Comment: Mike, the manager of this establishment, and his team are truly remarkable. They not only provide exceptional service but also really amazing prices. Unlike some other mechanics, they refrain from recommending unnecessary services, ensuring a transparent and trustworthy experience. Highly recommend them for their honesty and skill in automotive maintenance.

Comment: My dad had me drop my car off because it was making noise, and he wanted to make sure I was safe to drive it back to school. They informed us what was wrong, and finished it that day so I would be able to drive back to school in time! When I called them a little before they closed, they said that it will be finished today, but will probably be a little after they closed.They were very kind, and I appreciate them very much for doing this for me! 10/10 recommend going to them!!!

Comment: As out-of-state travelers who found themselves stranded with a broken muffler on a Thursday evening, we were incredibly grateful for the help we received at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center. After calling around to several other shops and being turned down, Tuffy was the only one willing to stay late and help us out.We arrived at the shop shortly before they were scheduled to close, but the staff was friendly and welcoming. They quickly assessed the problem and gave us an estimate for the repair. We were happy to learn that the price was reasonable and that they could get the job done quickly.The mechanics at Tuffy worked efficiently and had our car repaired in less than an hour. They added extra work to their already heavy schedule to make sure we were able to get back on the road in time to make our trip back to Ohio the next morning.We are so appreciative of the kindness and professionalism of the staff at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center. They went above and beyond to help us out in a difficult situation.I highly recommend this shop to anyone in need of muffler repair.

Comment: Took my Toyota to a local Muffler shop and was told it needed 2 pipes that they couldnt get for at least 5 days and it was going to cost $2100.00. Made a few calls and ended up taking the car to Tuffy Auto Service Center. They fixed the pipes without buying new ones and it only cost me $333.00. All is quiet in my Toyota again. Thank you Tuffy!

Comment: Amazing customer service! Went in for an inspection, got some really bummer news I wasn’t expecting but still very pleased with how tactful and professional the entire experience was when delivering bad news. My visit resulted in some pretty big changes to our family transportation, which was in NO way related to the work these gentlemen performed. This also led to extra steps in taking care of things that were not their problem at all, yet Mike had no hesitation in helping me figure out everything I needed. I will definitely return with any future vehicle and needs it requires. Bonus points for being patient with my toddler and infant!!

Comment: I needed brakes. Went in and they were able to accommodate my needs in a timely manner for a complete brake job. Price is in line with most shops. Staff is friendly and accommodating. If you must wait at the shop, there is a pizza shop across the parking lot and if you missed breakfast Randys Diner is just around the corner.

Comment: Hands down the best service I’ve received in a long time. I was in Traverse City on vacation and cv axel broke and I was unable to drive my car. They were able to get me in same day and get it fixed so I didn’t have to rent a car and drive all the way back up from Indianapolis. Thank you again for your top notch service!!

Comment: I was driving by their shop right when my van starting making brake noises. I stopped in and they could and would fix it that same day. Pretty polite people and all, I just didnt expect the work that would need done and feel like I paid a little more than I wanted. But they were fast, professional, and fixed the van that day and that was worth it to me 👍

Comment: Absolutely phenomenal service! Just moved into our first house a few weeks ago (about 35 minutes outside of town) had to get my breaks and rotors replaced due to a metal grinding noise. Called in on a Saturday after calling around and hearing other places were booked out for weeks. Was able to come in and get a quote on the repairs needed and get all new brakes and rotors replaced same day!! My battery light came on last night when every place was closed. I went to advanced auto parts on south airport to get my battery and alternator checked, and all of a sudden I needed my alternator replaced. Called in the next morning and was able to come in right away and be serviced yet again on my car (with very little wait time) staff is all very friendly and knowledgeable with the work that they do. Coming from someone who admittedly knows pretty much nothing about vehicles, it was very reinsuring how they described the issues and what it would take to get things fixed. Long story short, my alternator is now fixed and my car feels almost brand new! Thank you Tuffy team!! Highly-highly recommend getting repairs done here!

Comment: The most wonderful customer service received!!! Today, I backed into a pole while up here on vacation. My car was badly damaged and my muffler was dragging. We called and spoke to Jim who immediately told us to bring it in and they’d give us an answer right away (it’s Saturday). I was so afraid we weren’t going to be able to get home but within 20 mins we had the fairest quote and explanation and 3 hours later I was back on the road.Jim, was incredible throughout the entire process. He truly saved the day. I’m baffled at how quick the fix was and thankful I’m not in a rental waiting for a shop to open. It’s 4 hours from my home but I’d come back just for him! Thank you!!!

Comment: I initially took my suburu here for the muffler and was told of a few other safety issues needing attention, in which didnt hesitate to schedule another appointment. I received a call from a technician named Mike, informing me, while working on my vehicle, one of the issues didnt require the repair they initially thought did, which of course saved me much cost! This was so appreciated and refreshing to know, there are still honest businesses out there, unlike subie guys, that will take you for all you have. Tuffy- you have my business for the remainder of my vehicles! Thank you for your honesty, promptness, and kindness!

Comment: Big thanks to the friendly crew at Tuffy! I was visiting the Traverse area for the weekend from Illinois and picked up a bad vibration. On a Saturday afternoon, when the Buick dealership was already closed, they quickly identified my problem. After a quick removal of snow from my rims, I was on my way without having to pay a penny. You guys are the best!

