They always take out the engine air filter to show me bits of debris in an attempt to sell me a new filter. There is risk that some of the bits will end up on the wrong side of the filter when it is replaced. I change the air filter annually. I will have to make a note to myself to specifically ask that they not check the engine air filter.

Friendly, efficient, personable staff. I checked that they "smiled" which, with masks on, I wouldn't necessarily know - but a smile reaches the eyes, and theirs did. :)

I was greeted by manager (?) Twan and he was clear in discussing the needs for service on my car. He understood completely what I wanted, needed, and have already done. I received FIRST CLASS service from this Valvoline, and it confirmed my reason for driving 20+ miles to this facility. Kudos toTwan and his staff!

I love coming to this shop. I have been bringing both of my bosses cars here for over 2 years. Each time I come the manager greets me with a big welcome and takes care of all of my questions and concerns. One time I came in because my personal car battery died (2015 Prius) The manager quickly recognized that with a hybrid car they could not help me and suggested I go to the dealer. If it was not for his honest actions I would have not known that hybrid cars do not use the standard battery. I have recommended this shop to several of my friends because of the high quality of service I have received every time.

FLAVIO and ALEX were a great team. Super friendly, hospitable, and amazing at what they do. In fact, I loved the dynamic of the staff. They were all joking and laughing around and that's how a work environment should be...ENJOYABLE!!! and it showed. They all need a raise/promotion.
