    4 Years Until Smog?????

    I have heard from a lot of people that after you buy a new 2002 car, you don't have to smog it for 4 years? I thought you had to smog it every two years? Is this true everywhere in the US? In California? HELP???

    Don't know if this is a fed law or just state-dependant, but in Colorado we don't have to smog until a vehicle is four years old, and then it's every two years after that.

    I do know that if you fail your smog test, they give you a list of approved auto mechanics. If the approved shop signs a ticket saying that the problem cannot be corrected for under a certain limit (something like $500), then the smog facility will waive your vehicle. This is really intended to assist people with older cars I believe.
