“Very professional and fast service.”

I do recommend to call ahead since they have some busy days, but you can usually call and have an appointment that same day.”
“These guys were a big help for us. The car didn’t pass the first time because of a wrong part, and they helped us with ordering the correct part, recommending a good muffler shop, and getting the car to pass the same day. Highly recommended!”
“Great place to go for smog”

“very 2 years I am here to have my car smog and it's pass every time I will be back again and bring more friends and family to support local business.”
“I needed to get my smog check and I called to see if they will be able to help me out, since I went to Toyota and they refused to help me because it was 3:30 and their mechanics leave at 5. All the staff here was really nice and said that they would be able to do it for me, when I walk in Andy help me out. I ask him if they I could get my smog check he said yes but he also asked me if my truck was already register and I answer no that I needed to do that and that's why I was getting my smog check he then mentioned that I was able to do it there. I also told him that I didn't have my California plates since I just moved here he mentioned that I could get those there aswel. Luckily I had most of the paperwork but I was missing my title and he waited for me to go home and get my title this took me about 40mns by the time I came back it was almost 5. All this time he was waiting patiently, have in mind they close at 5. Not only was I able to get my plates, registration, smog check, I also was able to do the title transferred that I've been needing to do for the longest time. All of this was done in less than 2 hours and most of it was me been a difficult customer😅. I move alot so I have been in at least 6 States DMVs were I have needed to do the same plate, registration combo and by far this has been the best experience. No stress, no lines and he didn't make me feel like I was an inconvenience to him, which is how you feel when you're at the DMV. In conclusion, this made my month, again he was a great help very knowledgeable and I would recommend this to any family member or anybody, specially if you like things done right and you are a difficult customer like me, faster, better experience. Did I mention by the time we were done it was already 30 Minutes after closing and Andy still had the patience to put my plates on my truck for me.”
“I went to have a smog test at this location on April 9 and my car was not passed the test.
I am so worried and thinking that what I going to do ,to fixing it which cost a lot of money or get ride of it and buy a new car .This question is bothering me because I am a senior and can not be able to walk . I went to the smog test station again in the next morning and met the owner I explain to him about my problem. Surprisingly he offer to help and we go along driving . He put a meter on my car and driving for about 15 or 20 minite until it OK to do the test and come back to the smog station. This time my car was passing the test. I am so thankful to him and his kindness. Thank you so much his service is beyond five stars.”
“easiest and most efficient service that i ever received!
I called 30 minutes before they close to see if they could smog my car and they did!
I was in and out in less than 10 minutes
Everyone is very welcoming and professional!
Súper recommended I’ll definitely come back!”
“Wow great service. thanks fellas”
“Guys in the smog check station was very polite nice to talk to. And they're straight-up about the car being smogged. It passed so I was so pleased. Would tell my friends to there..”
“Highly recommend! Outstanding customer service and offers Military discount!”
“Good and fast service, would definitely recommend this place”
“Went there for a check engine light and it was diagnosed quickly with no charge. I bought the part from the local dealership and came back and they installed it for 30 bucks. Check engine light is gone and the car passed smog! Thanks.”
“Fast convenient easy! Drove in and was helped right away. Being in the auto industry I know what to expect. This was extremely exceptional service.
“Great service easily passed my dodge caravan smog and best of all they helped pushed my car out of the shop because my reverse was out! Awesome thanks guys.”
“Service was fast and friendly. Very informative and helpful on so many levels. Much appreciated business, will return!”
“I called Kenny around 3:00 PM to see if they had availability to squeeze my 1998 suburban in for smog that day. I had previously called several other so-called “best” smog locations, and they all told me that their machine only worked for cars 2000 or newer. It seems pretty dumb to advertise yourself as solely a Smog Check Station and not be able to test cars older than 17 years. But, Kenny came through. I arrived around 3:35 PM and was out with my certificate by 4:15 PM. It was quick, reasonably priced, and convenient. Thanks Kenny! I'll see you the next time I need a smog check!”
“Very helpful and fast service.”
“This place was at home! Called (AKA BIG KEN) was cool on the phone so I said I'm there. Walked in felt a good vibe. It was a good experience will be there next time.”
“A little shop, easy access, great staff, respectful courteous, and quick. When it's time for another smog I'll be there”
“Awesome shop great value and honest people”
“Little family owned and operated smog shop. Came in here by accident meaning to go the the shop across the street. They matched the price from the shop across the street of $45 including the certificate. Found issues unrelated to the smog and pointed them out to me without any sales pitch. In and out in 20mins. Would definitely recommend.”
“Very nice service and respectful staff. I needed a gas cap to pass smog and was given help on where to find one quickly. I came back and was helped quickly. While I waited I got to talk to the staff and they were friendly. This place beats the other places I've gone to in the City Heights and Oak Park area where I felt like I was being scammed on prices and additional work to my car. Highly recommend. I'll be taking my car and second car back when it's time.”
“Amazing customer service! Everyone is so friendly. We were there for 30 minutes because we needed an oil change then smog check. Definitely recommend!”
“Quick. Easy. Very affordable. I didn't spend more than 15 minutes for the service. Service is great and the employees are very helpful. I will definitely come back again when it time for another smog check.”
“First time here...so far so great!!! 5 STAR”
“Honest and excellent service”

“Really nice guys thanks for everything specialy the water !!!!”
“Good place for smog. I gave it 4 stars because they close at 5. I called them and told them I would be their at 4 :50 and he said ok. I got their at 4 : 55 and he changed me $10 extra because it was goin to be 5pm.”
“Dear National City Smog Check, I would just like to take the time to thank you for making my life so much easier, by your fast service and attention to your customers.
I walked in and i was done within 35 min. i got my tags because my car passed so easy and it was so close to my home, i did'nt have to go find a State of California LICENSED SMOG CHECK you where right in my neighborhood.
Once again Thank you.

