I learned about Dave from his father, a former neighbor of mine. Dave worked for the local Ford dealership for over ten years before he went off on his own.He is well versed in all Ford products and has been working on my wife's Mercury Sable for several years. I went to him after the local Mercury dealership told me I needed $1,500 in repairs! Dave told me they were nuts. He fixed the car for $150. It runs like a scalded dog which is great because my wife has a lead foot.

Dave Abbott, diagnosed my vehicle and fixed the problem in a timely, professional manner. I strongly recommend him. He has always been honest, upfront and fair. If it's not a real problem he doesn't turn it into one! That's what I call a good mechanic!

Dave is the kind of mechanic everyone needs to have. He is honest, upfront and will not rip you off! He will fix only the broken parts. He will take the time to explain what he has done to repair your car. I certainly can't say that about every mechanic.

I own a Ford Taurus and used to go to Bev Smith when Dave worked there and he always took good care of me. Well when he left and my warranty was still there, I didn't get the kind of service that I was used to. So, now that my warranty is no longer, I am no longer a customer of Bev Smith's repair department either. I go to "Tell A Friend Automotive" and Dave treats me like I am accustom to. I do not hesitate to send my friends as well as customers to him, because I know he will take care of them in a good way!!! Keep up the good work Dave!!!!

I used to take my car to Dave when I lived up in the Palm Beach area. I now live in Broward Cnty. He is worth the trip. He is honest and fair. I have recommended several friends to him and they have made the drive as well!

This guy is unbelievably honest and responsive. He did two rather major repairs on my 85 Mercury and both have stood the test of time. He's very cheap, and really decent. I invited him to change the sparkplugs if needed and he called back and said it wasn't necessary. He's in a tumbledown neighborhood, which keeps his overhead low, but he really delivers the goods and has a pleasant, forthright personality. I recommend him so highly I'll even give directions: North Lake Blvd east to A1A, south about a mile to Silver Beach Rd. Take a left and turn right immediately on K. He has a small sign a few hundred feet down the way. I don't think he has facilities to give you a ride home, so I brought my bicycle. Highly recommended! MC Browning

Dave Abbott is friendly, extremely competent, knowledgeable, and he fully explains the problem and shows you the broken part or the trouble. I bring both my '93 Cadillac and '93 Lexus to him, and I know he will maintain them well! He is very pleasant in personality, and his prices are very fair. Go to Dave with utter CONFIDENCE. He's a rare find in these days of rip-off artists! Sincerely, Jim Stob Palm Beach Gardens

Dave is extremely honest, reliable, and he keeps both my Lexus (94) and my Cadillac (03) running like new. I just keep 'em polished and looking like they have just come out of the showroom. I will not hesitate to recommend him strongly to anyone I know seeking an excellent, competant, and fair mechanic. There are too many crooks out there. Dave is a refreshing change!
