Abs Exotic Repair
"I own a 2006 Mercedes Benz 500 CLK and have had it serviced and mechanical work performed on it at numerous “high end specialty shops” throughout Palm Beach, Broward, & Dade counties only to be left with outrageous bills that weren’t even close to my original quotes and either did not fix the problem or had to be brought back within a year or 2 to be addressed again. Therefore, you can imagine my angst and hesitation when I needed to find another repair shop. The highest rated shop I found on line was the auto repair lady Angela @ ABS Exotic repairs. I conducted my on line info. for first time clients and received an email w/in 10 minutes. Wow that was quick. We shared a few emails to clarify my needs and then she called to confirm my appointment and if I would I need a rental car. I showed up for my initial assessment and she performed a thorough exterior inspection pointing out to me some areas that needed to be addressed and at the same time making sure that I was the right customer for her. LOL. She knows her cars. To summarize, she is a straight shooter with old business acumen. Offering only parts and service that she can in all good conscience put her integrity behind. She stayed within budget, delivered services on time, showed great attentional to detail and followed up with a phone call to confirm my satisfaction. Oh don’t get me wrong she’s a proud and passionate character but my type of character. She has found a lifelong client that would refer her services without hesitation."

Singh Automotive
I originally took my car to Tires plus as it had a bad oil leak. Tires Plus did an oil leak test with dye to determine where the leak was coming from and charged me $42 for the test. I came back 3 days later and they said that my valve cover gasket was leaking and very possibly the oil pan gasket which was an expensive repair. Tires Plus quoted me $175 to repair the valve cover gasket and around $400 to repair the oil pan gasket. Also they told me at Tires Plus that if they break any brittle parts when repairing that I would be responsible for that repair also. A friend then recommended me to Singh's Auto in Ft. Lauderdale area, a place I never heard of. I brought the car to them and they put it up on the lift and checked it at no charge. Immediately after looking under the car the owner Singh said it was an oil pressure sensor that was leaking pretty badly and he pointed it out to me. He said the oil pan gasket was fine and that the Valve cover only had a very minor leak and the major problem was this oil pressure sensor. I had Singhs do the repair and he charged me $125 which was a very fair price. I am very happy with the entire experience at Singhs as to repair a bad oil leak only cost me $125 instead of the $500 repair I was looking at elsewhere.

I just wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude to Angela and Staff at ABS Exotic Repair. I moved two years ago to Ft Lauderdale and as anyone can identify, trying to find a specialist in auto repair that you feel comfortable with is no easy challenge in a new city. I was recommended by a friend to ABS Exotic Repair as my 2004 325ci BMW was in need of servicing. Upon arrival I was greeted by Angela who gave me an introduction to her services and estimate procedures, I immediately felt comfortable and left my car for her to inspect. Later that day I received a detailed estimate on the repairs needed for my car and I approved the work. Since this day I have without hesitation brought my BMW to ABS exotic repair for any servicing needed no matter how big or small the job. I highly recommend this facility to anyone in need auto repair that wants the peace of mind when they drop off their vehicle that the job will be completed with perfection!

Pauly Bee's Complete Auto & Truck Repair Inc
I met Pauly for the 1st time yesterday. Pulled in as I needed my AC recharged on my 1999 Toyota Sienna LE. He was polite, didn't waste time, gave a solid price and we agreed on 11 a.m. today. Got there left the car for an hour, just as he said. FREEZING COLD AC NOW :-), he found and resolved a leak, put in dye to make sure it could be detected if it happens again. On top of this I asked him about my Transmission fluid. He checked it and it was a quart low. Put it in a NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. I tried to pay him more and HE REFUSED. Very kind, very professional, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM to anyone. I work with the public for a living and after 50 years, can quickly discern character most of the time. Pauly is a rare jewel and I HAPPILY will trust him for anything I need. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT EXPERIENCE TODAY. I MUCH APPRECIATE IT, PAULY!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

I was recommended PB's by a couple of people who know more about engines and cars than I do. Brought in my newly acquired great price AS IS after test drive 99 Nissan Pathfinder LE (LE: Luxury Edition! Whaaat?) I knew going in it may have some issues and the main one was the idle was sticking. Dropped it off to Pauly's nondescript shop when he opened in the morning and I had it by the end of the day at a non-pull-my-heart-through-my-throat price. Pauly is as a no-bones-about-it mechanic as you would hope for nowadays. He found out another sensor may need to be replaced but in his opinion which at this point I trust wholeheartedly, can be replaced later. I'm going to schedule a rear shock replacement soon with PB. I live in Dade county but I work in Broward, right now I can say he's worth the ride and the planning to come here on my day off. Did this review help you?

Frenchy's Auto Repair
I normally never write reviews for a business but I felt for this I must. I am a United States Army veteran and I have never been to a more trustworthy and caring establishment. Every problem that was found with my vehicle was physically shown to me and explained by the husband, and the Mrs. is one of the sweetest ladies I've ever met. Each time there has been an issue with my van they got it in the shop promptly and have saved my butt from missing work or seeing my daughter on numerous occasions because of their extremely timely service. I couldn't be more grateful to have found a repair shop that feels more like a family, there is no shop more honest or caring in this area of South Florida. I highly recommend their establishment.

Empire Auto Care
just stopped in today and met the owner and his son and was pleasantly surprised with the face lift and transformation of the repair shop. Modern lighting and complimentary beverages were offered to customers.I had 2 vehicle inspections for Uber on my 2015 Kia Optima and 2010 Cadillac Escalade. The owner is an ASE master mechanic and was extremely proficient and professional in completing the requested work. The owner has years of experience working on GM vehicles in addition to all makes and model automobiles. I will be recommending Empire Auto Care to all of my friends and suggest everyone stop in to their shop for any automotive repair needs, as you will be pleasantly surprised.

Prime Auto Group
Great place to buy a cheap, or should i say inexpensive car. They had a ton of nice cars, nothing super fancy, but their whole thing was fixing everything on the cars so that they were just really nice running and clean. They showed me around the lot and gave me almost a tour of how they get a car ready and the things they do to them. The cool thing was that I met the mechanic and detail guy Danny and they backed up the things they the other guy was saying was done to the car without even thinking for a second. The mechanic was like oh i fixed this and that on the Blazer and it's running real nice now. I was impressed. Bought it. Happy 3 months later.

Brad's Automotive Repair
I have been using Brad's Auto Repair for over 17 years, and I have followed them when they moved to their new location. I drive to them and them only from North West Broward County because John and Bruce are the only Mech's I trust in South Florida. They do a good job and have fair prices, bur again, best of all... You can trust them to stand behind their work. I can't say that for any other Mech's I've tried over the years down here. Tell em, Tony Ramos sent you..... They don't have a referral program, but It'll show them you got their name from a customer that trusts them and has been going to them for almost 20 years.

Car Doctor USA
I don't even know what I would have done if it weren't for these guys. I had an annoying & loud front end squeak on my truck & took it to the mechanic down the street, who quoted me at "starting at $1200) to basically rebuild the front end. I took it to the Car Doctor, who took about 2 minutes to find the problem- loose screw holding the bumper on. The next vehicle I brought in had much more extensive issues, but they were able to get to the bottom of all of them & were very professional, nice, and fair in the process. I can't believe I found an honest mechanic while I was living in south Florida.
Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.

Just a moment...
