“There is not enough room for this POSITIVE REVIEW . Everyone I dealt with was fantastic. I called with an emergency repair and must be on the road for work. I ended up being a day behind schedule. They were very understanding and got me in and I got an almost complete brake job before lunch! Best car repair experience I have ever had. THANK YOU Cleveland street in Elyria Ohio!!”

“My civic was pulling me scarily into left lane oncoming all the time! Scary! Jeff at Elyria Tuffy fixed the problem! So grateful. My tires had decent tread but dry rotted. Who knew? They looked fine, low miles. He put on all new, reasonably priced and aligned. What a huge difference now. I actually am not afraid to drive my car and it hums along perfectly, smoothly in her own lane all the time. Thank You!!”

“Best place in Elyria for car care. Had exhaust work done and oil changes. Wonderful customer service and the prices are excellent. What I really like is the fact that they don't try to sell you work you don't need. They explain in detail what is required to repair your vehicle and they will give you several options for repair and will give you a quote for each. Wonderful! I would recommend this business to everyone. ”

“Having just moved to the area I was looking for a place to take my car for maintenance and such. As it happened I was in need of a new exhaust system and this was recommended by what I had read online. They did an outstanding job and was able to take me without an appointment. They even offered transportation if I did not want to wait. Job was completed earlier that expected and was perfect! Great people and great prices. ”

“ hats off to jeff jim and tom. after 2 yrs of trying to resolve issues with my 2004 jeep grand Cherokee brake problems they figured it out. seams 96 to 04 models had a problem with the master cylinder. this issue is denied by crysler and local auto dealers. jeff and my self spent countless hrs on line trying to get info about how to fix and repair the problem. discovered there are a lot of people with these issues, mainly having to replace pads and roters every 10000 mi. they found out that the relief valve in the master cylinder and booster assembly sticks causing the brakes to burn up. they resolved the problem by replacing the assembly and flushing the brake system. flushing the system is advised every 3 to 4 yrs according to a crysler service bulletin. after work was finishes Iam very happy with the way my jeep drives. again ty jeff jim and tom sincerly bill ”

“I left work at RIDGID and my car was making an unsettling noise. I pulled into the Tuffy on Cleveland street and it was close to closing time, but the guys offered to take a look underneath the car. My oil level had leaked to literally nothing and they topped me off as I promised to bring the car in the next morning. I dropped my car off and started walking toward work and one of the guys offered to take me to the office. Jeff and the guys helped me out of a potentially devastating car mishap just by putting the customer first. Their customer service really made an impression on me. As an aspiring business owner myself, I was simply inspired and promise to run my business with the high level of customer service and attention to detail Jeff and his team provided to me. Thanks Again! Tony”
