We had been going to Midas Greensborough for years. But on our last service we noticed a whole new crew (owners perhaps) which was the beginning of so many problems.
(Do yourself a favour and avoid going to these guys, there are a lot more trustworthy and better auto shops around the Greensborough/Eltham area.)
$1200 for a yearly service and brake check (new brake pads).
For a 6 year old Japanese family SUV!!!!
After picking up the car, I noticed that the whole interior, steering wheel, infotainment screen and buttons, handbrake and the gear knob were covered in grease. My hands were all greasy (black) after a 10 minute drive back home. I didn't make a big deal out of it and cleaned the interior thoroughly.
Since the service (a couple of months ago) the brakes squeal, quite loudly and we've had multiple noise issues coming from the engine compartment, took it back to the shop a couple of times, even took the "mechanics" for a test drive, as they repeatedly said they couldn't find anything wrong! And they said that the multiple noises I was referring to were 'just normal' and 'should go away on their own'.
Then again, a couple of months later, after a few back and forths with the shop to no avail, I'm taking the car to another auto-shop (referred by a friend) to see if they could discover what's been done by Midas Greensborough!
