Very frightening experience with these guys...not one to complain but I felt it necessary to share:
had them do my brakes a couple weeks ago - shortly after the brakes were done I noticed a wheel noise that continue to get worse and louder over the next days... so I took it in to have it checked out... they said i needed a new wheel bearing, a new transmission put in and a new clutch kit... $3000!! I decided to get a few more opinions on that because ...that's a lot of money! You know what it ended up being? When they put the front brake pads and rotors in...and put the front tires back in, they forgot to tighten the front left lug nuts ---the wheel could have literally fallen off at any time and i am not kidding. Got the lug nuts tightened, no noise, nothing wrong with the transmission or a bearing or anything.
Please find a refered mechanic, these guys named everything in the book except what was actually the cause of the wheel noise.

Oh my gosh please be careful!\r
I've been going to this Tuffy since 2005 and it was a great plece-- I've noticed that place deteriorating over the last couple years and over-charging, adding extra things here and there. Well I had tire noise - they said wheel bearing and need new transmission and clutch. $3000\r
I decided to get several other opinions. You know what it really was - loose lug nuts. The tire was about to fall off at anytime. that's it. Free. You know why they were loose? Tuffy.\r
do not trust these people.
