I recently had brakes done and an oil change and I was very pleased with the... service. John made sure my SUV was road-worthy for an emergency road trip my daughter was making. He even put on new windshield wipers free of charge, as he was concerned they were not in the best condition should inclement weather arise along the way and gave my car a wash as well!I appreciate the care and concern shown and level of detail, and have and will recommend John and his team at Budget Brake & Muffler to others!

This is one of those mechanics shops you hope you find in your life. Family... owned and operated means the owner is there and is hands on. You get straight forward, friendly service and good work. Look in the back and it’s a happy shop with all the guys working together. They put an upgraded exhaust system on my vehicle and the work was top-notch...and fast. Very competitive price too.read more

Brought my car in to have an inspection done after I noticed some shaking at... the wheel when breaking. Mark Chang was able to squeeze me in early when I arrived ahead of schedule, since he had a few no shows. After he took it for a test drive and into the shop, he brought me over and showed me everything that was going on and explained what needed fixing and what didn't. He didn't even charge me for the inspection, which really blew me away! Super nice guy, knowledgeable, quick, and efficient. I would definitely trust Mark and the guys for any of my automotive needs. 10/10 would recommend this shop to anyone. Thanks again, Mark!read more

We have dealt with John for years and several different vehicles. The things... that make John and Budget a great company to deal with are:- for me being female with no car knowledge, he explains everything, he treats me with respect and addresses all my concerns- for my husband it is that they do quality work- with my last vehicle, when it was on its last legs he did everything to keep it running until I was ready to replace but always watching the cost for me- One time I got a phone call from him to tell me he had been researching something that he wanted to try, next time I was by.... my car was running fine but he was still looking for ways to keep it running for me. How amazing is that- my whole family deals with him, not only do we get great service, quality work, at a reasonable price, but they care and that keeps us coming backread more

I went to Budget as a recommendation from a friend. Mark Chang went out of his... way to check beyond the job at hand to ensure my brakes were functioning at their best. He even "tweaked" a few very important things at no additional cost. I am very happy with the very fair price and professionalism at this location! I highly recommend Mark to take care of your brake needs.read more

As an older woman with a truck I love I was desperate to find a 100% RELIABLE... place to have my vehicle taken care of. A place where I can absolutely TRUST the mechanics NOT to gouge me and know without a single doubt they are EXCELLENT at their jobs and will take GREAT care of my vehicle. Our whole family have trusted JOHN and his entire staff with all our vehicles for years and after just having another oil change and check up will continue to entrust all our service and repair needs to BUDGET !read more

John is seriously the best guy ever. These mechanics are amazing and are the... reason I was able to get my first car. They’re so kind, always on time, and professional. I moved to Victoria and I still call John when something happens with my car and he’s so helpful and always has time for his costumers. Best place to get anything done for your car.read more
