    “2014 Chevy Cruze 1.8L (from hell) with 113,000 miles had NEVER been in time since brand brew...multiple codes, rattling at start up, locked at 23.4 mpg...NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY fixed any of it until AL at Tuffy's dug into it and undid the damage 251 Auto did to it buy removing the rubber gasket and using grey RTV sealant on the valve cover...which liquefied and clogged all the timing passageways. Took three total times (not their fault) but this this is FINALLY fixed! Thing runs like brand new, no more rattle or codes....and done RIGHT! Also, everybody was so polite and personable...Will definitely be in for anything else in the future. Thanks, Tuffy! ”

    “Once again TUFFY LOVES PARK (Rockford) comes through. We are going up to Wisconsin for a few days and worried about the slight drip of oil on the floor of the garage. Ken quickly diagnosed it as a rear seal and, while not an immediate emergency, quoted us to get it done. Meanwhile he topped off the oil and mounted the hubcaps for free. I always tell them if it's something we need, do it. We got new wiper blades and the car was ready same day. Thanks to Jim, Ken, Sue, and Doug. Also want to mention Josh who is a gentleman to our whole family.”

    “I have been going to Tuffys for years now. My last visit was by far the best experience I have ever received. The employee who did the oil change on my car, Jeremiah D. went above and beyond. He also clearly explained what other issues I may be having due to my thermostat not blowing air properly on both sides. He’s a very friendly guy and a great asset to the team! I will definitely be coming back! Thanks Jeremiah!”

    “What a great experience I had with Tuffy Auto Service! I was able to talk directly to the owner and manager, Jim who got my car in right away and serviced on the day that it needed repaired. I was even able to get financing where I didn't have to pay up front and got started on a monthly payment plan. Everyone was so professional and friendly too. I feel like I have finally found an auto mechanic that I can trust. Thank you Jim, for letting Jesus Christ shine through you and your business!”

    “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!! ”

    “ Superior service! was able to get an appointment very next day that I called. Due to the Covid-19 virus they followed the safety procedures and provided me with a ride home so that I would not have to wait in facility all day, The brought me back to the facility and informed me that they needed to keep my car for further diagnostics until following day and provided me with a loan car so that I wold not have to disrupt my work schedule, Their services are affordable and excellent. II had been taking my car to the dealership, but they were not able to provide me with my own transportation which is very important as a single working woman. I will be returning for future automotive needs. Thanks to all the service team! ”

    “Above average service, quality and integrity, and i have high standards. Jim runs a great shop and they are friendly (full disclosure: I knew the owner personally before). I've been using this shop for all my car maintenance & repairs for years on all 3 of my cars. They don't rush, but take time to do the job right. What i like best is how they stand behind their work; if something goes wrong or a part fails during warranty, they fix it, without charge. They do their best to accommodate your schedule, and often a loaner is available for lengthy repair work, or they will give you a ride. I strongly recommend them.”

Major repairs and I couldn't drive my car home. They took me out and under my car to SHOW me the problem! They actually took the part off the car and went to their supplier after getting the wrong part in twice! They gave me a loaner and have an awesome payment plan.

They have also taken the vehicle back in and check it a second time when something just didn't seem right after a job. And they enjoy having and are accepting of our three young children when we have had to bring them with us for a "sit and wait for it" job. WE LOVE TUFFY!!!”

    “The initial phone call brought me in, Jim had excellent customer service and did his best when answering my questions. Major points for bringing the customer into the store. I had my work done on Saturday, I was recommended to bring my car in first thing due to how busy Saturday's tend to be, the waiting wasn't an issue the work had to be done this weekend. Justin handled my vehicle, and was VERY knowledgeable about every little detail and answered all of my questions I had. I really appreciated his help through my visit there. I plan to come back and request Justin to work on my vehicle with the other issues I would like to get worked on my vehicle, along with routine oil changes. The only small issue I had was a fuse blew sometime after installing the new battery, I feel like this could have been checked prior to me leaving with the vehicle, Not a big deal though. Only reason not a 5-star rating. I considered going across the street to Velasquez prior to going to Tuffy, I'm glad I made the choice of going to Tuffy. ”

    “I first tried Tuffys back in December 2016. My 2004 Mazda 6 basically blew up. They made it like new, I get 22mpg in the city. It seemed (and stll does) like new. Fast forward to this week. My car became possessed. Turn signals, fog lights? The windshield wipers started running. Again a terrific experience. From shuttle service to repair. Thanks!”

    “My infiniti qx4 had the check engine light on. It turned out that it was overdue for a tune up. They replaced the coil packs with new parts and the vehicle now performs much better. One part came in obviously used, they told me they won't use it and will wait another day to get a new part. They have integrity and do great work.”

