Hybrid Smog Check in Huntington Beach (STAR Certified)

Hybrids outsell all other passenger cars in California

“The Toyota Prius is the number one selling passenger car in California”. Those words, spoken by the instructor of a hybrid vehicle diagnostic course I took two years ago, made it clear that gasoline hybrid vehicles had arrived in a big way.

Everybody is on board with hybrids

Just look around the next time you’re on the freeway.  Everybody is making a hybrid.  Toyota has the Prius and Camry.  Chevrolet has the Volt, and Ford offers hybrid Fusions and Escapes.

Californians love hybrid vehicles! They’re stylish, economical, and good for the environment, but did you know that even hybrids are required to pass smog inspections in the State of California?

That’s right, whether you drive a Nissan Altima, Honda CR-Z, Hyundai Sonata, or any other gasoline hybrid powered vehicle, chances are that you’ll eventually receive a notice from the DMV with the words “Smog Check Required” printed along the top.
