    “Well! Louis Mills here again, and once again the staff at Tuffy exceeded my expectations once again. Had to bring it in for a check engine light. My car is older so panic started to set in BUT once John and his team looked over my car and gave me the full run down on what was needed I knew I was in good hands. The location is amazing, everyone there is friendly and 100% honest and trustworthy. My car or any other car I may own down the road will only be brought to this location. Thanks for all the hard work you all do and will continue to do. ”

    “I’ve taken all my vehicles to Tuffy for the last 10 years. They are always accommodating and quick turnaround. No games, they diagnose the problem, fix it, and stand behind their work. I recommend this location to anyone who appreciates quality work with honest and fair treatment. ”

    “I’ve been a customer with John and Joe at Tuffy for 20 years. Just recently bought a new vehicle and took it in for first oil change,, but before this I’ve had a few cars that had many miles and years on them and I could always trust John and Joe to have any of them working like they were brand new after the repairs. I could always trust not to be overcharged but have excellent repairs be done. Highly recommend these mechanics,,, treat you like family but serious about excellent service. ”

I never once felt like I was being price gouged. The mechanics do fabulous work. We only wish our own families lived closer so we could send them more business.

    “I won't take my car anywhere else. I brought my Sonata in for an A/C repair and while I only needed a new cable, the dealership wanted to charge for the entire wiring harness and said that the cable was not sold separately. John didn't believe that was the case and spent days calling distributors to find just the part I needed. His above and beyond effort saved me close to $1500. Thanks to John and his great team for their honest and thorough work! ”

Because of this, I can say that out of all of them, John and his crew at Tuffy, Batavia are number one, on the top of the list. John KNOWS how to re-built and service engines. His crew replaced and made a custom power steering line for my car when my Honda dealer could not! His crew is very knowledgeable, his prices are very fair, and I am very happy that my neighbor recommended this shop! Plus, they do great work!”

    “Just replaced my battery and 3 days later could not start my Jeep. Was at the Jewel in Batavia with my wife and a dead battery.. Called Walmart and they said they could not help me and recommended Tuffy. Called Tuffy, they asked for Make, Model and Year of mfg. Checked their supplier stockld and said they could have it done by the end of the day and also recommended a Towing Company. John ordered the alternator that was needed and was ready to help any way he could. When the vehicle arrived, they check the alternator and it wasn't the same. Reordered and had the replacement within the 1/2 hour, replaced it and sent me on my way. Not one time was any of the managers or mechanics irritated by them having to work late on a Saturday. I would highly recommend them for their professionality and patience for helping me out. The old school way of running a business is still alive and well”

    “Tuffys Batavia was recommended by a good friend that has been using them. In today's world who do you trust so, I went with the recommendation? All it took was one visit and have used them ever since. Now, I'm recommending them to all those that need the best service. John and Joe listen to your inputs and go from there. My last visit was for a power steering problem just as I got on Orchard Rd off Rt88. I drove straight to their shop and they fixed it in a couple of hours. I am quite capable of doing my own repairs but now, I just let these folks do it ..... Because I trust them.”

    “We're just a couple of old people who thought we had a problem with the brakes on our 2016 Honda CR-V. We went to Tuffy in Batavia this morning to have the pads and rotors inspected, expecting that we were looking at hundreds of dollars in repair bills. Our car was taken out for a road test, and the brake system was then inspected. There were no issues, and Tuffy reassured us our brakes were in good condition. There was no charge. I was very impressed by the honesty of this auto service shop. I recommend them to anybody who is afraid of being "ripped off" over auto services. Tuffy doesn't rip people off.

They were able to also take care of those issues in the same appointment. It was a great experience.”

    “These are very trustworthy people. I used them for a while for regular oil changes and a few other things. Recently I took my daughters 2013 beetle to VW for a clicking noise in the front. They wanted between $1500 to $1600 as they said I needed new shocks. I called Tuffy and John gave me a price of $699. I took my car in and left paying $69 which included an oil change. What??? My shocks were not rusty as I was told by the VW dealer in Elgin. Just needed to be adjusted. It has been a month or 2 now and it drives nicely. No noise. He could have taken my $699 and I would not have known better. This is where ethics and trust comes to play. They do a great job and you can trust them.”

Just yesterday had the oil changed and they did their inspection of my whole vehicle (which is 15 years old) and they noticed my rear shocks were leaking.

I walked into the shop early and they promptly took in my car for servicing, wheel alignment ahead of schedule. The work was completed on my car within reasonable time and there was even a recommendation to have front tires re-balanced back at Discount Tire* (the ones who initially recommended Tuffy's to me for the alignment work) for which I had done. It was an overall courteous and pleasant experience and done at a reasonable price* compared to other places. Thank you. ”

John, the manager, didn't question me or suggest I needed to have them look first because he trusted I knew what I needed. He had the part ready after I called and scheduled a rough time to come in. He had one of his associates replace it quickly. Best pricing around, great service, very professional and accommodating. I would highly recommend this shop for your next servicing. ”

To further emphasize my trust and faith in the shop, for the last 4 years I have traveled from my home in Michigan for their service.

