Car mechanic-y people: Can I trust serpentine belt replacememt at Valvoline, as its an easy change, or should I take it to the stealership? ?
I dont have a local mechanic, nor family in the town I moved to. I take it to the stealership when maintenance is needed because I dont want the risk of being ripped off at a local guy(I live in a scam city)

Hard to mess this up. Last I did it, I had bought a new Gates belt (as good or better than any OEM) but had Brake Masters do it. They had no problem with me supplying part, gave me a discount and warranty, anyway. That Chrysler was a Pain to change the belt on.

I would not. Seek out any reputable independent mechanic in your area. This is s simple repair.

Aftermarket parts should be the same quality as OEM, though less expensive. Compare the labor rates to decide which facility is best for you.
