If I said this group of amazing mechanics were any less than lifesavers, I'd be lying. My mom and I are traveling, and noticed steam coming from the hood and that unique smell of coolant. Not being from the area, we had no clue where to go for quick and reliable service. A search of Google said we were close to Tuffy Auto Service. After a quick call and explanation, we headed over! After a quick chat with the man at the counter, not only did they promise to fit us in as quickly as possible, they were understanding about the 5 teacup chihuahua/min pin dogs that we had in tow. My dogs are NOT well civilized or socialized. We weren't there more than 5 minutes and the car was already being taken in to be checked. The repair ended up being a new radiator. WOW!!! What a thing to happen when you are traveling. While they were working on the repair, they were kind enough to let us use a courtesy car to complete the errands we needed to do. We are sooo thankful!! Doug had even fed my dogs a granola bar!!! How cute, sweet ,kind and thoughtful of him!!! On our way back, we stopped and got all the guys in the shop some donuts as a thank you. They got us in fast. They dealt with my very noisy dogs with patience and kindness, AND they completed the repair in record time!!! Under 3 hours from when we called for the WHOLE thing!!! If you need your car fixed, and want an awesome, reliable shop with a GREAT bunch of people, PLEASE PLEASE do yourself a favor and check out Tuffys. Btw, the car runs BEAUTIFULLY!! She's purring!!
