The guys and gals at Budget Brake and Muffler are super chill and relaxed, know what they’re doing, and even taught me - a total car dummy - a bit about the stuff that my car was in for and some other topics. They were very helpful and got my appointment scheduled quickly and once I showed up instantly got to work on my car.read more

I have been taking my vehicles to Ryan & team at Budget for ~20 years now. "Honest" and "Fair" are the words I would describe them with. Can't imagine taking our vehicles anywhere else....read more

They have worked on all my cars over the last year or so & I have been extremely impressed. They have gone above and beyond lately to make sure I was happy and deal with issues on my car which I have not seen at any other shop. Reasonably prices & extremely honest. Will also do their best to get you in even though they are so busy.read more

I find Budget Brake and Muffler ran by Ryan, is incredible for fixing concerns for a reasonable price. If something can last awhile, they will tell you if you can wait on it till you can afford to fix it or is a serious safety issue and fix now. I've been with these guys for years and never consider going anywhere else, it's that good!read more

Brought my car in for a service—staff were all fair, friendly, and professional. Two weeks later the car started making a funny sound two days before I was going to drive it cross country. They were able to accommodate me coming in the same day I called, and fixed the problem. When I came to pick up the car I wasn’t charged anything for the fix, and Ryan even explained how to retorque my tires during the trip. I was not only treated very well here, the staff went above and beyond for me and I’m so grateful. If you need your car repaired in Victoria, I can’t recommend this place enough.read more

Highly recommend, they went above and beyond for a car coming from out of province. Work was done affordably and quickly, at a third of the price quoted at another mechanic. Ryan and his team were great. Zero complaints.read more

Fantastic experience, what a great relief. I was referred by Malibu Motors (also awesome), got an appointment directly, then I was able to reschedule last minute, and then received friendly service, promptly done, at a cheaper cost than I expected. They have a cozy customer lounge waiting room that was a lifesaver, as my four year old got to watch cartoons while I used the WiFi ??read more

Note from a Happy Customer

I came to this budget brake and muffler without much expectation. I live on Pender Island where I usually go to a local mechanic, but it takes longer to get things done by the time they pick up parts from Victoria and my brakes were grinding badly, so I came here expecting it to be faster. What I wasn’t expecting was the price to be a third of what the local guy would’ve charged me. I am the happiest person in a waiting room today I think. The guys at  the desk are super nice, the waiting room has a phone charger for me to use, there’s coffee. I’m a very happy customer and will be returning here for sure. 

That said, your website isn’t as mobile friendly as it could be 😉

Anyways, kudos to the guys at Budget Brake and Muffler on Douglas in Victoria.
