Went in just as they opened, they were already doing a smog when I pulled in. 20 minutes later I was on my way home. Ultrafast when empty but still pretty fast when they are busier.

I had to replace a power window on my car; they provided me with a choice between an aftermarket part and the OEM version, so I could make an informed decision. Both were expensive, but the aftermarket option matched my budget and my needs. P.S. We have been bringing our cars to Santa Monica Motors for repairs and smog checks for many years. They are always professional and courteous. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful car service place with excellent technicians. I needed a smog check and they were recommended by the DMV website...they were efficient and had a nice waiting area which did not take long at all. The price is higher than other places in the area but you are given the extra perks that other places do not offer. It is great if you need to get service done to your car that will take longer than 30 minutes to enjoy all the benefits.
