I have been to Midas before, and had no previous issues. But a more dramatic drama arose just recently. I was looking for a motor mechanic to repair my Toyota Hiace van. Sometimes the vans engine would just suddenly conk out when I stop at traffic lights. I live in West Hoxton and Midas recommended a mechanic in Edmondson Park called Elias Chami. This guy was a liar and a thief. He quoted me $1000 to replace the fuel injectors. I was going to say yes, and go ahead, but a 6th sense told me this fee seems a bit high. So I decided instead to shop around.
I ended up at another mechanics workshop on Canterbury Road in Campsie.
The guy at that workshop said to me, wait a minute. He put his head under the bonnet, fiddled around for a few minutes, then said - Done. All fixed up. I said, what !! Have you fixed it ? He said, yes. The air hose had come loose, so the engine was stalling because it was sucking in too much air. I was stunned. The van was fixed in less than 10 minutes. The mechanic didn't even charge me for a service call. He just said, give me 20 bucks in cash, which I happily did. Had I dealt with Elias Chami, I would have been charged $1000. I am giving this negative review to Midas because someone in the store, working behind the counter gave a verbal recommendation to use Elias Chamis service. NOT HAPPY.
