John and his team go above and beyond. I will never take my car anywhere else... again.I took my car in after taking it to the dealership 3 times where they couldn’t figure out the problem over a 4 month period. Brought it in to John and he trouble shooted a few things. The first attempt was a valve switch - he didn’t even charge me as a trial and said to come back if that didn’t work and the check engine light turned back on. He ordered the part just in case. So when the light came back on the next day. I called he fixed it and my car is Finally running beautifully.Going to budget brakes is like going to a small town family mechanic. They treat you like family and it’s refreshing. Try them out you won’t be dissapointed.read more

John is not only the best mechanic in town but he is also the nicest & kindest... mechanic I have ever dealt with! Car broke down in Vancouver yesterday and by the time I commuted back to his shop, roughly 2 hours, my car was fixed and ready to go! The awesome guys he has working for him even washed my car!!read more

It was such a pleasure dealing with john and his shop. As i picked up my car... up, i heard another customer say to john “you've gotta be just the nicest guy” when john was going the extra mile for that customer. I thought to myself, yup, i concur with that thought. John and his shop will get more of my business in the future !read more

I have not brought my vehicle to John as of yet. But I can tell you, the... service I got on the phone was OUTSTANDING! And, by the reviews I'm reading I already know I'm going to 5 star this business. John was incredibly helpful over the phone, explaining everything I needed to know about getting my catalytic converter replaced after being cut out. John gave me the entire run down of what needs to happen, and even explained the ICBC side of things (which he shouldn't have to, it's ICBC's job to do that). Looking forward to getting my car back! Thanks John and staff!**Edit for after service**OMG. John and his staff are FANTASTIC!I was offered a ride home after dropping my car off. John said that he would call me when the repairs were done. I received a call at around 950am. My car was fixed! I was also quoted a price to fix the car and when told how much it was, it was almost 1/2 the price from the quote.The service is/was INCREDIBLE. I will be telling everyone I know to come here for service.John and Staff, thank you! You have all gone above and beyond!read more
