Comment: Got an appointment for my brakes and they were able to have it done the next day! Herb answered all of my questions honestly and explained everything that needed done immediately vs in a few months. Genuinely felt like they love what they do and arent just out to upcharge. Sad I didnt try them out sooner!

Comment: I personally recommend this service centre because they provided very great service, I got an issue with my cars rear tyre blow got reduced and I thought that was punctured. I take my car to Tuffys service centre and they really helped a lot and they explained the reason very effectively because they checked it very carefully, then they provided their best service and I feel this is the best service centre in the town. Undoubtedly you can visit their centre if you get into any issue with your car.Thanks a lot Tuffys service centre, wish you good luck and keep going.

Comment: Herb and his team are the best! I can always trust an honest diagnosis when I bring my car to them. Each time they get back to me in a timely matter and clearly explain their findings, options, and costs. Herb honored a part that was in warranty that needed to be replaced. I was very pleased when Herb gave me a list of repairs that were needed but gave me the option of only repairing what was immediately needed to drive safely, letting me know the other repairs could wait for a few more months.

Comment: I was referred to Herb at Tuffy specifically by one of my colleagues at the Ann Arbor Economic Club. My experiences with auto repair shops was frustrating until the day I starting working with Herb. Now I can honestly say I don’t stress about vehicle maintenance and repair. Herb is efficient and thorough. He keeps me informed about what to expect as my car ages. I always refer my friends and family to Herb now when they need auto repairs.

I’ve taken my old clunkers to Herb and his team works magic. I’ve taken my hybrid to Herb and his team works magic. Whatever vehicle comes in his door I know Herb and his team works magic.

Comment: John is the man!!! I was an hour away from home when my tire was punctured by a massive semi wheel weight on the highway. I was sure that the tire was done for. But I thought Id take a chance and had the car towed to Tuffy and John took a look. Even though the shop didnt have all of the necessary supplies on hand, he was very accommodating and was open to let me bring in my own patch kit for him to try. John worked his magic and was successful! I was so relieved that I didnt have to buy a new tire.

Comment: My exhaust fell apart going down washtenaw ave and pulled over next to the tuffy shop... I had no money and I just wanted to let them know that I would be sitting there so I could wait for a tow truck to take my car home and the really cool person I talked too offered to rig it with a coat hanger for me so I didnt have to pay for the tow... next time I have car problems I will be bringing my car here to people who care...thank you so much Tuffy!

Comment: Herb was very patient, kind, and knowledgeable in telling me how the braking system works in a car. A lot of shops tend to make you pay more than you should, but I felt like tuffy gave me a solid deal on brake pads and the rotors. Overall good experience and I will be back if I have any other repairs to be done.

Additionally, they also fixed the car door and put a new windshield wipers for free!! Really appreciate their professionalism and support they showed. They charged not much and was very understanding. Will come back again to do the rest of the work.

Comment: I drive a 15+ year old car that Im inadvisably still really attached to, so it ends up in the shop pretty often. I bring it here because its the best shop in town Ive found; theyre quick, and usually not too busy. The manager Herbs a great guy, wont try to tack on or upsell you anything even when the opportunity is probably there, and usually knows and adds on whatever coupons and specials Tuffy/Mavis is running for the work you need. So far in the past couple years Ive needed full front/back brake pads and rotors, muffler and everything south of the catalytic converter in the exhaust system replaced, and front struts, plus my 150k once-over service and a diagnostic here and there for all the weird little noises and quirks an old car comes with. The major work so far has been finished within a day or two and run me maybe a thousand or less each time; the minor work has all been same-day and I suspect maybe a little underbilled for the amount of time and how thorough they are with their diagnostics and consultations.The last time I came by was with a super busy week coming up that I really could not afford for my car to die in the middle of, my engine had started making a slight high, whiny noise kinda like an old vacuum cleaner that had me worried. The shop was actually closed the morning I took it in; they were having some electrical issue which had knocked out the garage for the day, but I caught Herb in between putting out fires and the shop phone ringing off the hook, and he was kind enough to come out and take a listen to it, assured me it didnt sound like anything that would turn catastrophic anytime soon. Didnt cost me anything but the peace of mind was worth a lot to me.

Just good people, out to help where they can. Will definitely be back for anything i need in the future. Thanks John!

