    “First timer using Tuffy. I must say the staff is great, 2 cars with issue gave me costs which were cheaper then other quotes. Quality work, great communication, and work was done when promised. Couldn't be happier with both jobs getting done as planned. Will gladly be passing the word to others I know if they need a good auto repair shop”
