The assistant manager ( Courtney , I think) is great. Friendly, professional and able to focus on multiple tasks. My oil light flickered, so I pulled in to get an oil change. I was very low on oil and the crew spotted signs of a long existing leak. Instead of a full oil change , they advised that I top off the oil and then take my car directly to a repair shop for evaluation. How can you top that ?

Osie from Valvoline on Massachusetts Ave was great! He went out of his way to help me and give me information. It was my first time using drive thru oil change and I will be back. Thanks Osie

Service was fast and professional but the price is very high. Pricing could use a review. In the future I will consider changing oil myself. Aside from the price it was exceptionally high quality service.

The girl helping out was highly professional,courteous and helpful. She recommended the right solutions for oil, checked on my tire and found a nail and suggested a solution, asked about the filter and told me it looks good...all in all it was really good visit.

Staff was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. We felt comfortable asking questions about the services being recommended and how we should go about deciding which oil would be best for us.

Satisfied with service but your prices are excessive. $100 for a synthetic oil change? My regular mechanic does it for $60. Fortunately I had a coupon for 25% off but it was still steep. Valvoline probably inflates its price and then uses "generous coupons" to make customers think that they are getting a deal. Try fair pricing and drop the coupon charade.

Staff told me I was out of radiator coolant fluid and that it was very dangerous to drive with it. They tried to convince me to get a flush for 150 dollars. I refused and looked at it myself when I got home and there was plenty of coolant. They lied to try to convince me to buy a service I didn’t need.

Everything went great, and I already have an extremely high level of trust in them. My only concern was their lack of adherence to social distancing guidelines, particularly with customers. When showing me an issue under the hood, all of the staff stood right next to me and made no effort to maintain appropriate distance. Not a big problem, and it would not preclude me from going back in the future (assuming covid settles down by the time I return), but still concerning.

The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. They let me know what was going on with my vehicle and went into great detail to ensure that I knew exactly what was going on and why it needed to be fixed. The price was an issue and they went above and beyond to work with me and at the end I was able to get exactly what I needed. They were excellent and I will definitely be going back.
