I went today to get my car smogged and I came across everyone's praises about this place. I gave it a try last week unfortunately, there was a car that stalled in Joe's shop so I couldn't get my car smogged. I went back today and everything went smoothly. Joe is the nicest guy you will meet. A lot of the places, they don't care and give you "attitude" - not Joe - he talks to you and explains to you the process. He is one amazing guy. I would definitely recomment this place to anyone looking for a place to get their car smogged. AND HE ONLY CHARGES $32!!! Other places charge $60! You cannot beat that!!

I mapped Joe' s Smog Check today and drove to his shop. Now, don't expect nice leather seats, with drinks and a cozy room. Joe ' s Smog Check is a small garage in North Hollywood just North of the 134 freeway. The main point is he did the job and he did it right! A+++

When I drove there, Joe (yes he is the owner) came out to my car and asked for my name. He already had a car in the garage but he asked me to come back in about 1/2 hour. It was lunch time, so I went to the local McDs 5 minutes away to pass the time.

I return to Joe's and within seconds, it was my turn and I was in and out in 20 minutes flat!!

I have smogged my car throughout the city and I have to say Joe is A NUMBER ONE!

Why?

1. Excellent Customer Service - He acknowledges his customers immediately (you're not just waiting and waiting - he WILL come out to your car to say hi and take your name.)

2. Small facility but clean and it's a smog test folks but there are some chairs to sit down with magazines and a TV to pass the time.

3. Low, Low, LOW price!!! Go to his website and print out a coupon before you go.

You know, I hate smog checks as well as most people do too. But Joe really makes this process easy and to the point. Kind of like seeing your dentist for your 6 month cleaning - you get on the chair, he cleans you, gives you some advice and BOOM you're outta there!!

That is Joe 's Smog Check!!

Thanks Joe!!

Stopped in today. Joe is the MAN. Was there for maybe 15 minutes. Great service and very nice guy. Make sure to take the coupon in from his website for a $32 dollar smog. Best price in town.

Hi

I have never had a Smog check, just having moved to Cali. This guy (Joe) was super polite, very nice and more than willing to explain the process to me without making me feel dumb about it. The place was clean and i got to sit down and read some magazines will my car was taken in, there was even a TV to watch! I was in and out in 15 minutes and it was DIRT CHEAP compared to everyone else. Definetly worth the drive for both price and professionalism. Definetly going again next time!

I went to Joe's to get the biennial smog check for my car. The shop is very clean and not cluttered with all the usual stuff. They explained everything to me and got me in and out in 15 minutes. Very professional service, all around excellent. 5 stars.

I based my choice to go to Joe's by reading reviews here (make sure you sift through the ones that are obviously written by the business,) price, and attitudes over the phone.
Get their coupon on their website for an even better deal. Super nice and no BS ? you'll be in and out in 15 mins.

Just wanted to pass this on, Joe's Smog Check is worth a bit of an extra drive for the speed of service (mine was done in 10mins, but makes sense to call ahead to see if he is busy), and the shop is very clean and comfortable for what it is. I have waited around in some pretty messy / slightly depressing auto shops, this place was fine. The price is competitive and Joe is a nice professional, and made an effort to get me out as fast as possible. Overall it was a great service, and I hope to pass this on to anyone else searching.

I am a female who knows nothing about cars. I was very apprehensive about getting this test. Joe's was very professional and efficient. His place was clean. There are magizines and a TV while you wait.

It is really great to find a honest and reputable facility. I highly recommended it.

It is worth the extra drive if you have ever experienced rude employees and false reasons to take your money.
It is really refreshing to not be taken advantage of by car mechanics.
It is great to know there are honest businesses out there.

Joe is best smog testing guy in town.
He is fast, friendly and cheap! My experience couldn't have been better! 10/10!
I drove all the way from West Hollywood to see him in North Hollywood, but it was worth the drive.
The local stations around my house were costing twice as much!
He was done under 10 minutes... but I just wanted to hang out, talk with him and read his nice selection of very current magazines.
I will recommend him to everyone I know and will be back for sure!

I found out about this place on-line, and the main thing that interested me was the cost... So I decided to check it out, and my experience was great... The owner was really friendly, and the entire procedure was done so quickly, I was in & out. It's a great place to go to for a smog check... I would definitely go back again :)

I brought my foreign car. No one wanted to perform a smog check on a foreign car, but he took the time to look up in his book technical information.

Service was fast, pricing very accurate, a great deal!

Thank you!

After doing some hunting on the internet and making about 5 phone calls I discovered that the vast majority of places that do smog checks wanted to charge me $60+. I've had a smog check before, this cost is absurd. So I did some hunting and found Joe's. I made my trek up to the valley and was glad I did. With the online coupon I was out the door for only $30. Joe was very professional, his shop was clean and I was in and out of there. Note that Joe does testing only so if you have a car that you think has problems, you may want to take your car to a place that also fixes the issue but other than that, big thumbs up to Joe!

Took my 2000 Celica there for a basic smog check and passed; price was exactly quoted;
they didn't try to sell me any add-ons; got me out of there as quick as possible.
What more could I ask?
Why can't gym's be this straightforward with their pricing/service??

I was at Joe's Smog Check today and it was just like everyone else said: fast, friendly service at a bargain price. Most smog check stations costed $40 and up. Print out the coupon from the web site and save yourself money and time. The technician was friendly and took only 10 minutes to complete the test. You can sit back and watch TV and they offered free bottled water to boot.

All in all great experience and highly recommended!!

On top of getting an excellent deal (the TOTAL was about 35 USD for a mid-size car) the owner is a friendly fellow that will answer any questions you may have. He also gave me a tip I could pay my registration fee online - that saved me a stamp and the "will it get there on time" postal service thrills.

My first choice initially because Joe's was located close to my home. I have a car that has a hard time passing California's strict smog check. Both due to it's age and that it was not bought in CA. Joe's is a very clean place with very friendly and helpful employees. Amazingly, there is no need for an appointment (I just showed up early one Saturday morning and they took my car in right away.) They are very reasonably priced and don't slip in any extra or hidden costs. I saved even more money with a coupon they offered on the web - and they honored it without any hassles. They were very quick and efficient and I was in and out in no time. Joe is a very nice guy, and in my estimation, very honest. I would gladly take my car back to him or recommend him to anyone.

Coming in from another state, the smog certication process was a bit of a mystery and DMV gave only confusing info. Prices for the process vary widely and I didn't want to get cheated. So I'm happy to have found Joe's. Professional in every way, quick with no need for an appointment, very favorably priced with the Citysearch discount, and no trickery (such as $29.95 inspection and $30 for the certificate). Easy to find with Mapquest directions and worth going a few extra miles!
