    “I cannot say enough about how thankful I am. Dan was so nice and helpful with my vehicle. I have no clue about anything when it comes to vehicles and I felt very confident and safe taking my vehicle to Taffy. I did not feel like I was getting taken advantage of being a woman. I will make sure and tell everyone about Taffy. And I will definitely be back!!”

    “TUFFYS auto shop in Fenton, MI had amazing service! My wife, brother, his fiancé, and I were all traveling to Michigan from North Carolina to see family because my grandfather had passed away. It was about 7:20 in the morning right before they opened. My car started acting up, and luckily it broke down in Fenton, near a auto store. I give Tuffys 5 stars for many reasons. We told them our story, and they got us in right away, did everything they could to help us in a timely manner, with amazing service. I recommend this place to anyone!! We are all now back home with our car fixed! ”

    “If I could rate this car repair a 10+ I would. I really needed repairs on my car and was not sure where I should go. When I called Chad, manager, he did not hesitate, but told me to come up as soon as I could, and this was on a very busy day. Chad was able to let me know exactly what was needed for my car. He informed me, as the repairs continued, of any issues that occurred. Sorry but I forgot the mechanic's name, but he was also so helpful, showing me what was happening with the repair. I do not know much about car repair, but I know that I have found my new repair shop. Chad made me feel welcome. Even the staff from the oil repair shop next door, were friendly and welcoming. I would recommend Tuffy in Fenton to anyone who needed car care. Thanks again Chad! ”

    “There is nothing more important to Tuffy than your safety. With this in mind, I would only trust Tuffy to handle my brake work. Tuffy will provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones to make sure the job is done right the first time. The crew at Tuffy are hard-working, dependable and knowledgeable. It’s their commitment to exceeding customer expectations always! I give Tuffy and it’s crew my highest endorsement possible! Don’t even bother to look elsewhere!”

    “I read some reviews before I went to the Fenton store and they did not lie. Chad's customer service is 5 stars! I walked into the shop feeling stressed because the front end on my Ford Escape felt unsafe to drive after I had made a turn and heard a metallic klunk. I knew something was very wrong and Chad and their team looked into the problem while I was there and assured me that it would be fixed the very next day. AND it wasn't just me that Chad was kind and professional with, it was everyone that called and walked in. Thank you for fixing my vehicle, charging me a fair price, and making me feel better than I did when I came in. You ROCK! ”

    “I came in the afternoon of July 3rd with windshield wipers that did not work. Although they were very busy, Chad said he had to take care of me that day, because I could not be without wipers for several days. He found the part, had it delivered and and installed it before the end of the day. They have always gone out of their way to service my vehicles in a timely manner. I would never hesitate to recommend them.”

    “Chad, Tony and Bill are the absolute best! Tony is stuck with me for life at this point, I don't think I'll ever be going to any other auto repair shop, because of how real he is and the quality of work he does! Thanks again, best customer service in Michigan, and I hear amazing things about how great the mechanics are, and have first hand experienced what great work they do! Don't forget treats for Chad! He deserves some ”

    “Chad and Tony are absolutely amazing! I am a new comer to Tuffy, and the men took such great care of me, that I'm never going to any other auto repair shop ever again. They didn't try to oversell me on a thing, I took the initiative to ask Tony what else could be wrong, and he told me he thought I needed less repairs than I actually thought I needed. Then told me to come see him when I'm ready. The few times I've been here, it's been quite a family like atmosphere, Chad is definitely the life of the party! I've never been to any service shop as great as this location! Thanks soooo much men, I'll definitely be seeing ya more often! Maybe even before my car breaks down next time! Bill deserves a shout out too! Thank you again for everything. Next time I'll bring some treats, promise!”

    “I was so blessed by the staff and service at Tuffy Auto in Fenton! From the time I walked through the door, I was greeted warmly and waited on immediately. Gratefully, they were able to deal with my concern on the spot, which happened to be a simple fix and without charge! I was grateful also for a heads' up to an unnoticed oil leak, which they topped off before I left, and encouraged me to have someone take a look at it soon. They also took the time to give me a written estimate of the problem and cost should I not have another mechanic who could repair it for me. A week later I had it repaired there, choosing to wait in their comfortable lounge (hot coffee, fresh cookies and wifi! Yay!) There was a steady flow of needs and emergencies; new and repeat customers. Each one greeted as warmly and courteously as I had been, and their issues resolved by experienced mechanics; many even that same day! I would highly recommend calling Chad at Fenton Tuffy for qualified, experienced, friendly service and repair of your vehicle! Satisfaction and genuine concern for your need are very much a part of their service as I watched them resolve multiple issues in a timely fashion. You won't regret choosing Fenton Tuffy Auto for your vehicle's care! ”

    “At the beginning of the year I had $1300 done on my car at Tuffy/Fenton. I called to see if the parts would be warrantied if I sold the car. The answer was yes. Thank you. I month ago, I went to Belle Tire/Fenton next door and had $1571 done on brakes. Besides getting a run around, and finding out NONE OF THEIR WORK is warrantied if I sell the car, 3 days after they worked on the car, it was drifting so bad I never went over 20mph for 4 days. I bought a new car because enough is enough. Thank you Tuffy, for standing behind your work. You all helped me take care of my 2002 Forester! I'll miss not seeing yall's...and Dan Bauer.”

    “I was towed here on the recommendation of Fenton Express Towing to figure out what was wrong with my Outback when suddenly stranded at a nearby Rest Stop. They had it figured out within 15 minutes, after giving me water and a doughnut, and since they didn't do clutch repairs, recommended Fenton-Holly Transmission and Gear. And they charged me NOTHING! They were so kind and their recommendation was super; had new clutch and was on my way within 24 hours. Amazing.”

    “I am new to the area and desperately needed to have my engine checked. I had been to the PDQ oil attached to the tuffy center and they sent me right over to tuffy. Even though it was bad news they did an amazing job and did their best to give me the bad news gently (I was prepared for the worst anyway). The service was great the guys were wonderful. I won't go any where else for my automotive needs. ”

    “The people are friendly and the service is efficient. I had my air conditioning in my car fixed, and finding a place with the right pipe for my not-so-new car took persistence making calls on the part of Tuffy. The recharge and installment of the new pipe all happened within 3 hours. The assistant manager, Dan, was especially helpful throughout the process. Highly recommended!”

    “I had my brakes inspected Saturday at a local Chrysler dealer. I was told they were like new. I noticed a Very bad grinding noise yesterday , 3 days later. I drive over 100 miles a day. I called in a panic and spoke to Chad the service manager. What a knowledgeable great guy. I went in at lunch noon , left by 130 brakes repaired for a great price and better warranty. I have never been to a Tuffy before and I'm new to this area. I do have an automotive background and can tell Chad is an honest man. Thank you very much for fixing my car so fast. I called the dealer yesterday still haven't heard anything from them. a couple hours after speaking to Chad I'm at home writing this review A++++++ ”

As far as the price for the work they did, I believe it was a fair price but I really didn't know. The majority of people that came in while I was waiting seemed to know Steve and trusted his work so I believe I did good.”

Honest people like these will always get my business. They worked on the prices of other repairs to help me out with other cars. Good people. It's about the people there not the name ruddy.”
