Everyone in Hawaii knows that Midas Hawaii is a household name. For more than 50 years, Midas Hawaii has continued to proudly service the vehicles of Hawaii’s families, and “is committed to earning your trust by providing you with the expertise, value and responsiveness you expect … every time you visit us,” says Bob Pereira, president/owner of Midas Hawaii.

With the kids back in school, and the holidays rearing right around the corner, who has the time or money to maintain their vehicle(s)? Well, if you make a smart move by getting the new Midas Credit Card this fall, you can save a bunch while taking care of your car. From Sept. 29 through Oct. 19, you’ll be able to save
$25 on the spot by earning a rebate after oil change services. During that limited time, the company will be offering a Midas Credit Card offer you can’t pass up.
When paid for with a Midas Credit Card (instant with credit approval), Midas Hawaii’s $39.99 oil change and tire rotation offer will earn customers a $25 rebate. That brings the entire offer down to
$14.99 (plus shop fees, disposal and taxes). Not only do customers get an oil change and tire rotation at time of service, but Midas will also check tire pressure, complete a visual brake check, top-off windshield wiper fluid, test your battery free of charge, and perform a multi-point courtesy check. Customers truly cannot go wrong with that offer this fall! In addition to mufflers
(what most people in Hawaii know Midas Hawaii for) and brakes, Midas also offers “preventive automobile maintenance services (including new car service intervals), suspension, fast and convenient oil changes, alignments, climate control, tune-ups, fluid flushes and tires,” says Bob.
When looking for convenience and quality service, customers can enjoy quick and high-quality oil changes, with Midas Corporation’s
“SpeeDee Oil Change” shops, which Pereira and his wife, Dianne, added to the Midas Hawaii name in 2010, to make your automobile care needs a lot quicker and more convenient. SpeeDee Oil Change shops in both Waipahu and Wahiawa
“employ the latest technology and processes to create the quickest oil change with the best customer experience possible,” says Dianne, who serves as owner alongside Bob.
SpeeDee Oil Change & Auto Service Shops provide a full range of preventive and even corrective maintenance services to keep your vehicle running smoothly on Hawaii’s roads for an extended period of time. They will perform a multi-point courtesy check and a service presentation every time you bring your vehicle in for a 17 Point Oil Change, and review manufacturer specifications as well as their own findings on your vehicle, so you are able to make the most informed decisions about your car. Another benefit of SpeeDee shops is that they offer a free top-off service for three months or 3,000 miles following a SpeeDee oil change or tune-up. During this time, they will check and top-off your engine oil and other essential fluids (up to 1/2 pint), including transmission and differential fluids, plus check tire air pressure and clean the front and rear windows. And while customers can now get a variety of services done at Midas Hawaii as well as at SpeeDee Oil Change locations, Midas does more brake work than any other auto repair facility in Hawaii. “Our brake pads and shoes come with a lifetime guarantee, which means that once you’ve purchased them, you will never need to pay for replacements again, as long as you own your car,” says Bob.
As part of the company’s motivation to place the “customer
first,” Midas caters to the modern consumer by allowing patrons to not only search for information on its website, but also to go as far as to book appointments as well as view videos and other materials to educate them on car care and maintenance. One of the benefits of going online to research services or look for prices for your Midas Hawaii services, is that you are able to educate yourself and control costs — no surprise services that you may not know about when showing up for your appointment. Another perk is that all online “products and services” prices include standard shop fees; there are no hidden fees, and no unknown costs.
Convenience is made a priority, as PayPal™ is the preferred method of payment for services purchased online with Midas Hawaii. This ensures an easier and safer way to pay for your services. Discounts that are offered online even include gift certificates (also offered at an online only discount), and multiple-oil-change packages.
The company not only caters to, but also rewards online shoppers with exclusive deals. “We created this website to let everyone know who we are and what we do,” explains Dianne. She also adds that many “online only” offers are posted on Midas Hawaii’s website as well as events going on that customers can find only online. Dianne adds, “We make it easy not only to purchase services, but also to make appointments at your convenience.
“Our team is dedicated to giving our customers excellent service with the best quality parts that stand the test of a lifetime warranty. We offer Total Car Care under one roof, follow the vehicle manufacturers and MAP standards and provide great value in all of our services. Our service comes with a free visual courtesy check of major systems and components so that customers have a heads up on what they need to pay attention to. Our managers and employees from Hawaii continue to solidify our reputation as the best. You can trust the Midas touch.”
