I pulled in today and was out in a flash with my smog certificate. I didn’t even get halfway through the People magazine in the waiting area. The owner/operator is a really nice young guy trying to get this business off the ground. Help him out! Very convenient off Cesar Chavez in the Mission. good service and prices.

I took a road trip down from Washington and on the way down my change oil light popped on. I continued my trip and didn’t really worry about it. I’ve never had an oil change done here in SF, but I am one of those people that likes to get things done fast. I am staying with a friend a few blocks from here and decided to check it out.

I made a call and they had really competitive pricing ($65 for synthetic oil on my Lexus) and the shop was really clean. The customer service was great! I think the guy’s name is Howard and he was really personable and friendly. I will definitely come back here again for my oil change in the future.

I was scouring yelp this morning for an oil change place.. I called and asked if they had any appointments available. I was able to bring my car in right away and was back on the road in about 15 minutes. The car is driving so much better now, and it was an extremely reasonable price. Howard seemed really nice and honest and straightforward. I would definitely recommend this place. Thanks to those who wrote reviews for pointing me in the right direction!

I’ve been a long-time Yelp user, but I have never been inspired to actually write a review before. It’s hard to believe that a smog check shop could change that. I was so thoroughly impressed by the folks at Auto Smog that I felt compelled to share my experience with others.

Briefly: My car is new to California and this was its first smog check (drove it across country from N.C). I found Howard to be incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. I went to them because of the location (near my house), but I’d gladly drive across the city for them in the future.

These guys are great!!!
Professional, hilarious, quick, & through! There are also comfortable car seats to seat in while you wait!
Check them out!!! They make getting you’re car checked out/ worked on (which we all know is a drag) an enjoyable process.

I’ve come here twice actually, first with my girlfriend. Once I saw how friendly and relatively inexpensive compared to everywhere else, I brought my car in for a smog check as well. They communicated well letting me know that they wouldn’t be able to do the check right away, which was fine with me, and got me in and out as quickly as they could.

These guys are excellent. I called ahead and made an appointment and all was punctual and done perfectly. I live within walking distance of their shop and was able to just hang out at home while they worked. They called when finished (within the hour, i had told them no hurries).

Like everyone else has said, very friendly, fast, and thorough.

I brought my car in for an oil change and he immediately started working on it. I only sat in the chair for 10 minutes and he was done! It cost $35 plus a $4.50 hazard waste fee. He was very friendly and told me exactly what I should be expecting to replace soon, like a leaking oil pan gasket and also how strong my brakes are.

I highly recommend this place. You can’t beat the service. It’s a good feeling when you can trust someone to be honest about your car.
