The staff were polite and pleasant to communicate with despite my low level of English proficiency. The oil and filter changes were quick. The price of the service is quite affordable. I like to change the oil and other supplies here.

Overall, things went well!I asked about adding air to tires since my light came on soon before arriving which they did but they only filled it up to 5psi under what my car recommends so the light stayed on and I had to pass by another gas station to finish putting air in

As usual, a great overall experience. You shouldn't be charging $8 just to fill up the overflow reservoir of the radiator. Seems petty.

This Valvoline is always rather speedy, and they’re incredibly friendly. I never feel pressured to add additional things, and they’re honest with me when I ask if I can go a couple months without getting something done.

This experience was okay but I had initially gone on Mother’s Day at 4pm- they were closed which was not advertised anywhere. Drove to another location, also closed. It was not announced they would close at 2 that day. Went back the next day for an oil change, was first in line behind the bay, left after 45 mins of not getting any closer to being seen. Finally Tuesday went to a brand new location I’ve never been to.

I like how efficient and easy it is come in and wait in the car until the services are done. I appreciate that the staff were not pushy to get extra services done. They agreed and complied with my requests to top off the windshield fluid and set my tire pressure to what i wanted

The team had an issue with the customer ahead of me. It would have been nice to move me to another bay as they resolved the other customer’s problem. Waiting for30 min before being started was a bummer (specially after all customers that got there after me were completed before me).

Staff was polite and I could tell they were working as quickly as possible even though they were busy. Explained available services but were not pushy about having them done. Offered to help reset my maintenance light and made sure I got tire pressure service.

As usual very professional service.Other important issue was no wait time. Pulled in and discussed what I needed to have checked. Think we added one item to the lists but was anticipating this since the last time I was there. Had the time and chose to do it this time.Also had an issue with the check engine light. They provided a suggestion to reset the indicator and someone who could actually tell me what it was indicating. I reset and a day later the light was off.
