Expert Emissions Repair in Phoenix, AZ
Vehicles are a major contributor to ground level air pollution. In a large city like Phoenix, it’s especially important to counter the effects of dangerous automotive pollutants to help maintain air quality. To do this, the state of Arizona has implemented an emissions program with the goal of monitoring and reducing the amounts of volatile compounds cars and trucks produce. Specifically, all residents of the greater Phoenix area and those who regularly commute into Phoenix for work or school are required to have their 1967 or newer vehicles pass an emissions test. At Bryden’s Auto Service, we handle emissions repairs for Phoenix drivers to ensure the vehicles we service pass the Phoenix emissions test with flying colors.
Passing an Emissions Test in Phoenix
In Phoenix, vehicles that are model year 1967 and newer and more than five years old require emissions testing for registration and reregistration. This includes gas and diesel-fueled vehicles, as well as alternative fuel, flexible fuel (E85), and hybrid vehicles. Newer vehicles are exempt for the first five years of registration, and, after that, you’ll need to have an emissions test every one or two years, depending on your vehicle’s year and weight. If you live in Phoenix, you must have your vehicle tested in the Phoenix area, but you may use any emissions inspection station. If your vehicle fails to pass an emissions inspection, you’ll need emissions repairs and a retest before you may register your vehicle.
