“Always have a good experience at Lorain Tuffy. Staff is friendly and often offer me a ride home while my vehicle is being worked on.”

“What a great experience! Will picked up the phone immediately and recommended a time for me to bring the car for an oil change. I was out of state and needed to wait for the car. I drove my car to Broadway and my car was taken inside for the oil change immediately. Will told me what was covered with the oil change. He was also able to give me an estimate to repair the motor on my moon roof, saving me money on a quote given to me by the dealer. He explained that I would need to leave the car for the day. If the weather was bad, Tuffy’s could probably help me out with a ride. He was so knowledgeable about changing spark plugs, too. Fair prices. Intelligent mechanics. Superior service. Thank you.”

“I have been a loyal client with Rusty & his mechanics for over 20 years & always recommend to friends & family alike to go in with any & all problems. The guys have handled over these many years in my several vehicles everything from simple diagnostics to a complete engine replacement. They know me by name & my vehicle from bumper to bumper. The expertise they provide & the knowledge they have makes them stand out far ahead of the competition. Pricing on labor is good & they do their best to save you on parts but never at expense of quality. So, if you are looking for the best place to have work done on your vehicle, look no further than Rusty & the mechanics at the Tuffy in Lorain.”
