Definitely coming back to this location! They saved me several hundred dollars. Pep Boys told me I needed new brakes, so I went to Tuffys to compare prices. When I brought my car in, they were honest,... and told me I still have over 10,000 miles before I need new brakes! Thank you!! See More

I just turned over 200,000 miles on my GMC van thanks to Tuffy of Destin! They have kept my van in good running condition since I purchased it new. I'm going to keep driving for another 100,000 miles.

My family and I were vacationing in Pensacola and decided to drive to Destin for the day. While in stop and go traffic, I noticed my car had started to overheat. This continued and only got worse as ...we tried to figure out where to go to have the car looked at. My son found Tuffy's on his phone and it happened to be the closest to where we were. I explained the issues and while nervously waiting while it was being looked at a gentleman came in and struck up a conversation with me. Turns out he was the owner. The issue ended up being a leaking water pump...not good news. They told me it was 12 hours labor. I knew we had to get back to Pensacola so I asked if it could it there to have it fixed somewhere. The owner offered to come and get it himself the next day and then drive it back once it was fixed. They topped off the coolant and had me stop to have it rechecked at the Tuffy's in Gulf Breeze. After talking to my mechanic at home that evening and realizing I could likely have the work done for less there, the manager at Tuffy's came down on their original quote. It took literally an entire day and I didn't get the car back until that night, but I drove it back to Tennessee with no issues. See More

Booked an appointment over the phone. They looked at my truck on time, fixed the issue in a timely manner, and haven’t had a problem since. Definitely will be going back if I have future issues.

I drive all the way from Niceville just to get my needed services from here. That's how much I love it. Way better than the others by far. Every time I come in I'm greeted positively, out in about 30m...inutes, and the prices are wonderful. Outstanding customer service as I had a request to put my new license plate on(didn't have the right size tool) and without hesitation they did it for me along with the other services needed.

I will recommend this location to everyone I know in this area. Chase is one of the nicest people I've met, and his customer service is impeccable. He and his staff seem to have a great working relati...onship and the energy they presented was fun and lighthearted while still being professional. They were pretty backed up today, and they still got me in and out in under an hour and a half. Fair prices, professional service, and they made me laugh. It was a pleasure giving them my business today. Keep up the good work, gentlemen. See More

Tuffy Tire & Auto Service in Destin were extremely professional and helpful when we had to have an oil change and other services completed on our vehicle. They greeted us when we arrived, were helpfu...l fully explaining the prices and suggested services needed... They went above and beyond to make this an easy experience for our family. I would recommend this Auto Service Center in Destin to my friends and family. They've earned a loyal customer from us. See More

Chason is one big reason I will always go to this Tuffys. He provides best in class customer service, and is honest. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and committed to his customers. Chason is also a company man. He makes sure his employees are taken care of and happy. I recommend Tuffys of Destin as long as Chason is working and advancing there. See More

I was visiting my Daughter Brie in Destin, and she had a coupon flyer on her table from Tuffy in Destin. I had been pricing windshield wiper blades at Discount Auto part stores and had found out they... were ridiculously over priced! As much as $34.00 each!! Sticker shock is where I was at! Of course it had been raining for a few days, that lovely liquid sunshine N.W.F. is famous for, and the streak my current blades were leaving had simply gotten to where It was driving me crazy! So without an appointment and a BOGO coupon, I just showed up and was treated like a queen! Fresh coffee, a friendly kitty cat, a clean waiting area with reading material galore. I was blessed with a great price, super fast quality service, not to mention even with paying them labor, it was cheaper than doing it myself! Thank you God for leading me to a great place, where I will return before the end of the month, because I got another coupon, this time an oil change! See More

We are from Nashville and our van unexpectedly broke down as we were leaving to drive home after vacationing for week at the beach. We were towed to Tuffys 30 min before closing on a Saturday. We were... told that we would have to wait for a fix on Monday, but Jay looked at our van, created a missing part out of spare parts, stayed an hour after closing to make sure we wouldn't be stranded and miraculously fixed our van and sent us on our way home!! The whole staff was kind and generous and gracious to us! We are beyond grateful! To God be the glory! See More

I dropped my car off on Saturday at 11:30 AM for an ESTIMATE. Since no one had called me and their location was about to close for the day, I had to call them and was told the tech working on the car ...left before they even closed and no one could tell me anything at the moment. But I was promised to be called by 8AM the next morning with an update. At 9:30 AM, I had to call them.. Again. Surprise surprise, the tech wasn't in on Sundays and so again no one could tell me anything. All of Monday passes and I get a voicemail at 5:30 PM notifying me that they have ordered a part to see if it will fix the problem and it will be in on Tuesday. Not a peep from open to close on Tuesday. So here it is Wednesday morning and I'm still waiting for someone to call me with an update, an estimate, anything! The worst communication skills I have ever dealt with. I have been a loyal customer for 2 years, but I must say they've lost my business in the future with this one. I've been without a car for almost 5 days and I have not even received an apology. I'm extremely displeased to say the least. See More

Would not even give 1 star but it seems I have too. These guys charged me $104 for a "diagnose fee" .. then told me my Infiniti needed $2,200 worth of work ! That is ok they said, they would sign me ...up for the Tuffy Credit card! HAHA! I took it down the road and was in and out within two hours and was only charged $175. Please do not go here. The most dishonest people I have ever met. I am not sure how or why this place is still in business. Locals and tourists alike be aware. See More

My tailpipe on my rv broke off while on vacation . The staff saw me immediately and ordered the parts. Once the parts were in they scheduled me asap. The staff members were very professional and the p...rice was reasonable. I don't know about other Tuffy locations but I can recommend the one in Destin. See More

Made an appointment for 9am, it's now almost 11 and my car hasn't even been touched. I'm not expecting any miracles, but maybe don't take the 10am appt before the 9am one. Or be more realistic when s...cheduling appointments. Not everyone has 3 hours to sit. See More

In and out service for some nitrogen in my tires. That's why they are the only ones other than the dealership touching my car.

If you find yourself filling your tires regularly, you could have a bent rim. Changes in temperature also contribute to tire pressure loss—every 10-degree drop equates to about one PSI. So be sure to check your tires regularly, and if they’re consistently low, bring your vehicle to Tuffy. We’ve got the equipment and expertise to diagnose the problem and get you back on the road in no time.
