    “Everyone was very helpful and friendly when I took my vehicle into Tuffy for service. They explained in detail what was going on with my vehicle and were wonderful at answering any questions that I had for them. Also, if you need to wait for your vehicle while it is being serviced, the people who work there are very friendly and fun to be around. I will definitely be going back! ”

    “I’m from out of town but had a car issue on quick trip to Sturgis to visit family. Tuffy got me in on very short notice and diagnosed the problem within just a couple hours. I’m so grateful for the courteous, knowledgeable staff who gave me straight-up answers and peace of mind. ”

    “I took my truck in for an exhaust system and upon inspection of my vehicle other issues were brought to my attention. Not only did I get an exhaust system but new shocks and struts as well as the front end rebuilt. James and Dusty and the rest of the staff were amazing and hooked me up. Now I have no doubts my vehicle is safe for myself and my family. I will be going back in the future if other issues arise. Can't thank you enough.”

    “My wheel broke off while driving on 80 east. I am not from the area but the tow truck driver assured me Tuffy was the right place. He was right! What I liked most of all actually was the staff’s kindness and pleasantness. Great nice friendly people that really seem to care. Thanks so much. I drove 600 miles straight from there to my base Maryland with no problems. ”

    “James and the whole crew are some of the most accommodating and pleasant people I have ever run into in the car industry and ever. After a long day of being broken down on the side of the road, we were placed into the gracious hands of James and his crew. They allowed us to stay as long as we needed and provided us with many accommodations to make our day better. They got us back on the road as fast as they possibly could and I would love nothing more than to use James and his Tuffys crew exclusively for any car problems! If you guys see this, thank you and keep up the excellent customer service! ”

    “Employees are really nice, courteous. However, When James spoke to me, he said the car needed $4600 of repair. Old car. Not safe. Said cause was "lack of maintenance" and grease zirts needed attention. Leaking fluids everywhere. HOWEVER husband says that car doesn't have grease zirts, and when HE talked to James, got totally different story, $ estimate. Hmmm. You can draw your own conclusion. We will not be going back. ”

    “A fabulous team James, Dusty, Marcelino!!! The car had started making loud noises & exhaust fumes coming inside. The problem was quickly found & part replaced & repairs done. Also had oil change & checked everything was good before winter. Everything was explained plus cost. They even explained things for me about my car I didn’t realize how to use (no question is silly or dumb) thanks for the awesome work & making me feel like a valued person. ”

    “This was by far the best experience I have had with an auto shop. Very clean very friendly and reasonably priced. I was given a free estimate and had my car back on the road the next day. This was a well ran very organized shop. I highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for honest dependable mechanics. The integrity of the manager and staff as a whole was outstanding. I just wish they had an option to leave a 10 star review.”

I’ve had two cars repaired there in the past few weeks and each time the repair was simpler than originally quoted, meaning it cost me less in the long run.

    “Traveling home to Ohio from Chicago on the turnpike, the left front-wheel came off, at dusk. At the tow truck driver’s recommendation, I had him deliver the van to Tuffy’s door. The Tuffy staff started working on my crippled van as soon as they opened. They communicated with me at every step of the repair process from ordering the parts to what was being worked on next. The Tuffy staff is so friendly, professional, and competent that I felt like I was a member of their community. I was able to relax and trust that I was getting the best service possible. They kept me comfortable during the wait and offered a loaner vehicle in case I needed it. They had me on the road again in 5 ½ hours. I went home with a Nationwide Warranty on the repairs and safe ride. Thank you to all of the staff at Tuffy at Sturgis, MI. You made my day!”

I have always been happy with the quality of their work and the obvious depth of knowledge they have regarding all things automotive. John (owner) and James (Service Manager) and all of the mechanics working for them are definitely an asset that the Tuffy Corporate office should be aware of and acknowledge!”

There is no problem for them that can't solve with suspension, exhaust, engine, diagnostic and many more automotive problems at a fare price, timely manner and professional repair. I strongly recommend them for all technical automotive needs.”

    “I've always had my vehicles serviced at a different shop, but was starting to feel like maybe they were taking advantage of my lack of mechanical knowledge. I had met James prior, so I decided to take my company vehicle in to have it looked over. Come to find out, my original shop was right on, and the staff at Tuffy agreed with what all needed done. James and his team could have easily just bad-mouthed their competitor and tried to earn my business that way...but instead they were all nothing but honest and even spoke highly of the original shop where I had gone before.. Because of this, I will continue to service my company and personal vehicles at Tuffy in Sturgis. Thank you James & Lauren for your great customer service!”

    “These guys at Sturgis Township location are amazing, I was moving my family and our cat across the country and had car problems on the way. They spent their lunch time helping us out. They even allowed us to bring our cat inside to wait with us (she was leashed) and they gave us a box for her to hide in to make her feel safe. They found the problem in my car fixed it and sent us on our way! I am so thankful to them, they really went above and beyond!! ”

    “I can't begin to say enough about how great this shop is. My car is a bit of a problem child - over the past couple years, I got to know the staff fairly well. Taking the car in to the shop was never an unpleasant experience here - they are honest (they've never been afraid to tell me when I can hold off on a repair or there was nothing wrong) and extremely friendly. Each time I've been in, they've always brought me out to the shop floor to actually SHOW me what was going on with the car. I recently moved away from Sturgis, but the trust I was able to build with Tuffy in Sturgis has brought me back to the Tuffy shops here in Metro Detroit.”
