Offering The Evolution of Elite Smog & Auto Repair in El Cajon

Elite Smog & Auto started in El Cajon in 2003 when owner Travis Davison decided to try his hand at running a shop as a mobile mechanic. He quickly gained a loyal customer base due to his excellent service and effective auto repair results. This allowed him to open up a full-service brick-and-mortar auto repair shop in 2008. Travis hired a few more ASE certified mechanics to meet the growing demand for his services and kept an eye on the evolving needs of drivers of the El Cajon region. This led the shop to become a smog test station in 2017 and a certified smog and repair facility. The Star Certified shop is also affiliated with the San Diego Humane Society and gives back to the community via its Smog for Paws program.

Meet Travis Davison - The Heart of Elite Smog & Auto

Travis Davison has over 30 years of experience working within the dealer and independent auto repair industry. He grew up in the industry working as an ASE certified mechanic for local dealers but wanted to add a friendlier, more personal touch to his service. This spurred him towards opening his first mobile shop and then eventually the current Elite Smog & Auto shop. Travis prides himself on offering great VIP service to all customers along with expert solutions via accurate diagnosis. He aims to integrate the old school principles of customer service with modern cutting-edge auto shop repair technology.
