Big thank you to the guys at Tuffy in Lorain! I called on the 9th a day before I had to get new tags. Lucky me my check engine light came on the 8th. Will was so helpful! He told me to bring the car up then and was able to work with me on the price. I am so thankful for the employees at tuffys! Got the car done same day and was able to pass e check and get my tags. You guys rock!

Thank you for getting my SUV quiet again! My husband and I have been very pleased with your oil change service in the past, so I knew right away I would trust you when my muffler system cracked. I will be back soon for brakes and tires!

I can't believe how honest and friendly Will Arkan was. I brought my car for an alignment. He rotated the tires and called me back and said comenget the car that was all it needed. Here is the kicker. He didnt charge me a nickel. I heard these guys were great from two friends that is why I came here. And will come back!
