This 2008 Toyota Prius Hybrid passed its change-of-ownership smog check inspection today at JUST SMOGS® in Huntington Beach. Hybrid emission inspections are essentially the same as most 2000 and newer gasoline powered vehicles.
The inspections consists of a comprehensive visual inspection of the emission systems as well as an OBD computer scan.

OBD II is a system that has been installed in most 1996 and later cars and light trucks, intended to inform the driver of problems in the components that control the engine and transmission. The primary reason OBD II was invented is to reduce smog emissions caused by malfunctions, but it is also valuable as an alert to the driver that something is wrong…something that can affect gas mileage and drivability, or actually cause further damage to the vehicle.
This beautiful Ferrari 360 Spider passes a STAR smog check inspection. Licensed smog technician John takes special care during the inspection.
Our smog technicians are inspecting two very different vehicles. The Aston Martin Vanquish passes it’s star smog check. Unfortunately, the 1977 Volkswagen Bus does not. It is sometimes difficult for older vehicles to conform to the strict smog standards set out by the State of California. On the bright side, California offers subsidized smog repairs for low-income motorists. There is also a vehicle retirement program that will give you cash for your “clunker.”
