“I am a Minn. snow bird and needed to get an oil and filter change while here in Ft. Myers Beach. I checked around to find an independent that had good ratings and it took me to Tuffy in Bonita Springs. Stacey took care of me and everything was done on timeand all good. Soon after I developed a noise in the rear of the car and took it to Tuffy and Carl road tested it and informed me it was a rear wheel bearing. We ordered it and made an appointment to drop off the car and had it repaired on 3/8/22. They completed the work and I picked up the car on 3/9/22. We had a bit of miss communication on the repairs and after talking to Carl we resolved the issue and all was good. I will in the future take my service needs to Tuffy of Bonita Springs for as long as I keep coming to southwest Florida. The team is great.”

“You couldn't ask for anything more from Bonita Tuffy. Capable, respectful, accommodating to one's particular situation. From Stacy in the front office to Chris the owner to all the mechanics . . . OUTSTANDING.”

“I'll try to keep this short. I'm not local but I have a vacation home in Bonita. I've been taking my car to Tuffy since about 2006. Chris and the Tuffy mechanics are honest and have always gone out of their way to keep my Tahoe running safely without gouging my eyeballs out. I now have a newer car that they continue to keep running for me (when the car sits for a long time things tend to not always work correctly). The customer service Chris provides is second to none. I thought I was special (haha) because every time I go to the shop, Chris always remembers me and comes out to greet me (but after reading other reviews he seems to do that for everyone). He has even gone as far as driving my car to my residence when it was fixed to give it back and I couldn't walk to Tuffy due to the heat. I'm a custmer for life, thank you Chris.”

“Reliable and Honest. I had a brake repair quote from a car dealership which I thought was a little high, so I took it to Kris at Tuffy. I find out that one of the repairs could wait another 7-10,000 miles, the other had 70% useful life remaining, and the most expensive one didn't need to be done at all. I'm always bringing my cars to Kris at Tuffy! ”

“I have been using this Store for several years since relocating to Florida. Between Alan (previous manager) and now Kris I have never found a more pleasant and helpful environment. They are knowledgeable and fix it right the first time. They are friendly and always answer questions and the price is fair also!! I don’t want to need car repair often but I will always refer people to them.”

“Came in with a low tire and pressed for time. Chris stopped what he was doing to help me. Checked all tires and plugged one that had a nail in it! Couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. Really appreciate the excellent customer service- I will return as this is so rare these days!”

“I can't begin to tell you how impressed I was with Chris at your shop. He went out of his way and went the extra mile to take care of my lighting problem on my car. I have never had any auto servicing/auto repair technician take so much time and put in so much effort just to take care my problem. He went far beyond my wildest expectations in his level of service and commitment to your customers. Thanks again Chris!!!!!”

“Chris and his team are first class in everything they do, regardless of the task at hand. From a oil/tire change to diagnosing an issue, Tuffy Bonita Springs take the time to explain an issue (or potential issue) and ensure you have the information to make an educated decision. Best of all, they are good people who will not take advantage of your lack of knowledge or try to up-sell you on parts/service that are not needed. I would highly recommend them to anyone for all of your automotive/mechanical needs! ”

“After returning from a trip to Jacksonville. I noticed my van was making an unusual clicking sound on the front left tire. I immediately thought of Tuffy after having prior service done on my personal vehicle. After describing what I heard they immediately inspected my van to find the problem. They are professional, consistent and always trusting. It may be a little distant from my home but we'll worth the extra miles for the quality of service they provide. I highly recommend them and will continue to bring all my vehicles here. Thanks again! Senor Pepe.”

“I have 3 children, 2 are human and the other is my wrangler. I don't mess around with the kind of Dr. that either sees. That's why Chris at Tuffy's is the Dr. to my baby. Nobody touches my Jeep, but this crew. Knowledgable, good price, timely, quality work. #nobodyputsbabyinacorner #anhonestautoshop.”

“I recently took my '08 GMC Acadia to Tuffy Auto Service for A/C repair after diagnosis of a failed evaporator. Kris quoted the job based on 12 hrs. labor, plus parts. After two days in the shop it became clear that the job was much more involved than anticipated and it would take an additional two days to complete. I had obtained a rental car for transportation during the repair and, because of a weekend, needed to extend the rental by three days. Upon completion of the repair Kris held firm on the quoted price, even though the repair took much longer to complete. Additonally, Kris reimbursed me for the extended car rental. After I got the car back I noticed that the heater would not work. I returned to Tuffy for diagnosis and it was determined that the repair would require disassembly of the same components as the A/C repair - another two days in the shop. Upon completion of this repair Kris advised there would be no charge - for parts or labor!! These guys demonstrated the true meaning of exemplary customer service. I was referred to this Tuffy Repair Service by a friend and now I will not hesitate to refer my friends and acquaintances to them as well. Job well done guys!”

