I always bring my Van to John at Budget Brake and Muffler in POCO, because he gives great service, and he even drove me back to my work after dropping off my Van. He didn't have to do that, but that is the type of service he offers.He always explains what is wrong in a way that I can understand(because I don't know anything about car repairs) and always calls me first to make sure I would like them to go ahead with the work suggested, and gives me the approx price, and it is usually the same as he quoted.Good service and friendliness is hard to find these days.read more

Wow! Absolutely outstanding service. I brought my car in and they were fast, professional and went above and beyond. They took time to explain everything. So impressed. I would not hesitate to recommend them. I am thrilled with the outcome. They took time to examine my car and did such nice finishing touches including making it smell so fresh when I picked it up. These mechanics are amazing!read more

I have been taking my car here for years and know I can always rely on John and his team! Everyone is very friendly, service is great and prices are tough to beat. As someone who isn’t handy when it comes to cars, I appreciate John because he will tell you as it is and give the same advice to you as he would give a family member. I’ll be taking my car here for many years to come!read more

We were referred to Budget Brake and Muffler on Westwood by a friend of ours about a year ago. My wife and I met John on our first visit and i have to say John is honest, has integrity and is fair. With John and his crew you can rest assured that you will be taken care of and not taken advantage. Cheers!!!read more

John & his team are amazing. They really know their stuff and they absolutely exceeded my expectations with my brake job, throwing in extras like an oil change and shiny new hubcaps! Highly recommend! Thank you John & your team for going above & beyond!!read more

Once upon a time, my husband and I were looking at buying a used car. We called a couple places to see if they would do inspections and most were really busy, but John, the owner of this Budget, offered to help as much as he could with information I could give him over the phone. I was so grateful he took the time to do that, especially knowing how busy he was that morning. He saved my husband and I time and money that we could put toward something better. I remembered him when my mom was looking for a new mechanic, and when we did get a car a few months later, I knew we had to go to him as well. Four and a half years later and John and his whole team are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. I especially like how they always take the time to explain everything and answer all your questions, and that they have little car models and an endless supply of helpful metaphors/references if you’re like me and don’t understand cars at all.read more

As someone who doesn't know much about vehicles, I have always felt uneasy to bring my car anywhere and be taken advantage of. However, John and his team are so knowledgeable, kind and honest about what services you need done. I am so grateful I have found this place and I will keep going as long as I am living in the Tri-cities.read more

What a great shop. John the owner was very, very helpful, and went above and beyond taking care of my Volkswagen Golf.. They gave me a very reasonable quote for my front brakes and did the work right away, and professionally. I told them my windshield washer tank was leaking and they fixed that, (thanks guys) and topped it up, no extra charge. They oiled my doors and fixed a brake light free of charge. It's always tough finding a good mechanic you can trust and this is it. Even the customer(s) in the shop said they wouldn't go anywhere else.See you again!read more

Had them replace my resonator/muffler pipe. They had it done quickly and for a fair price. Came out to my car and was super pleasantly surprised that they had given my foot mat a vacuum/wash! 10/10 would go here again!read more
