I took my car into Budget this week for servicing after being referred by a... family member. John was incredibly knowledgeable and transparent throughout the process. He helped discern between what needed to be fixed now and what wasn't as urgent. Not only did they fix my car's issues, but John also took the time to educate me on what to look for under the hood of my car going forward.This was the best experience i've ever had getting my car repaired. I am very happy with their work and will return in the future!read more

I’ve found my new go to shop! When I first called, John explained everything... that was needed and why. He was friendly and professional, and that carried over to my appointment. The service technicians were also friendly and made sure I knew what to expect after the work was completed. And they were quick as well. Best experience at this kind of business ever. Thank you!read more

Just like to say a big thank you to the gang at budget. Had a spongy pedal and... they did a thorough diagnosis, TWICE! By doing that they found the core problem and the cost was much less than first anticipated. Where do you get service like that?! This is why I always go to them and highly recommend to people I know. Thanks again to John and his crew.read more

Outstanding customer service, definitely above and beyond. John went out of his... way to fit both my husband and I in without appointments (oil change and full service) on a busy Saturday. He also had them buff out a nasty wheel rub on my front door panel without us asking. On more than one occasion he gave up sales and told us the service wasn’t needed. I understand why they get such great reviews. We won’t go anywhere else now for anything maintenance related.read more

Showed me diagrams and exactly where in the car while it was running.Honda quoted me $1300 and they quoted me $350.So happy to have found my go-to car place!read more

I live in Whistler and plan my vehicle's maintenance around my trips to the... lower mainland to see John, Bobby and the staff at Westwood Budget. I have been going to see them for years and have even towed my car 150+ kms so that they can get to it. There is nothing better than a mechanic that you can trust to do the job right, quickly and give you peace of mind that they aren't out to rip you off.As long as I have a truck or car that needs work. I'll be going to Budget and will continue to tell my friends to do the same.read more

UPDATE: I have been taking my vehicles here for the past several years. I feel... very grateful to have found a shop that is so trustworthy and reliable. All the staff that I have dealt with have been amazing. I am always treated with respect and never ever feel taken advantage of. What peace of mind it is to know that you can make the call, get the work done, and trust that they do right by you. I very, very highly recommend John and his staff to anyone without hesitation.PREVIOUS REVIEW: I brought my car in to get the brakes done. I couldn't believe the excellent service I received. John showed me my brakes and explained in great detail what was going on. My car was ready in record time, and John went the extra mile for me. I am usually frustrated trying to find good car repair businesses and I feel that I have finally found an extremely trustworthy place to take my car. Thank you, John.read more
