I owned or ran well-known transmission shops on the Eastside for over thirty years. We had many customers in the Seattle area and when they wanted a general mechanic they could trust, I sent them to Budd & Co. In thirty-six years I sent them hundreds, maybe even a thousand customers. In all those years, I never received a negative comment of any sort. I'm old and arthritic now, as most ancient former mechanics are, and had occasion to use them myself this week. They took care of me in a manner that is uncommon, even among top mechanics. They have my highest accolade and probably always will. Just for the record, I am GM and Toyota trained with specialties in Transmissions and Electronic Control Systems, and have made numerous technical contributions to both Gears Magazine and Transmission Digest. I know my way around a car and they do, too.
