    “Actually I am not a customer but my 82 year-old mother is. I just want to thank you for taking care of her on more than one occasion with such great care and respect. There are not many businesses like yours anymore and I wanted to take the time to express my gratitude for being so kind to her when she comes in with a car problem. She ends up so happy and thankful that your team is so thoughtful and nice to her and never takes advantage of her when many places would. Thank you again! Your kindness and excellent business practices do not go unnoticed! ”

    “My son's spring break trip was saved by the amazing service we received at Tuffy on Miller Rd. In the Flint area. My son and I met in Flint for a flight out of Bishop Airport. When we met he mentioned on his way to Flint from Big Rapids where he attends FSU, his car was "chugging"... Not knowing the Flint area, I hit the "around me" button on my cell phone. We luckily ended up at the Tuffy's on Miller Rd, where we had the car coded and found the problem. The service was amazing, they worked the car in to see how bad the issue was (bad!) and then arranged to have me and my son driven to the airport to catch our flight and kept the car for repairs while we were on vacation. They were AWESOME! The car was fixed and waiting for us on our return and is running like a top! Thanks guys! I am so happy we lucked out and ended up at your Tuffy!”

    “I went to another shop because my car was over heating. The problem was fived but it reoccurred within 2 weeks. Come to find out my hose had been ripped out. A guy named Brian helped me with everything and got it under control. He told me that because Im a female who knows very little about cars most auto services will try the "okey-doke". He also gave me an discount just because of that. They're awesome!”

    “I was buying a new used car and I wanted to have it inspected before I purchased it. I took my car to another location and they told me some parts that needed to be fixed. I went on their website to look up their hours and noticed they had really bad reviews. One of the reviews suggested going to Tuffy. So I researched them and they had really good reviews. I ended taking my car to Tuffy and they were able to repair what needed to be repaired and were very friendly and helpful and took the time to explain what needed to be fixed. I had never been to Tuffy before, but I will continue to go there and will suggest Tuffy to anyone. ”

    “I was very satisfied with the service I received at Tuffy on Miller Rd. I came in because I felt like my tire was going to come off, one of the techs checked it out and informed me that all I had to do was hit one good pothole and my tire would be off. Definitely not a situation I would like to be in especially with my children in the car. They were able to get everything fixed and all set that very same day. I was able to get my car fixed before going to work. Friendly staff, accurate work, I think this will be my go to auto center. :)”

    “Store manager Bryan & mechanic Christopher stayed late to ensure my vehicle was in working order during the coldest day of 2015 (so far). I go to Tuffy Miller Rd because I don't have to worry about taking my Dad or husband to ensure that I don't get taken for a ride. These are honest people doing good work. Thanks guys!”

    “This place is very awesome. Their crew is very knowledgeable and experienced as well. There were a few times that ive taken my vehicle to a few different shops to be looked over and no one could tell me what the issue was. After bringing it to Tuffy, they were extremely quick and could tell me what the problem was after only a few minutes of inspection. They are pretty decent priced as well. The more in depth work you need, of course the higher the price, but every dime spent with this company is so worth it! ”

    “When my car broke down on I-75 on my way home from Detroit our tow truck driver recommended and took me to Tuffy on Pierson Rd rather than the garage that my road side assistance told me was closest. The men working at the desk and on my car were fantastic to say the least. They were unable to fix my car that day because they were already busy with other vehicles and it was near the end of business hours, however they did a general assessment and gave me a rough idea of what was wrong. They were honest and direct, which is rare these days. Above and beyond their work on my vehicle they directed me to a nice hotel where my children and I could stay the night as well as assisted me with finding transportation to the hotel and back again in the morning. I received a call the next morning with a status report on my vehicle. After repairing the problem that caused me to break down the mechanic checked a few other things to ensure we would make it all the way home safely and without any further trouble. I couldn't have asked for better service. I am very grateful we were taken to Tuffy! I would recommend this shop to anyone and everyone. Thanks!”

    “I was on my way to work and my truck threw the belt when a pulley froze, my friend recommended this Tuffy,I didn't even know they fixed problems like this, I was looking for anywhere. I "limped" my truck to this store, long story short the service was excellent and store Manger Bryan Wistuba was a great help. If I have future problems or repairs this is going to be my place.”

    “My hat goes off to Mr. Gilliam, Manager, and the whole team at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service. While on a trip with my family to visit relatives in Michigan, my car overheated on our return trip and stranded us on the highway. AAA provided us a lift to Tuffy's and it was the best part of the whole experience. As soon as we arrived by tow truck, Mr. Gilliam took care of us, from offering his truck if we needed to go anyway to making sure that our car got attention immediately to providing advice about the area. What very well could have been a nightmare of a return home turned into just an inconvenience due to Mr. Gilliam and his team. They were able to quickly diagnose the problem (thermostat and hole in the radiator), obtain the parts, and fix everything all within a couple of hours. Mr. Gilliam maintained constant contract with me, updating me with the problems and solution as my wife and young son ate lunch and walked around. Due to the dedication of Mr. Gilliam and his team, we were able to get back on the road and make it home to Virginia that same day as planned. On top of everything, a discount was applied to our bill as a final gesture of service. I cannot express enough the gratitude I have for this establishment and those that work at it. My only regret is that I do not live in the area to go to them time and time again for all of my car needs. Whether you live in the area or are passing through, I highly encourage you to take advantage of this shop and the high quality people that run it.”

    “When I was trying to purchase a used car I took it into this Tuffy Auto Center to have it evaluated. I received such great service I decided to start going there for oil changes on our three vehicles. Am so impressed with the HONESTY and caring about the customer. Clean, wholesome atmosphere.”

    “Great staff and great service! Fair and honest. Took my son's car in thinking the alternator was bad. Turns out the problem was a bad battery, not the alternator. They could have easily gone ahead and replaced the alternator and battery and I probably would never have figured out that I'd been scammed. However, they were honest and told me the truth. I ended up spending much less than I thought I would. This has happened more than once over the years I've gone there. This is why I keep coming back to these guys!”

Friendly staff and the more you get to know them the friendlier they become on future visits. Work has always been satisfactory. A few times they have gone above and beyond what I was expecting!”

    “Honest & Helpful! We were getting ready to leave on a long trip with my wife's truck and I needed a transmission flush...Tuffly was LESS than an hour from closing (the service takes about an hour)...I asked if it was still possible to get it done...not only did Mickey & Henry tell me they could do it...but they took the time to help me understand the process and showed me how dirty the trans fluid was. I'm not a "car guy"...but it was really cool, how they broke it down for me. They NEVER tried to take advantage of me...or sell me something I didn't need! I live quite a ways away from Flint, but because of the HONESTY & GREAT SERVICE of these guys, I will be back! I would highly recommend Tuffy on Miller Road! Thanks guys!!”

    “My truck was whipped & desperately needed new shocks. I asked Tuffy to check the undercarriage for rust and to let me know if they found anything that needed attention. I needed a power steering flush but was assured I did not need all the other hoses, fuel injector, etc that another garage had insisted were in desperate need of replacement (2-3 yrs ago). They were so nice and completed the work in a few short hours. I feel safe driving my truck now- something I haven't felt in a long time. They also fixed my AC that stopped blowing cold air without an additional charge. I am glad I have a reliable, trustworthy place to care for my truck. My Dad will be happy that I found a place that I don't need to drag him along to in order to get the best service. Thank you, Tuffy!”
