Meet the Owner
A1 Smog was founded on January 1st of 2013 by Jon Epling. We are a family-owned business and have been providing automotive services to the Davis, Woodland, Dixon, Winters, and multiple Sacramento communities for many years now. What started as a smog station has now evolved into a full automotive repair shop offering an array of services to our customers with over 30 years of combined experience.
Jon’s automotive journey began many years ago. Starting out as a car enthusiast, he decided to follow his passion by enrolling in several automotive courses at his local community college, to improve his skills as an automotive technician. While attending college courses at night, Jon also attended trade school during the day to further his ability, in hopes of one day fulfilling his dream of owning his own automotive business. As time passed, Jon attained multiple ASE certifications as well as becoming a state certified smog check inspector and repair technician. With dedication, patience and hard work, Jon has fulfilled his dream.
