“I waited a few days to write this until I had a chance to take the car out on the road. My 1976 Cadillac Seville has never run better. The issues I was having with it were all corrected and fixed. I think this is a very good place to go for auto repairs. Robert Kravitz ”

“I have been a customer of Tiffy on Diversy for years as it is the closest shop to my home. I was sceptical and had some issues until the new management took over. The new regieme explains EVERYTHING before work is done. I am contacted via text or phone call before work is done. My car is clean when I pick it up. Thank you”

“I got a flat tire on Christmas and had to get back to work asap the next day. I pulled up to the shop without notice and these guys went out of their way to help me as fast as possible. So grateful for them and helping me feel safe making a 6 hour drive. Not the kind of service I was expecting in a big city, and kindness I won’t soon forget. ”

“I rolled into Chicago from Syracuse with an alarming clattering coming from under my car. A referral to Tuffy’s from a friend - “great customer service” - led my daughter to Tuffy’s the next day. Two quick screws later, a reassuring silence and “no charge” made for an even more grateful Thanksgiving. These guys reinforced my faith in mankind and I can’t recommend them more highly!”

“This is the second time I've taken my car to Tuffy for an oil change. The first time, they gave the car a lookover and found some fluids that needed topping off. They also cleaned my back brakes. The second time, they just did the oil change but also let me know that I would need some standard maintenance in about three months. I appreciate how quick the service was and how they always let me know how to keep my car in the best shape. ”

“I have never used Tuffy services before, but after my experience with them I will be more than happy to return for my auto needs. I received excellent customer service from the time I made my vehicle appointment to the time I picked up my vehicle. Once they completed my van, I took it home but was still having some issues. I returned my van the next day for the same problem. They took care of me immediately; they found the problem which was no fault of theirs and repaired it for me which I greatly appreciate. Thank you Jason and all the Tuffy crew on Diversey for getting me back on the road!”

“Every time I have gone into Tuffy they have been nothing but nice and extremely honest. They will tell you what you really need and not push you on something that is not completely needed.

“Admittedly, I don't know a lot about cars and appreciate that Tuffy is always honest and trustworthy regarding the needs of my car. They never try to sell me unnecessary repairs or look for issues with my car. Outside of the dealership, they are the only place I've ever gone for an oil change and been told that, all around, my car is in great shape. I appreciate that they are honest with me while also providing excellent service. ”

“I can't say enough good things about this place. Jason and his crew, they're honest and decent people. I was in a jam and needed my car mid-repair to take my kid to school - they allowed me to pick up my car and bring it back the next day. I offered to leave a credit card to ensure my return, they refused and said they hadn't done enough to charge me. This is why I like to support local business!!”

“Recently, I had my tires rotated at a local shop in the Chicago area. At that time they told me I needed new brake pads, shocks and struts. I wasn’t sure about their diagnosis on my vehicle so I decided to take my car to the Tuffy location at 1400 W. Diversey in Chicago. After dropping off my vehicle, Chris quickly called me to let me know that I in fact do NOT need to new brakes - I still have 75% life, and there are no signs that I need new shocks and struts. When I returned to Tuffy to pick up my car, Chris had one of his guys take me out so I could show them why I thought I needed shocks and struts. We went for a quick drive and the employee explained to me what I would feel and see when it was time for new shocks and struts. Chris could have had a big sale with me because I really don't know any different. I appreciate his integrity and providing me honest information about my car.”

“ I wanted to advise you of a top notch manager your company has at your Chicago (Southport & Diversey Avenue) location. I brought my SUV in with some questions about the exhaust that was recently replaced, unfortunately, by another repair shop. It was louder than normal. I stopped by on a Saturday and the manager came out and looked at it and explained to me the exhaust system on the car, and how he would look at it once he got it up in the shop. Most places wont even bother to come out from the counter to take 2-3 minutes to answer some questions. I wanted to be sure that at a minimum the replaced exhaust system was working properly - even if loud. My wife dropped the car off, and we also asked to have an alignment done. Chris called me later that day and explained, in detail, how the system was installed and that it was safe and running properly, but unfortunately based on the poor install done by another shop, the only remedy would be to replace more than was needed because of the way it was installed. After explaining it all, and having a full understanding I decided to leave it. I asked about the alignment and he said the mechanic drove it around and it was fine, and the air pressure in the tires was higher than needed. He lowered the pressure for me. Also, what I was most surprised with was that he said it didn't need an alignment. This may be the first time I've heard this out of a shop. Most, if not all places, will do it and charge you without determining if you even need it. To me, this speaks volumes of the person and the character of your manager, and your company. One can not put an estimate or price on honesty especially in the service market. Your manager gave me peace of mind and also saved me unneeded expenses. It's because of him, I will bring my car into Tuffy for all future work and will not hesitate one bit to recommend it to others. I really can't say how well I was treated on both times - and at no expense. Your company should be proud to have someone like this representing it.”
