Since 1993, the ASE-certified technicians at Smog Mart Plus have kept vehicles operating smoothly with a full-service repair shop and California-licensed smog testing services.

Sac Town Pros' resident technicians repair chipped windshields with premium resin tested and used for its strength, clarity, and longevity. As technicians fill in each chip or crack with resin, a plunger-injection system sucks out air to create a vacuum-tight seal that cures within 30 minutes. Airtight fillers ensure a more durable windshield and prevent water from leaking through the glass or government secrets from leaking out of the glove compartment. The eco-friendly process also comes with the added benefit of keeping laminated glass out of landfills. Following the repair, most chips are less noticeable, though some retain a visible outline and serve as a constant reminder to avoid driving through the running of the bulls again. If the damage is too far-gone, customers can put their Groupons toward fresh panes of glass starting at $150.

To make maintenance as easy as possible, they also email or text reminders, recommendations, and recipes for making healthy dishes for your car at home.

The company's specialists also install custom sound systems, video screens, and alarm systems.
With more than 30 years in business, the team at Premier Car Wash have gotten their process down to an environmentally friendly science. They use only green products from Blue Coral, and rinse cars clean with recycled water they treat themselves. And because their teams can complete a wash in around 20 minutes, they conserve about half the amount of water that's used during at-home washes in driveways or Buick-sized bath tubs. Though their service is speedy, it does not sacrifice quality—every wash unites both exterior and interior treatment, including vacuuming, a wipe-down of the dash, and an undercarriage rinse. Customers can also choose to add extras such as sealant and rust inhibitors, or detailing services that include carpet shampooing, and leather treatment.
