Comment: This was my first time going to a car shop since getting my car and Nate was extremely friendly and helpful with my oil change. He explained the process of an oil change and exactly what comes with the price of an oil change. He also answered my other random car questions and was generally very very nice! Would definitely recommend :)

Comment: I was surprisingly able to get in the same day as I called. They guys got my car hoisted up and were able to show me the issue with my exhaust. Instead of trying to tell me I needed an entire new exhaust system, they were able to fix the area that was the issue and got me out the door for just over $100. They were respectful and very pleasant from my initial phone call to when I walked out the door with my car fixed.

Comment: The technicians are very experienced, and I trust their inspections. I initially brought my 2012 Acadia there for an exhaust repair and found out they are not just the ole 1970 muffler shop anymore. They are now my go-to service shop for all maintenance! I plan on bringing my Dads 2003 Terrain there for some TLC.

Comment: While traveling to the eastside of the State of Michigan, our car broke-down on I-94 at 10:30pm on a Friday evening. We had it towed to Tuffy in Portage. They called me to let me know they received and would have a mechanic check it out Monday morning. I received a call from them that Monday with a diagnosis on our car. With the car being 15 years old with 175,000 miles, we made the decision to donate it to charity. They allowed us to keep the car in their parking lot at no charge for 5 days until it was picked-up. They also verified with us when the towing company arrived. I wish they were located closer to where we live.

Comment: Tuffys professionals were incredibly helpful and honest. We were test driving a used vehicle we were considering purchasing, and we wanted it inspected. They provided a thorough evaluation, carefully explained every issue, and did it all even though it was very late in the day. They really saved us. I would highly recommend them

Comment: Top notch service. Left church to find I was rapidly losing tire pressure. Zipped over to Tuffy who has worked on our vehicle in the past. I was worried when I popped in when I saw the bays were full and everyone was working hard. Justin and Alayna heard me and jumped into action. Justin quickly found the nail and made the repair. They were so kind and helpful. We will definitely be back. Thank you!

Comment: Rob and Elaina were awesome in their effort to diagnose and replace our broken rear differential, wheel bearings, and brakes. They didn’t try to up-sale us on front brakes, even though they could have. They worked with our warranty company and we’re amazing at communicating throughout the whole process. 10/10 would recommend for honest service.

Comment: Wow! I called thinking I would just need to patch up a leak on my tire. To my surprise when I got the the Tuffy location in Portage MI, my tire was completely shredded! Justin W asked if I had a spare (I did not). Then I called to get a spare tire I had at home in Gobles MI to be brought to us. But Justin looked in the pile of old tires and found one that would get me home safely so I could get my other tire on! The kindness and professionalism Justin W and his coworker showed me, made me feel so much better than when I arrived. I will be going back to this location for all my vehicle needs.

Comment: I recently went to Tuffy to have my brakes replaced. I ran into an issue several weeks later, but everything was rectified immediately. Thank you Darrell, James, Justin W. and Justin O. You were all amazing, and extremely professional. I thought I had lost faith in getting my car serviced, but I was wrong. I would defiantly recommend this establishment, and will be returning for all future auto services. It is rare to find such A+ service. I am extremely happy and feel 💯 percent safer to drive my vehicle.

Comment: I needed to have my car brakes checked/replaced if necessary, made an appointment for 9 a.m. Staff was pleasant and let me know along the way how the front and rear brakes were. The front pads, rotors, calipers were all replaced by noon even though parts delivery took over an hour due to staff shortages at the auto parts store.As for price, I was warned by friends that brake jobs are way more expensive these days, so I was prepared. But I was charged only about $100 over what I paid over 5 years ago on another car, a happy surprise.I will definitely return there for my service needs in the future.

Unfortunately the nail was in the sidewall and not fixable, but they put my spare on and examined the tire for no charge. I wouldve had them replace the tire but they didnt have any snow tires in stock. Highly recommend.

