I brought my truck in for a smog inspection; the vehicle has JBA shorty headers which Valley Smog said were illegal for my vehicle year and that I had installed an illegal catalytic converter. The facts were that the catalytic converter was the original catalytic that came with the vehicle and the JBL shorty headers were CARB legal for that year of vehicle. Unfortunately their front office defended their smog specialist who was wrong on both counts. When I presented them with the facts they said I needed to talk to the California state because it was their problem, not Valley Smog’s. The only issue I had was that they were more than willing to take my money for substandard work and didn’t deliver the smog certificate, so I took my truck to another smog testing station and passed the smog inspection 45 minutes later- this job should have been a win-win interaction for me and Valley Smog-



For having this be a State Approved Shop through the State of California, this is one of the lousiest places i have ever taken my vehicle! I brought my car in to be evaluated b/c it would not pass smog test, and instead of getting some helpful recommendations, they told me they would need an extra 2-3 hours to troubleshoot the problems with the codes that came up on the diagnostic machine. (they already had the car for 5 hours, when it was only suppose to take 3 or 4 hours to check it over.) The troubleshooting would cost over $350 alone, without any work being done on it! I refused to have to pay that, and picked my car up the following morning. I brought it to another recommended shop locally, and they found and fixed the problems wihin 20 mintues! So this place is a rip-off and it should not be allowed to service smog check problem cars if they are going to be criminal about their prices and services!