Comment: I took my Kia in for service. Everyone at Tuffy could not have been more professional, gave great service. The days of the past, where you had to wait 25 minutes after they pulled your car in, to get service are over. I got in right away and the Auto Technician began working on my car and had it fixed within 25 minutes. They have good Techs, that waste not time, they get right to work. Everyone was friendly. Now, I will be coming back to Tuffy for all my car needs. Thank you Tuffy. God Bless

Comment: In town on vacation with a car full of kids and my exhaust broke. It was a rain day in Traverse City and were heading to the indoor water park. It was a huge bummer and we thought the day was ruined. We pulled up to Tuffy with no notice and they had us back on the road within 30 minutes!!!!! Amazing service. Can’t say enough about how great they were. My kids had a great day because of them. Thank you Team Tuffy-Traverse City!!!!

Comment: I 100% understand that getting service done on a Saturday without an appointment is a total flip of the coin as to how long one will have to wait. I happened to go on a less busy Saturday, but not having to wait long was just icing on the cake. The gentlemen who worked there were professional, friendly, knowledgeable and displayed good old common sense. They were kind and acknowledged my young boys who had no choice but to be in tow with me for such a fun errand. If I ever need service again, I know where to go.

Comment: Cannot say enough great things about this place. I took my car to another exhaust shop because I had a pretty bad leak, and they wanted over $1000 for new catalytic converter’s We’re full of cracks and unsalable. I asked if they could be welded and was told I needed to buy an entire new exhaust system. When I took it to this Tuffy shop, I was given I was given various options on how I could fix the leak, none of which involves needing to replace an entire system. Ended up having them weld the cracks for a grand total of $32 and fixed the leak 99.9% of the way. Will definitely be taking my car here in the future.

Comment: I highly recommend Tuffys. They are extremely competitive with their rates. Friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Jim, called me after the inspection of my vehicle. He explained in detail what the problems were and detailed the pricing. I am completely satisfied and they honored a lifetime warranty I had on my brake pads. I will continue to highly recommend them.

Comment: Ive worked with mike and nick several times when i was having car troubles and when money was tight. The reality of it is is that this is a chain, not a locally owned business and probably arent in control of the prices that are made on things. They set prices higher then the stores like advanced or autozone on parts yes because they have overhead prices to pay just like sears or anyother place in town. But I can assure you all parts they use are top quality. They are honest and give advice and generally if you buy your own parts and have them put it in you can save some money. They are willing to work with you and help as much as they can. The many times Ive been there they had made one mistake, owned up to it and didnt charge me. Cheap labor isnt skilled and skilled labor isnt cheap.

Comment: Took my truck in when the exhaust broke free from its clamps and ripped a hole in a pipe They fixed it for less than $100, when another shop wanted way more because they would only replace the whole exhaust system. Tuffy also found a stabilizer bar that had come unbolted, and reattached it for free since it just took a few seconds.

Comment: After about a month of increased muffler rattle, noticed muffler dangling on one of its supports, cattywampus, and investigated underneath to discover it completed separated from the exhaust pipe. God bless Michigans salted roads. Drove to a competing store at opening 8am only to be turned away, We cant even give you an estimate until late this afternoon. Drove by Tuffy and pulled in on a whim. They, too, were down a couple of mechanics and overbooked, but the owner offered to drive me to work and keep the car there for the estimate. They called me at work to describe a $140 repair (a $90 part and $50 in labor). This was a huge relief in that the muffler itself costs $470 and I figured I was likely going to need a replacement. The owner then picked me up from work and I paid for the work and retrieved my car. Excellent customer service. Repair focused rather than bill-maximization. Excellent repair. Couldnt be more pleased.

Comment: Ive had multiple cars that Ive taken to Tuffy in Traverse and Ive always left feeling confident that the problem was taken care of. As an example, I used a different mechanic/shop because I needed a new water pump. They replaced it, but that left me stranded because they didnt take the time to look further and see that the entire cooling system needed to be replaced. Tuffy, on the other hand, has never done that, and looks at the starting point and ending point of any problem. They are honest and very conservative in their assessments. They dont like to tell you that a part could go another 500 miles because it could snap pulling out of the driveway, but they have done it for me in a pinch. They are looking to get you a SAFE car. Multiple times Ive gone in and theyve found the problem fast, called within a half hour, and had the repair done within a couple hours. In addition, on several occasions, Ive walked out paying LESS than the estimate. Their manager Mike is an upstanding guy as well, and the others really know what theyre doing. Will continue to go back!

Comment: I was quoted 1900 elsewhere to replace exhaust from the catback. Tuffy quoted 330 to fix those parts that really needed fixing. Very happy with that pragmatic approach.

Comment: Always able to get me in, always great service, and never once have they tried to talk me into services I didnt need. They always listen to me and take what I say to heart (even though Im a young woman and often auto service workers tend to ignore my thoughts on the problem). The prices are also fair. I will continue to use them as my main auto service center!

Comment: Took my car to a near by dealership. They wanted to replace my exhaust system and catalytic converter to the tune of $2,225.00. Took it to Tuffy Muffler on S. Garfield for a second opinion, they got it in within minutes and gave me a free estimate to repair what was needed, $123.60! They were wonderful to deal with, pleasant and thural. I would highly recommend these guys! .
