Midas Offers an Oil Change and More
The time had come for an oil change and tire rotation. I also thought I may need new tires because that is what I was told at my last service.
After calling for an appointment at my car dealership, I decided I didn't want to drive the 26 miles which I usually drive, just for an oil change and possible tire rotation.
I saw an ad for a special at Midas for an oil change and tire rotation for less than I would have paid for an oil change. And the Midas shop was only 12 miles away.
I do not remember ever having gone to Midas for anything, ever, but I thought I would try. After calling to schedule an appointment for the following day, I began to have some doubts. The security I feel when going to my usual dealership, where I know everyone, means a great deal to me. I still decided to try Midas.
When I arrived at Midas the next day, I was greeted and taken care of right away. There were many cars already there, and people kept coming in. I felt it was a good sign.
I asked them to check my tire tread and they told me it was good - no tires needed - so I could have my tires rotated. What a relief - they even showed me how they checked it.
I went for lunch across the street and the car was just about ready when I returned.
Everything was painless, my car feels great and I saved money.
