Tuffy Reviews

“Once again, Brandon and his technicians came through! Alternator on my Toyota Highlander went bad on a Monday evening. I had the car towed there on Tuesday afternoon and by Thursday afternoon, it was finished! They even fixed my battery hold down brace and charged my dead battery. They went above and beyond! Thank you! ”

“I am 75 years old and I’ve had longtime experience with car service centers. This is by far the best. Most importantly, they are honest. They have great technicians. They communicate well. I highly recommend.”

“I came in right before Thanksgiving 2020 because I wanted you guys to look at my brakes. I have a Lexus LX470 and I was positive it needed new brakes. Eric inspected my brakes and told me that they were perfect but just had rust on them that caused the squeaking sound. Brandon also took a look and showed me that they were in great shape! I have always taken my cars here and the work has always been very good and very reasonably priced. I trust them because they have always been super honest!”

“This was likely the best experience repairing a vehicle I’ve ever had. Received a quote for basically full brake equipment replacement and a front bearing. Got a call about 30 minutes later telling me that it will actually be cheaper because the original quoted part had sensors my year didn’t need. Great service just there. But that’s was just the beginning. I am called same day to come to pick up my Jeep and when I get there to pay I find out that I’ve been the victim of fraud and my checking account had all but been wiped clean. Brandon, the store manager worked with me to find a way to not only affordably fix my Jeep but helped me through an incredibly stressful time to find a resolution that allowed me to take my car home. I can’t thank him enough or Donny, the mechanic who performed the work for such efficient and quality service, but truly having compassion for their clientele in an extremely frustrating and stressful situation.”

“Brandon’s crew at Tuffy repaired my truck but then a part they installed failed. They repaired all damaged parts of my steering system and it was all covered by warranty of part that failed. No cost to me. ”

“Brandon and Crew repaired my truck then the part they installed failed. They worked on my truck until all parts were replaced and Steering was smooth and no noise from engine. All repairs were covered under warranty of part that failed, no cost to me. I will continue to bring all my vehicles here.”

“I wanted to share my experience with everyone regarding the service received from Tuffy Auto Care. My compliment is that with their tight schedule, the store manager was able to get my vehicle in for the 4-wheel alignment done after I purchased 4 tires/installed by someone else. He gave me a discounted from the regular price and the job took less than 1 hour with their busy schedule. If anyone needs service done for their car, I recommend Tuffy Auto Care in Lewis Center. They care and do a very good for you.”

“I've taken cars here for 10-15 years and have always gotten good work done at the quoted price. Monday I took a car in and was told by James the price then he said if it's this, which I won't know until I'm do e with that it will be double. I'm thinking here we go, it's going to be the higher price no question. James called earlier than he originally said and said the other item was fine it was the quoted price and work was done. The car runs much quieter and in a straight line!”

“James and Jon took care of my vehicle's complete brakes, fluid exchanges, u-joint replacement, alignment, and tire patching. I made an appointment online, did not have to wait at all when I showed up despite the lot being very busy. Jon kept in contact throughout the day, made cost effective recommendations, and even though I had plenty of work done on my vehicle ($1500 worth) it was completed by the end of the day. Thankfully I live a few minutes away; this will by my go-to location for all maintenance and upkeep needs for as long as I'm in Columbus. Thanks much!”
