Tuffy Reviews

“I was in Perrysburg when my brake like broke. This was the closest place to go to, and I was nervous because I had never been there before. I usually go to the same person in my hometown. I felt these people were honest, and not too badly priced. My car was done in a reasonable amount of time, and everything felt great afterwards. I was pleased with their service and work. I’d go there again. ”

“I have been a Tuffy customer for several years now. They are thorough, conscientious and up front about every thing. Always just the facts. I do the simpler maintenance myself, fluids, brakes, belts, etc. and being (somewhat) mechanically inclined am of a generally skeptical nature. I never hesitate to take any of my vehicles here when the fix is over my head or the problem baffling. They deliver excellent work when they say they will - never a surprise, never a disappointment. Highly recommend the Perrysburg, Ohio Tuffy team.”

“These guys are simply the best. Competent and cordial, they will get you the services you need now, but also advise on what’s needed soon without the hard upsell you’ll find at most places. I’ve trusted Chris Gentle and his team with all of my routine maintenance for a number of years - and that routine maintenance has meant I’ve not needed any major repairs on any vehicle for more than 500,000 miles. These guys are great at what they do and thoroughly trustworthy.”

“So I was getting on the turnpike from Akron heading west towards Perrysburg. I noticed my brakes acting up causing my wheel to shake. I carefully drove out to Perrysburg. As soon as I got there I took it to Tuffy at about 1p.m. They close on at 4 p.m. on Saturdays but they stayed open till almost 5 to finish up my car because I had to return back east in the morning. Great service! ”

“The owner (Chris) was very friendly and helpful when I walked in, being a young girl I'm already intimated going into a auto repair shop, but they made me feel very welcomed! When I went to pick my car up (I believe his name is Mark) went into detail with what they did to my car and he even showed me how to check my oil and add more to it and installed new windshield wipers! I'll defiantly be coming back! ”

“Chris and the guys at the Perrysburg OH Tuffy were wonderful. They got my car in and ran the diagnostics the same day that I called. Then my car was ready less than 24 hours later. (ANd I have a vehicle that is hard to get parts for.) They not only gave me great service on my car, but someone gave me a ride home from the shop and came to pick me up when the car was ready as I did not have a ride. I highly recommend them and would definitely go back if/when needed.”

“I have a 2005 Ford Freestyle, and for the last several years, I've had numerous problems with the engine revving up and stalling at low speeds in hot weather. Unfortunately, the problem does not produce any meaningful error codes for the mechanics to use for diagnosis; therefore, the dealer repair shop and local repair shop I'd been using were unable to figure out the problem. I gave up and made sure to keep extra distance between my car and the cars around me when slowing to a stop or parking. Yesterday, my vehicle wouldn't start, and I was forced get it repaired. After my previous experiences with other repair shops, I decided I'd find a new repair shop when I needed any repairs, but I dreaded trying to find a new mechanic. I started with a yelp search that was not very helpful. I read a little online about how to find a good mechanic, and I stumbled upon the ASE's Blue Seal. I found that in the Perrysburg area, there are only 2 repair shops with an ASE Blue Seal. Being a little skeptical, I investigated to see if the ASE Blue Seal was just an expensive rubber stamp; I decided that wasn't the case because ASE certification is widely respected and the annual fee for a Blue Seal is only $65 (the first year fee is $235).Tuffy's website offers "free towing for some repairs". Vague offers like that make me leery, but when I called, Chris explained that they discount the towing fee, which is usually $65, by $15 for every $100 in repairs. That seemed reasonable to me.Diagnosing the problem took them 2 hours at $85/hour. Although replacing the alternator for about $400 including labor got my vehicle working, Chris gave me printouts detailing software updates for addressing the problems, so I could take the printouts to the dealership to get my engine's computer updated. Chris also explained that for $90, he could fix my hot-weather revving and stalling problem by cleaning the throttle body; however, the dealer has issued a recall allowing me to get that repair for free. Given that I've spent much more than $170 on repairs that didn't work, the diagnosis charge seemed reasonable to me, and the alternator replacement charge was simular to what I've paid for replacing the alternator on other vehicles.In conclusion, my experience with Tuffy in Perrysburg was one of my best experiences with mechanics. 2012-12-18 ”
