"I was able to get the smog check performed in under 45 minutes. The staff was very professional and courteous and the waiting area was clean and comfortable. I" would definitely consider using for my next auto repair needs.

"I wanted to get my vehicle smogged as quickly as possible at a location near my work. had my 4runner smogged in 15 minutes - customer service" is as expected from a mechanic - perhaps a bit gruff but overall experience was great.

-Thomas T.

Job 1: He was working on a car when I came in & said it would be about 6 mins. more. He had a section of the garage set up as a "waiting room." - 2 comfortable chairs & a table loaded w/magazines. He shares the site with a car rental agency. He asked me if I had called earlier, & I affirmed that I had. He drove the car onto the ...More testing site & proceeded to run the tests. He was very professional, & the test was over in about 10 minutes. I told him I had another car to be smogged. He asked questions about it & then told me the cost would be the same for the Subaru. He smiled & I told him I d be back in a few weeks. Job 2: Mr. is professional & concerned. I called before I came over & he told me he was with another customer & it would be 20-25 minutes before he could get to my car. I got there a few minutes early & he came out to tell me it would be another 5 minutes, & was very solicitous of my well being. The check took 15 minutes & he was friendly, efficient, & professional.

I called to see if they needed an appointment. " No, just show up, and here are our hours." I went on a Friday afternoon, they took the vehicle immediately, said come on back in about 20 minutes. I did some shopping, came back in about a half hour and it was ready! Very friendly, and the total cost was exactly what they had said it would ...More be. Very dependable people.

A good thing about this location is that they take appointments, previous stations that I had used did not. I was unaware of this when I arrived. was very accommodating to my busy schedule and even though no appointments were available that day, he agreed to perform the check after his last appointment at 5:30. I returned a little ...More early and he was available and performed the check. His price was also less than I had paid before.
