They got me in right away and had me back on the road quickly. The repair cost was very reasonable for the speedy quality service I received. Highly recommend these guys!”

    “I was honestly just thrilled with the experience. I had some problems with my exhaust system and they always kept me updated, they were kind, and they went out of their way to help me the best that they could. This was the best experience I have ever had at an Auto Service establishment. I'll be sure to come back in the future!”

    “I visited Tuffy in August 2015 to have my oil changed and to have them look at a faulty a/c fan. They indicated I needed new rear brake pads and rotors. I was suspicious of this since I had had the brakes checked within the last few months. My suspicion led me to get a "second opinion" and sure enough neither the pads nor rotors needed replaced--not even close. They focus alot on selling their services, which is fine if the customer really needs it but they were deceitful so I would never ever recommend them to anyone! Stay clear of this unscrupulous business!!”

My son and I went down the street to Tuffy we are first time customers and our truck was inspected for exhaust leak and reported to me quickly, and repaired at very reasonable price, repaired right there on the spot. I like fast service and reasonable price.”
