Dave's Auto was recently selected by the State of California to become a Gold Shield Station. You may wonder what a gold Shield station is. It is a station that is allowed to service the customer's vehicle in all smog related repairs and tests. A gold shield station also provides the opportunity for those with financial hardship in need of a biannual registration renewal the possibility of up to $500.00 towards their repairs. This is called the Consumer Assistance Program (C.A.P.). (See the attached link www.smogcheck.ca.gov/ or pick up an application from the girls at Dave's).
By being a gold shield station
we are authorized to "inspect test only vehicles". This saves our customers a trip down the hill and we can keep the business in Ramona. We have two types of machines, the BAR 97 and the Dynamometer. The dynamometer allows us to smog enhanced vehicles.
