View Thread: Midas Brakes


Sia Bani
Anyone try midas' brakes? I'm thinking of getting them since I go thru mine fairly quickly. (the hoe is very underpowered when it comes to stopping)

THey have the lifetime warranty, so I'll only have to pay for pads.


what do you guys think?

never had em, they cant be bad though if they have a lifetime guarantee. They replace your rotors when they need to be?

Sounds like a good deal.

I have em. But it's a Tercel, so the brakes are shitty.

I had a rotor and pad replacement.

for free?

911GT2
Well no. They're a "business". They accept money for goods and/or services.

sir :asshole:, I dont' think you read my post above. Supposedly you get everything replaced for free, other than pads, once you go back after having them initially installed.

Ah. Well they kinda fucked up the first time so i took em back and they retuned em for free. Never had to deal with customer service other than that.

So you gettin them or what?

Do you know what you have to do to get "everything for free"? You go in and tell them you want the lifetime pads. They look at your car (through the shop window...) and inform you to warranty them, you will need new calipers, rotors, lines, drums and shoes in the rear, a parking brake cable, master cyliner, and maybe a new rubber pad for your peddle. Then they will go find the hardest pads imaginable and put them on your car. Now these things will skreech and squeek like no other, also your brakes will grip poorly. Go ahead and complain and all they will do is *maybe* replace the super-hard pads with another set of super-hard pads. Trust me, get a decent set of pads, rotors and shoes and do the job yourself or pay a real mechanic to do it.

911GT2
Well they'll only promise that your car will stop surely if they're sure it'll stop. It's simple. The mechanic may do a similar/better job, but you'll never see a warranty.

A-Tech
you may from a private shop.

Not as solid by any means as a nationwide shop.

ya, I agree with 911. I'm going to check them out when its time. I'll tell them that I don't want any squeakage...etc...and we'll see what happens. They're probably tell me, don't worry bud..no squaks. I'll say, you told me no squeaks, I want my money back. they'll say, sorry bud, you signed next to the "x"

Word to the wise: my brakes squeal pretty bad. But mine are all-temp composite pads. In California they'd probably use softer pads.

I brought them in about a week after we got them replaced for squealing and looseness, they fixed both but only temporarily.

If you decide to get them, tell me how they work out for you.

Sia Bani
I will in a couple of weeks, most likely.

Sub Urban
There "should" be a great improvement over the stock system. Any thing can improve over those.

Sia Bani
Ya, I think so. I'm going to go ask about their warranties and such.
