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

Had an exhaust system installed at this location due to some rusted out bolts.... I was provided excellent service right away and they managed to get me back on the road within an hour or two. For a very reasonable price at that! Will be remembering this location for future work!read more

John took the time to ask relevant questions and provided information over the... phone. I got an appointment easily on short notice. They were fast, efficient, and communicated honestly. Excellent knowledge, customer service, and professionalism. John went well above and beyond my expectations. 11 out of 10.read more

Amazing! Extremely friendly, professional, and great value! I usually do my own... work on my car but the exhaust leak turned into a broken rusted pipe at a weld joint and a flange... a bit out of my hands. John and his crew were able to take care of it within a short amount of time and at a great price! I highly recommend this place!read more

These guys are beyond fantastic! Any issue I've encountered with my car has... always been explained honestly and openly here. I really like the environment- from the start you always are treated exceptionally here. It's lady friendly, and I will definitely keep coming back, or recommend them to any of my friends and family. Thanks John and staff for all your help with my Tiguan.read more

We have been using John and his team for over 20 years. He takes care of all... our cars including our children's vehicle's and our speciality wheelchair van. The team is honest and reliable. They ALWAYS exceed our expectations. Mechanics typically make me feel intimidated but John will walk me through every step until I understand what is needed. His team are easy to talk with like you are talking with a friend who happens to be a mechanic. They always look for anything that could be a safety issue so I feel confident my children are safe traveling in their own vehicles.Thank you team!read more

I've been to many auto mechanic shops over the years and this is the only shop... I come back to time and time again. Excellent customer service, very time efficient and reasonably priced. Not to mention free smiles!! John always takes the time to explain things in detail and is a very honest businessman.John and his staff do quality, honest work and do NOT sell you stuff you do not need to make an extra dollar off of you.I would highly recommend John and his staff to anyone looking for top notch service.Thank you very much John for going the extra mile once again today.read more

John and his team might be the most genuine people I've ever met.I came in... with a car today with no appointment and told them my situation. I needed to have an inspection done. John instantly left the front desk and began working on the car. His team work swiftly and efficiently and was done the inspection in about 30 minutes.Amazing service and hospitality. Definitely will be coming back.read more

Do you know how hard it is to find a mechanic you trust and who cares, not only... about cars, but about customers?I can honestly say, I doubt I'll ever go to a different shop for work on my vehicle. John and his team are the real deal, dedicated, reasonable, honest and they'll bend over backwards to get you what you need.Even if, like us, the diagnosis on the car is that it's not worth fixing, John made the experience as pleasant of one as he was able to. Can't recommend this shop enough. Really.read more
