"The mechanics were very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what was needed. They were very fair and accommodating. They allowed me to make repairs for what" was needing to be fixed myself. Definitely recommend this garage.

"I have been going there for almost seven years. I mostly deal with the manager
. He is very honest and doesn’t try to oversell me on" an expensive repair for an older car my teenager is driving. Their staff is the same employees each time. They are very personable and know who you are when you talk to them on the phone. I would recommend to others.

Cars in snow, protect them from salt
Auto Inspections

Salt covering your vehicle doesn't just look bad—it's bad for cars. That salt can rust the metal and mess up the upholstery. We've got 5 tips to keep it clean.

In some states, inspections are only carried out by government-operated garages, while in others they can be conducted by Department of Transportation (DOT) approved facilities. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Christopher E.)
Auto Inspections

A car inspection is sometimes beneficial if you've recently bought a used car, or moved out of state. So, how much should a car inspection cost?

Be sure you get your oil changed before your trip if you are close to the scheduled maintenance, along with air filters and fuel filters, says Shilling. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Stanford C. of Portland, Oregon)

Car Inspecting reviews in Poway

It didn't go well at all. My family is multiracial, but these people seemed extremely rude and somewhat racist. Instead of offering to call over to the dealership where the car was purchased to get more information about what had been done to the car, they advised me to go back over there to get the problem fixed. I would not use their services in the future.

The owner,
Poway Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
, is not a very nice man. When you first see him you might think "Mr
Poway Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
." Once he speaks you think "SATAN!"
I did not pass because of a glitch. Apparently some computer codes had been cleared by my mechanic and the system needs to reset by driving. They said "Go drive your car for 100 miles or so and come back." I asked the guy if I needed to pay again and he grinned and said, "Oh, yeah."
I said I thought it was unreasonable and asked for the owner. He came over and said, "One smog check, you pay! Two smog check, you pay! Three, four, five smog check, you pay each one."
At this point I was taken aback because he was so freaking rude and I said I didn't that was very good customer service. His response was, "I no need customer service. Every day people need smog check. They have to come. Now you pay and get the f**k out of my property." Gesturing to the other tech he said, "Take his keys. Make sure he pay!"
I paid and got the H*** out of there!
This guy is an A**HOLE! I find any good reviews a bit hard to believe. In my opinion--don't GO HERE!

I like them. They are good. Normally, I wait for my car, and when you wait for it they are prompt. IF you have a ten O’ clock appointment they take it in at ten O’ clock, barring there are no problems, they are usually done within a short period of time thereafter. They make appointments. They do good service, they are a quick service and I like the people there. The mechanics are good. Where you have a problem, they are really good at solving it. Last year, I had a problem with the light on my car on and they fixed the problem but you have to wait for the check engine light to reset itself. I waited for a week but it hadn’t reset yet, so I took it back and he gave me his checker, and when you plug it in, I can count it on his checker when the lights all went out and the flags had changed. As soon as the flags had changed, I took it back to him and he inspected it and he didn’t have to do that but he was really nice about it. He was really helpful in working that out and I like that about them. They have always really good working things out. I really trust them and believe what they find is really something wrong.

I have been a very satisfied customer of this business since 1981. These professionals have performed prior-to-purchase inspections on all of our used vehicles we've purchased, as well as regular maintenance on both them and all of the new vehicles we've purchased. we've seen 3 new vehicles we purchased in the past each reach their maximum mileage life of 250,000+ miles due to the excllent maintenance and advice provided by this business. Their recent stalwart advice was crucial to the purchase of a new truck that continues to be an excellent buy. They continue to provide

, honest advice that results in the best choices for the vehicle and for the customer. They very often give advice that does NOT result in unnecessary profits to or repairs by their establishment. That is amazing in that it stands in

contrast to the "strictly financially-motivated" businesses that

today's business environment. They also continue to provide excellent, no-cost advice to our friends and family members as needed. You will NOT find a better, more reliable or more customer-friendly business than this one. I could mention many, many instances where their help has been invaluable to my family and I, but suffice it to say that there is absolutely no reason for us to even consider using a different automotive repair facility than this one.

It went very well. They were fast and efficient. I got the car back the next day. I kept hearing a sound when I would turn when I took it in. The first technician couldn't figure it out as well as the sales rep. The head mechanic came back and took the tires to rotate them. There was an air bubble in the tire which was a reject. It was out of warranty but they actually still covered it and I literally only had to pay the taxes which was 8.00. I would have had to pay a lot of money out of pocket and they were able to honor it with me only paying the tax for it.
