Whenever I have to get one of my cars smogged, I start searching all over the Web, in newspapers, PennySaver, etc. to find a smog special that will offer a fair price as well as do a professional job of checking out my car without finding repairs that curiously appear that are needed during the smog check.
I found High Tech Auto the other day in my web searching, read a couple of reviews from other satisfied clients, and picked up the phone to make an appt for the next day. They were very accommodating of my schedule, told me the 'out the door'cost for the smog check, and booked me.
The next day, arriving about 5 mins before my appt, I was welcomed warmly by one of the family in this family-run business, filled out a form while they pulled my car into the stall, offered me coffee or water while I waited, brought around a candy tray, and made me comfortable while they smogged my car. I was out of there in less than 30 mins, with my smog cert in hand and the charge for the work exactly what they quoted me.
This is a Christian family-owned and operated business. It is the cleanest shop I've ever seen. There are plenty of reading materials, the waiting area was clean, comfortable and will be my smog check place for all cars going forward!
