Used Car State Inspection Checklist

It's nice to know that when you buy a used car you won't have to worry about if it will pass inspection or not. At Two Car Guys ALL of our cars have passed both the safety inspection and emissions test from a certified inspection station. While we make it sound simple, take a look at what each of our cars goes through.
