UPDATE- Was contacted by the owner, Naman who offered a $150 refund to remove the review as it was affecting business. Advised that it was an insult, and he would speak to the business manager and contact with a better resolution. Then never reached out again, nor answered any forms of attempted contact.
Need a mechanic? MIDAS well do your research.
Businesses like these are reason mechanics have a bad reputation. Take it up the road to Automotive Technix instead.
Car was taken in to resolve a noise when the vehicle turned, demonstrated the noise to the mechanics on site. Mechanics quoted $920+ to fix the issue and service the vehicle. gave the go ahead. When the vehicle was returned, the issue was the same, if not worse. If the vehicle was “Road tested up to 60km/hr” as displayed in the service invoice, they would have identified this. When contacting the mechanic, every immoral, sleazy sales tactic was used to try and up sell more, even considering the transmission to be replaced.
Called a local mechanic Automotive Tenchix up the road, they understood and even knew the issue over the phone, took it in and had it quoted, the moment the vehicle was jacked up, it was plain as day that it was the wheel - Not even something that MIDAS considered. They replaced the wheel bearing for the part cost and one hour of labour.
All parts replaced by MIDAS were never the cause of the issue - They were also replaced on the opposite side to where the issue was to add insult to injury.
Midas returned the vehicle to me “Fixed”, even put their sticker on the back window when it was completely unsafe to drive, quoted and replaced things incorrectly three times, previously gave the same vehicle a Wheel Alignment, with no noticeable change; Acted like the good guys throughout the process, while essentially committing daylight robbery.
I will never be returning and urge you all to do the same.
