This place is great. I called a couple minutes before I left to see what the wait time was or if they could take me and the girl at the front desk immediately told me to come on over. I think I was waiting a total of 7 minutes from beginning to end. Very fast, very efficient and friendly.

I highly recommend them!!!

Went and got my Prius smogged there today! Called and got my car checked out on the same day with absolutely zero hassle. They were quick and efficient and I hardly had to wait at all. Also, they remembered my name from when I called in the morning, which was really nice. I would definitely go back!

Travis is such an honorable and trustworthy person. He always gives me his honest opinion about what he would do if it was his car. So you know, sometimes that advise was not to do work that would put money in his pocket! I recommend all my friends and family to Travis!

I've used Elite for a few years now and have always been extremely happy with the work that has been done and the price. I have been in the automotive business for many many (too damn many) years and good diagnostitions are very hard to find. Travis is one of those hard to find technicians. I've never had him sell me this and then come back and say that I also needed that after he replaced the this. He works by appointment so it's best to call ahead rather than just stop by. Look no further for a great all around technician that can handle foreign and domestic as well as high performance.

We've used Travis for all of our fleet maintenance, as well as personal vehicles and he does a great job! Very honest and reasonable and goes out of his way to provide great service. I would highly recommend him.

This is a great repair shop. I've been using Elite for over 10 years. Service is always top notch. If you're looking for a trustworthy, reliable mechanic this is the place to go. I even sent my mother there on her own and am confident that she is always treated fairly. Highly recommended.

Elite Mobile Services is a solid and trustworthy auto mechanic shop. My wife was visiting CA and found out I was coming home sooner than expected. With a drive across country awaiting her, our truck had the unfortunate luck of taking a dump. Elite Mobile Services was recommended to us and as advertised by word of mouth, did a fantastic job getting our 2006 F-150 back on the road in a timely manner and at a FAIR price. Thank you for your hard work and dedication! If not for your shop, I wouldn't have had the pleasure of my family greeting me at the airport! Thanks

I've finally found an honest and knowledgeable mechanic! My older truck failed a smog test at a STAR test station. I brought it in and they found a particularly tricky problem and repaired it in no time. He then verified it would pass the test and I was on my way. Went back to the STAR test station and it passed no problem! Fortunately, Elite will have their STAR certification in a week or two and I will be able to go directly to them next time one of my cars needs to be tested by a STAR test station. The shop is clean and waiting room comfortable. Anglica at the front desk is awesome! This is my new place for auto repair and should be yours too!

Travis did a great job diagnosing and repairing my wife's Toyota Camry. He completed the work quickly and at a fair price. He let's you know what needs to be replaced. Thanks for the help and we will definitely be back!

For anyone looking for a knowledgeable, trustworthy and efficient auto mechanic, I have found one. Travis Davison at Elite Mobile Services is your man. Elite Mobile Services has managed to keep my 97 F-150 on the road for 200K miles and counting. Travis is a professional; he is upfront and doesn't try to upsell services. I highly recommend Travis Davison at Elite Mobile Services and will continue to bring all my vehicles to him.

Nice guys, clean shop. Second time here for a smog.

— Google User Review

I rarely if ever give five stars, however I can say these guys honestly deserve it. Honest, reputable business. The owner is fair and goes the extra distance to help you out. In the beginning I was very skeptical as I have never had an honest mechanic who didn't try to make an extra buck off of you. Wether it's an unnecessary repair or an additional upgrade that you don't really need especially if it's a costly repair to begin with. I've had my engine replaced by them amd it's guaranteed by a factory warranty. Let's just say this was not a cheap repair at all. But they got me covered and continued to work with me afterwards with minor issues concerning misc parts. See Dave or Travis and tell them Mr. HALL speaks highly of them. You won't be disappointed.

— Google User Review

Very reasonable prices for smog! Fast and easy. Granted, no one else waiting, I was in and out in less than 20 min. I'll keep coming here for smog.

The team at Elite Smog and Auto is amazing! Honest, knowledgeable, and clean/ organized are the adjectives to best describe these guys. This place is like a hidden gem! All the reviews I read are true.

I came in with a unique situation. My 2008 Chevrolet 3500 conversion van kept having the check engine light come on. I was told by multiple shops that it could cost up to the thousand dollar range to repair since the engine code was from a mass air flow sensor or a problem with gas/ air mixture. So like most people I put it off until the time came where I needed to pass smog! That's when I came across these guys and man I'm glad I did. My first impression was they're just a smog company but I quickly learned that they are much more, a complete auto repair facility! Turns out it's essentially two businesses in the same building. I spoke with Travis, the owner, about my situation and he said he'd feel confident with his team diagnosing the problem. From there I keep all communication with Angelica, I believe the office manager, who was very professional and attentive to keep me in the loop while the van was being repaired. Literally after the van only being there for a few hours I get a call that it was ready for pickup! Total in parts and labor was less than $350! I was so excited and blown away!

I've worked in a mechanic shop before and this place is super clean and organized which in my opinion says volumes about their business! Additionally, the blunt honesty is much appreciated. I feel very confident and comfortable with their team and leaving anyone of my fleet of vehicles at this shop! They have earned a loyal customer!

Wonderful experience the first time I went in (during Covid-19) I had to get my smog checked prior to submitting my auto registration. I had just recently moved to this area, I was interested in coming to this location as they had great reviews. Dave greeted me very nicely, assured me that as a walk in my car would be taken care of quickly, it was and I kept them in mind when I needed another service done. I made an appointment they were able to me in the following day, their honesty and hard work still impresses me. Thank you to everyone at Elite Smog and Auto. I will continue a relationship there with my vehicle services.

I wouldn't trust my car with anyone else. Their prices are VERY reasonable and they truly go above and beyond! Dave, the office manager took the time to look up a recall for my Jeep - saving me tons of money in repairs. (When other shops were tacking it on!) Honestly, Elite Smog will treat you like family and give you the best quality service for your car and situation. Plus they have great free coffee! ;-) Thank you Elite Smog!!!

That's what kind of place this is thk u guys

My car wouldn't turn-over, so I called AAA, who provided a tow and recommended Elite Smog & Auto. About the same time the tow truck arrived I got a call from Dave at Elite Smog & Auto. Turns out AAA had emailed them and Dave called me to get an ETA and a preliminary diagnosis; that's when I knew this shop had customer service at the top of their priorities. Left my car at the shop and Dave called me a couple hours later with a thorough explanation of the problem and their process for verifying it was the only problem. He also noted a couple of items to keep an eye on, but not a big issue and no need for repairs at this time. My car was ready at the time Dave said it would be. Reasonable prices, credible and trustworthy, outstanding customer service. Elite Smog & Auto is aces!!

Elite has offered me unbeatable prices, especially compared to dealership quotes. They go above and beyond with service!