He and front end Gave me options of what was important now and what could potentially wait and the pros and cons of doing either decision. Went over cost and options as well. Very professional and didnt make me feel pressured into a decision. I was also given the option of a loaner car or a ride back home and pick up when my car was ready. Thanks Tuffy! :)

Comment: So What started out as frustrating experience with are new to us suv breaking only after just a month of owning it,was turned into finding a good quality,honest family centered mechanic shop that we will use from here on out!! Rick was friendly with me and my kids and made sure we were taken care of. Also so was Emily who worked the desk. Every one there is very nice. On top of that the mechanic that worked on my suv his name was Shawn! I can’t say enough how straightforward and honest he was about the work that needed to be done. He explained everything so I could understand it. He made sure that I was able to see what was actually broken and what it would take to fix it. He even gave me pointers for things to pay attention to for certain problems so I have a better understanding of my suv! On top of that they did everything they could to correct things that were Not right. The guys and gal at tuffy will definitely take care of you and treat u like family! Shawn you were awesome! Rick you were awesome! Emily so we’re you!

Comment: Took in my Cadillac escalade for steering suspension inspection after going to 3 other places and not getting much resolution including cadillac. I went into Tuffy and worked with Mark he was professional, knowledgable, and went above and beyond to explain his recommmendations and findings. He took us in the shop to show us under the vehicle and explain and point out what he found. I will def be going back to work with Mark again!

Comment: Car started overheating on the way back to Chicago on Sunday. Brooke and the techs were open and honest about what they could do that same day and were able to do a coolant diagnostic right away. After adding coolant, they were unable to find a leak and sent me on my way without pushing any unnecessary work.I subtracted one star because the coolant diagnostic was $50, while the Sears auto center around the corner quoted $30. If you have the time and want to scrimp, it might be worth it to check around.I was just glad to be able to get back home to Chicago that day.

Comment: Over the past 3 years, since I discovered Tuffy Portage, I havent taken my car anywhere else. Theres no need to.Every single staff member that I have interacted with has been friendly and, most importantly, honest and practical. I have never felt pressured into any repairs, and I so appreciate the time that the staff takes to explain exactly what is going on with my car.Todd, in particular, is extra helpful (and a car encyclopedia in human form). He took the time to carefully listen to my description about an electrical issue in my car, ask clarifying questions, and thoroughly explain what could be done before booking me for an appointment. The upfront-ness of Tuffy Portage is unmatched in any car repair shop that Ive previously used.I highly recommend Tuffy Portage for any car maintenance or repair needs. You will not regret your experience there.

Comment: The staff is helpful and professional, and I had my car back within 48 hours. I cant speak to the quality of the work or parts used, but everything seems great and my car is running fine.However, like many of the reviewers point out, this place is very expensive! $1,100 to replace 2 struts and complete an alignment is a bit outrageous. If you dont mind paying several hundred dollars more than fair market value of the cost of repairs this is the shop for you.

Comment: Wow. This place was actually referred to me by the place that did my auto body work after an accident. Super friendly and honest. The last time I went in, they could have charged me much more because of what I believed was the issue, and they didnt even try. Price on par with most service centers, but they dont try to look for things to charge for. Talking with people in the reception area, and they have all had similar experiences and the same loyalty.

Comment: The wiper linkage went out on my Alero on a Saturday on a holiday weekend. They were not only open and able to fix it, they were happy to do so. Other companies said they couldnt fit me in for a few days. Also, they asked how I wanted to be contacted (via text) and then actually used that means to contact me. Its rare to find a business that actually follows through in that way. Very friendly people, prompt and friendly service (even on a holiday weekend!)—highly recomended!

