Default 951/909 slammed friendly smog shop

It's about that time of the year again and I'm looking for a new smog shop. Not too happy with the service of my old one.

Looking for a slammed friendly shop around 951/909 Inland empire area

you guys should know that for 2000 and newer cars they dont use rollers anymore so i dont know why you need a low car friendly shop. its just an obd plug in and a sniffer.you concerned with the driveway?

Just an update. I was so confused when I went to smog and realized they didn't drive it on the machine anymore. Plus it was a lot cheaper because of this. Ended up getting it done at a local mom and pop smog shop for pretty cheap.

basically they do 2 things:

1. quick visual check.

2. plug in the obdii reader and run your car at idle for a few minutes..

as long as your car doesn't throw any codes your good to go.