Comment: This Tuffy is the best mechanic shop I’ve been to. I have been a loyal customer here since 2018. They do great work and see you as soon as possible. They don’t double book their appointments so your estimated wait is accurate. They also always answer the phone and get back to you quickly. I get my oil changes and brakes done here and the price is always affordable or they have a great discount going on. I always recommend this shop to friends and family.

Comment: Herb, the manager at Tuffy is phenomenal! Truly an honorable upstanding man who you just know cares about you and really tries his best to help you with your vehicle needs. They even work with third-party resources that will assist you in payment like Friends Indeed or Michigan Works. The work performed on my car was exceptional and the price was fair. This is not a place where the mechanics are trying to scam and get over on you. They truly care about the work that they do. They have worked on my car twice and I have been satisfied with both results! They fix your car in a timely manner, where you’re not just waiting forever to be back on the road. Highly highly highly recommend them!

From the first call I made up until I went to pick my car up, Herb was so helpful answering every question and concern I had. It ended up being a loose ground cable that was draining my battery, and Tuffy fixed it easily. Thank you Herb & thank you Tuffy! I will be going there for oil changes and other issues from now on!

Comment: This was my first time coming to Tuffy’s and everyone was so helpful. I got a new used vehicle and I came in for a full work up and guys made sure they thoroughly inspected my car inside and out. They went over all of their findings thoroughly and the manager Herb Martin made sure I understood everything! They were also very prompt and efficient; once they got my parts I had my vehicle back by the end of the day. I certainly recommend bringing your vehicle here if you are having any issues.

Comment: I recently had my brakes replaced at Tuffy Auto Repair on Washtenaw Rd, and I couldnt be happier with the service I received. Herb, the manager, and the employees are truly amazing! They are always so friendly and helpful, and they go above and beyond to make sure their customers are happy. I always feel like Im in good hands when I bring my car here. Herb is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to explain everything to me in a way that I can understand. The employees are all skilled mechanics who do great work. I cant say enough good things about them! I highly recommend Tuffy Auto Repair for all your car repair needs. Thank you, Herb and the team, for the excellent service!

Comment: Staff was helpful from start to finish. I was kept informed about the status of my vehicle and they were clear on what needed to be done. I have an older vehicle; they were careful to address what needed to be done and gave me a good report on what to anticipate in the days ahead. Very positive experience and good work accomplished.

Comment: I had a flat tire very close to this Tuffy. Unfortunately I did not have a spare tire or they woud have replacd it for me for a nominal cost. They tried to inflate the tire but it had a substantial leak, so I had it towed to a tire dealer.They do not sell tires at this location. The were very kind and let me wait at ther facility for my tow. Great servise.

Comment: I have had my vehicles serviced by Herb for 15years. He is always honest ,professional and never tries to sell me anything I dont need. I trust him and Tuffy and thats very important to me . Today I took my truck in for an oil change and some front end issues. Ended up being tire balancing and not the front end. He could have charged me hundreds for a not needed repair but thats not who Herb is. They dont even do tires at Tuffy so there was not even up sell . If you need an honest mechanic , then Herb at Tuffys is your guy .

We have two cars so were in and out every few months with oil changes and regular tune-ups. They are great about only fixing things that truly need to be fixed and giving you a solid very reasonable price. I never feel schemed or like theyre trying to nickel and dime me. One time there ended up being more work needed than they had originally quoted me and they did it for free.

Comment: After getting a flat tire late last night, neither I nor roadside assistance could get my spare tire down from the carrier. Because of this, I had my car towed to what my insurance company said was the nearest tire repair shop. Unfortunately, my insurance was wrong and this Tuffy does not do tire repairs/replacements. Nonetheless, Herb and his team helped me get my spire tire on, directed me to the nearest tire shop, and did an oil change since I was due. After my wild goose chase of a night, it was nice to know that I was in good hands. Ill definitely be back for my next oil change.

Comment: Sounded like my muffler had a hole in it. Went to a couple places. One said it was my catalytic converter. They cut it off. I then went to Tuffy based on recommendation from Phil Clark. Herb said if I still had the converter. The previous place would not give it up. Said it was too hot to put in my car. That mistake cost me 80 bucks. Needless to say Ill be back. Old car with only 94k miles. Very happy with the speed, courtesy and honesty.

