This is my first review ever. I recently got my alternator replaced and had an oil change. Yuri was nice, but I'm not sure that they gave me an honest price. It cost $535 for the ...

I was referred to this Midas shop and Yuri about 1 year ago and have had nothing but amazing experiences and honesty every single time I end up there. From basic oil changes which are only 19.99 including a tire rotation which is a great bargain, to a brake change service which only costed me about 350 with rotors plus the life time warranty. Yuri and his team have never attempted to up sell me on any occassion, as other bloggers have mentioned. Maybe if you caved in a little bit and approached him with a nicer attitude or willingness to spend a little money, he would treat you differently. Yes, I spend money there but in return I get honest and trustworth diagnostics of mine and my girlfriends cars. He never sells me things I dont need and when it comes time to get sold something legit, I just pay his price and try to ask for a courtesy discount. It's not always about a cheap bargain which I have learned coming from 4 other mechanic shops.

When you trust someone and they give you good service and are honest and offer warranty on all their services, the final dollar amount don't always count. I always recommend my friends to take their cars in this shop. Thank you midas glendale for always doing a great job!!!! Perhaps the other negative reviewers were just ---holes looking for a cheap pep boys shop. You get what you pay for in everything in life. more

great shop!!! 9/14/2011

this midas shop has never done my family and i wrong or dirty. they are honest people and experienced mechanics. the manager/owner is a great fella who strives for customer service. every time i get in there (hint, get in there in the morning before their afternoon rush) there is always a fresh pot of coffee for me and free wifi so i can work on my laptop for about an hour or so while i get some maintenance done to my 2005 toyota. the prices are average but as other people have agreed on, they are honest at least from all of my experiences. i used to have a mechanic in the burbank area who was selling me stuff and not even doing the work. i know that yuri the manager is very trustworthy but isn't always the cheapest. sometimes i would rather pay a few dolalrs more but know my car is in good hands. 5 stars to this shop. more

Trustworthy Car Repairs 8/9/2011

Yuri and his Midas team have taken care of my car for the past two years now. Every oil change, brake change, and brand new tires have all be done at his shop. He is honest and fair with his prices and very upfront. I highly recommend this Midas for your car repair services. Yuri will take good care of you and thats a guarantee. You'll also get service with a smile! Thank you Yuri! more

Thanks Midas guys!!! You have 7 cars for life lol 10/18/2010

I have been a customer of this Midas shop for about 3 years now. My family and I own 7 vehicles in total. Not once, has the owner/store manager attempted to up sell me on services I never needed. How I know this? I've tested them previously with another vehicle and they are so legit and on top of their knowledge with cars, that I will only trust Yuri to service our vehicle's. My car has been at the dealer on numerous occassions, where of course they give me a wrap sheet of services my vehicle(s) MUST HAVE!!! Well, next pit stop when I take it to Midas, Yuri goes ahead and reviews the list with me and crosses out certain ""recommendations"" which can easily wait another 10-20k miles!! This is amazing for me because I dont have to waste my money on things that dont absolutely have to be done. He only sells me the services which are safety related and a must at that given day. I read certain other reviews and counter all the negative ones! You just had a bad experience or got upset that your car really needed lots of work by lack of service, as Yuri puts it in my head lol :) Long story short, I am very pleased and satisfied with how this shop handles their business. I trust them entirely with ALL OF OUR VEHICLES!! Let alone, I send my boss and co workers to see Yuri. I wouldn't do such a thing if he werent honest. Thanks Midas guys for always taking care of our vehicle's. You all rock. Will only come to Midas. Stay away from the dealerships!!! more

Don't have ANYONE ELSE take care of your vehicle 9/28/2010

When I first arrived in LA I needed an oil change. Everywhere I went their prices for a simple oil change were through the roof! I finally went in search for a car service shop that was highly rated and I saw that this Midas had many reviews of 5 stars. So I went. I didn't need an appointment and my oil change was done in 45 minutes. The BEST part was it was less than $30! Also, I must mention how awesome the owner Yuri is. His work ethic and customer consideration is impeccable. I have referred many friends here and they are all so satisfied. I big THANK YOU to Midas. I would give another star if I could. more

BEST SPOT IN LOS ANGELES FOR YOUR CAR 9/28/2010

i heard of Midas in glendale through Facebook - a few people chatting about how they were happy witht Yuri and the service so I gave them a try. The Midas Team were very efficient and brought to my attention issues with my brakes that my family mechanic never did (because he is lazy). I asked them to change my brakes, oil change and rotate tires ~ all were done in a timely manner and price was the most competitive i have found to date. I will def. recommend them to my sisters and my friends. I will def. go back again for all of my services. ~~~Mel more

Quality, Fast Service at a Reasonable Price 8/19/2010

I was dreading taking my car in for maintenance, as many people do. You expect to be ripped off, plain and simple--boy was I pleasantly surprised by my experience at this place. First of all, the owner--who's name is Yuri--was actually onsite, overseeing the whole operation. I was impressed by the kindness I was shown, and the honesty of the professionals working there (as in, they didn't have to tell me that some of the services in the initial estimate were relatively low-priority and could wait a month or two). I was in and out in an hour, and now have much more piece of mind. Customer for life! more
