Had a great experience with these guys. Front-end was handled by Rob in a very courteous and friendly manner. My Toyota vehicle had several things that I knew it needed addressed, and after an inspection they were able to identify a number of them and quoted me prices that were much more affordable than Toyota Regency, so I got some work done & the original brake assessment/job I came for. Apparently, Toyota had forgotten a pin when installing something, which this Brake & Muffler was able to identify and replace!Rob did not charge me anything more than what we'd discussed over the phone (which was a very clear and straightforward conversation), and was kind enough to go the extra mile just to ensure that I had a safe and steady driving experience afterward (He said I should get both front and rear brakes adjusted; I said I'd only do front, and they did rear without charging me).Only thing is that I was left needing to align my tires afterward. No big deal for me.Had an overall positive experience, and will be going back to use their services again.read more

I just had a great experience with Rob Akehurst (owner/operator) at this Budget Brake and Muffler. I was at his competitor's location and had a terrible experience. I saw the Google and Yelp reviews and both rated this Service centre very high. I had some work that needed to get done and Rob came in at $70 lower than the lowest quote (4 quotes). I spoke with Rob about the work and he found me some parts that was on sale which I am familiar with. I went forward with the work and brought my car into his shop.Meeting Rob and speaking with him, I found him as a genuine person. A person who actually cares about his customers and their cars. I realize that he is a Good Human Being. I highly recommend this shop. I find trust is so important and I trust you will be treated more than fair.-------------------------------------------Update: July 10, 2018.I have to say the work done is top notch. No problems at all. Thanks ROB!-------------------------------------------Update:Nov 7, 2019Another 1st in Class Experience with you Rob.read more

What an amazing experience! My Husband has gone to this location before and told me about how he had great customer service. I’m terrible at maintaining my car and usually leave things till last min( I know I’m terrible). I called Budget and spoke with Rob, told him that my car is basically broken, booked an appointment and the entire proceed was so easy! Rob not only walked me through what needed to be done but also gave me his honest opinion. You can tell he isn’t just in it for the money and wants to provide a good atmosphere and experience. I don’t know much about cars but Rob made sure that I knew what was going on the entire time and what needed to be fixed in terms I’d understand. I’ll definitely be coming back here for my car needs, plus you get to see the cutest Rottweiler ever, why wouldn’t I want to come back!Thanks Rob and the Budget team!read more

I have taken my car to this place for the past three years. No one likes to take their cars to mechanics (including myself), but Rob and his friends make it a pleasant experience at the end of the day every time. They really take good care of their customers, and very well deserve a 5 star. Highly recommend this place! Rob, keep doing the excellent job!read more

During my journey of finding an honest and reliable auto centre to have my vehicle serviced, I have seen the significant number of positive reviews that Budget Brake & Muffler Auto Centres - Burnaby has.From the very first phone call for getting more information to finalizing the service in person, Rob has been exceptional with his care and customer service. I wish every business owner/manager was like him, as I am happy to finally find an establishment where I can trust with my vehicle and my budget.read more

Big thank you Rob for excellent, professional and fast service! I had some problems with the engine light and Rob managed to fix a time for me the day after. He was also straight up with all the prices and I felt I could trust him. I really recommend his place.read more

I had my Buick Enclave serviced here at Budget, brake and muffler. The manager Rod Akehurst and staff were very polite and professional . He went out of his way to explain all my car needed. The price he quoted was reasonable and affordable. I would recommend this business to anyone who needs to get work done. Don't hesitate if your car needs work. 10 stars out 10.read more

Great service and honest prices. Brought my car in on a late Friday afternoon with a punctured tire. I told Rob I had plans to go away the next morning and he made sure he got it fixed that night, I believe he said “if my guys can’t do it, I’ll do it myself”. Not long after I was on my way with a fixed tire and a small billread more
