I use these guys to smog all of my vehicles. They have always been quick and accurate regarding their time estimates. If I ever had any issues with my vehicle they provide recommendations on how to clear the codes or what repairs I might need. They also have a full repair shop.

Trustworthy, clean & efficient.

Had a good experience during my last visit for smog test. They have a good waiting area and some refreshments. The owner Mike was very friendly and genuine.

Sam is without a doubt the best auto technician in the area.  I've been taking my car here for about three years now and Sam does it all. Honest and quality work. The man deserves a raise. Cheers and see you guys the next time the car is in need!

It took a little time finding out why my dodge ram 1500 wouldn't start. Alan (service manager) was fantastic. His knowledge, skill and superb customer service really eased my anxiety and he even provided a loaner car to me. My truck now starts right up. I will be back here for my next repair.

Oil Change was performed quickly with a reasonable price. Sam was very helpful.

I have been coming here with my old trusted 95 Ford Explorer for over 10 years.  With their amazing service and help, the truck just finally was sent to the junkyard due to the transmission failing for the second time with over 320K miles on it!  Woohoo!  Without Sam and Mike, that vehicle would have been gone long ago.  

Sam Farah is the guy I like to work on my cars.  He always goes above and beyond in helping me out to save whatever I can.  After the truck was disposed of, I brought over the used car I was looking to purchase.  Sam stopped what he was doing, checked it out for me even lifting it up and letting me know of a couple of issues beginning to wear, and even took it for a test drive!  With his information, I was able to get a little bit of a discount on the car.  

Mike is always helpful in any way he can and really all the employees here make me feel welcome and care about what is happening with my cars.

Getting a car smog isn't really the most exciting thing in the world, so this review will be brief. There's not too much to say except for that the process was so easy and fast! I brought my car in and by the time I finished writing a yelp review and checked a few emails my car was ready. Maybe 20 minutes max!

My car passed which is always a good thing.. haha.. Sometimes you just don't know. The staff was awesome! She was so friendly, even though she was stuck in a small little office and had a guy yelling at her for pretty much no reason. She's awesome.

They have a lounge to hang in while you wait for your car with coffee and water. There's a tv and there are books too, but unless you want to read about Broadway Musicals or Soviet Russia then just make sure your phone has battery lol.

Make sure to bring a coupon if you have it, I only paid $34.95 for the smog! And they also do other services as well, oil change, and any other vehicle maintenance that you need. 5 stars!!

Every time I need something fixed on any of our three cars, I take it here. The staff is friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. They have a great clean waiting room, free coffee/water, TV, magazines and today's paper. Cost is reasonable and they do an expert job of testing for smog or complete auto repair.

I wish I found them sooner. This is the type of mom and pop shop you want to support. They are friendly and attentive, and know how to fix your car. They shoot straight with you and don't scalp you on pricing. My repair quoted by the local Toyota dealership was $3500, they did it for $900, with a better warranty and handed me a rental car for 3 days, without me even asking.