Comment: I went there looking for tire service because I had a bad flat tire. I had no idea how to change the tire to my spare. They do not even have tire service and the workers were nice enough to change my tire to the spare. When they were finished I asked them how much I owed, they replied with nothing. I cannot thank them enough for this, I was having a very bad day and they could tell I was upset. The fact that they helped me out and on top of all that did not charge me anything means the world to me. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Comment: My friends and family are loyal supporters of the manager, Herb Martin, who has always gone out of his way to be honest with us about what repairs and maintenance are needed. He has been more than fair in pricing. I have trusted many repairs and tricky diagnostics with him and his associates over the years and he has come through time and again. My cars are OLD, but he still takes good care of them. If something goes wrong the next day after a repair, hell make it right. Where he goes, his customers follow. I hope he considers me a friend, as I do him.

Comment: Herb and Chris are some of the best people in the business. I had a friend diagnose my vehicle before taking it in preliminary in order to get an idea of what is going to have to be done to fix a brake pulsation. I was expecting it to cost anywhere from 150-500 dollars to fix. After taking it in Chris found that all it was was some rust on the inner side of the brake rotor and fixed it without charging me for brakes or rotors, which they easily could have done. Ill never go anywhere else after this!

Comment: On 2-17-20 I visited this location with concerns I was having with my rear shocks. Herb a great gentleman welcomed me and remembered me from phone conversation we had previous to me coming in which was great. While they had my car i had them to do some other work to my car that need to be done as well. Herb helped me with getting that together as well. Now i would like to say this that knowing that I purchased my car 2014 Chrysler from Cuter Chrysler right across the street from them I go to Tuffys Auto to have them do my oil change, recently Shock work, Oil pan change ect..ect..ect.. So I was checking into somethings to make sure i could cover the cost of all the work they were doing and realized i was going to be short. Lord behold they excepted the payment I had and the owner Pat sorry didt get his last name blessed me that day and said that they had it not to worry. I am very thankful to him and the guys that work at this location. I have not had a problem with them at all and each time i have visited there location they have been perfect gentlemen and helped me with questions and concerns. They have beat out the Big dealer across the street. Love this location keep up the good work Guys!!!

Comment: Been going to this particular Tuffy (not just any Tuffy, this one is an independent franchise) since my first $500 car at age 16 in 2002. They helped me keep it running past 240,000 miles. Now I manage a local business and they service our fleet of company vehicles. Over the years Ive been to a couple other places in a pinch and half the time Ive had to take my car back here to have the work done correctly! The ONLY car repair shop Ive ever visited who has down-sold me and prioritized whats best for me and for my car, not just best for them! I cant say enough nice things about these guys. When they cant do something, they say so straight up & recommend someone else who can. When something isnt urgent, they dont push you to do the work. And when they fix something, it stays fixed. Hope youre enjoying your retirement Jerry and your new guys are keeping up the excellent work! (Thats how long Ive been coming here...jeez!) Ask for Blake or Herb.

Comment: I came in for an estimate on repairing the muffler and exhaust system of my early 2000s vehicle, after visiting two shops prior. From those two shops, I received estimates of $900-1050, but at Tuffy, they thoroughly cut costs wherever they could and significantly beat the competitors prices. I ended up saving over $300 at Tuffy, and the customer service was phenomenal every step of the way. This Tuffy wont try to add on unnecessary costs, will get you the lowest price, and will get your car out the garage the same day. They know what theyre doing.

Comment: Not sure why this place doesnt have higher ratings.I installed an aftermarket exhaust on my car, but it didnt fit quite right. It has no leaks, but the midpipe would vibrate against the frame of the car.When I took my car to a nearby shop with a higher rating, the mechanic took a look and said there was nothing he could do because the exhaust wasnt made to fit my car (it was for a previous generation).Took my car to Tuffy and they were able to modify the piping to make everything fit correctly, for a very modest price. Would definitely return if I have any future issues with my vehicle.

Comment: My previous mechanic was booked solid so I decided to try Tuffy on recommendation from a friend. My car was running poorly again, after being fixed a few months prior by my last mechanic. The guy at Tuffy explained that he did it all wrong, and told me he could fix it but advised me to take my car back to the last place and make them do it properly. He didnt even charge me for diagnostics. A+++.
