“First time customer! I called for an appointment to have them diagnose and recommend a solution for my "old lady" vehicle. Carl helped me make the appointment. Keith greeted me when I arrived. From first contact to my visit today I can tell you without reservation--if you're looking for honesty, pride of workmanship, and the ultimate in customer service you're "home." Keith took the time to answer my questions and suggest recommended solutions. This is a Five Star * * * * * business. Highly recommended and since my other mechanic retired (new grandbabies!) Tuffy @ W. 5th Avenue is THE PLACE I'm going to take my car from here on out. Ladies and Gents if you want to do business with a company that values you as a customer--this Tuffy is [the] place to take all your vehicles. Thanks to Carl, Keith and the Tuffy Crew. Ya'll did an excellent job! ”

“I had my front right wheel calibre lock up, did the job in just hours on both wheels and saved me almost ninety dollars, somehow, not sure how, but the savings and good job add up to an A for me.”

“I wanted to give an update to a previous review I felt strongly about. I am very pleased with how Tuffy: Grandview handled a recent frustrating experience I had. I had taken my Scion in for a consistent noise that wasn't getting the attention I was hoping for. Because of their customer service, they made everything right. I want to thank Tuffy for the professionalism and commitment to make things right. I will definitely use their services again. They showed me that they really want to help and resolve their customers issues! To them I say Thank You!”

“Keith, G.P, and the whole crew at this location have taken excellent care of me for multiple years. I am not a car person and don't pretend to be. I feel I'm treated fairly and well informed of why the pricing is what it is. I would recommend this location to anyone. ”

“I am a concierge at RMH and have brought in a multitude of customer vehicles for service. The people and work has always been great at this location. I believe the cost of the packages they offer are incredible. I recommend checking them out ☺”

“Keith & team do good work and take time to explain your service. I was reluctant to have a auto repair chain work on my vehicles because my experience with Goodyear, Midas, Firestone, etc. has been one of hard sales, i.e., selling you parts and services you don’t need. So far, that has not been the case with Tuffy Grandview.”

“I have taken my cars, from a 2002 Jeep Liberty, to a 2009 BMW, and have NEVER been disappointed in the service I've received! Keith ALWAYS explains everything to me in terms I can understand. They have NEVER tried to sell me anything, but only make sure I understand what may or may not be needed! Won't go anywhere else! These guys are top notch!”

“Kieth was wonderful. I brought my boyfriends car in for an oil change the other day, and he was respectful and accommodating to my requests. As a young female, I often feel that car service centers will try to take advantage of what they assume is my lack of knowledge regarding what services I need done...I did not feel as though this occurred at this location, Keith did not try to push services or products on me for the car. I find this incredibly valuable! The price for a full synthetic oil change was reasonable, and when I asked them to look at the brake pads and let me know how much life was left - they did this no problem! This Tuffy's easily deserves a 5 star rating! I am so thrilled with my choice to come here. ”

“Friendly and HONEST! Stopped in to have some brake and exhaust issues checked. Experts went over my car and actually told me my car was fine and needed nothing done at this time! On top of that they even took time to talk to me and explain why. Professional, courteous, and HONEST.”

“This Tuffy location is the real deal. The personal, sincere service makes it feel like the shop I went to when I tagged along with my Dad, as a kid. Keith is great and so patient. He always makes time to answer all of my questions and explain the why and how. The waiting area is spotless and I've never waited longer than they've quoted me. I can't say enough great things about this location - it's really the only place I'd take any vehicle in Columbus. One more thing- Keith and staff always remember my name, are so polite and always check in about issues I've discussed in the past. I feel like this is truly a rare customer service experience! Thanks, guys!”

“I was in town with my daughter who was interviewing for medical residency at OSU. We drove in from Pittsburgh to Columbus in awful traffic the Sunday after Thanksgiving. My low tire pressure indicator was on, the next day every place that had air (like Getgo) was out of order and I didn't have a pressure gauge in,y car. Don't like driving around a strange city! Carl at Tuffy checked my tires with a smile and made my day! It may not seem like much but you don't often experience pleasant help like that these days! Thank you Carl and Tuffy! , ”

“I went in for 4 new tires, asked them to check an exhaust leak as well and they went above and beyond what I expected in service! The price they quoted me was the price I paid (honest quote), they found the solution to my exhaust problem. I had to get to a viewing for a family friend's funeral at 6pm and these gentlemen worked on my car past closing time to make sure I was able to get there. The manager, Keith, is a real friendly guy, and pays attention to the details to get the job done right (they cleaned out the rust in my wheels rims to make sure they'd seal properly). Not only that, but they put my spare back in the truck (and I had a ton of personal stuff in the trunk of the car) and put everything back in the trunk in a neat and organized manner. From my experience, this 5th Avenue Tuffy takes care of the customer with respect and integrity. I'll be coming back for any of my automotive needs in the future.”
