Great customer service, fast and friendly. I was given a loaner car to use while waiting for my car to be finished. I appreciated that instead of waiting in the shop for a few hours.

What’s better than five stars? :-)

I will be back to this business, came in to have brakes checked and got a honest review regarding cost. I was advised not to invest the money, car not worth it. I will be recommending this business.

— Sheila M., Detroit, MI

Very fast and Friendly service. Was told at the dealership that my vehicle needed new brakes and after Budget Brakes checked them, then indicated that there was no need to replace them.

— Sandy D., Livonia, MI

Chris and his team of mechanics are courteous, and trustworthy. Not a word you hear much anymore in the auto repair industry. My car is clean when I get back in and the repairs are done with efficiency. Reasonably priced as well. I would highly recommend Budget Brakes!

Chris and his staff are fantastic! They do great work and are very professional. I'm new in the area and I am so thankful that I found them. Great service!

My first experience with Budget Brakes Livonia was in 2013 when I needed new brakes on my 2006 Fusion. They did a fantastic job and the price was very reasonable. I recently contacted them again, thinking my brakes needed repair (same car). Chris and crew did a thorough exam of the brakes and all was well. However, I needed a tune-up, and several component flushes. Everything was done within a few hours, and I was also given a loaner so I could go to work. I would highly recommend Budget Brakes Livonia for quality work and not having the fear of being "ripped off". Thanks guys!!! Carol Paquette

I called on a Monday morning. Talked to a nice guy by the name of Chris. Within a few hours, we had the car in, checked, quoted, fixed and off and running. We're without a doubt for life clients! Thanks Budget Breaks!

— Aaron M., Livonia, MI

Chris n company seem to be the best at all they do. They replaced all brake lines, front rotors, discs pads, axle assemblies all for less than dealer quoted price just for brake lines. Also repaired ignition control module wiring harness problem that no one else had been able to diagnose. Experienced, reliable, great work at fair prices and friendly too, don't waste your time or money by going anywhere elsewhere else these guys kick booty.

— Mark B., Garden City, MI

Great service and Reliable!!!!

— Felicia B., Redford , MI

After picking up a new windshield washer line from the dealership, I took my car into Budget Brakes to have Chris and his crew install the parts. When I went to pick it up, he indicated the service was "on the house" and didn't charge me. I've been taking my family vehicles to Budget Brakes for a while and this only confirmed what I already knew. The team at Budget Brakes is second to none. The helped me out in a big way and earned a customer for life. I won't be going anywhere else for car repairs.

— Mike ., Livonia, MI

The team at Budget Brakes is absolutely incredible. Time after time they continue to earn my respect and business. I always feel treated with the utmost integrity. I have been bringing my car to this repair center for years. Honest and affordable are two words that best describe Budget Brakes.

— Daniel S., Livonia, MI

I needed new brakes for my car and did a quick Web search; I was impressed with the reviews and opted to give budget brakes a go. What you read is legitimate. Chris is both warm and genuine and the service was fantastic. I would return here again.

— John B., Livonia, MI

It's not easy to find an automobile repairs shop you can trust to do exactly what they say they will do, with great competence, and in a timely manner. Chris and his crew at Budget Brakes in Livonia are the ONLY people I trust with my family vehicles! They've taken care of three of our family cars, for about four years now, and I simply wouldn't even consider going anyplace else...not even to the dealer where we bought the cars! Chris is friendly and personable...and truly concerned about the safety of his customers. And that goes for the top-notch first-rate certified mechanics as well! To sum it all up, I'd say, "When you have the best...you forget the rest!" Thanks! Bill Stinson Livonia, MI

— William J., Stinson, MI

The quality of service that you receive is excellent. The professionalism and honesty are unmatched from any place else. I recommend Budget Brakes to all my friends. Great job Chris.

— Bob J., Davis, MI

The service Mgr. Chris is Awesome, Brought my 2000 Chevy Prizm in for a squeak in front end he found the problem fixed it and sent me on my way at no charge! Now that's Great service!!!! Evan D Redford Mi.

— Evan D., Redford, MI

The service I received from the team at budget brakes was second to none. After I received the news from another shop that I had a rear main seal leak (an estimated $500 repair), I took my 2007 Malibu over to Chris and his team. Using their superior diagnostic skills, the team informed me that the problem I was encountering was nothing more than an improperly installed oil filter. Ever since that day, I'm happy to say I'm a repeat customer at Budget Brakes, and will continue to have my service done by a group of trustworthy mechanics. Thank you budget brakes for your honest work.

— Arden S., Livonia, MI

Way to start 2015!Excellent customer service by Chris.Quick and affordable.I will be returning in two weeks for something else.

— Calvin W., Detroit, MI

I went in for one thing but I told them of a additional problem I had. They checked it out and I was able to get the additional work done at a very reasonable price with a 2 year or 24,000 mile warranty!! :-)

— Leslie N., Detroit, MI

i think this is one of the best shops around they had me in and out in hours they where quick and honest i will for sure be a return customer % stars all the way

— Eric M., Livonia, MI

Budget Brakes was recommended to me by Discount Tires after multiple returns to figure out why my steering wheel was shaking. Budget Brakes knew what was wrong the second the touched the tire. My front brake was nearly ceased. Problem fixed, reasonable price, and on time. Can't ask for more! Will return in the future when needed.

— Robin S., Redford, MI

I recently went to Budget Brakes for the first time & had my brakes fixed. Very Fast & affordable, these guys really know their stuff! I will definitely be back & tell everyone i know!

— Sara T., Taylor, MI

I took my sister's car to Budget brakes for the first time a few weeks ago as a result of a referral from a local Discount Tire center. I was extremely pleased with the professional, fast, reaonalbly priced service. They didn't try to sell me something I didn't need. I plan to take all my vehicles to Budget for future service. I also appreciated they treated me with respect. They listened and didn't act like so many maintenance techs do when working with female customers. Nice job, Budget!
