Certified star shield smog check facility

Along with performing minor and major maintenance services, we're also a certified gold shield smog check facility. We're licensed to perform your regular smog check or a test only smog check. If you fail the test, we can diagnose and repair the issue so you'll pass it the next time. Whenever the DMV or AAA requires a smog test for your vehicle, visit us!


We perform official state brake and lamp inspections which are required for the California brake and light inspection certificates needed for registration and salvage titles for most vehicles.

Is your cabin air filter dirty? You might be surprised what a dirty filter looks like and how it affects the car. Just ask and we can let you know if yours should be replaced.

Give us a call and schedule your maintenance appointment today!
