Went there for a simple break repair service and was quoted $1,200. The final price was over $2,300. They made up repairs that were found to be 'critical' and 'dangerous if you don't get the repairs done today'. Hopefully you read this before you end up taking your car there, and then writing a report like I did. Tell them you heard they like to rip people off by printing this and bringing it to their office. Rip people off and then lose business -  not a good idea Midas St. Petersburg.

Midas Clearwater/Largo-East Bay

AUTHOR: ClaimAdvocate - (United States of America)

You bet ...they are crooks at this Midas too. I paid $1000 for a set of brakes and calipers on rear only. After I drove to a Goodyear store for tire rotation they also checked the work out and said you need brakes and cleaning. Of course I already got cleaned out , but good. 

I took the car back out of State to Indiana to my favorite Midas garage for decades and he confirmed they did not do the work, in fact they did not even put life time ceramic pads on the brakes or the right parts. He did a complete job overhaul again and made it right at no charge. He claims he submitted it all back thru Midas for him to get paid for what they should have done in Clearwater. 

While I waited in Florida for my car I heard them lie to several other customers about what was needed. I have been around car garages for 60 years, yes I know when I being fleeced. But you cant stop them before the work is done. You have to pay for the work and them have it checked out afterwards ..thats the type of society we now live in.

Stay away from Midas unless you have worked with one for 10-15 years and have a personal trust relation with them built over many years. I trust none of them in Florida. Thats why the State forced over 200 of them out of business years ago in the West Coast Tampa area for FRAUD! IT APPEARS THEY ARE RIGHT BACK AT IT. ...BUT NOT FOR LONG IF THEY GET EXPOSED!

I surely hope you didn't pay these crooks. you could but 4 rotors 4 calipers and 4 sets of pads for about 4-500 bucks. they wanted 900 to fix wifes van, i fixed it for $120. which included a new rotor, new drum new wheel cylinder and all new brake pads. tell them to put it back together and take it to a reputable shop. Here is where they will tell you its too dangerous for you to drive it off the lot so you must have them fix it.
