*Author of original report: THE WHOLE UPDATED STORY
*Consumer Comment: alignment? they probably didn't even bleed the brakes!!!
midas in new port richey florida. my 1999 ford E-150 van pulled left applying the brakes so i took it to midas and they said to replace the calipers and hoses. i paid the $443.22 and when i left it was not different. so the next morning i was there and bob the manager just said to leave it.
i got the van at closing time and they had taken all day to rough up the rotors and pads and was told to drive it 500 miles.
it was still not any better. upon the 3rd visit, they decided to replace the calipers and hoses again and it was still not fixed.
i was then told the abs system was faulty and they needed $800.00 more to do the job right. i decided to take it to the ford dealer and they charged me only $100.00 to bleed the systen including the abs and aligned the van.
it is now perfect as new. midas and the corprate have yet to help the matter or offer a refund. midas shop wont call back nor answer the calls from corprate customer service. i am now out $443.22 and got new parts it didnt need.
i will never go to midas nor tell anyone to go there but run the other way as it can happen anytime.
as this web sight and others i found and with all the people at corprate taking the calls of complaints, its no small job to hear them all so there are many people employed to do just that, HEAR MIDAS COMPLAINTS !!
