STAY AWAY - Horrible experience, seniors beware 6/8/2010

They smog tested my car then said it's computer did not have info needed, charged me for that, and then said to come back tomorrow and they would test again for full price. Pros: None, maybe being close to home Cons: Unfair practice, I complain, called a jerk by the manager more

Smog 4/6/2010

I had my car smogged here. They were quick and professional. Family owned and it was clear to see. I felt like I could trust them with my car. more

North County Smog 3/21/2010

They are very affordable and the staff is great. I took my car every time I needed a smog and even got my boyfriend going there. My car recently hit the "smog only" stage, so I was bummed to not be able to go back, but North County Smog even gave me a great recommendation to another shop. more

Complete rip off artists! 10/29/2009

The same as the others here. Supposed Engine light, didnt pass smog, charged me 98.00 to tell me nothing was actually wrong. Falsified documents stating that they did work that they didn't do.(ReplacedMIL Bulb) Screwed up my gauge cluster and then said that they didn't do it. Now the light on one side of gauge wont work, they wont honor their mistake and they charged me over 179.00 for a smog and to destroy my gauge cluster! Didnt know they damaged my truck until night time when I turned on my lights. Scotty and his dad are both scam artists! Like father like son! Turning then into the state for falsifying documents to pass smog. Also turning them into the BBB... Stay away! Pros: Nothing good to say Cons: Absolute rip off! more

RIP OFF - WORST SERVICE EVER 10/21/2009

This place is horendous!!! They do not honor their own discounts. I was todl I would receive a discount if I had them diagnose the problem, fix it, and then smog vehicle. When I went to pay for the repairs, they stated they could not give me the discount. Then, just over a month later, I had a problem with the same part they repaired. They provided no assistance in resolving this issue. I would recommend every consumer avoid this shop at all costs in order to avoid getting faulty repairs and getting ripped off! Cons: Overpriced, shoddy work more

STAY AWAY 8/21/2009

These guys smog tested my truck and said everyting tested fine except the ""check engine"" light is on ($49.75). The check engine light had never been on before the test. Scotty said he would do all the repairs necessary and re test for no charge. (Sure...) I fixed the Check engine light myself and brought the truck back for another smog test. Now the ower wants another 49.75 to smog check again. Don't trust this business. I am in the process of having the Business Bureau look into this shady business and possibly small claims to recover my loss. Cons: Bad business ethics more

North County Smog Ctr Inc 7/12/2009

We took both of our cars here for a smog so we could register them. They have reasonable rates and you can get an even better deal with their coupons. Very professional and quick service. Highly Recommend them! more

Highly Recommended 4/2/2009

Scotty and his father own and run a great shop. I've been screwed over a few times with some very shady mechanics. These guys are defintely not one of them. I go to them for EVERYTHING. They know what they're talking about, are extremely honest, work with you, and are very friendly. I recommend their business to anyone who needs anything done. Oil changes, engine swaps, etc... Pros: Honest, Knowledgeable, and Friendly more
