Initial Business Response / [redacted] (1000, 8, 2014/03/03) */ Contact Name and Title: [redacted] Contact Phone: XXXXXXXXXX Contact Email: [redacted] On JanXX XXXX Midas on Western performed an oil change on Mr ***'s Saturn IonHe requested a tire rotation on the left side onlyUpon inspection of the vehicle we found that the wheel lock key was damaged and welded back togetherWe informed Mr [redacted] of our findings and that it would be impossible to rotate the wheels without the wheel lock keyHe understood and we did not do the tire rotationWe informed him that he could possibly purchase a new key at discount tireHe nodded and said thanksWe completed the oil change and said if he finds a new wheel lock key that we would rotate the tires for free on his next visitWe sympathize with Mr ***, however when he left our shop the wheels were in the same condition as he came inWe did not remove any lugnutsHe claims we left the wheel lose and yet he drove highway miles, which in my professional opinion would be impossibleWe will not take any responsibility for Mr ***'s accident as we were not the causeA Initial Consumer Rebuttal / [redacted] (3000, 10, 2014/03/10) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) While it is accurate that the wheel lock key was previously broken, it was in fact welded back together and was in perfect working condition when I arrived at MidasThe mechanic very clearly stated to myself and the gentlemen working the front desk (not ***) that the key broke while attempting to remove the lug nuts Additionally, I am unsure where or how it has been determined that I drove any amount of miles between the time that they loosened my lug nuts and the time the wheel came offNo one ever asked me how far I had driven, nor did I ever inform anyone of how far I drove between these two occurrencesThis is just the latest lie amongst several that include the claim of video surveillance (which Midas cannot produce) and the basis of this situation that they did not loosen the lug nuts which the mechanic stated he had been doing when the key brokeIt should also be noted that I was never made aware that I could have a free tire rotation once I got a new wheel lock keyThis appears to be a feeble attempt to salvage any resemblance of customer service on the part of Midas and it's management teamAll of these lies by Midas and their management team point to an obvious cover up for their negligent serviceCouple the lies with the atrocious customer service that my step-father and I have received ( [redacted] hanging up on the customer numerous times) from the management at Midas and it becomes clear that this is how this business is run and operated and it is beyond unsatisfactory I will restate that this issue is not resolved, nor will it be until Midas reimburses me $for the cost of repairs and towing that resulted from their negligent service of my vehicle Final Consumer Response / [redacted] (450, 14, 2014/03/13) */ The consumer indicated ONLINE that the business responded to this complaint to his/her satisfactionHe/she also stated: At this point in time, [redacted] (business owner) has reimbursed me $for expenses incurred after the negligent service received at this Midas locationWhile it did take quite some time to get a resolution, I do appreciate him finally clearing things upWith that said, it should still be noted that the customer service received from [redacted] was unprofessional to an extreme and I sincerely hope that appropriate measures have been taken to prevent a similar incident from happening again with another customer
