Seattle Auto Repair

5

Budd and Co are the best! I've had three trucks, all Toyota's including my current '97 Tacoma! I trust no one else with my vehicles now and since moving up the north end of Seattle, decided to continue to use Budd and Co! It's a drive but worth it for me. Just recently got my clutch replaced there and it feels like a new vehicle. The guys are all super nice, super knowledgable and very good at what they do. There's this old adage that you get what you pay for and while I've heard complaints that Budd and Co are overpriced, the work is always above standard and these guys will back up their work 100%!! I recommend them as highly as I can and as for as long as I live in Seattle, my vehicles will always go to Budd and Company! Great shop, great service, great group of mechanics!

Many moons ago, my father recommended I take my car to Budd's. Being as I was young and still rebelling, it was years before I visited the auto shop. (this may also be due to the fact that I did not have a car in my early twenties)When I purchased my beloved 1999 Subaru in 2006 my quest for the perfect dog taxi, Budd's became my go-to with car issues. After many, many visits, I always come away satisfied with the outcome - except once. My head gaskets blew (yay Subaru!) and I took my car to Budd's to see what they could do. This is a common and expensive repair that plagued the Outbacks during a few years of production. ~$1500 later, I left with my car, brand new head gaskets dancing in my head, excited to avoid another tow. Until a few day later when my car overheated and had to be towed, yet again. This time I was kinda pissed. But when I returned to Budd's to talk to Mike about it, he immediately tried to fix the problem, just like usual. The shop decided the engine was not worth trying to fix, so they took it out and replaced it with a fully refurb engine, perfect head gaskets, and lower mileage. This with no extra charge! I love the willingness of the shop to not only fix my car, but fix the rare mistake they make.My Sub is still running. at 155,000 miles, I just called Budd's for a tune up quote and to make an appointment. The car is running a bit rough, I'm bad at maintenance when it isn't being used for business. With the business about to start up again, I am excited to get the work done and my car running (relatively) smoothly again.

I moved my daughter to Seattle from Portland to attend Seattle Univ. and our Suburban died the evening after we arrived. Since we have AAA, they towed us to this shop since it was within walking distance from the university where we were staying and AAA approved. How lucky we were!! I called the next morning to discuss our predicament and the technician had already diagnosed the problem and quickly had a very reasonable estimate for repairs (turned out to be alternator). Once they learned we were from out-of-town, we were put on the fast track and our vehicle was ready in about two hours. When we went to pick up the vehicle, the shop was full of other vehicles; a testament to their quality work and outstanding customer service. I was very impressed; they were friendly and professional and I highly recommend.

We switched to Budd and Company after our last mechanic made one too many mistakes. Budd has fixed everything on our cars, and the repairs have endured. The mechanics give clear explanations about what is going on. Their pricing is competitive. They have never recommended work that was unnecessary. I trust these guys. Thanks Budd & Company!!!

These guys are great...one day I was nearby on my way to a doctor appointment with a tire fast losing air...drove in, told them the situation and 10 minutes later they had patched the tire and I was on my way...and just the other day, I smelled raw gas both inside and outside the car, dropped in when they already had a full day scheduled and they had my car back to me by early afternoon...Mike and his crew know the word SERVICE!

I really, really like these guys. They are smart, efficient and great at communicating with you what's happening with your vehicle. I feel a high level of trust that they will do what they say and that they are giving me a good price.

One of the most stressful things about uprooting and moving to a new city is finding a new mechanic. As a girl who knows nothing about cars, it's easy to get totally worked over by mechanics. Another shop told me, about a month prior to my experience at Budd & Co, that i needed around $600+ in repairs to my vehicle. strapped for cash i declined. Budd & Co however, told me that none of them were necessary, at all. Honesty is awesome! Also the customer service was fantastic. Jordan rules. They quickly and cost efficiently fixed all the problems. Such a huge relief to have a place i can take my car and not worry.

Budd and Co. got my business by default because they are located near by. I'm a REALLY bad driver and tend to hit curbs and forget to get my oil changed and shit. Budd and Co. is on my block. I've used them before and felt comfortable with them. They guy I usually deal with has secret agent voice. I'm a sucker for secret agent voice.I hit a curb. Hard. Bent my rim and blew my newish tire out. Next morning driving to work, a gentleman asked me to roll down my window so he could deliver the news that I had a flat. So that's why my steering wheel is veering to the left. Limped my car back to my block and got a ride.Called Budd and Co and asked for an estimate. I was informed that they couldn't give me one without looking at my tires. I told them I was parked a block away and they took the time to hoof it to my car, diagnose the problem and provide me with an an accurate estimate which included finding me a used wheel to save me some $$$. They had me back on the road one day later at a reasonable cost, I called around before giving them the green light. They were competitive in pricing and very professional. In a nutshell, they are a trustworthy establishment.

This was a great experience. I went to this shop two Fridays in a row - two weeks in a row because I did not take the recommendations they gave me the first time. I was leaving town both times and they managed to were able to take care of my issue quickly. They were great to work with and showed me exactly what needed to be fixed. They gained my trust and my continued business.

If you still have a gas-burner, this is the place in Seattle - professional, kind, and courteous to a fault. Friday night on the way home my transmission dies. Monday I drop off the car, and for a replacement transmission+clutch+flywheel including labor I was given an estimate of $1770+/-.This morning I called to check on the rig, and they shamefacedly told me that the previous mechanic (another shop) had failed to bolt things back together properly after a clutch replacement and that while the clutch+flywheel was needed, the already-installed new transmission *wasn't* and I wouldn't be charged for it, as they should have spotted that before opening things up.Out the door at $1,067.84. I have *no* complaints about Budd & Co and have used them on other vehicles - getting consistently better prices and service than I am accustomed to. Budd for the win!