Comment: Being new to the area we chose Tuffy based upon their online reviews and Im extremely glad that we did. T at the front desk was super kind and friendly and took the time to give us a list of options that we could choose from based upon manufacturer recommendations, tech recommendations or the bare minimum that we would need to keep the vehicle up and running at the lowest cost. We felt no pressure to purchase anything and were really impressed with the quality of work. They showed us the parts that were replaced and seemed very concerned that my wife feel comfortable driving our Jeep Cherokee. I could not have been more pleased with our overall experience and we will continue to be customers at this car doctor.

The front desk staff were super helpful and kind. I had a filter that needed to be changed as well. The way the front desk staff asked me if I wanted to replace it was easy and they didnt pressure me. They were just nice and real. Would recommend based off this one experience! Would go back!

Comment: BEST car repair shop in all of the Kalamazoo and Portage area!I cannot say enough good things about this place. I have been to, I swear, almost every repair shop in Kalamazoo and Portage because I have had all sorts of issues with my car.I have been scammed, lied to, etc, in the past by places and told I needed hundreds even thousands of dollars in repairs I did not truly need.Tuffys employees were honest, quick, and polite. Not only did they explain everything to me in detail, they also brought me into the repair shop while my car was hitched up and showed me the issues and what needed to be fixed. They were all so polite and helpful, I couldnt believe I had never gone to Tuffys before.Everything was done on time and actually even early, and one of the employees even volunteered to stay after close to work on my car so that I could have it the same evening.I recommend this place to everyone now and will definitely be coming back!!!

Comment: I pulled up at the fitness center on Stadium dr not too far from the shop....and all of a sudden Im dragging some metal piece under my car. (Embarrassing loud scrapping sound) I had no idea what it was but I knew it couldnt be good. I drove very slowly to the nearest shop which just happened to be Tuffy. A nice guy by the name of Rob looked at my car...found out it was the heat Shield. He got it back onto my car and out the door quickly on a Saturday! But the greatest part was when I took out my wallet to pay.....he said no charge. GREAT SERVICE.

Comment: After purchasing a battery from AutoZone, it was tested and AutoZone told me that my alternator wasnt working and I needed to get it fixed. I came to Tuffy and they ran a diagnostics test before jumping right into repairs and found that there wasnt anything wrong with my alternator. Instead of taking advantage and charging me for a new one they were honest and told me up front there was nothing wrong. I strongly recommend coming here, they were very kind, had a lot of availability for appointments and very knowledgable.

Comment: I called yesterday to get my car looked at since the windshield wiper fluid wasnt working, they got me in the same day. When I arrived they fixed the problem and made sure I understood what was wrong. A couple months ago I went to this same location for an oil change and to have my tires rotated, I cant say enough about these guys. Theyve made me feel respected and not intimidated (which being a women and going to the mechanic can be a little daunting). I know nothing about cars but when I walk out of this location I always know what the problem was and how they fixed it! There my go-to for all things related to my car!

They saw us right away on a busy Saturday and fixed the issue within 20 minutes. When we asked how much we owe they said have a nice day and enjoy your wedding and sent us out the door without paying a dime for their service. Very friendly, nice people. Thank you!

Comment: To find a trustworthy, honest, and knowledgeable mechanic is like finding a needle in a haystack! I stumbled upon Tuffy 2 years ago while looking for a competitive bid for a brake job for my wifes car, I honestly had no intention of doing business with them, but when I met them (Brandon and Emily) I was taken back by their honesty regarding the job (doing what needed to be done instead of recommending I replace everything), their customer service, and finally their pricing, which was fair and competitive! I recommend giving them a shot for your next mechanical car need and letting THEM prove to you why Ill never go anywhere else!

They are down to earth and personable, and for once I didnt feel totally in the dark about my car. I felt like they were talking to a person and not just a customer, and looking to help me instead of sell me something. Also, not bad pricing!Particular shout out to Todd and Chris, both very helpful, very down-to-earth guys.

