“I got my oil changed and used a coupon and saved me money. the service was good and quick. Also brought to my attention were a few things needed to be addressed too. Thanks Tuffy!”

“I was ripe to be screwed, 40 miles from home, had to pull off the tollway because my car was overheating. But the guys at Tuffys treated me right. They were honest, a 13 year old car with 143K miles on it. They told me straight up, it was either a major repair costing a few hundred or I might need a new engine block costing a few thousand. I thanked them for their honesty. They gave me a few tips on how to safely get myself home. Time for a new car. I don’t live anywhere near there, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to go there again. Two very pleasant gentlemen!”

“I have never had a negative experience at Tuffy. Ron and the entire team including the mechanics are very thorough and will not nickel and dime you. There are very honest and provide the best service. I recommend Tuffy for all your car needs.”

“I have been taking my 2014 Honda to Tuffy since 2015. Amin and the rest of the team is very professional. I just had my car in for an oil change and new front brakes. Amin was honest and doesn’t charge you an arm and a leg for services. They will continue to be getting my business. I recommend them to those looking for a regular mechanic.”

“I get it, going to the mechanic is scary and you're taking a leap of faith hoping whatever needed for your car is as reasonably priced and as fast as possible. Tuffy is definitely a trustworthy place to go, I've had a couple repairs here and the guys are honest, they never try to upsell you and will even tell you if a repair is worth the price/if they think it's a good or bad idea. I had to go in a couple weeks ago to get my master cylinder fixed, with the price quoted/online coupon (seriously, use their coupons) I paid lower than the average quoted price for the repair. Obviously your mileage may vary (no pun intended) but these guys are the real deal. I have to get a new axle/oil change soon and they're gonna be the first guys I go to. ”

“I have an 2002 Toyota that I have been a customer since 2008. They do great work, but most importantly, they don't nickle and dime you to death.”

“The coupons and convenient location drew me in; at the end of the day, I'm glad I did. The crew are very proficient, with a good warranty; I think my car was in good hands and I plan to continue taking it there.”

“I took a chance on Tuffy's after looking for somewhere to get the oil changed on my vehicle. I requested a quote online and got an email back within a few hours explaining that they needed further information before giving me the correct quote when I called the following day they were amazing on the phone. I made the appointment and they were prompt and even not having the part there got me out in just about an hour. I paid a lot less for the same oil change that would have gotten where I was used to going. Tuffy's is where I'm going to go from now on, excellent Service Great customer service great prices they are a number one in my book.”

“Just wanted to thank you for not only taking excellent care of my F-150 Truck (Ed’s Sable too), but also for graciously permitting me to put a brochure and business card display in the reception area of your shop. Ron you are the best! You too Wahin! When we moved to our current home 9 years ago, we were hoping to find a good repair shop. We happened to try out Tuffy under the previous owner one day. The service and the manager were excellent. The shop eventually was sold to Ron and he has continued the tradition of excellence in service. I’m also going to give you some free advertising on the Business Affiliates Page of my website by putting your Logo there. When someone clicks on it, they will be taken immediately to your website. Another way to thank you for years of good service. Check it out at: www.newdaypcs.org”

“I took a chance on getting in for an oil change without an appointment when they opened. The owner welcomed me in and was very accommodating. Even with having to get a part delivered for my car I was told two hours and they had me on my way in under two hours. I would highly recommend this shop for all your car repairs. I know they have gained another customer in myself.”

“When Dan, at Tom's Service in Wheaton, retired, I was hoping to find another trustworthy car repair business to take care of my Ford Explorer. After a while, checking on similar businesses in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Carol Stream, and Glendale Heights I came across Tuffy Tire & Auto Service at 1153 Bloomingdale Rd., Glendale Heights. The manager, Mr. Amin Wahdan, gave me a quote for needed repairs after the oil was changed and the seasonal check-up was performed. Mr. Wahdan was not only helpful, but he also provided me with good options, reasonable prices, discounts that saved me over $100.00 dollars, and truly listened to my doubt and concerns. It is sometimes difficult for a woman to get good car service, let alone not risking being taken advantage when requesting car service. However, I am a woman of faith, and I was prompted to take a leap of faith at Tuffy's. I'm delighted to share with family, friends, and anyone who asks for great car repairs that Tuffy at 1153 Bloomingdale Rd., Glendale Heights is the perfect place! They not only provided me with professional assistance, but the repairs to my Explorer were excellently done, on time, and they also provided a Warranty on all the parts and labor which exceeded my expectations! Thank you so much to Ross, Amin, and Al for your professionalism! Sincerely, Mafalda Novella ”

“I returned to Tuffy Auto Center in Glendale Heights, IL, for the second time to get the remainder of my repair work done on my 2007 Nissan Altima, on Saturday 3/17/18. Once again, Ron Murnieks, owner, took very good care of me, and did the repair work that he had pointed out on my last visit with an estimate. It was done by days’ end as promised. All went well, and he saved me some money with his coupon discount and another added discount on re-alignment. I will return to his Tuffy Auto Service center as needed, and whenever my wife’s car needs any extensive service. Thanks again for doing a fine job!”

“I was referred to Tuffy’s in Glendale Heights, IL to have repair work done on my car by a family member. I was told of the good quality repair work that this auto repair center did, and the reasonable prices they charged. Plus they offered additional discount coupons. I brought my car in for the repair and was not only treated in a professional manner, but it was done correctly and on time with the assurance of a warrantee on the parts and labor. It exceeded my first time expectations, and I will be returning to this location to have further work done in the future and also have my wife’s car repair work done there as well. They have gained my trust and also gained new customers. I am very pleased”

“The manager Bob is a thief. Very shady, don’t trust him.”

“We discovered Tuffy's when we lived in Carol Stream when they opened the Glendale Heights location. The service is great as well as very competitively priced. We've had two cars serviced there and Ron and his staff are the best! We now have a brand new car that is fully under warranty but once I need to start getting oil changes on the new car, Ron and Tuffy's will be where I go!”

“The shop manager did such a great job explaining the issues with my brakes during my visit to your location. I was very impressed that the shop owner was spending so much time with the customers. Thanks for offering the zero percent financing. What a lifesaver! Thanks Tuffy. ”

“On Monday, 11-11-13, I brought my car to Tuffy Auto Service at 1153 Bloomingdale road in Glendale Heights Illinois. My car had failed the state emissions test. I talked with a Tuffy technician and he reassured me that they could fix my car. In all my years I have never been treated with such courtesy and respect by a mechanic. They fixed my car and it hasn't run this good in years. In the future, I will not go anywhere but Tuffy’s for any automotive repairs and will recommend them to everyone I talk to! Thank you.”
