The friendly technicians at Midas run a fine-tooth comb through every vehicle that comes their way, providing thorough checkups of auto innards to ensure each motorized mover is safely up to snuff. The roughly 40-minute Midas oil change swaps out up to 5 quarts of oil matched to the correct viscosity grade for each vehicle; customers can choose to imbue their engines with synthetic oil for increased mileage and better engine health. The technicians also check oil filters, replacing them as needed, before rotating tires to help reduce uneven wear and improve traction, while playing down obvious indicators that the pumpkin-sticker-covered Back-Lefty is your favorite. Rounding out the vehicular makeover, a multipoint courtesy inspection examines all major systems and components of the horseless carriage to ensure safety and optimal operation from transmission to tail light. Appointments are not required, and customers should allow 1–3 hours service time during peak hours.
With the Secure Stop brake service, which takes about 90 minutes, the Midas brake buffs perform a 45-point inspection of the entire brake system, from the fluid lines to the drums and disks. Then, they install a new set of lifetime-guaranteed semi-metallic brake pads to provide tip-top stopping power, leaving drivers with an estimate for any additional components that need to be replaced, retuned, or sternly lectured for underperformance.
Though Midas sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
What began more than 50 years ago as a single auto-repair outlet in Macon, Georgia, is known across America today as Midas. The trusted chain of car-repair shops spans 17 countries worldwide, and each location employs a skilled, reliable staff that strives to keep drivers and their families safe. This goal is perhaps best embodied by the Midas Touch Courtesy Check, a service during which technicians check fluid levels and tires for safety and check the area under the vehicle to make sure Robert De Niro isn’t trying to hitch a free ride. Once they've given vehicles the once-over, mechanics can then prescribe any necessary services to keep cars running smoothly, such as brake repair, filter changes, alignments, and engine tune-ups.