“I visited Chris at Tuffy Bonita Springs to get a headlight fixed and I have to say that I am very impressed with the service I received! The staff was super friendly and my car was finished within an hour or so. It's nice to know I've finally found a place to take my care where I don't feel like I will get ripped off! I've already recommended Tuffy Bonita Springs to a few friends and will continue to do so! Thanks, Chris and team! I really appreciate your help! ”

“Kris/Alan/Roland had to fabricate the back half of my exhaust system for my 25 year old foreign car. Without hesitation they tackled the job, completed it in record time and saved me gobs of money compared to a dealership. Very polite and professional. Highly recommended!”

“If you ever need brake work done on your car, these are the guys to do it! They're the best! There's an expression in business" In the long run, its HOW you do business, not just how much business you do!". These were the most ethical, customer-oriented car guys I've ever met. I thought my guys back in New England were good. These guys are even better! I put new rear brakes on my Honda CRV only 10,000 miles ago, and to my surprise, they started making noise, as if it were a warped rotor. Well, they pulled the wheels and discovered to my surprise that my guys in New England didn't do the job properly. The Calipers were not sufficiently lubricated and didn't fully release. This meant overheating on my brand new Brembo rotors, which supposedly don't warp. Well, I guess that's not true. Also, they taught me that ceramic pads are "cooler" than semi-metallic pads and make less noise. I didn't know that. I wanted to highly recommend this Tuffy operation and say the customer service provided by Owner Kris Miller, Sales Manager Alan Wilsker, and mechanic Reed was second to none. They were courteous, efficient, and they knew their stuff. Now I know better than to get semi-metallic brake pads again. I give these guys the highest possible grade and being honest, trustworthy, and easy to do business with. When you're on vacation, what more could you ask for? They get the highest possible grades from me and my wife! Many thanks, guys! Don Klepper-Smith West Tisbury, MA ”

“I am so grateful for the honesty and integrity of Alan and the staff. I took my car into a auto repair near my home in Naples and got a quote of over 1300 dollars. I took my car to Alan for a second opinion and got a $642 quote. I did not need a new battery or some other parts on the first quote. Thanks again for your good work. I will always do business with Tuffy of Bonita Springs and you should too!!”

“These guys are phenomenal. I've been taking my cars to them for years and without exception they are prompt, efficient, and honest. Kris and Alan are always helpful and sometimes don't even charge for small items. They say one of the first things you should do when moving somewhere new is find a good mechanic you can trust. I found them at Tuffy/Bonita.”

“This shop is amazing!! I have been a customer for years and they treat the customer right. The entire staff from the owner down is honest, honest, honest. What more can you ask for? They never will never try to sell you a repair you do not need. The vehicle is always ready when they say it will be. The price is very reasonable. I have recommended this shop to all of my family and friends!! Don't believe me try them for yourself!!”

“Kris, Alan and Team of Master Mechanics always do the job right. I've been bringing my different makes and model cars here for the past 5 years. Better service and rates than taking it to a dealership. Plus they get it done right from the start and stand behind their workmanship. You won't think of taking your vehicle anyplace else for routine maintenance or repair work.”

“Our Bonita Springs Tuffy is wonderful and Alan, the manager, is fabulous. He quickly got my husband's flat tire changed - in time for him to make an appointment...and the new tire was very reasonable. He checked out a worrisome red light indicator on my car and fixed a minor problem - in 10 minutes!! So glad he is in my chamber group. I highly recommend him and the shop.”

“We drove here from Canada after getting new tires on the front of the van before we left, wheel balancing and front-end alignment. I noticed intermittent vibration during the trip and wanted someone else to check it out for me. My wife was hesitant because we already paid for all this work and didn't want to pay all over again. I trusted my mechanics in Canada but something was definitely wrong. I found good reviews for Tuffy in Bonita Springs and made an appointment. I was apprehensive because - as we all know - a mechanic can basically tell you anything is wrong (like a doctor) and how to you know if it's the truth or not? The Tuffy guys were fast, efficient, and to the point. They balanced my tires and charged me $10/tire - half of what I paid in Canada. The vibration is gone. They explained what they did and that was it. Fantastic. I recommend Tuffy Bonita Springs all the way. Thanks guys!”

“My work truck overheated just around the corner from Tuffy's. I was able to coast in to their parking lot. After a brief conversation, they rolled my truck into a work bay and within a few minutes gave me a review of what was wrong and what it would cost and when it could be completed to get me back on the road. Regrettably, my superiors wanted the truck towed to our contract garage. When I asked the Tuffy manager what I owed for the inspection and estimate, he said "no charge". That came as a complete surprise in today's economy, so I wanted to share this with those looking for a trustworthy garage to take their vehicle(s).”
