Auto shops are everywhere, and they all claim to help fix your car if something goes wrong, but how do you know who to trust? Word of mouth, reviews, and so on. All too frequently, shops may try to cheat you out of something. I have been going to same shop for the last five years, and if you are in the Central Florida area, you should check them out too.
Tuffy Tire and Auto Service is a chain shop. Chain shops can go both ways: you can hear good things, or bad things. It pays to keep in mind though that they are individually owned, so one shop may be better than the rest. I have been going to the Tuffy on Semoran Boulevard for years, and I am pleased every time.
They offer great, fast, and quality service, the people there are friendly, and they work with you on pricing. They are a full service shop, so if you need something fixed (short of a transmission), they can help you. They help out students as well with discounts; especially if you are a Full Sail student.
Full Sail students are treated very well there. They are offered the best discount, and they are even given rides. Not just to home from the shop, but even to and from class. Want to buy a used car from a private seller? Tuffy will check it out for FREE if you are a Full Sail student BEOFRE you buy it to assure that you get a car in working order. You can always find them at the monthly Networking Summits that Full Sail hosts as well.
I will be honest and say that I normally just go there for oil changes, but recently I had some brake issues, and they took care of me quite well. They always have deals on their website that you should take advantage of.
Great people, great service. If you need something fixed on your car that you can’t handle yourself, or just don’t have the time to do, check out Tuffy on Semoran Boulevard (SR 436) and tell them The Random Automotive sent you!
