Business Description: Budget Automotive and Radiator is a locally owned and operated company. Paul and Wendy Taylor are a husband and wife team and we have been in business in Springfield since 1993. We service the complete automobile from oil changes to engines, tune-ups to clutches, brakes and front ends, computer diagnostics and repairs. We also repair, recondition, or replace radiators, heater cores and gas tanks. We specialize in cooling system repairs, no heat problems and we are the ONLY shop in Springfield that does a true POWER FLUSH on cooling systems. It is a chemical free high pressure air and water reverse cooling system flush. Along with our 89 point heating and cooling system tests, it is the most thorough service you will find. We offer discounts to first responders, senior citizens, and teachers. The thing that separates us from the other shops is that we believe in giving our customers options. You let your BUDGET decide what work you have done to YOUR car. We will list needed repairs in a priority order, advise you of any preventative maintenance we see may be needed, and you are the boss when it comes to what repairs we perform. Above all, we are honest, fair, and friendly. We believe in treating people like family.
