had received at another Midas dealer. Rockie did a complete brake check and advised me that there was still half life left on the pads. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LOCATION!
almost jipped!!!   5 of 5 stars
I came to this store for a second opinion bc i was told things about my car that id never heard mainly bc im very good on scheduled oil changes and basic maintenance. Long story short company Z said my car was severely damaged and would cost hundreds of dollars and hours of labor. I went to Midas Watertown and they assured me my car was was fine and the minor repair my car did need was very reasonable and was done including an oil change and 3rd NY state inspection(as company Z had already done 2 and failed my car each time) in ONE HR! I was almost jipped! The staff were honest and very helpful and i am beyond satisfied with their work and company integrity!
Excellent service   4 of 5 stars
I was having issues with a misfire in my ram 1500 after receiving a mileage service from another shop. I explained my issues and concerns to the service manager and mechanics, and told them the trouble codes I was receiving from my computer. This establishment was very knowledgeable in diagnosing a vehicle and providing the proper care to the vehicle. This is not a trial and error place. They took the time to brief me every step of the way while determining the root issue. Truck runs great, recommend this place to anyone around the ft drum
Stayed open late to help   5 of 5 stars
These guys are stand up kinda guys. Had the best experience here with both visits. They stand behind their work and they work to bring you the most value for your buck. I would have my wife or teenaged driver go to them if I was not in town. Pretty refreshing to have honest guys working on my cars.
Excellent Service* Military Friendly*   5 of 5 stars
I went to a local dealership for state inspection on my vehicle and was told that they could only pass it after we would need to spend 1400 dollars on tires and brakes* Called this location and spoke with Rocky and he told me it to bring it in and they would take a look at it* My vehicle passed the state inspection with no needed repairs* I am so glad to see that these guys were so professional*honest and not trying to gouge military families* I will send every one we know to this location*
Great Customer Service   5 of 5 stars
The customer service at this Midas store is the best I've ever experienced with any auto facility. They have never tried to up-sell me on products or services that I don't need, and have always been very straightforward on what *actually* needs to be done. As someone who admittedly knows little about cars, it's nice not to have that fact taken advantage of. Any issues I have had with the repairs done to my vehicle were not the fault of the store or the staff, and were resolved in a timely manner.
