I was referred to Budget B&M by a dealership who said that I could trust Budget to do a great job. I can't overstate how impressed I am by the service and prices. I recommend them without hesitation.read more

On a cold February morning at 5:30 am, my truck wouldn't start. I thought about calling a tow truck, but instead, waited until Budget Brake & Muffler on Westwood opened at 8 am. John answered, and within 10 minutes, he and one of his mechanics drove to my apartment in PoCo, jump-started my vehicle, and drove it away, promising to bring it back later. I've been getting my truck serviced and repaired at this Budget Brake and Muffler since 2016, and I can't ever remember getting this kind of service from any business I've ever used. I've been driving a vehicle for 40 years, and while lots of service people are polite, John and his staff go above and beyond! They treat everyone with courtesy and respect, and they always explain what they've done, how it works, and how long it will last. No question is too dumb or irrelevant. And if the work is something they don't do, John will refer someone as trustworthy and competent as he and his staff. Customer service is amazing!Thanks John!read more

This shop is excellent! Today my car wouldn't start in the grocery store parking lot, and within an hour and a half of contacting them I was driving away from their shop with a new starter and a smile on my face. First they drove out to see if they could boost my battery to get me to the shop, and when that didn't work they recommended a nearby towing company that showed up within minutes. They had a quote ready by the time my car arrived, and after confirming that the starter was the issue, they replaced it promptly, despite being busy already, so that I could get on with my day. The service was above and beyond what I expected, with friendly staff that go out of their way.read more

Had a great first experience here. Our car was making some unhealthy noises so we brought it in and they went for a drive with us and got it diagnosed right away. We needed both front and rear brakes replaced. The problems were fully explained and shown to us before we committed to having anything done. We brought our car in just before closing and had it back by 10:30am the next day. They even gave us a loaner vehicle while ours was at the shop. Excellent customer service from the owner and all the staff. We will definitely return. Thank you!!!read more

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
