by Verified Customer November 06, 2014

I am so happy with Tuffy's. Their prices are good, and the mechanics are top-notch. Everything is done when they say it will be, and they often go the extra mile, such as throwing in an occasional freebie or giving me a ride home when repairs will take longer than an hour. Darren the franchise owner is a terrific guy and always helpful, as are the rest of the staff.
