    “I moved to Cedar Rapids over 15 years ago and looked for a business that could service my car rather than a dealership. Tuffy on 1st Ave has been servicing my vehicles for many years. I find their customer service exceptional! ”

    “I’ve been taking my vehicles to Tuffy’s for a long time. Recently they changed my oil, checked all fluids and found the battery cables were getting corroded. Normally lt’s a $ 30 fix but they went ahead and fixed it and didn’t charge me. They consistently earn my business.Mark”
