Extremely helpful and accommodating folks at this shop. I was stuck with some complicated electrical problems due to some poor design of my Volvo wagon, and the mechanics here helped me out and even waived some of their extra labor costs. Highly recommend this shop!read more

Rob is the guy on this shop! We've been a customer for about 9 years now and he has never failed us. Very helpful and accommodating even on times when they're very busy. Now that we have moved to Coquitlam, I still go to this shop.read more

Had a great experience with these guys. Front-end was handled by Rob in a very courteous and friendly manner. My Toyota vehicle had several things that I knew it needed addressed, and after an inspection they were able to identify a number of them and quoted me prices that were much more affordable than Toyota Regency, so I got some work done & the original brake assessment/job I came for. Apparently, Toyota had forgotten a pin when installing something, which this Brake & Muffler was able to identify and replace!Rob did not charge me anything more than what we'd discussed over the phone (which was a very clear and straightforward conversation), and was kind enough to go the extra mile just to ensure that I had a safe and steady driving experience afterward (He said I should get both front and rear brakes adjusted; I said I'd only do front, and they did rear without charging me).Only thing is that I was left needing to align my tires afterward. No big deal for me.Had an overall positive experience, and will be going back to use their services again.read more

I just had a great experience with Rob Akehurst (owner/operator) at this Budget Brake and Muffler. I was at his competitor's location and had a terrible experience. I saw the Google and Yelp reviews and both rated this Service centre very high. I had some work that needed to get done and Rob came in at $70 lower than the lowest quote (4 quotes). I spoke with Rob about the work and he found me some parts that was on sale which I am familiar with. I went forward with the work and brought my car into his shop.Meeting Rob and speaking with him, I found him as a genuine person. A person who actually cares about his customers and their cars. I realize that he is a Good Human Being. I highly recommend this shop. I find trust is so important and I trust you will be treated more than fair.-------------------------------------------Update: July 10, 2018.I have to say the work done is top notch. No problems at all. Thanks ROB!-------------------------------------------Update:Nov 7, 2019Another 1st in Class Experience with you Rob.read more

What an amazing experience! My Husband has gone to this location before and told me about how he had great customer service. I’m terrible at maintaining my car and usually leave things till last min( I know I’m terrible). I called Budget and spoke with Rob, told him that my car is basically broken, booked an appointment and the entire proceed was so easy! Rob not only walked me through what needed to be done but also gave me his honest opinion. You can tell he isn’t just in it for the money and wants to provide a good atmosphere and experience. I don’t know much about cars but Rob made sure that I knew what was going on the entire time and what needed to be fixed in terms I’d understand. I’ll definitely be coming back here for my car needs, plus you get to see the cutest Rottweiler ever, why wouldn’t I want to come back!Thanks Rob and the Budget team!read more

I have taken my car to this place for the past three years. No one likes to take their cars to mechanics (including myself), but Rob and his friends make it a pleasant experience at the end of the day every time. They really take good care of their customers, and very well deserve a 5 star. Highly recommend this place! Rob, keep doing the excellent job!read more
