Do not, ever, under any circumstances visit a chain auto repair place. They're all crooks. Should be 75 bucks.

That's high but not ridiculously high. 80 is probably average. Would help if you mentioned a more specific area

North, west, or east of city , that’s where I travel around mostly for work stuff

How is spending $100 a lot of money for an inspection? About an hour of labor until you get a car into a garage, inspect it, and get it out?

Tom's Fleet Service in Baldwin. Its not all that much cheaper than that through, maybe in the $80 range I think.

Protech Auto in Bellevue. My wife and I have been taking our cars there for years. Can't remember what their prices for inspection emission are though.

They do great work.

This is purely a question… but doesn’t the state regulate the price of the stickers and service for state inspection?

I paid 72.76 last year at the Goodyear in Monroeville.

80 with state and emission and something else I can’t remember. Bellasarios in Oakland. Idk if I really recommend but it’s cheap. My exhaust manifold had a leak and he said my car was fine after “taking it for a drive.” My car clearly sounded like an air propellor plane about to fly away. Homers in homestead fixed it right up for me and now my car is quiet again.

That’s going to be close to the price everywhere

I paid about $80 all told the other day for this service at our family’s long-time mechanic. I don’t think you’re going to get much cheaper than that.

The only way to avoid getting scammed by the auto industry is to sell your car.


Upper_lowerclass t1_jec9bo2 wrote

Or register it in a state that do that bs


rangel01 t1_jec9k33 wrote

It would still be cheaper to take the bus


Upper_lowerclass t1_jecab5n wrote

To an extent, unless you're gonna factor in the bus ride and transfer times, since time is money gotta convert that, If taking the bus adds 2-3 hours extra in a commute I would say no, especially when you gotta leave even earlier to even catch it.


rangel01 t1_jecatkp wrote

Damn where the hell are people going that the bus adds 2 hours 😭, and meh you can get a ton of work done on the bus that you can't while driving. I like reading tho. And not having to drive, so if it did take 2 hours more I'd still like it better


Upper_lowerclass t1_jeccgom wrote

I don't, that's why I live 183 days in Florida so I don't need pa license, tags, or inspections 🤠

I only craft and cook for work. So hard to do cooking not in the kitchens.

Lou Iezzi, definitely less than $100, maybe $70

Was in a bind and used Mellon St Garage once and it was $80


Virtual_Smoke_4252 t1_jebo7a6 wrote

kepples garage up near dorseyville/allison park is very cheap, i cant remember how much, but that's where i always went when i lived up there.


Ayy_Ayy_Ayy t1_jecyi5b wrote

Dravosburg Truck Stop & Auto Repair. Lil Al is amazing and I think he charges me like $70


Universewildflower t1_jef129a wrote

I got mine for $48 at the Firestone in Banksville. It was my first time getting a car inspected since I lived in a state that didn’t require inspections. I was warned it would be around $80-100 and to my surprise it was only $48.

Just go to your local mechanic how hard is this

Don’t want to get ripped. Money doesn’t grow on trees for everyone 🤷‍♂️

Watch out driving through Munhall as they are cracking down on everything. I haven't bothered getting my car inspected for two years and Munhall is the only place that pulled me over.


burritoace t1_jeb3gvj wrote

You should get your car inspected like the rest of us

What makes you so special you think you should get out of doing it when the vast majority of other people oblige even if they don't like it?
