‘Lifetime’ Is Pretty|Short for Midas

SEATTLE (CN) - Midas International canceled its "Lifetime Oil Change" promise after customers paid $130 for it, a class action claims in King County Court. Midas and its J&A Automotive outlet charged $129.99 for up to four oil changes a year for "lifetime," then sent letters in October 2009 canceling the deal as of Dec. 31, 2010, the class says.

The letter referred questions to Midas's 1-800 number, according to the complaint.

The class seeks injunctive relief and damages for breach of contract and violation of the Washington Consumer Protection Act.

It is represented by Matthew Metz with the Metz Law Group and Adam Berger with Schroeter, Goldmark and Bender.
