Called in to set up a diagnostic appointment for my car and John talked to me over the phone about the issue and told me to not waste my money on a big fix. Other shops would have just made the appointment and charged me >$100 to tell me that. Really helpful and honest guy and I will be using them from now on!read more

John and his team are fantastic humans. I’ve dealt with them a few times now. I had to write a review as this experience was one of the greatest customer experiences I’ve ever had. On moving day to Vancouver island - I managed to crunch my muffler and other important car parts. I called him in a panic and he advised me to get there right away. The team got my car in immediately as they knew I had limited time before I had to catch a ferry. They had my car in and out in 10 minutes with a temporary fix so I could at least drive my car to my new destination and not have to leave it behind. Moving is stressful enough and messing up my car just added to the pile of concerns I already had. With their support - I couldn’t have felt more valued or appreciated as a customer and as a person in general. With any car problems in the tri-city area make them your first call. Thank you to John and the team for everything you did to make that day easier for me. I will never forget it. Angela.read more

As other reviews have stated, John is friendly, knowledgeable, transparent, trustworthy and goes the extra mile. I've taken my car here 3 times over the past few weeks and I've been consistently impressed with the service. The problems get fixed, and in a timely manner at that. I remain informed throughout the process about what my options are, what needs to be done, and what the costs will be. The first time I took the car in, John took a couple of hours off of the labour costs, which saved me quite a bit of money. I didn't even haggle, he just did it! The second and third times, I was having my tires put onto new rims. I opted not to get hub caps because I was being cheap. When I arrived to pick the car up, I saw there were new hub caps on the car. He threw them in free of charge! I drive a somewhat older vehicle, so having a reliable mechanic has really given me peace of mind. Thanks John and co.! I chose to take my car here because of the Google reviews, and now I recommend this place to everyone. If you need work done on your car, give this place a shot. You won't be disappointed.read more

My car had a leaking exhaust pipe that needed to be fixed and I wanted to take it somewhere local. I ended up deciding on the Westwood Budget Brake & Muffler after reading so many overwhelmingly positive reviews. I can definitely say that they did not disappoint. John and his team were exceptional, I really appreciated how well they took care of me, and how they went above and beyond to make sure that my car was leaving their shop in the best possible condition it could. This included helping me source and repair a broken spring, as well as a rear shock that was leaking (two things that were missed by my dealership only a week ago). All throughout the process, they took the time to explain things to me, and even smoothed out a warped brake drum and fixed my squeaking belt at no extra cost. I really value the attention to detail that they showed when repairing my car and I'll definitely be returning for future maintenance.read more

Walked in expecting to book an appointment for the following week, and left no more than half an hour later with my brakes serviced, my tires rotated, and little more knowledgeable about my car! John and Bobby were fantastic. Very professional, very kind and excellent customer service. Not an intimidating environment at all, and appreciate that they took the time to educate us on what was wrong with my brakes. You have gained a life-long customer as far as I'm concerned, and we will definitely speak highly of you and recommend your business to anyone who needs help with their vehicle! Thank you guys!read more

John was recommended to me by a close personal friend and I can't thank her enough for that. Service was quick, affordable and beyond friendly. The tire change came with a wash and I would highly recommend this place.read more

John (owner) was very helpful and explained everything really well. He even gave me a breakdown of different quotes so I could decide what I could afford to do. They did the job promptly and professional as well as went the distance by fixing a problematic window free of charge. HIGHLY recommend and will use their services again.read more
