I went here just to get a simple so called oil change and i got my fluids and tires rotated. The usual, then the guy comes out and said that one lug and the bolt on the hub was stripped and they didnt have the tools to rethread it at the shop. My truck has 5 lugs and so i could ride home on 4. I left and went on my way. A little while later i saw that i had a flat on the tire where i had 4 lugs. It was so hard to get them off. I figured hey maybe its a lil rusty it happens then i find out that i was stripping my lugs taking them off. now i am without a truck and it is the only vehicle i have. THANKA MIDAS

I had my car towed into this Midas a couple weeks ago because my car would not start. I thought it might have something to do with that fact that, about a week before, I got a new cadalytic converter and oxygen sensors on my car at a different Midas. When my car was diagnosed, they told me the problem was my fuel pump. I was shocked by this for a couple of reasons. First, when my car was being checked out a week before, there was nothing wrong with the fuel pump and second, because I had gotten a new fuel pump about a year ago and found it hard to believe I needed a new one already. Unfortunately, though, I was unable to take it to another shop for a second opinion because it was unable to start and I didn't have the money to tow it somewhere else. So, about $800 later, the car was "fixed" so I drove it home.

A mere nine days after having the fuel pump replaced, I stopped to get gas for the first time since I got my fuel pump changed. When I went to start my car after filling up my tank, it died exactly like right before I got my pump changed. So, I called the Midas near me (in Corona, since I was up there completing training for work) and had the car towed in. They told me there was nothing wrong with the fuel pump and that my car's internal computer's security system had a glitch and I would have to take it to a dealer to get it reprogrammed. When I called my dealer, they said this would cost me about $800. I haven't been able to take my car to a dealer yet and won't be able to for a while because I first will need to pay back the $1,800 I had spent at Midas in under a three week time period. The dealer at the Midas in Corona did get my car started, but then after I got gas for a second time, my check engine light came on.

This experience led me to believe one of two things happened: First, that Midas screwed up my fuel pump and can't fix it. Or, that my car never needed a fuel pump in the first place - the security system was the problem all along and Midas just changed my fuel pump to make money. I have contacted their corporate office in this matter and can tell you Midas offers the WORST customer service I have ever experienced. And another warning to anyone who may still want to go to this Midas despite my bad experience: Whatever you do, do NOT leave anything valuable in your car. After I paid for the fuel pump and went out to my car, the door had not been closed all the way and anyone could have come up to it and swiped my GPS and other belongings. I also want to mention that my car is a 2003 and has been taken care of, so it's not like I've been pouring money into a clunker.

Midas Auto Service Experts got the best that I ever been to. I drop by Midas Auto Service for a break pad. They got their famous lifetime warranty. So the next time i need a new break pad, just drop by Midas Auto Service and they will replace it for free; only paying for the larbor. Great deal since most other place charge both.

The Midas Auto in Oceanside is clean, staffed by knowledgeable and kind sales staff, and can take care of just about anything. The location is only a short drive off of the 76 freeway, and is easily accessible from Mission Ave. The staff was very courteous and listened to everything I had to say before making a diagnosis. They did a general check to see what was needed and then gave a very reasonable price.
