Honest and Fair Pricing. Brian took good care of us and had us back on the road in a few days and helped us set up a rental car.

A friend of mine went to Aamco and she was told that she needed a new transmission. I sent her to Budget for a FREE Check up and they did a trans service and shift selenoid and it fixed all her problems.

Very Nice People - Car works Good

It was a pleasure to deal with Brian. He was kind and took time to explain what I needed and how much it would cost, most of the other people I called where rude and acted like I was wasting their time. I also like the fact that he gave me a free tow in to the shop and a free check up. Other shops wanted to charge me just to tell me what was wrong with my car.

I had Budget rebuild my transmission and I have had no problems.

Very poor business practices, they do not protect your property and when something happens they do not want to take any responsibility for the damage. I took my truck in to them, due to a bad transmission. They told me it would need a new rebuilt transmission and it would cost $ 2700.00 to do it. I told them I did not have the money and it would be a few weeks before I had the money. They told me that was ok, I could leave it there they would do the work and then I could pick it back up when I had the money. They told me they had plenty of room to keep the truck there rather than bring it back when I had the money to do the work. While my truck was there it got damaged, someone hit the rear driver fender and damaged the fiberglass fender. I picked up the truck and drove it to Riverside, and that evening I noticed the damage. The first thing the next morning I took it back to them he said that they would review there cameras to see how and when the damage occurred. I waited almost a week and they never got back to me to let me know what they found. I went in to see about the damage and he said that the cameras did not show anything. Rather than calling me to let me know he just figured I would go away. I am very disappointed in there actions. This not only makes me mad, but he has also lost additional work as I have another truck that needs a transmission and they will never get that work as A result of all the hassle they have put me through. If you are going to take your vehicle to them be forewarned they do not car it they damage your vehicle. Very poor business practices..... I am telling everybody to go elsewhere to have there vehicles repaired. As this is a transmission most of the time you will have to leave your vehicle there a days at a time and a lot can and does happen there.

Had my breaks done here, after a few months there was a problem with glazing on the rotors and pads. Kim, the CEO, personally came to my business, picked the car up, and replaced the pads - and turned the rotors - at no charge! Now that is customer service! Then she returned the car to my business-excellent job Kim! We highly recommend this family owned shop-excellent, honorable & friendly people: Grade: A+

Great Service, Nice Honest People. Thank you, I will see you again.



Stay away! These people are liars...

The car is a 1993 Acura Integra manual transmission.

Went through about 4 rebuilds (at Budget) before they just got a completely different tranny for my car and put it in. It still grinded going to 4th gear. I took the car back to them a couple more times with the new tranny and it STILL grinds 4th gear. I gave up on that.

I also paid them to put a new speedometer cable in the car. I bought an OEM cable from Honda, gave them the part and trusted them to do it. 2 weeks later, when my speedo stopped working and my check engine light had come on, I popped the hood to see what was up. The OLD speedo cable was still there, and they had barely pushed it down into the speedo sensor. It had worked it's way loose. What's more, I discovered that my speedo sensor was just sitting loosely in the top of the tranny. Turns out they had broken the tab off where the bolt holds it in.

Most emphatically NOT RECOMMENDED. BE CAREFUL!!! Obviously, their mechanics are lazy and could care less about their work. They just want to hurry up and get done. Whether your car is fixed properly or not.

I called them about it, and the guy there said to bring it in and they'd look at it. But I'm done with those guys. Obviously, if I want anything done right, I have to do it myself. When this tranny dies, I'll rebuild it myself. Until then, I have to double clutch 4th gear, and my speedo cable rattles up a storm.

AVOID THESE PEOPLE! They suck big time.
