Additional Notes

Complaint: In April 2014 I took my van to midas to have new brakes put on. Throughout the day Midas keep telling me that this and that had to be replaced. I agreed the final bill came to 1200.00. In Jan of 2015 while I was driving my brake light came on the all of sudden I had no brakes. Had to have the front brakes replaced. The place I took it to told me that the front brake lines were never replaced. I email Midas Corp. they had someone from the store call me and the gentleman told me that I should have had the van towed to them they might have paid for the tow he could not tell me yes or no just maybe when I asked about the brake lines being replaced he said he could not tell me. On my invoice it shows I was charged labor for brake lines. When my van was there they told me I needed new all new brake lines and I said yes. My bill was 1200.00 I would like Midas to pay for the new brake lines that I had to put on in the front.

Desired Settlement: I would like to have the money that I paid to have new front brake lines put on.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2015/02/26) */ Contact Name and Title: ****** ****** owner Contact Phone: XXXXXXXXXX Contact Email: *********** midas offers a ninety day warranty on all brake lines we did the work on 4/8/14 she is no longer under warranty it is past the ninety days her receipt does state this in black and white. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2015/03/02) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) Because they claimed that they replaced the front brake lines and like I stated they did not replace them. When I took my van to a different mechanic to have the front brake lines done I was informed from the mechanic that the back brake lines were replaced but not the front ones. If the front brake lines were replaced in April of 2014 I would not have to have them repaced in less then one year. Final Business Response /* (4000, 13, 2015/03/04) */ Midas has nothing else to add and we stand by our decision. the customer was never charged for front brake lines Final Consumer Response /* (4200, 15, 2015/03/05) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I still believe I was charged by Midas for front brake lines and I am not going to let this rest until I get a refund of some sort. They gentleman told me he was going to have to replace the front and back brake lines now they are stating they did not charge me I believe they did. And they did not change the front but charged me anyways.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I called for an appointment for service on *** 23rd. The person on the other end asked me if I would be using an ******** card. I said YES. He told me that I could specify the exact set of services I would like when I came, and he set me an appointment date of *** 5 at 11 pm. I came across to the shop through a wintry and ugly day in Chicago, arriving to the shop at ****** I told "****" that I had an appointment and took out the ******** card I was going to use. He refused to honor the appointment and the card, and told me it could be used only on Sunday. There was absolutely no mention of this on the card, nor was anything like this mentioned when I made the appointment. I eventually talked to the shop's owner, who apologized but could not offer a reasonable resolution since it would be very risky, I feel, to leave my car in that same shop for service ever again. After some words, I left the shop and am presently reporting this incident exactly as it happened to BBB.

Desired Settlement: The shop should offer me the exact same ******** program card at one of their other franchise shops in the area. This report should definitely become a part of this shop's BBB record.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 9, 2014/03/03) */ Contact Name and Title: **** ****** owner Contact Phone: XXXXXXXXXX Contact Email: *********** apologized to mr ***** and invited him back in for a complimantary oil change he declined the invatation manager made a honest mistake Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 11, 2014/03/11) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) Why would anyone leave his car to be serviced by a shop whose service manager has just treated him totally without respect and lied to him? This shop took my appointment and then refused to do the service that was requested. There was no "honest mistake" here. It was a blatant attempt to change the rules on an offernot to mention that a 72-year-old gentleman had to ride across town in severe winter weather in order to keep his appointment and then was denied service. Final Business Response /* (4000, 13, 2014/03/12) */ AGAIN I APOLIGIZE FOR THE MISTAKE ON BEHALF OF THE MANAGER AT THIS POINT THERE IS NOTHING MORE I CAN DO BUT LEARN FROM THE MISTAKE AND TRAIN MY EMPLOYESS BETTER THANK YOU
