I recently had to purchase oil for my car and it was $30 for the same thing that they put in my car, but you guys charge me $90 for that oil. There is no reason in the world and oil change should be over $100 just for the oil change. I got no extra services. They told me they only had one oil type for my car and of course it was the one that cost the most. I will never return to this place. I may as well just have given them the oil that I already had it in the back of my car to put in. This is an absolute rip off

Service is always friendly, clearly explained of what's needed or required. I have always been given the choice to what's recommended and offered what is affordable. The customer service is exceptional and my vehicle runs like a charm!

The staff was fast, efficient, and very cool. They worked together well and I felt they were all very competent at getting the job done as quickly as possible. This was one of my best valvoline experiences yet. The whole crew was great. The manager also went above and beyond and helped put my license plates on that I had gotten in the mail but hadn’t gotten around to doing it myself. I will be back and I will be telling everyone how great this experience was.

From the moment I pulled up, had very friendly introduction and pre-inspection to help keep things moving along. Clear and helpful explanation of service as well as courteous response to my input of recent work done. Didn’t wait too long but had thorough service completed and a friendly send off. Will easily come back for next time.
