The staff was incredibly welcoming and explained everything to me and even offered to show me what was going on. As well as made conversation with me while we waited for my engine to be flushed.

It was so slowwww. There was one car in garage when I arrived. Took them 30 min on it before getting to me and then another 30 to just do my oil! Shouldn’t take an hour to get an oil change here

The staff here is overall awesome ! I could go on and on about generous and kind they were, also informing me in information about my car that i didnt even know ! They engaged in senseless conversation about my job and family and really seemed interesting in conversing with their customers ! Sir. 'Divine D' especially made me feel welcomed and appreciated and was very informative on certain issues pertaining to my car! As friendly as the whole valvoline staff was, Divine made the atmosphere very positive and welcoming. I work in security and seeing and meeting hundreds of people daily, Divine was a very positive encounter and interaction. That man should be shown appreciation in his career, as he made something dreadful as getting car maintenance, actually fun, AND informative at the same time!

The staff are very kind at the Central Ave, Albany NY location and I never feel pressured during the service. They explain things I may not understand and are a pleasure! They all deserve a raise!

I was satisfied.. there were three men working very hard to handle three bays with a midday saturday high load of customers lined up, working as efficiently as possible. Yes it took time but I was relaxed.. not in a hurry and watched their systematic fair treatment to everyone. Thank You... will return to this service location.

There were 3 gentlemen that helped me today; two of which were named Javel and Tommy. I believe the third may have been a supervisor. Not only were they kind and courteous, they went above and beyond to answer my questions in layman's terms so I could understand. They also advised me of what they were doing as they were doing it. Overall awesome work and customer service.

For some reason the technician told me that the manager said they had to charge me an extra $10 bucks due to requesting to add 1 quart of my own Lucas High Mile Treatment Fluid (Autozone purchase) to the new 4 1/2 quarts of Valvolene oil poured into the engine ... not sure why that was necessary? They said it was company "policy". Not sure why i would be charged extra considering that my car's oil change service required using less of the Valvolene oil. But other than that the service was good..

They were very friendly and didn’t pressure to me to buy products but did kindly recommend them to me. Very soft with my car and made sure my lights were working and put air in my tires.
