    “Stopped in at 1:00 on a Saturday afternoon, with no appointment.(Didn't realize I needed one.) Two employees standing in the back of two empty bays. Was told I can't get an oil change without an appointment! Bullshit! Guess you don't want my business!”

    “I’ve been bringing my car(s) here for the past couple of years and will continue to do so. It’s a refreshing change to be “advised” of what services may be required ahead instead of telling you you “need” this done right now. Paul takes the time to explain and show you exactly what he suggests for service while the car is on the rack so you can see for yourself. Again, no high pressured sales pitch. It’s the only place I feel comfortable sending my daughter to knowing that when she goes in for an oil change, she won’t be taken advantage of and sold on a bunch of services that she doesn’t really need. And the fact that I send my daughter there is quite a testimonial in itself. If their goal is to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction, they’re doing an outstanding job. For these reasons I will continue having my cars serviced here as well as recommending this specific location to friends and family. ”

    “I’ve been taking my car(s) here for the past couple of years and will continue to do so. Mainly because it’s nice to be ADVISED of what services may be needed ahead, as opposed to being TOLD you need this and that and getting the feeling you’re being sold on things that aren’t really required. It’s also refreshing to be told (and shown) what’s not needed (“brake pads are fine, fluid levels are good, tie rods are good, etc) I also have my daughter take her car here and take comfort in knowing that she too won’t be taken advantage of and sold on services that aren’t really necessary, just so they can line their pockets. Rare to find honesty and integrity in this field of business, and that’s how they make me feel. For those reasons I wil continue to recommend this particular Tuffy location to friends and family. ”

    “I’ve been taking my car(s) here for the past couple of years and will continue to do so. Why? Because they ADVISE you of what services may be required ahead, instead of telling you of services you need right now and may not necessarily be true. Honesty seems to be their best attribute. It’s also nice to be told what’s NOT wrong with your car. (“brakes are good, tires are good, fluid levels are fine” etc) No up selling here. I have my daughter take her car here for service too knowing that she won’t be taken advantage of and sold on a bunch of services and repairs that aren’t really needed. For these reasons I will continue to have my car serviced here, as well as referring this particular Tuffy location to friends and family. ”

    “I’ve taken my car(s) here for the past couple of years and will continue to do so. It’s refreshing to be ADVISED what service may be required down the road, as well as pointing out everything that’s NOT wrong with the car. (“tie rods are good, fluid levels are good, brake pads ok” etc.) I’m also comfortable having my daughter take her car here too knowing that she won’t be taken advantage of and sold all sorts of service and repairs that aren’t needed. Because of all of the above I will continue to recommend this particular Tuffy Service Center to friends and family. ”

    “What a great experience! From the free loaner car to the honesty about what was needed and not needed, to the free year of roadside assistance. They called around and found the least expensive place to purchase the part. So happy I randomly picked them when my car broke down.”
