“So we had a oil change done a couple of days ago. Sadly we got a defective part. 3 days later the oil pressure warning sign came on and I checked. I called Tuffys and spoke with Fred and his was able to see me just before they closed and they fixed the problem. Thank you Tuffys.”

“I normally do not leave reviews but I had to come on here and leave 5 stars. I was very appreciative/ impressed with how quickly they were able to get me in to do my oil change. I made an appointment online then called to confirm. Maybe I was just lucked out timing wise but I was in and out in about 30 min! Normally when I go to Walmart (where I normally go) it’s atleast an hour or more. Also as a female going into a mechanic shop I tend to feel intimidated/ need to be on my guard for mechanics trying to chalk up imaginary stuff to get me to spend more money. They were kind, honest and it really put me at ease. Will definitely return for future oil changes/ services if needed! ”

“I just wanted to thank the Tuffy employees at this location that assisted this 'senior' lady on Friday 3/16/18 & checked the air in my tires & filled the ones that required air.. I was making the trip back from Ocala to New Port Richey & wanted to make sure the tires had the required air pressure but find it hard to get down & up to perform this task now.. I usually go to Tuffys here in New Port Richey & always find Tuffys employees helpful & pleasant.. Thank you again for your help.. ”

“I called Tuffy this afternoon and spoke with the managaer about my air conditioner which was making horribly loud screeching noises..he told me to bring it in and he would look at it. He showed me the two belts that looked fine to me but were about 5 minutes from breaking. He replaced the belts and my car is running like brand new. He was wonderful and did such a great job. ”

“Brought my 2010 BMW 335i coupe for alignment. Very friendly and knowable staff. Not only did they correct my alignment but explained in details about what they did. This wasn't my first expensive dealing with Tuffys mechanics, they also changed my water pump and thermostat at half the fraction cost that the dealer would charge... overall experience very happy customer ..”

“On my way to New Year's Vacation, my car had a simple but very noisy problem that made me think the worst. I manage to get to this car service center. The staff was courteous and prompt. They quickly took care of my car and I was back on the road in no time. I was so appreciative that I could continue my travel plans without interruption, that I was more than willing to pay premium rates for the repair. The most amazing thing was that they did not charge me, because in their words "it was nothing " . Needless to say, I am the most impressed with their service and honesty. I highly recommend TUFFY CAR CENTER of Ocala FL. When I am in the area I would not go anywhere else for my car service needs!! ,”

“Almost closing time and needed a new tail light while driving back to Wisconsin. Tuffy Ocala could not have been more accommodating even with a vacationing boss helping out to get it done in a timely and reasonable manner. This location should be commended for how they helped me on April 15, 2015!!”

“I've been in Ocala for 9 years and met Fred and the gang in the first year for repairs to one of my work vans. They did an excellent job and saved me time and money. Tuffys continues to provide excellent service, preventative maintenance, and saves me money today. I've never experienced honest, well trained, caring mechanics as i find at Tuffys. Thanks, See you soon ”
