Our reputation as an expert general automotive repair shop continues to grow, as we are one of the only STAR stations in the Danville area that can perform checks and repairs. For 50+ years, we have been striving to provide customers with respectful treatment and quality repairs. As a family-owned business, we have instilled the strong values of honesty and integrity in all of our work over the years. Each of our ASE certified technicians is held to these standards, always offering customers fair prices for the best quality of work.


STAR stations are smog stations that meet the higher performance standards established by the Bureau of Automotive Repair. While some STAR stations are only licensed to perform tests, our San Ramon automotive shop is licensed to perform both tests and repairs. We know that California state law requires certain vehicles to have their inspection performed at a STAR station, which is why we are always prepared to help. By performing both tests and repairs for your vehicle, we are your one-stop shop for clearing your smog check.


Many individuals neglect their smog check or avoid having it repaired because of financial difficulties. This may cause them to lose their vehicle or pay severe fines in the future. At Walt’s Danville Service, we are excited to announce that there is a program that can help! The state of California has created the Consumer Assistance Program, designed to provide financial help at no future cost. If your vehicle fails the smog check, CAP may be able to supply the aid you need to clear it. You can see if you qualify for the program by completing a simple application form. When you are covered by the CAP, our shop will bill them directly, making it even more convenient for you. If you would like more information on the program or would like to see if you qualify, you can keep up to date with the Department of Consumer Affairs for California. We are available to answer any questions you have about your vehicle or smog check qualifications. You can contact us today to schedule an appointment.
