"They've done all the work for all of our vehicles for years. They're our go-to for all of our vehicles once they're no longer under warranty. They" do a great job advising us what needs done sooner rather than later, and making sure everything is maintained properly. We're really happy with their work and I would recommend them to anyone.

-Heather C.

"He never finished the job. He collected all the money and never came back to finish. Spent 20 hours waiting around on him with at least 5 excuses as to why" he didn't show up. He never got the right parts and promised numerous times to finish the job. NOT! don't use this

Car Inspection reviews in Ithaca


We get both our cars (a 92 Saturn SL1 & '98 Honda Civic) smogged every year at

. We have been going there for the past four years. They are a family-owned local business. They always get me in and out very quickly and the prices are good.
- Alisa C.

We were thrilled with the service at
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. They were able to squeeze us in the very next day for a safety and emissions check, so we dropped off our car in the morning and picked it up in the late afternoon. The inspections were completed, the car was sparkling, and the check in and check out service was quick. We decided to purchase another voucher through Angie's List and have our other car inspected at

, too, even though it's a bit of a drive for us.

For the price of $30, the provider did an excellent job. Changed oil and performed PA state inspection/emission. They were very curteous and professional.

A Ratings:
It was easy to schedule an appointment. The Service Manager,
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, checked me in very quickly. Questions were addressed immediately. The people are very friendly. I enjoyed my brief chats with Bill and
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
B Ratings:
I found the service operation to need a bit more professionalism. I asked to observe the inspection from “outside” the service bay. The Service Manager informed me the inspectors did not like people watching them. It immediately created a doubt in my mind that the inspectors either felt not fully competent or that they had something they did not want me to see. Finally upon an uncomfortable discussion with the Service Manager (although friendly), I was walked around to the side of the service area and permitted to observe from the public area “outside” the service bay. It was an area that was public use so I was surprised that there was any concern at all that I stand there and observe. Upon
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
’s inspection completion, I was informed my vehicle had failed the inspection. I was shown a ½” tear in the rubber of the driver side of my top of the line wiper blades. The
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
Blade was about a year old, so I suppose the tear could have been present without me observing it. I was given the choice to replace the blade with a $15 bottom of the line blade (probably worth $9), $30 upgraded blade (probably worth $17) or fail my vehicle and return for a complete re-inspection. Upon
returning home I talked to my neighbor who also uses this inspection station and was informed they also had a wiper replacements required with a past inspection. Something did not seem quite right with the entire experience and that is why I lowered some of the ratings to a B.

- Joseph M.

I mentioned i needed an inspection and an oil change - They didn't tell me their state inspection system was broken before doing the oil change... really unhelpful having to come back multiple times when I could have left right away and had it all done in one visit at a different location.
- Grant E.

The people were very thorough and gave an honest estimate. They delivered what was agreed upon and was
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
with what really needed repair and what items could wait for repair. They repaired the car in the promised time and everything was fixed perfectly.
- Betty S.

I called
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to find out if I needed to make an appointment the afternoon I wanted to get my vehicle smogged.
It was about 2pm in the afternoon. The person who answered my call said I didn't not need an appointment that they could take me as soon as I arrived. I drove to the
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
center and they took my car in as soon as I arrived. It took only about ten minutes for the
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
check. They were very polite, efficient and did a great job.

He provided me with all the information to
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
my claim. The insurance adjuster said that we could not collect Diminished Value. They paid to fix my car and that is all I will receive.

After getting the report and following directions
Ithaca Car Inspectors Provider Name Locked
helped me recover over $ 9500.00 in lost value. This was the best $ 600 I ever spent. He even got the insurance company to pay his fee.

I hope that I never need his service again. But if another collision does happen he will be my 1st call for help.
