These guys really bailed me out. I was visiting from SW Washington on vacation,... when my Tahoe starte making some real bad metal to metal rubbing noise. Most places were telling me several day until the could even look at it, but Budget and crew ook me right in, three of them were on the job, and found a pebble lodged in between my dust guard and rotor that I guess I picked up on the gravel road going up the the KVR Trestle trail. They were not even going to charge, so I just got some recommended lube servvices to patronize them. I was out the door in just over an hour and they salvaved the rest of our trip and 600 mile drive home! Guy at the counter helping out was Matt I think?!....highly recommend honest place to go, Thanks again!!read more

I always take my cars to Budget in Port Coquitlam (John Sinkie is the best),... but I was on vacation in Kelowna and had run several hundred kilometers beyond the due mileage. Called Budget, they found me a spot in their busy schedule, and took care of my car with the same quality of service that I always get. And they charge very reasonably. I do recommend them to anyone in Kelowna and would return for sure if I am there and my car needs their service.read more

Carlos is the guy who know cars in Kelowna!

These days you almost need an engineering degree to work on new vehicles, it just so happens I have one! It is key to continue adapting to new technology through continued education and updated tooling and software to stay relevant in today’s automotive industry. I am very lucky to be in Kelowna and glad to give people a place they can call their own. A place where your automotive needs are addressed even if they don’t fit into a “check box”. Einstein once said “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” I remind myself everyday that the quality of life I enjoy is based on the labours of others and therefore, give my best as a technician, as a business owner and as a father everyday to do my part and contribute to my community.
