    “I dealt with Charlie, I met him outside his work. He told me what he did for a living and then I told him I needed stuff done on a couple of my vehicles. He set up a time for me to bring it in. I don’t trust mechanics just saying. He made my experience awesome. He change my oil put new wiper blades on and then we went over my Truck and he told me what I needed now and what I can put off till the future. He did not overwhelm me we have set up a maintenance plan over the next month to get my truck 100% so it didn’t break me. He is awesome his crew is awesome. He will have all my service work from this point on. He literally showed me the things Needs addressed immediately. And the stuff I can put off for three or four weeks. Was truly amazing thank you Charlie. You rock and you have my business forever. Thank you again Kevin”

    “I cannot thank Chuck and his staff enough for helping me with my daughters car. They went the extra, extra mile to try and fix her car so she could get to college. Chuck always explains whats wrong and he does not up sell you! I sincerely appreciate the effort Chuck puts into helping make sure your car is operating at its best. I have been going to Tuffys for service for 17 years and actually switched to the Port Charlotte Tuffy's shop because of the service! Thank you Chuck!”

    “First time to Tuffy’s Port Charlotte,Florida. Online they claim to have the ability to install a cat back custom exhaust system. I am so happy I decided to take my Mustang to them. I purchased this system from a company on line (and this was a huge mistake. ) Chuck and his mechanics had to customize the exhaust system to make it work. Still they managed to install it in the time frame of the estimated price. Chuck (manager) truly wants his customers to leave satisfied. So glad to see customer service back again! ”

    “While dealing and living with this Global Pandemic, and everybody trying to do the right thing and SMART thing, to stay aware and be respectful to others, I wanted to take this time to pass on the right and respectful gratitude to "CHUCK" at Tuffys. The service and respectful way he represents the company, is another reason we bring our needs to him. Thank you Chuck! You are the reason we come back. Well wishes to you and your family.

    “On July 2, 2018, my car died on me and i had no idea what it could be. When I tried to start it, it started to smoke from the engine. I was horrified! My car is almost 18 years old. I replaced the starter in 2016, the alternator in 2017. I thought, this is it, time to suck it up and use up all my savings and buy whatever i could afford. After having Triple A tow it to Tuffy's, it was late in the day, so i worried all night. The next morning, they called to tell me it was the starter. I was so relived it was just the starter again. I had it fixed and its been fine since. Thank you to everyone at Tuffy's for fixing the starter and now I have more time to save some more money for a new car.”

    “I have been there 2x and the service is always excellent. I went there the other day for an oil change but didn't have an appt. So I made an appt. for the next day at 1:00 and the car was serviced and I was out of there before 1:30. The owner (I believe) is always professional and pleasant. So are the "shop" guys. They will advise you of any other services you made need. I'm very happy and will be using them for all my future oil changes and any other issues that may come up. Thank you Tuffy!”

We have had dealers quote $1200 and they fix it for $500. The waiting area is clean, with TV, assorted magazines, and even an expresso machine for free. They are prompt on service and getting you in and out. ”

    “really like my experience with these guys. have recommended them to all my friends and anyone looking for reliable and honest service. there prices are lower than any place I have tried. on more than one occasion they have spent time on my truck and not charged me cause they couldn't fix the problem cause I couldn't afford the repair. I will always go there first.”

    “Extremely trustworthy and excellent service. I was very used to walking into a mechanics shop and immediately feeling like they were trying to take advantage of the fact that I was a young female by myself. I first came to tuffy 8 months ago for an oil change and I would never take my car anywhere else. Chuck and the boys take extremely good care of my car and always tell me exactly what I need and always give me prices before doing it. They never try to push me into anything I can't afford and always work with me. They are extremely honest and trust worthy and do an excellent job! I recommend Tuffy in port Charlotte to all of my friends and most of them go there now. Thank you so much for always making me feel welcome guys!”

    “Tuffy always does a great job with repairs and maintenance of all our cars. I trust them to do the job right. However, their website has some major issues. If you schedule an appointment online, they have no idea you have one. Also, when presenting coupons, they often have never heard of them. I think that is a corporate issue though....They people at the PC location are great and their work is perfect!”
