WHAT REPAIRS TO MY CAR ARE MOST IMPORTANT TO DO NOW?

I GOT A SMOG CHECK NOTICE. ARE YOU CERTIFIED?

Yes, we are a Star Certified smog check station (formerly known as Gold Shield); we can diagnose your smog failure and repair it at a reasonable price whether it's "test only" directed or not.

Consult the Department of Consumer Affairs Bureau of Automotive Repair, who allows you not only to check the smog history of any (California) car, but also to see whether that car is directed to a test-only station.

WHAT IF I FAIL MY SMOG CHECK?

The Department of Consumer Affairs Bureau of Automotive Repair has a wealth of consumer information here on things ranging from buying and selling a car to what to do if your car fails its smog test.

I WANT TO GET A NEW CAR BUT I'M SCARED OF BEING RIPPED OFF BY A DEALER. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
