South Riding Reviews

"Customer service is very pleasant, the service is always fast and they are very accommodating."

Matthew E., March 2019

"Have been coming here for a couple years now for occasional minor repairs with our vehicles. Recently I had a nail in my tire and had an important sporting event to attend in 3 hours on a Sunday. Virginia Tire repaired my tire very quickly and had me on my way in no time. Made it to my event easily. These guys have always taken care of my needs promptly and professionally. Will bring all of my tire needs here in the future."

Greg Lucas, December 2019

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

Peter Tregear

"This place gets 5 stars due to the amazing service from Maninder Singh. Came in to get new tires. He found comparable but reasonably priced tires. Drove me to the Dulles location to get a loaner. Very polite and nice. I will come for other services."

Cheata R. , February 2019

“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.

Delores Orlando, November 2017

"Just took in both cars for VA safety and emissions inspections. Quick service and very organized. Nice waiting area with countertop with outlets for electronic devices."

Roderick B., December 2019
