State Inspection Service
All states have different requirements for keeping car registration current, and California is no exception. While it may be a hassle, La Habra All Tune and Lube is able to perform state inspection service and tell you where to go to make sure your car passes inspection in case your car fails. In California, smog tests are required for all vehicles except diesel fueled cars older than 1997 models/or with a GVWR of more than 14,000 pounds. Also except are electric, natural gas vehicles of 14,000 lbs, as well as hybrids, motorcycles, trailers or gas-powered vehicles older than 1975 models. Because your vehicle only requires biennial state inspection service, it isn’t something you have to worry about too often.
“Smog” is a portmanteau of the words “smoke” and “fog,” and it means bad air quality. These air pollutants are a serious health hazard, which is why it’s important that your car passes smog inspection to protect California residents. You’ll get a reminder from the DMV that your car is due for smog inspection, and then you may choose to bring your vehicle in to All Tune and Lube to check your car for emissions.
Apart from state inspection service, La Habra All Tune and Lube is able to perform many other mechanical services your car may need, from repairing shocks or fine-tuning your transmission. Our goal is to make sure your car is running at its best, and to provide up-front price quotes for your vehicle.
