Place I went to for last oil change didn’t tighten everything back up after they were done, so my oil was leaking. Came here and they told me what was wrong and fixed it immediately and have had no issues. They were great!

The staff was very friendly and nice. It’s nice to go someplace where people are happy when they are working. This was the 1st time I’ve been to this location but will be back from now on. Plus they liked my Siberian Husky.

One of the workers showed me how to change my cabin filter. I would still come in but it's really awesome to know that they care enough to show you something they are absolutely not required to.

I had a bigger issue than an oil change- the staff quickly identified the problem and even moved their car so I could safely park because I had to get a tow!

Was greeted with a smile. Staff was interactive with checking of vehicles and took time to ask if there's any questions and being very professional even though all bays was full and few cars was in line waiting . Staff was very calm.

I appreciated the honesty of the service tech and that I didn't feel forced to purchase any add ons, minus the back light which was not working, so I'm glad they noticed.

The wait was a bit longer than expected but once I was in the well, the process was smooth sailing. The workers were very nice, well informed, and even though there were recommendations there was no forceful pressure. In fact one worker walked me through a reset of my system to clear the dash notification. If there was a valvoline where I'm from I would return for services again.
