John was very courteous and helpful in taking on our job for suspension and other work on our 2012 Dodge. Thank you again!

WHY would someone do business Solely with the same company for over 12 years? Honesty, Integrity, Trustworthy & Vast Experience. When you are fortunate to find All (not some) of these traits in one particular business who's owner & every person who works there each possess these qualities, not only Do You Stay With Them, you scream it from the mountain tops & share with as many people as you can That's Why.

Driving home on Sunday we heard a noise and our exhaust completely broke under our car. The places we usually go for work were talking about a complete replacement and us paying too much to repair our very old car. We just needed it to run again for those everyday, around town things. I noticed Tuffy had some great online reviews so I decided to give them a try. I called and John said all the right stuff. Kept it simple, which I appreciated. I had the car towed and a couple hours later they had it back to me and for super cheap! I was shocked and so grateful I had a mechanic know my situation and the kind of work I wanted to put into my car and made it work again. I have a new go-to mechanic in Batavia. I encourage you to check out Tuffy.

I have been using Tuffy in Batavia for over ten years. John and Joe are professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and very fair. Whether it's basic maintenance or a major repair, I trust that John and Joe will do the job well and for a competitive price. Look...finding an auto mechanic you can trust isn't a given, but no I can always say, "Hey, I got my guys." They always do great work.

I just got new tires and needed a 4 wheel alignment and was given a coupon for Tuffy's in Batavia. They began work on my 2000 Bonniville immediatly. John informed me I needed further work, (outer tie rods & ft wheel bearings). He ttook his time to explain and when I ask how long to get parts, schedule time, etc. I got an unexpected response. Johntold me the parts were in stock and if I had things to do, gave me a loaner car. When I picked up the car and drove home the difference was phenominal. They earned my repeat business. ~ doug k, aurora

When you have older cars, there will be repairs. BUT, at Tuffy's Batavia, I can assure you it's never for the same thing twice. John & Joe know us for 16 years, 5 different cars. We have always followed the schedule they have provided to stay ahead of repairs. Sometimes, things just go due to age. When they do, John takes us in same day & Joe and his amazing team have us back on the road in 24 hours or less. We are family to them, we're treated as such, I never once doubted their commitment to excellence, their pricing nor their honesty. God Bless you guys and thank you for Always having our back.

I've been taking my car to Tuffy in Batavia for maintenance. In addition to oil changes, they have replaced some parts that make my car run like new again. Everyone looks to find "the car guy" that they can trust to do good work at a fair price. Look no further than Tuffy in Batavia. I will continue to use their services for years to come!

I just started working in Batavia 3 months ago and asked for recommendations of a repair shop in the area. Working more than 60 from home I wanted a repair place I could count on. Tuffy was recommended by co-workers. Yesterday my engine started rattling badly and called John at Tuffy. He not only was able to get my car in he was also able to get it done in time for me to get home. Great communication, great timing, repair done right, could not ask for anything more. Thanks John and crew!!!

The entire staff at Batavia Tuffy, especially John and Joe, have taken care of my car for the past 10+ years. Excellent service and prices. They are very helpful and friendly. Once I started taking my car to Tuffy, I haven't taken it anywhere else. They are the best!

— Sue C., Sugar Grove, IL


I have had a long relationship with this store and John & Joe have always been completely honest and trustworthy. As a single woman, this is not always the case when it comes to vehicles. They have taken the time to explain repairs & maintenance needs every time. Work was done well & in a timely matter-I never had to return to re-do anything. These guys are awesome!

— Vicki K., Yorkville, IL


I have been a customer for 15 years. Happy anniversary Tuffy. I trust John and Joe completely. Always courteous and friendly. True professionals. Have always taken good care of me and my vehicles. Can't say enough good things about these two honest gentlemen. Love you guys.

He is professional , he is knowledgable, but most important helpful and compassionate to the customer who might be upset with car issues... I feel he is the real deal..

I recently was checking Tuffy's website and entered and won 4 oil changes. My car had not been serviced here before but will from now on. The staff are all very professional and knowledgeable and the prices very reasonable. In fact, I found them to have much better prices than the local competitors. Thank you for the great service!

We recently moved out of state from Geneva but I wanted to write a quick note about the excellent service at Tuffy Batavia. We have been customers there for well over 10 years and have always received excellent service at a fair price We regularly take all four of our cars there. I highly recommend them for any issue with your car. John and Joe have been absolutely great over the years. After we started going there we never went anywhere else Thanks to both of you for the great service. Doug and Pat S.

Just wanted to say thanks to crew at tuffy's of Batavia. I have been going to Tuffy's for 13yrs and you guys blow it out of the water. Joe the service manager has fixed my Chryslers for years and is always done right the first time. Every time I have been to the dealer and they find a problem. Joe beat there price by hundreds of dollars. Great job guys. You guys have all mine and my families business.

I want to say that I was very impressed with your batavia staff ! I was greated by the manager who explained in detail what the procedure was in getting my brakes inspected and fixed . Joe test drove my car and then pulled it in to inspect . I watched from the waiting room and he was very quick and efficient to bring me the info . Wow within like 10 minutes I had a fair and reasonable price in front of me .. I never really worked on cars growing up. The process was thoroughly explained to me by Joe from the start to finish as to how he was gonna take care of my car and get my brakes safe .. All I can say is wow start to finish In a hour ! I never thought I could get my brakes done on my lunch break ? Thanks Joe for the QUICK and FANTASTIC service ... You have me as CUSTOMER FOR LIFE !

I spoke with Tuffy on the phone last Friday the 21st. The manager was very helpful, kind and generous helping my daughter with her check engine light issue. I discussed with the manager that my daughter just turned 17 on the 21st and her mother and I were divorced and tight on money. the Tuffy team was kind enough to perform the diagnostic test free of charge. Luckily to fix the problem only cost $35.00!! I appreciate everything the staff did for my daughter and I. Thank you very much Tuffy of Batavia!

This place was/is amazing. The service they offer is the best. They are quick at and great at doing their jobs. I like to keep a close eye on my vehicles when someone is working on it. but with tuffy batavia i dont have to worry about them doing anything wrong. they also allow me to watch. Other shops will not allow that. when something was wrong with my car they informed me and gave me a great price and was able to fix it real quick. i hope all tuffy's are like this one. As long as I live in the area i will go to them for anything i need.

My wife Margie and I have been customers here since they opened back in 2001. 3 Words: Exceptional Customer Service. The entire team are The Best at What They Do & They Are 100% Honest. We just had both cars down at the same time. I called yesterday(Friday) they said bring them right over. A lot of maintenance work was needed on both cars. Anywhere else this would have been days to complete, I write this now merely 24 hours later with both cars at home. John, Joe and your entire team, as always Margie & I are sincerely thankful for all that you do and for keeping us safe.

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your service. So far, so good on the AC working properly. I feel so much better now to have working AC again. Thank you for staying open last night until I got there, even though it was past 6. Thank you also for being so kind to me. I’m so grateful to have not gotten taken advantage of. I am telling everyone here about Tuffy and trying to get them to change their normal mechanics to you, because you did such a great job and took care of me. I definitely want to look into getting the windows fixed. (2 to start). Rest assured I will be back for the work over the summer. Thanks again!

— Linsday W., Batavia, IL


Just would like to say a HUGE thank you to the Batavia branch Tuffy’s in Illinois… and in particular; the sales manager. He and his crew took very good care of me when I brought my vehicle in to have some pretty major repairs done that “another” shop COMPLETELY screwed up on. Best experience I have ever had at an auto repair shop. Very pleased with the service and quality! =)
