Trouble Passing Emmissions?

The Illinois EPA issues a Repair Shop Report Card on an automotive repair center’s ability to diagnose and repair cars that have failed the emissions test. They are assigned a letter grade based upon their success rate. In order to qualify a shop must have performed at least 5 or more emission repairs during the last six months. Visit the EPA website to check our current standings.
