    “Our family has been going to the Pickerington Tuffy for almost 2 decades now. The customer service and care that my family receives is always top notch. I recently brought a car tire in that had a screw in it, and Wes patched it no problem. It reminded me of the old car shops of yesteryear! Family-owned, family treatment. That’s why we love them!!”

    “I always have an excellent experience at Tuffy Pickerington, whether it's replacing a flat tire, or routine oil changes. I really appreciate that, when doing an oil change, they just do the oil change--they don't try to upsell you like so many other places do, and their prices are so reasonable! The entire staff is professional and courteous, as well, which I appreciate. They really do care about their customers. ”

    “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. They have addressed all of our questions and referred us to other reputable shops when appropriate. They even help us prioritize services on our cars so that we can keep work under control financially. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!”

    “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. Talking to Kathy or Wes in the waiting room reminds me of the repair shops of old where the owners know their customers personally and ask about their families as if we all have been neighbors for years. ”

    “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.”
