Good price. Just say no to the extras. People always complain, but it's not that hard to say no.

My girlfriend went to Midas for an oil change. Got talked into a brake "service" (this is where they take it apart and clean it up without replacing parts). A week later one of the brakes they rebuilt failed catastrophically. The vehicle had to be put on a flat deck, it couldn't even be towed after because the caliper had completely seized onto the rotor.

Best part? When I went through her service records I found those brakes had been completely replaced 15,000 km earlier and very likely did not need service in the first place.

That is, they sold her on maintenance that wasn't needed, and screwed it up so bad that they did more damage.

Never again.

- $15 full synthetic 5L oil (purple Tech from WM, just as great as all other synthetics - check youtube if skeptic)
- $12 synthethic fram filter (good for 32k kms, I leave it for 2 cycles, as I change my synthethic oil every 12k kms, so 24k kms total)
- $0 labour (No rocket science unscrewing a nut and filter, then screw them back + pouring skills)

Total: $21 per oil change for synthethic.

My next project is to learn to do my own brakes. It's scary, but so was changing my own oil, and now I wonder why I was so scared to do it when it's so simple. So many DYI youtube movies.

THat is really the whole point of these deals, to get people in so they can upsell on service (rightfully or wrongfully)

I remembered on my first vehicle, I had my muffler replaced by them. After that, the muffler needed to be replaced every year. Even the muffler was 'free', I had to pay labor each time they put in a new muffler.

I find learning how to do brakes is the stepping stone in doing all other repairs for a car. I've shown multiple people how to do a brake service and after they're done they realize how much money they've wasted paying someone else to do it. I've had some pretty awesome dinners in the process. The most common mistake I've seen is not knowing how much to tighten a nut or bolt.

If u wanna be screwed and fk up your car the best way to get it \ do it is to visit one of those shitty places like midas, mr lube etc where min wage 70 iq idiots gna upsell u some brake and or PS fluid flush and will never do it, destroy your oil drain hole thread, strip \ stretch hub studs thread, forget to reinstall oil cap and spill oil all around, leave greasy fingerprints all over the car, scratch your door and list goes on and on.

i think people here be might be a bit dramatic. I've been going to the o'connor location for oil changes for years and occasional maintenance, and they've been consistently friendly and professional. never had any issues. Sure they try to sell you things you probably don't neeeeeed, but you can just politely say no. At the same time, they're not always lying. They point out things that could benefit your car, like when it's time to change breakpads, tire treads, flush some fluids. You'd be surprised how under maintained the average car is... Just take things with a grain of salt and get a second opinion if you're skeptical.

In my opinion, may be biased, but midas staff seem to be a bit better trained than the average workshop chain. But again, might be dependent on the location; check reviews.

There's always THIS person who comes to comment on every oil change company thread.

If we all had the knowledge, time, patience then why would any of these places exist?

Instead of typing up this useless post you could have done something productive like watch a youtube video on how to change your oil.

Your post adds as much value to this thread as my post.

If anyone wants to change their oil on their own then why would they even bother to view this thread? I agree that changing your own oil is not rocket science but thats not the demographic who this post is aimed at.

Its the equivalent of a post about cheap apples at freshco and someone comes along to speak about growing apples.