    “Ladies of Rockford Loves Park and surrounding areas this is where you can go to have your car inspected for free and repaired knowing that they have been honest with you. Today there was a horrible noise in my car they inspected it for free told me exactly what it was and then further told me they inspected a couple of other things and that my battery had a dead cell which in this weather is a lifesaver they told me to go where I bought my battery though and have it replaced for free where my warranty was instead of them how's that for honesty. I was able to drop my car with them receive a courtesy ride back to my job then told I owe them nothing for my wonderful customer service today... I highly recommend them to you gentlemen as well!”

They received me very well, and although busy, checked out my car, giving me a written estimate for repairs. They assured me that I could continue to travel with precaution. The car has since been repaired and runs great. Their waiting room with free Wi-Fi is comfortable and convenient, and their other conveniences appreciated. I give a hearty recommendation to this shop which treats people right and knows cars well. ”

    “I was looking for a reliable mechanic to work on my vehicle because the place where I was taking my old vehicle gave me the run around about having to do things to my vehicle that was not necessary. Needless to say I didn't do what they told me had to be done, however what I did do was I took in an itemized list of 3 specific things that needed to be done to my vehicle and the mechanic at Tuffy's looked at my list and said "I will look over your vehicle at these specific things" the mechanic came back to me and said "these things do not need to be done" and he proved it to me by taking me out to my vehicle and explaining it to me. I will continue my business at Tuffy's because they are so very honest with me every time.”

To be honest, I find Tuffy's mechanics more knowledgeable and professional than my former mechanic's workers. It is a great feeling to know Tuffy is there right around the corner and knowing my car is in good capable hand of professionals regardless the issues. Keep up the good works in the garage guys.

    “I've been taking my vehicle to Tuffy on Riverside for more than 2 years. I wish I would have known about them sooner! Jim and his crew are very kind, helpful, and most importantly, knowledgeable when it comes to automotive needs. They provide a shuttle service if needed; and for more lengthy repairs, they will provide a loaner car free of charge. They are one of the busiest mechanic shops in the area, so sometimes the wait is longer than what I'd want or expect; but in all, the service provided is worth the wait. From my personal research, their repair costs are very competitive and even less than the competition. If you have any mechanical needs for your vehicle, take it to Tuffy; you won't be sorry. And if time is an issue, call first and make an appointment. They'll take good care of you!”

They did a great job of identifying things that needed to be fixed on my SUV and not once did I feel any pressure from them to fix any of things they brought to my attention. I appreciated being taken to my SUV while still on the rack and shown first hand the problem areas. And thanks for the free shuttle service, really came in handy when there is only one car in the family. Great job guys! ”

Once Tuffy's learned of the problem I was having with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) on my Honda, everyone at Tuffy's, especially Jim and Justin, went above and beyond in isolating and fixing the problem. They went so far as to not even charging me for the bad sensor they had to replace. They did everything they could to make sure the problem was fixed and that I was happy. Just want to say thanks to them for going above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied.”

This time I had tires put on and in the process of changing the tires they broke a Tire Pressure Monitor on one of the wheels. They had to wait to get another one to finish. The next day the Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) warning light came on and stayed on. According to my owner's manual this has to be checked out immediately so now I have to take my car to the Honda dealer to find out what's wrong.”

They were quick and professional. Helped me with everything I needed. They offered me great prices for great work. Worth every penny. When my second car needed to be in the shop at the same time they were quick and concerned that I had a car done asap! Will always come to Tuffy's when I need stuff done. ”

    “Last April, I moved from Memphis, Tennessee to Loves Park. Noticing all the good reviews, my first oil change here was at Tuffy's. Friendly staff and quick service were appreciated. But it was in November that they really came through for me... my car seized on I-90 one evening. I had it towed to Tuffy's and called them to explain about my after-hours drop off. I have no other vehicle, so speed of service was key. Not only did they get the parts needed to repair it THAT SAME DAY, but they also did a bumper to bumper inspection to make sure my vehicle was ready for its first brutal winter here. I expected to pay for the belt replacement (that caused car seizure), oil change, transmission flush, and alignment. When all was said and done, I was told I didn't need an alignment and could wait for the transmission flush if needed. Though I opted to service transmission anyway, I really appreciate that they didn't try to take advantage of a single woman who was new to area and was offering upfront to pay for more work than was needed. It would've been SO EASY for them to do that, but they didn't. They've earned my trust and loyalty, that's for sure. If I had to choose one word to describe (my impression of) their business culture, it would be "integrity". Go to Tuffy's. You won't be sorry. Integrity.”

I "lost" a large part of my exhaust system while pulling onto Tuffy's street. Every single person I met in this shop was wonderful to this crying, shaking mess. They picked up my errant part, looked over what the other shop had given me, told me they would beat the other quote, offered me a loaner car, and then gave me a chocolate chip cookie (because chocolate helps make so much better!).

