“I moved to Charlotte from Boston 4 years ago. I didn't know anyone or any businesses. I need help with my cars and drove into Tuffy's. I have never, ever been treated better. Everyone: Roger, Mike, Chastity, Arron, Kyle and ALL THE staff were immediately like family. I have only had exceptional service, 5 star everything!!!!, Professional, kind, informative, compassionate, knowledgeable, and simply amazing. I have referred everyone I know to them and I will continue to do so. I consider my self very, very lucky to have found such a great group of mechanics and body shop technicians that I trust! Thank you so very much, Arsley Tuffy's!!!!!”

“I was taking my mom to the airport after a lunch stop when my car wouldn't start. Thankfully I was right next door to Tuffy and the team there went far above and beyond for us. Not only did they quickly and professionally fix my car, they also drove my mother to the airport. I'm naturally distrustful of mechanics and they could easily have "taken me for a ride" saying I needed a lot of work done. Instead, they clearly explained everything and fixed what I needed during a stressful time. Extra big thanks to Douglas, Aaron, and Kyle. I will definitely be back and strongly recommend these guys!”

“I went to Tuffy on S. Tryon street on Monday, July the 26th, I must say that my encounter with Chastity was a blessing. She not only provided excellent customer service, but she was professional and respectful while doing so. I appreciate her kindness that she shared with me, and if I did not recently move to GA, then I would continue doing business with them. Thank you once again to Chastity Neal. When going through a stressful situation, we need more people like her. ”

“We went to the new location at 9800 S Tryon St Charlotte NC. We had an ongoing issue with our air conditioning, We took it to Tuffy's and it began to do the same thing after a few days. We went back and spoke to Roger. He told us exactly what the problem was and explained why it reoccurred. He took our car back and worked on it, he was able to fix the problem and saved us some money. Most of all he was honest and straightforward with us...we understand the next step if it happened again is that some parts will need to be replaced. He helped us out and was so kind. We are Roger fans and Tuffy fans forever.”

“What a great experience! Roger and his crew were so nice and personable. Made me feel like I was a family member bringing in a vehicle to get work done. Roger showed me the things that needed attention now, and the things that could wait. He helped me understand exactly what was being done. I also appreciated meeting Joyce and Chastity at the front desk. They were both super nice! ”

“I called to set up an oil change while I was at work, the young lady informed me that I did not need an appointment to come in when I got off of work. When I got there they took my information and they took my truck, and I was in and out in less than 15 maybe 20 minutes. They really treat you like family and they make you feel like a valued customer. I will definitely be back ”

“Absolutely awesome team at Tuffys Tryon St Charlotte. Second visit and still awesome. Greeted politely and timely. Smiling faces. Roger and all staff are very good and nice to all who came in to Tuffys. Fixed my car for very fair price. Explained to me all repairs needed and why. As a 73 yr old female very much appreciate their kindness and only spoke to me with respect. When I visit family in this area must go by and see the team whether I need repairs or not. Thank you so very much and will always reccomend Tuffys. God Bless.I can always trust that they will take care of me.”

“I was traveling with my children and my check engine light came on along with another light. I had several hundred miles to drive until I’d be home so I went in to get my car locked at before we got on the road. It was a busy morning, but I was worked in in a timely manner. My gas cap ended up not being on tight enough causing the lights on my car to light up. I wasn’t charged a thing and was back on the road. This was such a pleasant experience and I felt actually cared about. I highly recommend this shop.”

“OMG the most amazing thing just happened to me. I went to Tuffy and it looked busy. But I stopped in to set an appointment and get a price check to replace a missing tail light. Mike said, if you give me one second I will see if I can fix it right now. One second later, I popped my trunk and he had it fixed. SHOOK MY HAND AND SAID HAVE A GREAT DAY!! No payment! Just great neighborly service and a smile. I have not experienced this in years. My husband an I always complain that service and trust not longer exist in retail. THANKS MIKE FOR RESTORING OUR FAITH AND MAKING MY DAY!! Blessing to you!!”

