Tuffy Lorain - Complete Automotive Repair and Tire Center

Tuffy Auto Lorain, same ownership since 1992!

Tired of the run-a-round with fly by night mom & pop shops? Are you really saving any money with these small independent shops that are here 1 day and gone the next?

We have been owned and operated since 1992 by the same owners -
Rusty & Missy Swetz and George & Gerry McKinney

We pride ourselves on employing A.S.E. Certified mechanics (Automotive Service Excellence Institute)
We are fully insured and.....we are here! 6 days a week. Not "Gone Fishin" or " Be back soon". We are an established business offering the Mom & Pop pricing at professional grade service.

At Tuffy, we do it all. Exhaust, brakes, steering & suspension. Electrical repairs from starters and alternators to blower motors and window motors.

Our engine diagnostics are performed competently, following strict certified flow charting. We subscribe to several Automotive Diagnostic Services which require a monthly fee. Not just a random Google search and hope and pray technique. We don't install parts at random hoping to cure your ills.

Next time you are in need of automotive service or repair, do yourself a favor and call us....FIRST! You will $ave in the long run, and have a dependable vehicle as the result.