Actually, my compressor exploded, sending lots of shrapnel into the evaporator system. The technicians flushed my system out 6 - 7 times, but were still getting particles. Decided it would be wise to replace the evaporator as well. I am so happy they take time and pay attention to all details of my repair. And, by the way, they also noticed the light bulb was burned out on my license plate. I won't take my vehicles any where else. Great personalized service and they truly care about their customers. ”

On Monday morning I received a call telling me that it would cost over $1,400 dollars to replace it. So I called Tuffys in Rockford. They had the Traverse towed to their facility and replaced the alternator for $733 ...including the tow!! Honest and fast. You can tell the integrity of a company by how they treat you when you are not from the area. These guys could have taken advantage of us but instead treated us fairly. If you are in the Rockford area I would highly recommend them. Their work also carries a nationwide guarantee. ”

    “I wish to describe my great satisfaction with the services provided by the Tuffy Auto Service Center. As a single female, I have unfortunately learned to be very skeptical of the things told me by automotive mechanics, particularly at service centers the size of Tuffy’s. The first time I brought my vehicle to Tuffy for maintenance, I was as cynical, snippy, and closed-minded as I possibly could be. Despite my intentionally rude behavior, the entire staff at Tuffy remained pleasant and helpful. They took the time to explain every procedure to me, including showing me the specific parts on my vehicle – without being condescending to me. What’s more, the skilled technicians at Tuffy’s were able to fix a problem with my vehicle that my neither my previous mechanic nor the dealership itself was able to fix! When the services were completed, the price for all work was the least expensive I have ever paid in Rockford – and this, for a level of expertise, friendliness, and common sense that I have yet to find with any other automotive center. In addition, the waiting room provides a counter with snack cakes, fresh coffee, books and magazines, free WiFi (including a computer!), and television – they even offered me the remote control to the TV! I am completely satisfied with the work done at the Tuffy Auto Service Center. If you are reading this because you are looking for a trustworthy automotive center, I recommend the garage and technicians at Tuffy without reservation. ”

    “I'm very careful about where I bring my car for service. I also do some repairs on my own. I needed my rear brakes done, and bought the parts to complete the job, but the weather prevented me from doing them. So, I brought my vehicle to Tuffy's. Jim treated me very professionally and stated "we are happy to have whatever work you don't want or can't complete on your own." They took the pads and rotors and had my brakes done in less than an hour, on a Saturday! Turns out they do better brake work than my dealer does. The dealer was installing brake parts without proper lubrication. Tuffy's did it right! Great lounge area with coffee, tea, and snacks. Also, in speaking with customers in the waiting area, I discovered they are all repeat customers. I think that sums it up well. ”

    “Outstanding from beginning to end. This place doesn't just repair cars, they really take care you! My Land Rover left me stranded about 90 miles from home. I wasn't familiar with any repair options in the area but found Tuffy's on my smart phone and called. I called them to get a feel for what they knew about Land Rovers and after the friendly and intelligent discussion felt comfortable taking a chance with them and had the tow truck take it there. The driver of the tow truck was local and he said I would be in good hands and was he ever right. While waiting for the diagnosis I observed how thoroughly and gently the owner reviewed repair options and recommendations with other customers in the waiting area without any pressure on them just to make sure they understood and were comfortable with what was to be done. Anyway, they quickly and expertly diagnosed the problem with a crank sensor on my vehicle and that's just where the great care and service began. They went out of their way to make sure I could find a rental car which happened to be very difficult as the buisness day was ending. The owner arranged for my transportation to the car rental agency and after they witnessed the rude treatment I received by the agency I found out they contacted the manager the next day on my behalf resulting in a full refund of my rental fee. And of course my truck was repaired as promised early the next day at a very fair and reasonable price. That's what I call taking care of their customers! As a service organization Tuffy's stands out like a light in the night in my book. If you want to deal with honest, intelligent people who know what they are doing and really care about you, go to Tuffy's.”

    “This past week I took my wife's car in to have some nails taken out of the rear tire, and upon inspection of the car, it was discovered that the wheel bearings were in a very dangerous condition. Jim took the time to explain the issue to me, why it was dangerous, and also took me to the shop to show me the issue on my car. I greatly appreciate his honesty and dedication to informing customers about why certain repairs are necessary and also making sure that the vehicles he works on are safe to operate. His inspection and dedication could have saved me and my wife from a very bad situation! HIGHLY RECOMMEND TUFFYS ON RIVERSIDE!!! To top it all of he advised on coupons that I could use and him as well as the staff is always very friendly! Thank you so much Jim and Team!!”