el senor se llama Kenny super buena onda la neta !! super servicio y bien rapido todo smog me tarde 15 minutos y lo pase!!! muy buen servicio!!! gracias!!”
“Very nice man, very quick. Great Job. His credit card machine was not working, so I had to go to an ATM to get him some cash. He trusted me totally I liked that. I came right back with the cash and will continue to take my car there for repairs...honest man.”
“Owner was very courteous and the place is by far the cleanest smog place I've ever been to. I highly recommend it.”
“This was the best experience I've ever had getting a smog. I had to wait only 10 minutes and it was the best pricing in town. Trust me I did my research. I highly recommend this business for anyone interested in looking to get a smog.
The owner Also directed me where I could get some body work done on my vehicle, and the place he sent me to was also fantastic and highly affordable.
This place is the real deal!!”
“No problems at all. The two guys were very friendly and I got my smog certificate in about 15 minutes. They also checked the air pressure in my tires, and one was a little low.
Both attendants were masked up.
All in all, a good experience. Cost was $52.25, $2.00 of which was a 'credit card fee' which irked me a little. But I got over it.”
“Had my smog check done here, came in midday and I was helped right away. The staff was very nice, they took care of everything and even kept the papers for them to give back to the DMV! Super friendly staff”
“It was time for a smog and I decided to try them after reading the excellent reviews. I was on a tight schedule since it was the middle of my work day so I was prepared to just schedule an appointment and come back another time. Well, they took me right away, and the whole thing only took about 15 minutes. In my opinion, the reviews were correct and I will be going back to them the next time I need a smog check.”
“brought my car in today for a smog check, it's pass! the technician is very knowledge and good personnel highly recommend for anyone need smog check and come here to have it done.”
“This is my second time here and have nothing but good things to say about their service. Fast and convenient, Kenny went out of his way to help me!! Great customer service and trustworthy!”
“Wow, this was the BEST smog check experience I have ever had! I called prior since I was in the area. They said come on in whenever I wanted they could get me in. Pulled into the small parking lot. Was greeted immediately and told there was one car ahead it would be about 10 minutes. I didn't know it was going to be a total of 10 minutes, thinking it was 10 minutes to get me in. 10 minutes total and I was back on the road. Fast, professional and cool guys. I had been putting off getting a smog check until the last minute and I regret that. I recommend this place for sure.”
“Andy was friendly helpful and overall had great customer service. Very knowledgeable about cars anD car service. Smog check itself was quick and affordable.highly recommend!”
“I really recommend this place. If you are like me, who has no idea how the DMV, the stickers, and the smog check are all related, you'll find comfort that these guys will explain in detail how everything works. ANDY was very efficient, he did my smog check in less than 10 minutes. Prices are super affordable, it was about $50 bucks for me, but I guess that depends on your vehicle, make and model... I'm guessing lol... please come here to do your smog check. they'll even print your certificate and they'll communicate with the DMV in order to get your stickers. 5 stars!!!”
“Came In 10 Min Before They Closed Like An As*Hole, Yet Was Still Helped Out. Andy Was professional And Had Me All Set Up Within 20min. Had A Great Lexus Talk. Andy Is A Cool Dude.”
“Took my uncle's car for a smog check because he lives not too far away. Friendly staff and straight forward. The shop looks okay, but for the amount of time you spend waiting, it does not really matter. I was IN and Out and didnt get far in my book reading. Since I was already in the area, I got some Freddys Hamburgers and frozen custard near by.”
“I totally recommend this place great and efficient they are professionals and love their job they are not going to waste your time or steal your money.
I pay $50.25 Was quick and less than 10 min.
I will definitely come back here.
Thank You Andy !”
“Awesome place! Cheap, friendly and fast. Honest mechanic that gives it to you straight.
Will come back many times.”
“This place is lightening fast! I drove in at 8:01 a.m. and I was immediately helped. The service was excellent and I was all finished in 8 minutes. I knew my car was running well before I drove in. I passed smog no problem. This place is the best. Ask for Ross.”
“This place is awesome. I brought our work trucks here for smogs. The first time we didnt pass and our mechanic said there was a few things that needed to be repaired. We did the repairs and it still didnt pass. We took it back to the mechanic and he said there were new things wrong with it. I found that hard to believe. The guy here suggested changing the gas cap and driving it for about 50 miles and bringing it back to him to check (free of charge) before getting the repairs done (which he didnt think the truck needed). We did that and voila it passed smog. He saved us a lot of money on bogus repairs.”
“These guys rock! I came here in need of a smog check after “failing” at a shady business. These guys were a great help. I pulled in and they took care of everything and I was able to sit down and even watch them do the smog check. They were super fast, extremely polite and professional! I would highly recommend this place.”
“Amazing service! Everyone was so nice! Passed smog test!! Definitely recommend!”
“I've been taking my vehicles to get them smogged here for the last several years. Each time it is been done very quickly without any issues. Only once didn't my vehicle pass smog and that was because the battery had gone dead and the sensors needed to reset. Kenny explained the problem and once I did what he advised it passed the very next time. I haven't had him work on any of my vehicles but a few I know who have are happy with the results.”
“This is my second time smog testing. First time in the San Diego area. Kenny was very friendly and got me in right away. He also kept conversation going throughout the check and was very personable.
There is seating available while you wait along with a candy dispensing machine.
It was $42 for the inspection (2000 and up 4 cyl) and $8 for the certificate, making the total $50.
Took about 30 min to get in and out because there was someone ahead of me.
Overall very happy with this service. :) too bad I don't have to come back until 2021!”
