    “I called this Tuffy location near closing time on 11/10/20 needing a last minute wheel alignment before an upcoming long road trip. They told me they’d try their best to get it done same day if I could drop the car off first thing in the morning. They remembered me in the morning, the staff was polite and professional, they did my alignment same day, and it was a great value compared to my dealership. I’ll be back in the future. Tuffy corporate should consider investing a bit in this location, as the inside seemed run down and dated. The employees seem to be doing a great job, there were plenty of cars being worked on and waiting, and I think the location deserves some investment (though the actual service was great).”

    “Me and my family always take our cars to this location. My car was making a funny noise so I took it in to get checked out, and the guys were totally honest, and very nice. They told me it was because of rust on something, and that I shouldn’t be too worried. They didn’t charge me anything, which is amazing, considering i’m a young female. Very honest people here, thank you so much!”

    “The Tuffy's on 44th & Kalamazoo has honest, trustworthy people who do very good work (some places make unethical recommendations, or will even break something new and tell you it needs to be fixed). That's why integrity results in trust.”

    “This place is fantastic. They helped me out in a bind. My car wouldn't start and they came out to the gas station next door and helped me get it started and then replaced the starter in just a matter of hours. They were totally honest, full of integrity, and very friendly. I highly recommend.”

    “David, the manager, is the man! I am a female and these body shops take advantage of us. I was so fed these repair shops lying about things that are not broken/damaged, paying for services that were never performed (Muffler Man, to be honest), and fixing one problem, then something else is wrong.....must I go on. I tested David. I know my vehicle and have read my manual. I went in to have a free inspection to see what David will tell me to see if i could trust him. And he did just that and informed me that I didn't need Oxygen sensor. Overall, he saved me time, money, and frustration. I only let David and Danny (tech) work on my vehicle. If you want the truth at an affordable price AND great customer service, I recommend Tuffy on 44th and Kalamazoo. Definitely get what you pay for at a great price and honest feedback.”

    “I never take the time to write reviews but this time I just have to do it ,no matter what. First I went to Discount Tire with a noise comimg from the front of my 2005 Explore. Two of the guys at Discount Tire said they couldn't fix my truck but told me to take it to Tuffy which is around the corner. They also said that the manager is a good guy and is honest. Good guy and HONEST. I went to Tuffy on Kalamazoo Ave. They were absolutely right. Your manager took the time and explained the issue with my truck, setup an appointment and got me on the road. He is friendly, and knows his stuff. Most important he is honest. I have been a loyal Muffler Man guy since I was 16. No longer, I highly recommend the Tuffy on Kalamazoo in Kentwood. They could of jacked me around. They didnt... Thank You Ralph M”

First of all they are courteous and most of all honest with the customer. You could not ask for a better auto repair service. Their work is excellent and dependable. Chris and Mike (mechanics) are absolutely the verrrrry best. Thank-You, Sincerely Regina Busman Kentwood Michigan”
