Came here on a whim to get my car smog tested and I'm glad I did. Very friendly and professional. Gladly my car passed even if it didn't pass smog I would still recommend Joes Auto to my family and friends.

i've been coming here for 14 years now and its great to see the same core people still working here! The best thing is how the mechanics are happy to talk with you about your car and describe how things work or what is best for THE CUSTOMER.The alignment guy is the best. (i think his name is Dan) all in all, very good shop. reasonable prices, prompt service
