Excellent service and work. Family business, friendly and effective. I have been looking for someone to take care of my car. I found them.

Honest, courteous, and dependable. Definitely competitive pricing. They even exceeded my expectations by providing transportation when my car needs to be worked on the next day. I have been a customer for more than 10 years and would definitely recommend this family-run business.

I am new to Cathedral City, moving here in July from Phoenix, Az. I was wanting to get an oil change on the vehicle I bought since moving here. I got a flyer in the mail advertising Valley Smog and Auto Repair. I thought I would give them a try since there were coupons attached to the flyer. So I was also saving money. Not only did I save money, but found an honest and reliable auto shop.

True professionals providing excellent service! I called at 10 am for a AAA inspection on a used car that a family member was interested in purchasing in Cat City. Some shops scoff at doing this for whatever reason, so I was kind of expecting the same attitude here but instead, I was greeted with professionalism and enthusiasm. Matt worked things out and had us squeezed in by 11am. The inspection was extremely thorough and they explained everything we had questions about. The inspection lasted about an hour, which was great, and we enjoyed their comfy waiting room with refreshment station. If I lived closer to the area, this would be my go-to shop. Thanks Matt and crew!

Good garage for almost all types of automobile repairs. I have been using this shop with all vehicles I had since 2004 and generally have received great customer service and good repairs.

I was leaving for an 7 hour trip north and the engine light came on. Made a u-turn on Gene Autry Trail and drove to valley smog and repair. Mike drove my car around the back and hooked up a scanner. Came back and said it was nothing to worry about. Thank goodness! Our trip north was a success. And, he did not charge me for the service.

Efficient and ethical. Matt is friendly and professional. I have had 3 of my cars smog checked or serviced here. Always quick wait time on oil change or smog. Highly recommended. One car is vintage Mercedes and they know their stuff.


The 1st few times I came here it was for headlight inspections/installment. Matt was GREAT! He took the time to explain everything; I dropped the car off & picked it up later in the day. This last time I came for the smog test & waited for it. Not knowing how long it would take I brought a Tom Petty bio to read. Trump happened to be on tv & this opened up a political discussion with Adam; Tracy joined in a few times...it was fun. I never did open the book. Bottom line...this place is fantastic, has great customer service and Matt, Tracy & Adam are very cool guys.


I've taken my car here a few times now, dropped it off and picked it up a few hours later....great customer service. Matt is over the top nice & explains everything. This last time I came in to do a smog test and waited for it. Not knowing how long it would take, I brought a Tom Petty bio to read while I waited. I never had to open the book. Trump was on tv and that opened up a very fun political discussion with Adam,,,,Tracy jumped in a few times too. My car passed the smog test & the price was perfect. But it's the place itself that's so cool! Matt, Tracy, Adam...you guys are fantastic!
