“It is so hard to find an honest mechanic anymore. Especially local. Not with these guys. They make you feel right at home. They take their time to find the issue, explain how to solve the problem and then do a great job to get you back on the road safely. Very straight forward, very professional and super fast. I will definitely be a returning customer. Great job Tuffy team!!!!!”

“We were driving 2.5 hours from home and noticed a thumping noise in driver’s left front tire. The service tech drove it and looked at it- lugnuts were coming loose. They rushed it in after test drive and promptly fixed it! Thanks do much for your kindness and generosity! Could have been a bad situation! Nice to know there are good people and reputable places out there😊 Highly recommend Tuffy Marshall, Mi”

“On May 14, 2018, I pulled into Tuffy Tire and Auto Service at Marshall, MI. I was on my way to a conference in Detroit when my tire light came on and I was concerned about driving downtown with a tire issue. The Tuffy team helped me unload my car in order to check the spare and then helped me load back up again. They checked every tire and made sure each tire had the correct amount of air. They could find no damage to any tire so sent me on my way. I was certain that my tires were safe and that really gave me peace of mind. All of that service and there was NO CHARGE. Great service!”

“As a female with an older car, I'm used to talking with mechanics and not really being respected. HOWEVER-- the Marshall Tuffy staff were all polite and respectful and were willing to answer my questions in a way that I understood without being condescending. They took a HUGE worry off of my hands and got my not-so-wonderful car back up and running in less than 24 hours. I have no complaints, just a lot of appreciation for the way they took care of me and my car! Thanks guys!”

“John, Joe and the staff are AMAZING!!!! My Jeep broke down between Marshall and Jackson. Luckily we did a google search and found Tuffy to have an excellent rating so the tow truck took us there and John found a hole in my radiator and fixed it. We didn't get there until 4:30pm and he could have told me he didn't have time to fix it that late in the day, but he didn't. He stayed over and fixed it. Joe was so helpful and is great behind the desk. I would recommend and already have to all my friends. If I lived closer, I'd use them for all my auto repairs. ”

“Joe and the team at Marshall Tuffy are THE BEST !!! They explain things so that us non automotive people can understand. They DO NOT take advantage of their customers, which is something unheard of these day's. I have been literally SAVED by Tuffy on two seperate occassions and they ALWAYS beat any other quote I have obtained. I will NEVER waste my time getting quotes elsewhere when I can simply call Tuffy and know they will take care of me and my vehicles. It is not often you find service people you can implicity trust and I would recommend Tuffy of Marshall to ANYONE. GUYS YOU ARE AWESOME AND DESERVE MY BUSINESS !!!!!!!! I APPRECIATE YOUR SERVICE GREATLY.”

“Joe and his team really helped our family out today! We were driving home from visiting family in MI when we developed a small leak in a tire on our drive home to Pittsburgh. We by chance got off at the Marshall exit and pulled into Tuffy. Joe was quick to help us repair the tire and get us back on the road. Our car was loaded with our 2 small boys (7 months and a 2 year old) and our dog. He repaired the tire without any of us getting out of the car! We were back on the road in 10 minutes and Joe and his team turned what could have been a nightmare situation into a quick and reliable fix! Thanks Joe!!! ”

“My husband, granddaughter, and I were on our way to Kalamazoo for cattle show and the tire on the cattle trailer blew the tread and started getting hot. We pulled into Tuffy, they changed the tire immediately, and would not take any money. Their speediness and kindness were remarkable and I would recommend their business to anyone.”

“Came in to check a few rattles on my jeep and got an honest evaluation of necessary repairs. Left this place feeling good and that they were trying to make repeat customers and not just a sale. Fast forward a few weeks and unrelated issues cause my jeep to die on the highway. AAA asks who I want to tow to. Without hesitation I tell them Tuffy. These guys did a fantastic job chasing down the electrical issues that kept causing my jeep to stall out and provided me with a free loaner that saved me from having to get a rental. After long hours repairing my jeep I got a bill that didn't kill me but rather encouraged me to be a returning customer; they weren't ripping me off, instead giving me a killer deal on the repairs. It's nice to find mechanics who are honest, experienced, and fun to be around. While I don't hope to need any more repairs, I know where I'll be going if I do. Bottom line: Good people, good deals.”
