    This place is great I was not sure but both my headlights went out. I could not figure out what was wrong. They figured it out within a couple hours called me and I was on my way which is great. Very reasonable in price. Very friendly staff

    Well that Marathon that that my whole family frequented for thirty years, when Cal owned it, is not that place anymore. They did not call and communicate with me as to the status of my car. Dustin, the owner was abrasive and seemed to be in a bad mood. Joe the mechanic was good and his work seems on point. Then I had to wait while the employee rewrote my bill due to the owner not being aware of an extra service performed on my car. They had the car for 7 hours and could not fix my window properly even though I made it easy for them because I already had the inside of the door apart for them The window worked fine before so I will take it to another contact I have to fix it properly.Extremely disappointing experience and I do not recommend this place if you are expecting good customer service and basic communication.Also the price I was quoted for an oil change tire rotation was " about 50.00 for oil change, 25.00 for tire rotation and then I expected about 50 to 75 for my window installation but my bill came to nearly double that.I will never be taking my car here again.I miss you Cal.After analyzing the bill, they say the oil changes $50 but then they charge you for an oil filter and it's something called shop supplies a cabin air filter air filter if $52 was for my window the labor a window they told me I can't use and so really it's ridiculous.My response to theirs.I will not get into a war of words with these folks. But I think smart intellectual people will read between the lines of how she responded and you can make your own judgment on these people, who in my opinion lack customer service skills and once again they are lying because I gave them the window to install and it worked fine for weeks Alll I did was take out the inner panel I didn't touch any other parts so they are making that up to cover for their own incompetence.All they had to do is slide the window in on the regulator and attach two screws and it will work. I know this because this is all a friend did this morning for me. There were no missing parts as the office " manager" claims.I stand by everything I stated because I am about truth and honesty.

    I had called Marathon after our CEL came on and explained what was supposedly the issue. They immediately had a spot open for us to get the car in only a couple days later and got the work done and then some within the same day and less than I had anticipated! They were extremely friendly and professional. Until this, we didn’t really have a go to mechanic that wasn’t a family member so it was an anxious process but they made it so easy and gained a customer for life.Service: General repairs & maintenance

    They have always taken good care of our vehicles (13 years) big franchise places in the area have taken advantage of us on more than one occasion but Cals has always come through.Services: General repairs & maintenance

    Val's is one of the last stand alone car repair shops in the 44060. The are fair, honest, reasonably priced & great mechanics. The corporate shops are only good for tires & oil changes.

    They fit me in to get some running boards I needed. My kids were having trouble getting in and out of my car. They got them on in under an hour and I was on my way . Thanks ??

    And a pinch stopped here and I needed some quarters for the laundromat next door and coincidentally the mechanic was in and able to do some work on an exhaust. Next day the exhaust fell off and after contacting them I was still told when I picked it up that I had to pay another hundred bucks. The owner informed me that he had he had been there he would have charged me a lot more and done it right the first time so I'm paying for his employees mistake
