Midas Touch™ Maintenance Package

Why choose the Midas Touch Maintenance package? Let’s the count the reasons.

Preventive maintenance can help you avoid roadside breakdowns, reduce costly repairs … and keep your vehicle safe, reliable and in proper operating condition.

Not planning on keeping your vehicle too long? Showing potential buyers a consistent maintenance record can be a key factor in maintaining resale value, clinching the sale and getting the price you want.

Rather pass on routine maintenance and deal with more serious repairs? Consider this: You’ll be faced with more than the high cost of a repair. You’ll also face the inconvenience of being without your car at what could be the worst possible time.

Remember, preventive maintenance can be scheduled at your convenience and at less cost than a major repair.

So why not live simply, reduce risk, reduce your car care expenses and treat your vehicle like the significant investment it is? At Midas, we have access to the exact maintenance schedule recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. And we can turn that knowledge into a specific maintenance plan for your vehicle.

The Midas Touch Maintenance Package is a great way to get your vehicle maintenance program up and running. It consists of an oil and filter change, Midas Touch Courtesy Check and a tire inspection/rotation:

Oil Change and Filter Service

Of all the preventive maintenance measures, changing your oil is probably the best known, least expensive and most neglected service. Clean engine oil serves many important functions, including:

  • Lubricating the moving components within the engine, protecting both moving and static parts and improving operation efficiency
  • Helping lower emissions
  • Absorbing engine heat
  • Improving overall fuel economy

Engine oil is more than just oil. It consists of multiple chemicals added by the oil manufacturers before reaching your vehicle. These chemical additives improve the oil’s ability to clean the engine, lubricate moving parts, prevent corrosion and protect seals and gaskets.

For all these reasons, it’s important to change your oil regularly. Even the simple process itself can help identify potential problems and prevent costly repairs.

There are several grades and types of oils available, including conventional oils such as 5W30 and 10W30, as well as specialty oils such as full synthetics, synthetic blends and oils designed for vehicles with higher mileage (over 75,000–miles/120,000–km).

Here at Midas, our mechanics can help you decide which oil is best for you and they can perform the regular oil changes crucial to the long–term health and performance of your vehicle.

The Midas Touch Courtesy Check

The Midas Touch Courtesy Check is a multi–point visual check that helps identify areas that could need attention and provides you with the comfort that comes with knowing the condition of your vehicle.

For your vehicle, it’s like a routine physical, with our expert technicians conducting a visual check of many of the items that are found on your preventive maintenance plan:

  • Major Systems and Components
    Engine, Transmission, Brakes, Steering, Starting and Charging, Heating and Cooling, Lighting
  • Under–the–Hood Items
    Battery, Radiator, Water Pump, Air Filter, Belts and Hoses
  • Fluids
    Engine Oil, Coolant, Transmission, Power Steering, Brake, Windshield Washer
  • Under–the–Vehicle Items:
    Shocks and Struts, Brake and Fuel Lines, Exhaust System, Driveline
  • Tires:
    Tread Depth, Wear Patterns, Inflation Pressure, Overall Condition

Tire Inspection and Rotation

Everyone knows that tires play an important role in your vehicle’s road–handling performance. But many people forget that proper tire maintenance, along with monitoring tire pressure, tread depth and performing regular tire rotations, are all safety issues.

Consider these Car Care Council statistics:

  • Only 14% of drivers properly check their tire pressure
  • Nearly 70% don’t know how to tell if their tires are bald
  • 45% wrongly believe that if taking a trip with a fully loaded vehicle that they’re better off with tires that are slightly underinflated

To keep you from landing on the wrong side of these statistics, Midas technicians are committed to proper tire maintenance.

Remember, tire pressure should be checked at least once a month. Monitoring tread depth will help ensure you’re receiving the proper level of traction and road–hugging performance as well as the ability to funnel water out from under the tire to reduce hydroplaning.

That’s why the Midas Touch Maintenance Service comes with a tire rotation and inspection, which includes checking the tread depth, wear patterns, inflation, and overall tire condition condition.
