Arizona State Inspection Preparation & Repairs at Larry H. Miller Nissan Avondale

When your Nissan comes due for its AZ state inspection and emissions testing, we can help you get ready for it at Larry H. Miller Nissan Avondale. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) requires certain drivers have their vehicles inspected.  Emissions tests are performed by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) at one of their authorized testing centers.

Our service center at Larry H. Miller Nissan Avondale is not an authorized ADOT emissions test center. But, we can help by giving your Nissan exactly what it needs to pass its inspection.

When Do I Need to Get My Car Inspected?

The ADEQ requires routine testing at different points for different cases. But, most of our Nissan models will need inspection every other year. All cars from 1996 or newer, and weigh in at a gross vehicle weight ratio (GVWR) of 8,500 lbs. or fewer, must have their emissions test once every other year.

If you purchased a diesel car, truck, or van from 1967 onward, it will require an emissions test once a year. Likewise, if your business employs heavy-duty trucks weighing at GWVR of over 8.500 lbs., your emissions test comes due yearly.

How Does my Vehicle Pass Inspection? What Happens if it Fails?

In a typical AZ state inspection and emissions test, ADOT officials inspect your vehicle's onboard diagnostic system, tailpipe emissions, and other important aspects to determine if its emissions meet state-mandated requirements. If your vehicle passes, ADOT will supply you with proper documentation to complete your vehicle's registration.

If your car fails to pass, the state gives you a window of 60 days to complete all required repairs. Then, you will get another test.

How Can Larry H. Miller Nissan Avondale Help with Arizona State Inspections?
