Seattle Auto Repair

This place is great. I have to say that when I leave Seattle, this is going to be one of the places I miss most.These guys always do a great job with my Jetta, make sure I understand exactly what they want to do, and never push sales. I have recommended this place to a number of people.Granted, they are not going to offer basement prices, but the extra cost means they don't feel a need to sell you services you don't need. Besides, this place is busy enough that they don't need to invent business.One example: I took my car in to have a cracked rear view mirror fixed. They said that if they were to do it, they would have to replace the other piece (which would be around 80 bucks). They suggested that I just go to a glass place down the street and save some money. So, instead of paying 80 bucks (plus labor), I paid about 15 bucks at the glass shop.

The only place I take my truck. Awesome to deal with, no nonsense. They've always treated me better than any other mechanic I've ever seen. Very nice and courteous. I've had lots of work done here and I've never been anything but thoroughly impressed. (The work was done on different vehicles. When Budd's fixes something, it stays fixed.) I've had a transmission rebuild here, complete break job on my wife's car, and various small things like a headlight replaced. They're the only shop I'll deal with.

I didn't think I would need to find my own personal mechanic so soon after moving to Seattle, but, I guess my car sucks. Fricken Suzuki's. This was the second place the towing guys tried to drop off my car at. The first one said they couldn't do anything until Monday (it was Thursday, NYE), and didn't offer to let me drop my car off for work.Budd & Co said the same thing about working on my car when we stopped by, but they immediately offered to house my car for those 4 days so I wouldn't have to tow my car 10 more miles away. They looked really busy, but jumped right in at helping me. That Monday afternoon, they called me and told me my car was ready. I was happy with the price and the speedy service. Granted, it was a pretty easy fix, but I was impressed and grateful. They didn't try to sell me up on anything else, they just fixed the problem and left me a message stating it was done. Why can't everything be that easy? My new mechanics? Yes.

Had good experience fixing my air conditioning. Wasn't dirt cheap, but they kept to their estimate and finished the job on time.

I stand by these guys 100%. They have always had my back when other companies have tried cheating me out of money. I have tried probably 5 or 6 other places around town, most all of them AAA certified, and they have all tried to scam me by telling me things needed to be fixed that have not. Most recently I went for an oil change at Elliott Tire & Service Center because I had a coupon, I came out of there with a piece of paper telling me I needed $1500 worth of work done on my 2006 car. So I go to Budd & Co and they are honest and trustworthy about what needs to be done, they explain numbers to me on the car, they are not afraid of giving me a fair diagnostic. I think these guys are terrific. The $1500 of work that Elliott Tire & Service Center told me needed to be done turned in a $35 fee at Budd & Co to look at the vehicle and I drove away carefree. I will never go anywhere else.

I bought my current car with 65,000 miles on it, and have put another 100,000 on it since. There is not way for me to get to work with fewer that three buses and an hour and half each way, and that is on the days I'm at the location closes to home. As much as it pains me to say so, I need my car and I depend on it. So I need someone I can trust to take care of it and maintain it, and work with my schedule so I can use it to get places.I started using Budd and Company when my old mechanic got too popular and became inconvenient. They highly recommend trying B&C out, and I have never regretted making the change. While they are not cheap, they are straight forward, trustworthy and give you your money's worth. The front counter guys are friendly and never condescending. They have almost always turned things around in very good time (except once when a part didn't come in on time), and they are easy to communicate with over the phone to confirm work and make payments. I briefly tried a VW mechanic closer to my house, and immediately regretted it. These guys are solid, dependable, and kind. Highly recommended.
