I will never go back
WHY?
I brought my Toyota for oil change. Front desk guy gave me appointment after 6 days.( It was 29.99) I said after 6 days when I bring my car will it be same price? He said yes. I brought my car. There was a lady at the front desk. (she is manager) She said promotion is over. Price is 39.99 plus tax she said. Despite their dishonest I said ok. I paid and I left my car with the key there. I came back after one hour to get my car. I saw my car still was in garage. I asked lady is it not done yet? she said it is done. She went in garage and get my car outside of the door. My driver side window was open. She got out of the car and left the door open. I got in my car and closed door and I went home. My home is only 2 minutes away from the garage. I closed the door without touching door handle. I forgot to take something in my car and while I was opening my door I saw my door handle was broken.
In ten minutes I went back to garage, I said my door handle is broken. She said we did not brake your door handle. I said when I left my car your property was the door handle broken? she said no. I said, the oil changer guy may brake by accidentally can I see him. He came in and without listening to me I did not brake your door handle. He did not even interested to see broken door handle. I said you may broke by accident but you should tell me that it has happened. He right away tried to defend him self. I was a bit angry another man (Chinese man) came in. He treat me to leave his garage. He became very aggressive to me. He was not nice at all. Three people in garage blamed me despite I am right. After a few minutes they are yelling at me The front desk lady said to me that they will fixed no charge but I have to pay the part. I said ok. (She added that it was one and half hour job)I left there and next day she called me for an appointment. The part is $55,95 plus tax.
I was afraid to bring my car back to them. (because, they may fix for free the door handle but they may damage my car in manically, this is what I felt) so I found a small garage and they fixed my door handle in 10 minutes and I paid $80.
This is what happened. How can I trust this people?

Fraudulent
They charged me about 5 times the price for a part that cost about 200 dollars. People should be aware of this place and avoid it completely. When I called the mechanic, he said its practice encouraged by his manager. With this kinda practice I don't think this place should be operating at all.

Need brakes done?.....Run from these guys!
Took our vehicle in last year to have brakes done. (2014) A whopping 1800 dollars later, we were finished. Found out later on, we were WAY overcharged. One year later, brakes seem to have a problem.( 22,000 kms since brake job.) Back to Midas for a look. Guess What? ......New brake job needed. Estimate? near 1800 dollars again. When questioned, we were told it was because of the type of vehicle that we owned and that this vehicle was hard on brakes. Funny, because the original brakes took us 78,000 kms. The brakes they installed....22,000 kms. I did not have a good feeling after reading some reviews of this place....as one woman had a situation almost identical to ours. She had a total brake job, to only go one year to find out she needed another. In the end, we took our vehicle to another place and saved HUNDREDS of dollars. So in the end, if you don't mind giving your money away, these are the people to see. If you care about your vehicle and your pocket book.....run, run, in the opposite direction.

Ripped off
Mike Kang charged me full prize for 4 X Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 tires in March 2015. I took a closer look at the tires today and found out that they are actually WS60 with a manufacturer date of Week 31 2011 !!!
I am looking into suing the location, not sure if he is still working there, seems that he is moving from branch to branch.

chinese owners are scammers
The owner Mike Kang overcharges for everything and doesn't care about his customers/and treats his employees like dirt/they take
advantage of their employees/ They verbally abuse their employees and pay them slave labour....his personal Motto is....(I CAN FIND CHEAPER SLAVES)

midas 1380 baseline
AVOID FRAUDULENT MANAGER!
i took my car in to get gasket changed at the manifold. manager quoted 2 hours. i called toyota and they told me they charge 1.5. went to another midas after work was done and they quoted .8 of an hour. i was finaly charged 1.5hrs. i had an appointment at 9am and the manager stated the gasket would be there ready to start at 9am. when i arrived the gasket wasn't ordered by the manager yet. so they went ahead and ordered it . it then arrived at 955am. the technician started to take the old one off at 9am and by 915am he was all ready to put new one on. my car sat waiting in the bay for 40min, and i was charged for this time that the manager forgot to order parts the day before. this is fraud. the car ended up being ready by 1035am. i mentioned all this to the manager and all he had to say was im not taking .5hr off. I did reseach on this manager and im not the first to be frauded by him.

GOOD SERVICE AND GREAT PRICE!!
I just wanted to say i went to midas bells corners
at 60 roberston rd 613-829-7980.
And i was very pleased with the service and price and quality
of work i got my exhaust and front suspension checked they found a loose tie rod end and noisy bearing.
I was shown all the neccessary repairs and was given
an estimate up front backed by a 1 year warranty.
The price was reasonable and repairs were on time and i was
picked at home "Great Service Guys " Thanks

just... sad really
booked an appt. to get an oil change and talk about an exhaust leek (repair or replacement) on a rusted flex pipe. After telling them the problem they, ignoring what i told them and diagnosed the problem as the lower rusted attachment bolts for that frontpipe (bolts were rusted but gasket and attachment 100%) and that to grind the existing bolts out & install a new gasket and bolts would cost me $180. then after i told them again that the problem was the flex pipe they priced a replacement of the frontpipe at $620!! considering this involved grinding out 3 easy to access bolts, unbolt the mount in the engine and pop in the $180 replacement frontpipe and gaskets i wouldn't expect to pay more than $260 for that and the shop down the street did just that for $230 in a half hour. Don't waste your time or your money.
