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

Outstanding performance all around! I brought my car in for a clutch repair and... I couldn't be happier with the service I received form John and his team at the Westwood location. From experienced staff to a family feel environment I was able to ask questions, receive text pictures about progress, and timely service to get my car back quickly. They even detailed and washed my car at the end. I've never had a mechanic actually show me the parts they took out so I could ensure that what was being done was necessary. It's so hard finding reliable service in the automotive industry. Look no further than this place. Top shelf performance all the way! Thank you Westwood team!read more

Every time I have gone to this location the service has been great and the... price has been hard to beat. They are always friendly and knowledgeable. Mark helped me out with my brakes, but the thing that blew me away was that he took the time to show me what each item was, how it worked and what I should be looking out for in the future. I really appreciated the extra time he took. I came here years ago because someone recommended it, and now I'm recommending it to everyoneread more

Exceptional service, I highly recommend this shop. Polite with great... hospitality. They even washed my car after completing the work that needed to be done. John also gave me the best advice he could and squeezed me in many times to get cars inspected when I was looking for a new vehicle. Which he has now helped me to fix up! John and his team are reasonable, honest and so flexible, can’t ask for much more in a great mechanic!read more

I recently had brakes done and an oil change and I was very pleased with the... service. John made sure my SUV was road-worthy for an emergency road trip my daughter was making. He even put on new windshield wipers free of charge, as he was concerned they were not in the best condition should inclement weather arise along the way and gave my car a wash as well!I appreciate the care and concern shown and level of detail, and have and will recommend John and his team at Budget Brake & Muffler to others!

This is one of those mechanics shops you hope you find in your life. Family... owned and operated means the owner is there and is hands on. You get straight forward, friendly service and good work. Look in the back and it’s a happy shop with all the guys working together. They put an upgraded exhaust system on my vehicle and the work was top-notch...and fast. Very competitive price too.read more

Brought my car in to have an inspection done after I noticed some shaking at... the wheel when breaking. Mark Chang was able to squeeze me in early when I arrived ahead of schedule, since he had a few no shows. After he took it for a test drive and into the shop, he brought me over and showed me everything that was going on and explained what needed fixing and what didn't. He didn't even charge me for the inspection, which really blew me away! Super nice guy, knowledgeable, quick, and efficient. I would definitely trust Mark and the guys for any of my automotive needs. 10/10 would recommend this shop to anyone. Thanks again, Mark!read more
