    “I went to have my headlight replaced after another auto repair service said they couldn't replace it. The guys did a wonderful job and replaced the bulb no problem and it took no time at all. Both of the guys were extremely friendly and really helped me out since it was my first time doing this kind of thing!! I 10/10 recommend their services.”

    “I had to get my car towed on Friday evening, and so I got it sent to Tuffy's. They took at it the next day, and Bill Conley gave me a call about it before 11. He told me what the problem was and even texted me a picture of the problem. He went above and beyond what was required of him. The next time I have any problems with my car I will be taking it to these guys!”

    “I visited Tuffy on Coldwater rd after having new tires installed on my vehicle because i had some uneven wear on my old ones...i asked for a alignment check and repair if needed. I spoke with the front desk service person and Mr. Bill Conley the technician. They could have easily charged me for a 4 wheel alignment, i would not have known the difference. Mr. Conley brought me out in to the shop and explained to me what my alignment looked like and assured me that my vehicle did not need an alignment done. I appreciate his honesty and proffesionalism. I will be taking my vehicle to him for futur maintenance. Great job, very satisfied.....”

    “I have been a member with tuffy since I purchased my first vehicle in 2014. Bill and the mechanics there are very friendly and patient when explaining the work that is needed to fix cars. Most importantly that are very welcoming to women with children! Currently Nathan works the front desk and his costumer service is phenomenal! He is so knowledgeable about prices and cars. I had an issue with my Mercury Sable and he talked with a mechanic at the Ford dealership to make sure Tuffy can fix the problem, and get it done RIGHT. I highly recommend the synchrony Bank card. Overall good place to get your car serviced. Trustworthy men there!!!”

    “About 6 months ago I bought a used car online and I noticed the car struggled to accelerate whenever I needed to drive 40 mpr. I have a 2009 Mercury sable and I took the car to a Ford dealership to get a diagnostic test done to determine the problem. In so many words I needed a "tune-up". The Ford dealership quoted me a $900 bill. I definitely needed to get a second opinion! So I called tuffy on Coldwater since they have serviced vehicles for me in the past and have done excellent work! They are known for educating their customers about car safety and how things work. Phill and Bill are very patient and kind mechanics to women and children! I talked with the customer service rep Nathan on the phone and I explained to him what procedures were planned for the car and Nathan blew my mind when he told me I could get my car fixed at tuffy for less than $500. In fact the cost of labour at the dealer was the cost of the entire car operation at tuffy! Nathan is your go to guy for prices and parts. His knowledge is incredible in mechanics!! He even talked with the mechanic at the Ford dealership to make sure tuffy can get the job done, RIGHT! My car is running smoothly now and I am sooooo grateful that I have been a faithful member of tuffy since 2015. This autoshop is a blessing! ”

    “Started coming here about a year ago and have been impressed since the beginning. Everyone has been trustworthy, helpful, and professional. You can tell that they actually want to help, not just sell you parts or services you don’t need. At my first oil change, they did a full inspection and instead of just telling me about concerns, they took me out into the garage and showed me. Also, the coupons they send in the mail after visits are very helpful because they are tailored exactly to what needs done on your vehicle. We finally found a mechanic we can trust!”

    “I am from NV and was passing through IN on business, transporting 3 rescue animals to their new home in Albany, NY. I broke down in Fort Wayne and called Tuffy first thing in the morning. Ryan instantly fit me into their busy schedule. I came in and was treated very kindly and respectfully and like I was family. I had two dogs and two cats with me. The dogs were treated to fresh water and Bill put his jacket on the floor for them to lie down on. They allowed the dogs to be in their waiting room all day. Nathan was really sweet and spent hours scraping melted serpentine belt off of my engine. Ryan contacted my insurance company and worked with my budget. After spending all day with Ryan, Bill, and Nathan...I wanted to take them out for dinner and return the kindness. I am truly grateful...thank you so much!!! ”

    “From the second I walked in the door, these guys took great care of me. They were 100% honest with me every step of the way. I also liked how Bill walked me through exactly what was going on in a way that I could understand. It was clear I was more to them than just a paycheck: they actually cared about me as a customer. ”

    “I recently went to Tuffy to have my tires checked out after someone else checked them and didn't put them on properly. Tuffy staff alerted me to the problem and even told me about my brake fluid issues. The staff there was courteous, patient, and kind and a real life saver! I'm sure if I hadn't had my car checked when I did things could've ended horribly. Thanks again Tuffy Staff!”

    “I went in for a typical oil change and they did a full vehicle inspection. There were several things that needed replaced, could be replaced , and things that I would need to keep an eye on in the future for my specific type of car. Everything was explained thoroughly, clear, and concise so that I could understand it completely. I will definitely be returning for other services.”
