South Riding Reviews

"I was very pleased with my visit to Virginia Tire and Auto today. I was there for a vehicle inspection. Each and every worker I interacted with was extremely pleasant and considerate of my time. I will certainly return and will highly recommend them to my friends."

Shane Shamblin, January 2016

"Excellent job from the time I entered the door until I drove away with my vehicle."

Eric E Smith, January 2016

“Very happy experience. Went in for an oil change and was not pressurized into anything else.”

Peter Tregear

“Got my tire plugged in an hour without making an appointment. That's pretty good in Northern Virginia. I can't remember the young man's name that assisted me but was very helpful and engaging. He delivered what he promised."

Steve Vaugh

It was must first visit to this location but sure glad I did. I was there for less than one hour for someone to test drive my automobile to determine I needed new brakes and oil change. At 11:00 I was told that the work could be done by 1 pm. Of course, the price was fair and how could I not take advantage of such great fast service, Also, Thanks to Michael who was kind enough to drive me to my home and back to pick up my automobile. Oh yes, the call came at exactly 1 pm. Unheard of, but it happened. Thank You VA Tire & Auto.
