Thread Details

Found the below link to print a coupon for $19.99 Midas Oil Change and Free Tire Rotation & $20 rebate for Midas Credit card use. Not sure if it is YMMV but I could find the coupon for all stores in Michigan at least. I'll update the title if someone finds it region specific.

Midas is one of the biggest ripoffs in the Auto service industry! The only thing guaranteed at Midas is that they are charging you 3X-5X what other places would!

Be careful as they will lie to you about other needed repairs. They told me I needed new tires but the problem was the tires were a year old and are still on the vehicle.

I can guarantee that paying $19.99 for a proper oil change is NOT 3x-5x what other places would charge. Be a smart shopper.

I have had pretty good luck at Midas. However, research before going, such as Yelp.

The whole idea behind the cheap oil change and tire rotation is to get you in the door, take your car apart and SELL SELL SELL!!!

As a former ASE Certified Master Automobile technician, I would never apply to these chain shops that pay a low wage with a bonus based on sales....everyone in the company works off this bonus which just fuels the unethical practice of selling repairs that may not be necessary at they moment.

the thing is $19.99 worth of oil when purchased by a major company like Midas equates to dirt shit oil. if you prefer the recommended fully synthetic the rate is closer to $60 for only 4 or 5 quarts so yes midas is a scam rip off company targeting females and idiots. for brakes they asked $200 per axle [front and back totalling $400+taxes] I bought brakes for $74 + tax TOTAL with a LIFETIME WARRANTY from oreilly. I can go back and replace the worn out brakes for brand new ones FREE.

Midas is one of the only places that do tire rotations for free. As it should be. Most places charge an extra $20 for tire rotations; which is just ridiculous.

You could avoid this by specifying the oil you want. Now they could still put in whatever they want, but you run that risk regardless of where you go. Talk to the people working there, they often won't stop you when you got out and chat with the mechanics.

Synthetic is an expensive change no matter where you go. $60 out the door is pretty close to the $54.99 other places charge before tax.

I have witnessed this. That last time I was in there, they told me my rear shocks need replaced. No they don't. Just go in for the cheap oil change and know they may say other things.

Not sure why it took you six weeks to challenge my assertion that I COULD indeed get a $19.99 oil change if that is the advertised price. I don't WANT a twenty dollar oil change in my Volvo or FIAT; but I'd happily take my neighbor's beater Civic in !
