It costed more than I was hoping and I didn’t have enough knowledge to say no to the products offered to me so I felt like I had to get them.

The wait to get into the service bay was very long, and it didn't seem very busy. My service lights are still on even after the services, but that could be because of Covid restrictions, service techs did not access my interior controls to reset

The manager and each employee I spoke to was genuinely kind, ready and willing to help, courteous, went above and beyond to make sure I was happy, and gave me a feeling of confidence in the service they provided. Even though there was an issue with my oil pan, the manager himself worked to make sure that I could drive away with an oil change and without the pan leaking (with instructions to go get a long term fix, of course). Before I met this manager, I didn't think very highly of Valvoline but now I am a lifetime customer. His care and expertise were clear - honestly I believe he deserves a promotion and bonus for all his hard work! In addition, I LOVED that I didn't have to get out of my car during the service.

Both the service person and manager went out of their way to help. They vaccumed out tbe oil due to an oversized drain plug. Great job!

Oil change costing over $100 seems excessive, especially when my last visit with the same vehicle cost about $75. The tech explained I had a 20% coupon when the oil change cost $75, but this time I had a $12 coupon so the difference should not have been $25
