You have advertisements everywhere stating to sign up on your text system and receive a 10% discount on your visit. I signed up and was told at payment that they don’t accept it on oil changes. I looked on the advertisement and on the coupon downloaded and it does not mention that it doesn’t work in oil changes.

My wife did not understand what the air filter does and whether or not the air filter was dirty enough to warrant making the change. She felt a bit intimidated and felt that if she didn't change the filter and also add engine coolant the vehicle would not run correctly or there would be a bigger problem sooner than later if the added services were not accepted

Pricing is double what I pay at Firestone 0W20 full synthetic high mileage oil change $112 vs $49It’s a time vs value thing. I just didn’t have time for Firestone yesterday.

There’s usually never any hiccups once you’re in the system and documented with your vehicle and choice of oil. Relatively easy in and out process every time.

Staff was clear, concise, and didn’t try to BS me with additional services. Full synthetic was expensive but with the coupon it was better, still overpriced but that’s California for you.

The workers were really nice, friendly, and didn’t ask me to change the cabin air filter 25 times (they did show it to me and recommended replacement, which I declined). It’s nice when the workers listen to you, especially when declining a service/procedure. Please send coupons, I’ll be back

Everyone was very polite, clearly communicated each step, completed the service quickly…just a every easy and pleasant experience (which from someone with anxiety is a bid deal ^.^)

1st Valvoline store didn’t have my oil filter in stock. They called and found the nearest valvoline shop that did.

It was fairly busy when we pulled. Eye contact and a wave was immediate. We were pointed to a line for a bay and told it would be just a few moments. A service tech came and did the preliminary check in, lights, mileage, etc. The truck in the bay had some issue and a service tech came back to apologize for a longer wait. It was only a minute or two at most. Once we were in the bay, it was lickety split quick. Everything was explained and we were on our way. I appreciate the safety precautions for the customers and the service techs. See you in 4,000 miles.
