    My name is Angela. I am the owner and operator of ABS Exotic Repair, Inc. in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.

    Cars are my passion. I have been in the auto business doing what I know and love for the past 20 years. I know what is going on with every car and every client every moment throughout the repair process. I am a published author, speaker & instructor of automotive life skill & safety courses. Years ago, I created the trademarked class the Car Clinic for Women, I still teach the course & will release a brand new on line program soon. After your car goes home, I personally follow up with every client to be sure they had a great experience with my company.

    I recently was have an issue with overheating. Another local shop had just replaced the entire cooling system, without my approval, to the tune of $2000. After picking up my BMW 525i, from the nightmare of being hijacked from the other repair shop, it would still heat up. Afraid that I was going to have to submit to the tortuous experience of overcharges from the dealership just to diagnose the problem, a colleague recommended Angela at ABS Exotic Repair in Ft. Lauderdale.

    It was just before the New Years weekend that I limped my BMW to Angela's shop. Although I didn't expect my car to be repaired over the holiday, Angela greeted me with warmth and professionalism. She went out of her way to accommodate me by arranging a rental car and having my vehicle looked at over the weekend. She personally called me almost daily with updates. The news wasn't what I wanted to hear. A blown head. She had me speak directly with the mechanic who did the diagnostic work so that I could understand everything that was involved. At this time I could not afford an additional significant repair. The best part is she understood and would not charge me for the diagnostic work! This is a rare find in South Florida. In all of my years I have never found a shop that gives quality service like this. I will be back! Bravo Angela and ABS Exotic Repair!

    My driver side window was no longer operable and there was a terrible grinding noise coming from the rear wheels. Angela at ABS Exotic Repair was able to accommodate my time schedule and fix both problems on time and for less than I thought it would cost. She was a pleasure to work with and communicated with me every step of the way, including sending pictures of some of the problems. I have had this car for 13 years, and utilized various repair shops, but Angela made this the best experience I have had during that time. Thanks.

    Due to massive use I had basically run out of BMW warranty on my car. Repairs are costly and take time to get done causing me to let things go a little longer than I should have.

    My husband found Angela and said she was very highly recommended but I've never before met an honest mechanic. Regardless it was needed so I took a chance. She now has a life long customer. Honest, good service, great communication and attention to detail.

    I highly recommend and will continue to recommend ABS Exotic Repair. Very happy with my car and grateful for the great service.

    The proof is in the results.

    The keys to a good repair experience (or any business transaction) are service, quality and price. Since I acquired this car six months ago, I have been to no less than three different repair establishments (including the local BMW dealership) and spent many thousands of dollars, only to get recurring issues and the car running sub-par. Angela gives fully personalized service, no high-volume here, with real emphasis on getting problems solved and honesty, flexible arrangements - all things that are sorely lacking in most other places. Her prices are more than fair, especially compared to the competition. Most important in my case is that not only did she find many items that were overlooked by the other shops (animals in the intake(!), leaky hoses, etc.), the car performs so much better than after any other service, it is astounding. A key measure is miles per gallon, as it is a clear measure of the car's efficiency. I have been averaging 25 mpg on most long trips prior to ABS's service. My last trip? 31 mpg - a 24% increase, along with the smooth running and power that I bought the car for.

    I highly recommend ABS Exotic Repair to bring your car for service.

    My car is currently in Angela's care at ABS Exotic Repair. I have to admit that I have been lax on servicing the car recently and it has a few issues. After I met Angela in person I have no doubt that it is in the right place. She went over the options with me and advised me the way a family member would - you can tell her sincerity is real. She even sent me a picture of one of my tires that she feels needs addressing and has recommended me to a tire facility. She is not trying to sell me anything herself. This is not typical in South Florida! I will follow up on this review in a few days and I am sure it will include a smiley face.

    I was recently referred to the Auto Repair Lady by an old customer of theirs. My Z4 was taken in and treated like a real lady by Angela. Angela even gave my car a name. Repairs were made as promised and on time. Another repair issue came up shortly after getting the car back. I took the car back to Angela to be checked and it was repaired at no cost!!!!!! What a way to treat your customers!!!! Great place to do business with. I would and did recommend my friend to ABS. I don't think he will be disappointed either.

    Outstanding workmanship! A tremendous feeling of confidence. A difficult electrical problem fixed perfectly the first time. Angela and George are courteous, prompt, and very fair price wise.
