About two months ago, my car?s breaks were squeaking loudly which is a sign to have it checked. I have an honest mechanic that I?ve been going to for years but unfortunately he is not open on weekends and my work schedule during the week is unforgiving. So I decided to give the Midas branch on Alafaya and Colonial Drive a try. One thing to note, always ask for a quote before allowing them to work on your car. In their quote, they indicated that not only were my break pads bad but my rotors were also damaged beyond repair and need to be replaced, about a $500 job. They were adamant that driving this car any further is VERY dangerous and guaranteed that I was going to get into an accident if I ignored their service. Sensing something amiss, I declined and they continued to voice out scare comments as I walked towards and out the door. Very upset, I decided to leave my car with my usual mechanic the following Monday and called in a pick-up/drop-off favor from a friend. My mechanic called me that same morning and said that all you need are break pads, the rotors are just fine and undamaged and my cost is only $75. I?m not the type of person who writes reviews but I just felt obligated to warn potential customers about this Midas branch?s dirty scamming tricks! I am convinced that if my knowledge about cars and parts were not sufficient, I would have been scared right out off $500. As of today, my breaks are still quiet and perfect! It's hard to find honest mechanics these days.
Pros: Absolutely Nothing
Cons: Exactly that, they are CONS!!!
