“I was given a price to replace my alternator which was a fair price. I had taken 3 of my cars there and was always satisfied with the work performed. They called me the next day to quote me a price and I told them to go ahead. I picked it up a day later and it ran perfectly. Plus the price was actually $50 lower than quoted!! I will always support a family run business, I believe they will put forth a greater effort to make sure the vehicle is fixed right the first time. I am another satisfied customer. Thanks to all the guys at Tuffy!!”

“I called in and made an appointment for my 17 y.o. daughter to take her car in to get an oil change. I spoke to Wren who made her appointment for later that afternoon and gave me an amount that it would cost for her oil change. My daughter arrived 5 mins before her appointment time and they were ready for her. She didn't have to wait long for her oil change and it was less than I was quoted earlier! The best part of her experience.....they didn't see a young girl and try to sell her a 100 different things that she didn't need. I will always highly recommend this location. Thank you Tuffy Pickerington!!! ”

“I have used Tuffy Pickerington twice recently. The first time was to replace a serpentine belt that snapped. They were able to get me in and out the same day. I also got my front brakes repaired. For that I made an 8:00 appointment and was out the door by noon. Both times their prices were fair and they didn’t try to upsell me on things I didn’t need. I believe they are both competent and trustworthy.”

“We have been going to Tuffy for 20+ years and have always been treated fairly and with respect. Their pricing is very competitive and they stand behind their work.

“Wes, Kathy and crew are GREAT! I was told by my Honda dealership I needed new brake pads 2 different times, so I brought my car & van to Tuffy Pickerington. They inspected the pads on both vehicles and said the pads were fine and didn't need changed for several months at the least. Honda wanted my money right away, but Tuffy told the truth and saved me a lot of money. I only go to Tuffy Pickerington because they are honest and care about their customers. Go local...go with honest people...go to Tuffy Pickerington for your vehicle needs.”

“My wife and I have been taking our cars and SUVs to Tuffy since 1997. They do great work and only the work needed.

“The Tuffy automotive in Pickerington is a wonderful place to take your car, and you always get the piece of mind and satisfaction that it is done correctly. Kathy, Wes, Nate and the rest of the crew always take care of us. We are always able to drop the key off the day before our service day. Kathy always calls us when our car is done. If additional work is needed on one of our cars, Kathy always calls us to discuss our options. The one thing I love about Tuffy is if we just want an oil change and all fluids checked, that's all they do. They never try to press or persuade us into more work, or spending more money. They always do exactly what we want!! If I want a $25.00 oil change, I leave there paying $25.00, not $250.00. They are truly reliable, and my family simply will not trust anyone else to work on our vehicles. We are very blessed to know that our car care needs will always be taken care of with Tuffy in Pickerington. Thank you for many years of business and friendship.”
