We currently have an active thread about the difficulties passing the smog tests in California on an older car. We’ve had more than one of these.
We also had a recent thread that discussed the fact that many in California don’t bother to register their cars.
I wonder if in California many people buy used vehicles and don’t register them because they don’t want to contend with the California smog testing. Is California unintentionally promoting failure to register with its stringent emissions requirements combined with its lack registration enforcement?
What say you?
