I took my car to Midas for an alignment at exactly 8a.m. on a Saturday morning. The guy asked if it was alright if I could leave my car there for a few hours and I said yes because I noticed that there were cars that were already in the bay. I assumed they had been left over night & that of course they would be attend to first.
I had my mother pick me up and drop me off home & she called me at 1:41p.m stating how my car was still parked in the same spot that I had left it in and at exactly 2:35p.m. a gentleman called from Midas stating that they can complete the alignment on my car, but FIRST they will have to complete other services such as replace the inner and outter tie rod, a pan that was supposedly seeping, something with the power steering, etc. & all the parts & labor were a little over $1600, not including the alignment! I told him thanks & that I would be there to get my car.
When I got there to pick up my car, it was still lifted in the air. To top it off the guy told me that I needed new tires (of course I need new tires because that is one of their specialties too). I took my car back to Discount tires & low & behold my tires were fine, but I did need a balance & rotation (not even 30minutes). I went to Break Check & they performed a diagnostic, all I needed was an alignment (took 30 minutes). A 6 1/2 hour & $1600+ job turned into not even 1 hour and not even $100 job! I am so thankful to God that I am not dumb enough to let people scam or lie to me & that I have enough sense to get a second & third opinion. I will never go to Midas again...