Comment: Tuffy was recommended to me by a colleague at work when I moved to Kalamaozo two years ago. Since then, I have taken our Volvos to Tuffy and have been satisfied with the service provided by both the Kalamazoo and the Portage location (owned by the same person).A recent example of their good customer service was when they looked at a leak we were having in one of our cars. It had been 6-8 months since they had replaced the rack-and-pinion on the car (a big expense for any vehicle, but we liked the vehicle and wanted to keep it), and they looked at the car to see where was the leak. They spent time diagnosing where the fluids could be coming from. Even though the leak looked like it was coming from the transmission (they had us also have a transmission shop look at it confirm that the transmission was in good order), it was finally determined that there was a lose fitting on a tube from the rack. Even though it had been some time since they installed the new rack, they made sure the leak was fixed and did so without any charge. I appreciated the extra time and attention they provided to ensure the leak was fixed (they looked at the vehicle serval times a week latter just to make sure the leak was solved). Thanks.

Comment: My visit to Tuffy Kalamazoo was impromptu rather than planned, when my exhaust fell off my vehicle when I was driving down Stadium. I walked in not knowing what to expect (being a relatively new car owner), but I was impressed with their prompt, courteous service. They took a look, gave an accurate estimate and explained what they repaired in terms I could understand and despite my inexperience they were kind to my budget by not trying to sell me a new part where an old one would do. The repair was done in a timely fashion, and when I left, my car was once more purring like a kitten. 5 out of 5 stars, would definitely recommend them.

Comment: Overall, I had a very positive experience with Tuffy! I am from out of town and needed my brakes checked before I could go home. They made an appointment for me that worked around my conference that I was in town for. Upon arrival, it took 40 minutes for them to take my car into the shop. However, once they took it in, they did a thorough check and provided an honest evaluation of which issues were urgent and which could wait. They stayed open almost an hour past closing time on a Friday afternoon to finish my car so I could go home that night. I would highly recommend their services in the Kalamazoo area!

I have had bad experiences with a few automotive shops in the area but I will be coming back to this one for my car repairs.The staff is knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I dont feel I am interrupting them when I ask questions. I know nothing about cars other than to put gas into them and have them checked. I had my oil changed and they gave me a list of things that I needed to have done to my car to include a print out of suggested maintenance.They seem to bend over backwards to help you maintain your vehicle and are reasonably priced. I would strongly recommend them.

Comment: I live near Detroit and my sons a student at WMU. My sons Jeep lost brake pressure late in the afternoon. A front brake hose had a slice in it and wasnt holding fluid. We knew we needed a hose for sure. He brought it to Tuffy in Kalamazoo. Chris did a complete inspection, and told me what needs work, what should be done, and what needs to be done soon, and what needs to be done ASAP to make the car safe. He did a great job at a fair price. Honesty is worth more than that. We will make Chris and his shop at Tuffy our defacto shop in Kzoo, and recommend to all our families in this area whose kids go to school at Western and Kalamazoo College.

Comment: I had a great experience with Tuffy! I went in for an oil change. It was so great to see Rick out in the Lobby interacting with the customers, answering all kinds of questions that that had. This is a female friendly auto shop. I know nothing about cars and they explained everything to me in language that I could understand and they did not make me feel incompetent for not knowing anything about cars. I will definitely be back again and again!!

Comment: Tuffy has saved my butt more than once while on the road. From running over a huge construction connector that stuck in my tire to thinking I needed a front end alignment and finding out I had a broken tyerod. They are honest and trustworthy and a great place for a woman to go to and not get ripped off. I highly reccomend them!!!

Comment: Rick gave me a great advice on my problem and sold me only what I needed. I now have my oil changed there as well so they can watch for other emerging issues. I could not do that with the quick change place I was using.

Comment: Rick and his Tuffy Crew were very professional to help my daughter from having her brakes replaced to the oil change... her head lights were in need of repair and adjusting and I along with her feel much more comfortable when she drives her vehicle at night. Thanks again Tuffy!
