Darren & Karen run a top notch auto repair center! My wife's Prius is running like since Tuffy replaced the spark plugs and did the appropriate diagnostics! Try Tuffy Bradenton for your next service. You won't be disappointed.

— Pete M., Lakewood Ranch, FL

The service we received at Tuffy in Bradenton, Fl was outstanding, 5 Star! We will return for additional service and we recommend this shop to any friend who needs help. The expertise that Jayson Warren has on Honda autos was paramount regarding our Accord. He was able to identify the problem and repair it in short order. Well done Jayson.

— Penny K., Bradenton, FL

Always receive great service. Staff are very knowlegeble and give great recommendations and will not sell you on services/repairs you do not need!

— Peter D., Lakewood Ranch, FL

My husband and I have used Tuffy for service for over 20 years. Our car is over 18 years old. In additional to oil changes and service in the year since he died, I have been there three times. They helped me with a problem with the rear view mirror, they opened my stuck gas tank and today they changed my license plate. Never a charge for this. Thank you Tuffy. I hope that I an around for another twenty.

— Diane D., Bradenton, FL

They are very honest people and all people there. Are nice. And they take pride what they do and do not take advantage of you

— Frank gauci G., Bradenton, FL

— Thomas E., Bradenton, FL

Great service and friendly team!

— Dustin A., Lakewood Ranch, FL

Took my car in to have brake pads replaced and rotors turned. I had just changed my tires and as the brakes had 35K miles on them I figured I would have brakes done also. Got a call from the shop and they told me I didn't need to do work. (about $300 worth) They could have just as easily changed brakes and I would have been none the wiser. GREAT doing business with honest people. I will go no where else in the future.

— tom b., sarasota, FL

Have been taking my vehicles to Tuffy for over 8 years! Honest service, great work, highly recommend! Thanks for great service!

— Jennifer H., Bradenton, FL

I called with what I thought was a transmission problem. I explained what was wrong and they told me to bring my car in and they would take a look. Without an appointment, they test drove my car and checked the mounts and couldn't find anything wrong. It took about 20 minutes. Very nice people and they didn't charge me for their time. I will be taking my business there going forward.


I have always loved and trusted this car repair company. I have lived in Bradenton since 2002 and I take my Tahoe to Tuffy's only, for all my service work. I have total faith in this company. The staff and owner make you feel part of the family and that they are caring for your car needs as if you were family. Thank you Tuffy's for the awesome job you just finished last night. Quite happy to have AC again.

— Kitty B., Bradenton, FL

Very trustworthy. Have had my brakes checked there twice. The first time I needed two new brake pads, but the other brakes were fine. Went back to have them check again a few months later and they were still OK. Didn't charge me anything the second time. I highly recommend them. Many places would have told me I needed new pads and/or rotors, but these guys are truly honest and reliable.

— Steve E., Sarasota, FL

I had an oil change and tire rotation done. I was in and out in less than 1 hour. The only thing I don't like is how they do tire rotation. They don't perform the recommended method of crossing the tires over from one side to the other nor do they rotate the spare in the mix.

— Larry M., Sarasota, FL

They doa great job. Always very nice. Very honest.

— Gayle T., Bradenton , FL

I just want to thank Jason Warren for his kind jestures of helping me and my girlfriend. Whe my car was towed to their facility Jason took us to a restaurant as my girlfriend has diabetes and it was starting to have an affect on her. He then came and picked us up and took us back to the shop. My car was not repairable. so Jason offered info to us so we could make a decision on what to do. He the took us to a Subaru dealer and we got a new car to lease. Jason, thank you for every thing you did for us.

— tom H., port st lucie, FL

These guys always treat me with exceptional service, and only 25 and usually if you go someplace being the showing will take a vantage of you. But Ive been going to this exact store for so many years and they always take good care of me and they talk to me and make me feel welcome to. Best thing that Ive ever seen at a dealership. Will not be losing my business

— Elisa V., Parrish , FL

Received timely, professional service when my car broke down while on the road visiting relatives. Mechanic was thorough in terms of discussing what repairs were needed, making sure to keep me fully informed before doing the needed work.Not cheap, but cheaper than dealers' rates. Overall, quite satisfied.

— Robert O., Bakersville, FL

I have been to a lot of Auto repair shops in my short life, but I have not been to one that is as honest and trustworthy as Darren and his staff. I would put Darren and his staff up against any shop.

I am always satisfied with Tuffy's great service and always willing to help when you are stuck.

— Lianne H., Ellenton, FL

Took in my 2011 Sante Fe for a 75,000 mi service. Lots to do, brakes, plugs, oil change and filter, transmission fluid and filter, etc. Needed new brake rotors. Called me to tell me the rotors couldn't be turned but if I could leave the car overnight they could get rotors from a different vendor and save me serious money. Darrin, Phil and all the guys are just terrific. They do all the mechanical work properly the first time and never try to sell me anything I don't need. I been using them for over 12 years and wouldn't take my vehicle anywhere else.

— Rick D., Bradenton, FL

Outstanding friendly service. Using Tuffy for over 8 years. Very satisfied.

Everyone I have met there is wonderful and I know when I drop my car for service it is going to be done correctly and I never feel I am being taken advantage of and I over heard a conversation by Jason with a client and I was very impressed with his advice to the person and both he and Darren are wonderful.

— Gayle T., Bradenton, FL

Jason and Darren are wonderful. I trust them to do what they feel My car needs. everyone I have met a the facility is very very nice. I recommend them any time I know someone needs an auto repair.

— Gayle T., Bradenton, FL

Tuffy Auto on SR 70 was been such a great place for me to take my car to. Since day one they took the time to explained repairs my vehicle needed and help me prioritize repairs and not overwhelmed me with the much needed repairs and maintenance services my vehicle needed. Thank you Tuffy for keeping my car going!

I had another great experience at Tuffy. They are very professional and speedy. Our family has used Tuffy for two years now, and we tell all our friends and family about them...You can't go wrong with Tuffy.

— Ken M., Bradenton, FL

Whenever we take our cars in for service we know they will be worked on by friendly and honest people. When going for an oil change they don't try to find ten other repairs to charge you for.
