Staff friendly and very knowledgeable. I used a Groupon and was told I could use it also for 25% off other services. I took advantage of that and had radiator and transmission fluid changed.I was also told coolant low, so I had staff add it! I really trust valvoline and will return.

Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable. The line began to build shortly after I arrived and the staff worked quickly to open up another service station and to clearly communicate those plans to customers. There was no pressure to buy more products and everyone remained very friendly!!

Once they got me into the service bay they started working right away on my car. Everyone was working so diligently and although I was coming in for an oil change they went through all the other services they provide and tire rotation was one that reminded me I needed to have done so I opted in for that as well. They are very transparent with everything they do all the way down to checking headlights brakes turn signals and running lights. I appreciate that small detail

They ask me to turn the lights to a different setting. which i thought was odd after driving the car home i turned off the engine and went into my house. I returned later at night to make sure my car was locked. i inserted my key and tried to turn on the car. everything was dead. I called Auto Club the next morning to jump my battery. I realized. that i never turn the light back to auto. It cost me $150 dollars for a new battery. Other then that everything was OK.

The staff was very professional and knowledgeable and friendly. They explained what type of oil my car needed and why and also answered questions I had about my air conditioning even thou they do not specialize in this.
