    “My car died and I needed to get it towed somewhere. I was a mess having broken down on the expressway and so upset. Just moved here so didn't know where, but we always had good luck with Tuffy's. Called Riverview and even though closing, the manager, Chris, stayed open until I got there. Thought I'd have to leave it and take the next day off work, but no. Chris took care of it and his mechanic, Flor, reattached my fallen off front bumper - the whole thing that wraps around - for no charge! I had to tip him and was happy to do it. We've found our new service center! Thank you Tuffy's of Riverview. ”

    “There is a good reason why AAA recommends Tuffy Auto Service. Tuffy is friendly, reasonable, and provides excellent service. I always have my car checked at Tuffy's before I drive out of town, I have confidence in their work. They earn the 5 star.”

    “Two weeks ago I took my 2002 Camry to Tuffys for a complete checkup along with an oil change. Kyle was at the front desk and greeted me cheerfully. I had an appt and Kyle was prompt on getting my car into the shop. When it was completed I truly expected that there would be a lot of items that needed repair. Kyle gave the bill and it was only $139. He said the mechanics thoroughly looked at everything, belts, tires, brakes,etc., etc. and everything was fine. Kyle shared my happiness with me saying for an 18 yr old car, it was in very good condition. He did give me a heads up by explaining that since it is 18 yrs old with 57,000 miles, it may start to nickel and dime me in the future. It was great that he passed that info on to me. Kyle gives an exceptional first impression at the Riverview’s Tuffys. Do all you can to keep him in your company because you do not want to lose him. Thanks for hiring employees of this caliber.”

    “Finally.. I found a local shop that understands, knows, not intimidated by the type of car and performs! I'm a DIY'r and perform basic maintenance at home. However, there are those moments when time and not having that certain tool is not in my favor. I had a shop in the area that I used for years however, the owner relocated. I needed a shop that I felt did not just repair cars but had a PASSION for working on cars no matter the type and who will take the care when working on it. This day...I decided to roll the dice after reading a few reviews and hit the jackpot! Not only do these guys know what they are doing, they are truly CAR GUYS. It's such a relief knowing they have the skills, knowledge and .....> Experience. No job is too small or too large. They took care of my initial needs without a hiccup as we talked about performance cars. I returned a month later for a minor job with my wife's car that I needed to address before going out of town. They identified the issue, made the recommendation, repaired and out the door we went. Excellent & Efficient Work! ”

    “I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Manager and mechanic John for the excellent service they provided when I came in with a slow leaking tire. Although they found the leak they were unable to effect a repair due to its location on the tire wall.. However they replaced the tire free of charge and gave me some valuable advice. Thanks again.”

    “Had to have my vehicle towed there because of a transmission fluid leak, this was on a Sunday so the store was closed. I used their email feature to give them information about the problem. Called Monday morning 10 minutes after they opened and they already had the vehicle on the rack. They had told me they received the email, and they would call me back as soon as they had a diagnosis. They called within 40 minutes of the initial call to confirm that I did in fact have a failure of my transmission lines. They stated they would replace the lines as well as flush and fill the transmission. This is exactly what they did, and the vehicle was finished early in the afternoon. They could not have been more professional, or more prompt in handling my concern. Everything was fixed to my complete satisfaction! I am extremely pleased with the service I received and will definitely utilize Tuffy Riverview again. They were nothing short of fantastic!”

    “We want to recognize Donavan who was handling the front desk when we came in. He greeted us immediately in a friendly, professional manner and asked if he could help us without hesitation. He presents a very favorable first impression of your business. He's an excellent employee whom we hope you value and recognize.”

    “We use Tuffy for all our vehicles! They are busy so get their early or make an appointment but they are by far the best in the area. They are honest and have earned our loyalty. Took a vehicle there YEARS ago for a brake change because dealership said I needed pads, rotors, etc. Made the appointment at Tuffy before a long road trip and they called to ask me why I thought we needed new brakes; they were fine! WOW! That earned my trust and that was years ago and we have been extremely happy with every service performed on our various vehicles!”

    “We were headed to Orlando on our family vacation and had a blow out on I-75. We quickly pulled off and stopped into Tuffy's. They did not have our tire in stock to replace quickly so we had to put our spare on ourselves. A couple of the guys came out and helped us do it quickly and safely. We were back on the road in 15 minutes---SAVING THE DAY. All the frowns turned upsidedown as my kids were thrilled to be back on the road headed to Sea World. Great customer service!!!!”

    “Donovan Doyle & his staff came to our rescue on 6/30/17. We were hauling our 35' - 5th wheel toy hauler to Georgia when we had a blow out on one of the tires and the spare was in very bad shape. We managed to make it to Tuffy in Riverview. The guys took very good care of us and put 4 new tires on the 5th wheel so we could get to Georgia. AWESOME JOB!!!! Thank you so much.”

    “My father and I were coming back from the Florida keys towing our boat. We got side swiped by a pickup truck that appears driver fell asleep at wheel. We had a blow out on alligator alley and changed our tire. We had another blowout on same tire location just before big bend road. We pulled over looking for a gas station but saw a taffy auto service. Unfortunately they were closed for the evening. My father was on the phone with the insurance company when two gentlemen, Donovan and Chris who were on their way home who came out to help us. They graciously changed our tire and unbeknownst to us when the pick up side swiped he actually damaged the trailer which was causing the damage t the tire. Chris and Donovan repaired our trailer as well. This was first class service by these two guys who helped us out after ours prior to going home. I don't know of any other company that would have helped us out in this situation. Highly recommend you check them out for your car needs, thanks again.”

    “I went into Tuffy's this afternoon convinced I needed my brakes serviced. I spoke with a mechanic named Chris who was very helpful. He took the time to investigate my concerns, put my car on a lift, brought me into the service area, and explained in detail why he felt my car did not need to be serviced! I was shocked in the most positive way because I had expected to spend at least $350 for new brakes. I can't tell you how happy I was to hear that I didn't need them yet. Thank you Tuffy's...I'll be back when my car needs to be serviced. :)”

    “Just want to take a moment to say thank you to the staff at Tuffy Riverview. I always bring my mom's car in on my lunch hour for its quarterly oil change. The staff is professional and courteous and always gets me in and out in time to grab a sandwich before heading back to the office. ”
