I started using them recently after having a muffler repair issue. They ended up fixing it for less than they originally quoted which never happens. I since then have been back for my brakes and new custom muffler.

I have also sent my sister and mom there for there tune ups and brake issues.

Keep up the good work guys, you have a customer for life!!!



Great Auto Shop

I went here for a Brake Job & Fuel Injection cleaning on my 2001 Ford Expedition. I received a great deal on the repairs & maintenance & my truck has run flawlessly ever since. I also go to Budget for super affordable oil changes. I have found my Auto Shop 4 Life!!!!!



Great Service and Prices.

I've been going to this shop for over five years. They take care of all my vehicle maintenance needs. I've gotten two peformance exhaust installations, a Chevy Tahoe Transmission replaced, suspension work, tires, and all of my regular tune up services. They do great work and a price you can't beat.



Great Shop

I first met Mike about 30 years ago when he worked at a tire shop not far from where they are now.

I couldn't believe how well I was treated by him that first day and we have been good friends ever since.

I used to own a Service Station in the area and would have Mike

take care of all of my Alignments, Mufflers and I would even buy

tires from him. I knew Mike would be successful when he decided to go out on his own, as he is so honest and up front with everybody that he deals with.

I encourage you to start using Mike and Allen for all of your automotive needs.

Great Service and Price

Prior to my visit here, I received several quotes from other shops. I ended up at Budget Muffler & Brake and the work was done in a timely manner for a very fair price. Mike even gave me a ride home while the work was done. I highly recommend Budget Muffler and Brake.



Awesome customer service

I came in needing some work on my car because it wasn't driving right. Being a girl who doesn't really know much about cars I was expecting to get the run through of all the nonsense that they could tack on. They didn't do it at all. Allen explained everything to me and even showed me so I could understand. I would recommend this place to everyone. They are very nice, fast, and very fair priced (better than everyone else who quoted me).

AWESOME! Great prices and amazing work!

I came in here because my muffler was falling off my truck and I got refereed to Allen through a friend. Allen gave me few different options from mild to wild. I decided to improve my system to a performance system and love it.

I then called around and found that they gave me a super deal by beating the best price I found by nearly $75.

I have since been back a few times for brake and front end work. I also send the ladies in my family there for a no hassle situation!

Thanks for the work!