    Aug 09, 2020 – Elburn, IL

    “I’ve been going to the Tuffy Service Center in Batavia for a few years now, after less than satisfactory experiences with dealerships and other repair shops. I have always found them to be extremely honest, professional, and dependable. John P. clearly explains what needs to be done after evaluating the problem, and he has never recommended more than what was needed. Each time I’ve brought one of my cars in with an issue, sometimes unannounced, it’s been fixed the same day, which rarely happened at dealerships. During my most recent visit one of my cars had developed a significant power steering leak. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the total cost of the repair was $105.00. I feel this could have been worked into a significantly higher repair bill at a less than reputable shop. This shops service, pricing, and above all honesty are outstanding. I highly recommend the Tuffy Service center in Batavia. They are now my go-to source for all my auto repairs. ”

    Jim A

    Aug 08, 2020 – Geneva , IL

John provides honest, fair, and great services to all the vehicles I have owned. I never worry when I bring my cars in because I know I’m getting quality service and fair prices. You won’t regret coming to Tuffy in Batavia! Five star service all around! ”

    “I used to live in Batavia & frequently went to Tuffy's. Then I moved to Elburn, received a free oil change from a different company. Tried them out & they seemed ok. Until I asked them to check out my son's car before he took it to college. To say they missed some very important, obvious things wrong with the car is an understatement. Needless to say, they didn't gain my trust yet but already lost it. I am back with Tuffy's and when I walked in Joe remembered not only me but the car I used to bring in, which is the one my son is now driving. John was friendly & accommodating on my first visit back. Thank you guys!”

You may be able to find repair cheaper elsewhere but that will only cost you much more in the long run. I have two 15 year old vehicles with 200,000 miles on each and they are still on the road driving perfect because of John and Joe at Tuffys.”

John is a really great guy!! He saved me $400 for the same service that I got a quote for from Firestone(Lake Street). I couldn’t believe it!! John and the crew are doing my breaks in 2 weeks!!

    “When John opened years ago, I was his second customer. I was driving home from a certain dealership that was so rude to me and totally failed to fix my new truck correctly, I was beside myself. I should note, I'm mult-line insurance adjuster and have been for 26 years, so I can smell when I'm being taken. As I passed his shop, I saw the grand opening and went in to fix a very small issue. I pulled in, met John, Joe and Todd and I never looked back. John is honest, forthcoming and NO ONE touches my cars. Case and point... was just there when an elderly customer brought in an estimate for a "second option " for 1500.00, John told her the repair would be 300. Just goes to show he does what is right. Wouldn't go anywhere else.”

In fact, John even gave me his opinion when it was time to stop dumping money into our old Sante Fe’s- which is why we brought the new one to Tuffy’s and will continue to do so. Thanks John, Joe and team! ”

    “What sets John's operation apart from the rest is that his people know how to "fix" problems, and not just "replace them". Over the last year I've had several situation with my truck that I though for sure was going to run me into big bucks. John's honest approach is to figure out if the problem can bie fixed before recommending replacing a lot of parts that don't need to be replaced. You cant ask more from your auto specialist than that !!! Trust is what its all about, and Johns shop has earned my trust and will continue to get my business. Thanks John !!!”

John & Joe are car guys and their knowledge is amazing. When we moved here 18 years ago I was looking for a place to take "My Baby" and couldn't find a facility that treated my other cars decently until I found Tuffy. Now I bring all my cars there with total confidence, especially "My Baby". Finding a trusted and reliable mechanic is very difficult, I've found mine! Huge shout out to the Batavia Tuffy Team!!!”

    “So exceptional it is hard to know where to begin. Being lucky enough to have most our vehicles in the past decade serviced under warranty at a luxury dealership we were in uncharted territory when we bought a used minivan. After putting a ton of miles on it, it dawned us we should have it serviced. We knew going to our normal dealership it would cost an arm and a leg and on a used car it didn’t make a lot of sense. I got word of this repair shop and in one visit I was more impressed than a decade of service at a luxury dealership. Everything from easily making a last minute appointment, to being walked through what to expect, to the unbelievable honesty at a time where it would be easy to take advantage of someone. They took apart my brakes initially thinking there was a lot of wear and tear, just to find out they were ok afterall. I will be a customer for life! Absolutely make an appointment you will not be disappointed!!”

For 17 years they have serviced our cars - and have provided outstanding service for my wife & I and a variety of kid's vehicles. I HIGHLY recommend John and his entire team. They are efficient, honest and true automotive professionals. As we prepare to leave Batavia for a new home, one of my deepest regrets is the loss of a honest and professional automotive shop.

    “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. ”

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”

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.”
