John went above and beyond to make my experience amazing. Had a muffler... emergency and he was able to fix the issue at a great price and quickly. Even picked me up at the skytrain station to get my car back.read more

I rarely ever write reviews but after what happened this morning there is no... way I can't. Yesterday afternoon I arrived home and could smell burning brakes. My rear caliper had seized. I called the shop and I was told that they were fully booked the next day but they asked me to bring the Jeep in anyway and they said they would try to take a look at it between jobs. I arrived at 9am and at 11am the Jeep was fixed and ready to go. Not only did they replace the caliper but they also checked all the brakes and even the air pressure on my spare, which was flat!Crazy amazing service....something we seldom see anymore.Thank you guys!Rayread more

John and the whole team at Budget on Westwood is outstanding. Their customer... service is incredible. I brought my first car in to them for an inspection before purchasing and have continued going to them ever since. Echoing other reviews here - they’ve been there to help in emergency situations, and also been there for standard oil changes and maintenance over the years, and have done all of this efficiently and with care. They take the time to fully explain any suggested repairs or work needed, and never add any pressure to add on additional work. They are incredibly honest. I’ve since moved out of Coquitlam but continue making the trip to this location for all of my car needs, I can’t recommend them enough!read more

A couple weeks ago, the temperature warning light was flashing on my dash. My... car's radiator has a tiny crack and another auto shop said that I can just occasionally top up the coolant. I was close to Budget Brake and Muffler and called to see if I could bring my car in. John answered and said that I can bring my car in right away. His team topped up the coolant and did a safety check to make sure that my car was safe. At the end, John did not charge for any services. Fantastic service!read more
