A state-certified emissions tester, Menlo Park Star Smog Station keeps cars compliant with eco-friendly limits in a simple process that takes approximately 20 minutes. While owners wait or use the time to communicate with their car telepathically, the technicians inspect and fix the exhaust system to keep it from spewing out pollutants at prohibited levels. The process works wonders for all vehicles, including older cars, newly acquired rides, and those running on diesel.
At M & R Automotive, a team of ASE-certified-and-licensed repair mechanics and smog technicians works to keep cars running smoothly and in-line with emissions standards. Their services include oil changes, tune-ups, and engine diagnostics, as well as State of California–licensed and STAR-certified smog inspections and repair.
In 1980, the traditional corner gas station became something of an endangered species, and people needed a place to get their oil changed. SpeeDee Oil Change and Auto Service's founder recognized the need, and created a business to exclusively deliver such services.?As the needs of customers evolved, SpeeDee introduced new services, starting with full brake inspections and tune-ups in 1994. Today, Speedee handles every kind of fluid that goes in a car, as well as scheduled maintenance and some of the most complex diagnostics and repairs.
Mae de la Calzada founded LadyParts Automotive Services based on a simple observation: "When a woman's car breaks down, lives break down." Recognizing the strain of being a wife, mother, professional, and friend all at once, de la Calzada saw a way to ease at least one burden women often face. This vision helped her to turn the intimidating ordeal of auto repair into an empowering experience.
Today, when women—or men—walk into LadyParts Automotive Services, they are greeted by automotive technicians who eschew technical jargon and instead speak in the simple, clear language that both cars and drivers instinctively understand.

To enhance each visitor's experience, the staff coordinates free shuttle service and furnishes a waiting area with free wireless Internet access, a 50-inch plasma-screen television, and well-maintained restrooms.
To further demonstrate its goal of turning auto repair into an empowering experience, LadyParts's team leads car-care clinics in which technicians demystify automobile maintenance. Such efforts have earned LadyParts Automotive Services consistent press, a vast network of loyal cars ready to do its bidding, and recognition that includes a 2011 Best Car Repair win from ABC7 The Bay Area A List, as well as a top-five finish in the 2012 race.
With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