“People are quick to complaint but never quick to take a minute to recognize and appreciate the people that provide exquisite service. There is a member at this location by the name of Scott who helped me every step of the way. I highly recommend going to tuffys not only for their services but because people like Scott go the extra mile to genuinely help anyone in need. Thank you tuffys automotive and more importantly thank you Scott for extending a helping hand anyway you could and I greatly appreciate that”

“most friendliest, efficient and helpful service location I've ever dealt with...they are conveniently located, will drive you back home, and pick you up when your repairs are completed and work within your schedule, as well as theirs; out of a rating of 1 to 10 I would give them an 11. ”

“Mike,Owner and Scott, Manager are delightful to work with, outstanding customer service. Tuffy quickly diagnosed my car problem and Roger called to let me know what the problem was. He took the time to explain the problem and even looked at ways I could potentially save some money. Unheard of in my opinion. It took approximately 3 hours to repair my car. They offered me transportation because I lived close by. So greatly appreciated that benefit. Nothing worse than having to wait on car repairs. Today’s experience was nothing but exceptional. Definitely going back and would highly recommend this location. Job well done!!”

“Service was awesome! It all started for me when I put in a request for a quick quote. I submitted it later in the evening. To my surprise, I received a reply from Mike fairly quick. I wanted a catback system installed. Explained to him what I had and received a quote. I was sold just on the fact he actually responded. Had the work done today and I am very pleased to say the least. I didn’t get to meet Mike in person but, thanks for your help! Will definitely be coming to you guys again.”

“I was referred to Tuffy by a local tire shop in the area. When I walked into the shop I was greeted with a smile and helped right away by Scott Brennan ( Not sure if that the correct spelling of last name) He was very knowledgeable and so easy to work with. Thanks Scott for a great visit. ”


Dec 14, 2018 – PAW CREEK, NC

“After running into owner (Michael) at a gas station, he provided business card and simply asked me to give Tuffy a try. Wow, I am so glad I did! I took my Lexus in (drop-off) for an alignment and they (Roger) did an amazing job. They were also able to give me an incredible deal on some replacement tires which I gladly accepted. Additionally Michael himself provided an extra courtesy call to provide updates of progress. This is what business should be; trusting, professional, knowledgeable and overflowing with top-notch customer service. Tuffy has certainly earned my business as well as those within my circle as I will recommend Tuffy for automotive service needs.”

“I got to work just now and have an indicator light on the dash saying O/D OFF. What? My Kia Soul books says this indicates that the OD SYSTEM is deactivated. What? I called Tuffy and spoke with Scott. There is a button on the stick (that you never know is there until this happens) that I pushed without knowing it. Thanks Scott for saving me a trip!”

“I never thought that the dread I used to feel when I had to bring my car in for service would ever go away. Most often than not, when you bring your car in to be serviced there's always a huge possibility that the problem is never fully resolved. But this is not the case with Tuffy. I first brought my car in for a brake issue about 2 years ago and I never had a problem with my brakes again. The team is courteous, knowledable and good at what they do. They don't recommend a bunch of unnecessary repairs and what repairs that are needed are done right the first time. I must say that my car is 10 years old and it performs just as well as it did when I first purchased it 9 years ago and I like to think the team at Tuffy has a lot to do with that.”

“after i had wrote my review this morning. I received an call from Mike the owner. He apologized for the the confusion then he explained to me that i came in at an really busy time this morning and that they where low staffed until 9am. So then he offered to do my alignment for free. WOW i had those guys all wrong. They were respectful and helpful and patient. So im here to say that i was way off base totally, very good service very good people that does the job right.”

“Mike and his service guys are awesome. We first met Mike when he started working at the Tuffy in Indian Land, SC. When he moved to the South Tryon location we continued to go to location in Indian Land (now that Mike is gone from there I wouldn’t recommend them to my worst enemy) Mike and Roger treated my mom and I as human beings, and we felt 100% confident in what they were telling us was the truth! We will continue to make the further drive to see Mike, we cannot thank him enough!”

“I would highly recommend coming to this Tuff to everyone. Thank you Tuff of Aryrsley you saved me most likely a $300 trip to the VW dealership. I brought my car in for an oil change and have them check my engine light. They check the codes and came back to me not only telling me the code but explaining what they all meaned. The code were exactly what I had replaced at the VW dealership. The employees at Tuff explained to me that the check engine light may have come on since the part replaced by the dealership was directly related to the oil pressure. Thank you once again!! :))) I will be back and be telling everyone I know to bring their cars to you ”

“I have taken my car there many times and they always offer great service at a fair price. Today they saved me $300 by being able to reuse my spark plug wires even though they were changing 12 plugs that had not been changed in years. They could have told me that they were required to be changed, but they didn't. I really trust these guys.”
