Went in to have my A/C looked at and after a A/C flush and recharge and 5 different a/c compressors cause they just kept going out and like 3 other parts and a new A/C filter ... And finally figuring out that it was the evaporator core the whole time but they never thought of checking that till they squeezed all that money for all the little things out of us first and dont forget all that money they make off the labor which is like triple the cost of the parts... I just recommend that you take it to either the dealer or to a good mom and pop shop that stand by good old quality workmanship... Cause these guy are just out for the MONEY... And if you don't believe me just look at all the rest of the reviews. ..Rating (1.)whatever its like that for a reason... Will never go back to Midas ever again...
My phone number is 361-425-5256 if you have questions about my experience and I hope just to help,somebody from making a bad choice for automotive repair. .. THANKS

Unscrupulous business practices!
My daughter took her car in to find out why it was dying when put in park. Midas charged her $275 in diagnostic fees and a list of everything wrong with the vehicle instead of focusing on the problem. Additionally, extra charges were added for shop supplies.
This shop takes advantage of people by over charging for "tests" that have nothing to do with what they were asked to do. And charge for supplies that are identified on the invoice as declined by customer.
I went in for a loud squeaking noise, $365 later, the squeaky noise is still there. I have taken it back twice and they keep telling me that its something else that needs to be replace. Now I have no money to fix the squeaking noise and I have to find someone else to start all over. Midas reputation went down the tubes with me.
WARNING!!! THESE PEOPLE ARE DANGEROUS!!! MY WIFE WENT IN FOR SIMPLE OIL CHANGE, FREE WHEEL ROTATION TURNED INTO WHEEL BALANCING AND AIR FILTER REPLACEMENT AT A COST,OF COURSE. AN EXTRA 15 MINUTES TURNED INTO 1.5 HOURS , WE DROVE OFF ONLY TO EXPERIENCE A NEAR FATAL ACCIDENT, THEY (MIDAS) LEFT ALL THE LUG NUT OFF ONE WHEEL!!!! YES REVIEWS ARE TRUE, IN THE APPROX. 2.5 HOURS THAT WE WERE THERE, WE EXPERIENCED SEVERAL DISSATIFIED CUSTOMERS!!!
What was said would be about 2 hours to complete turned into 5 hours for a simple alignment and oil change. Yes, we were dropped off at the mall but 2 hrs with 2 kids is way to much time to spend shopping. I called repeatedly to be picked up and it didn't happen. 1st it was 30 more minutes then he's on his way and then he's pulling out of the parking lot right now. Poor customer service and they could care less you're mad and been terribly inconvenienced.
I took my vehicle in for a check engine light. They quoted me at 1100 dollars! Well I took it upon myself to look under the hood and realized where the problem was coming from. I took it to my nearest autozone and repaired the issue myself. Which only cost me no more than 15 dollars. That's because my mechanic skills would probably be at a 2 star out of 5. That has to tell you something right there. They are scammers and are looking just to rip you off. I definitely don't recommend this place to anyone. EVER!!! Beware, especially if you are a WOMAN!!
Took vehicle in and asked for oil change and muffler noise check. Left paying a $880.00 bill cause the staff didn't warn us that the repair was a dealer warranty repair. Staff nice but in same day no one who left was happy with bad news about their cars. We all can't have vehicles that jacked up. If all u need id an oil change I would take it to Minit Man.
