I had my Dodge Ramcharger inspected the other day and found out that in N.C. if it is '95 or older, it doesn't have to pass emissions anymore. The inspection went from $30 to $9.10. Finally a step in the right direction.
Just thought I would pass it along

thats a new upcomming law in N.Y. also. Its making the dyno odsolete. all thanks to OBD II. basically as long as they read your computer and you have no light you pass. everything else without OBD II gets safety check. ;-D

That doesn't make sense. The new vehicles are more efficient than the older ones so it would make more sense that you got that back-wards, either that or the people running the emissions test are smoking crack. The longer a vehicle has been on the road the less efficient it becomes especially if it's owned by your typical driver who doesn't maintain their vehicle.

Dabgum !!!!!!!

I may just immigrate out of Ontario into another province or North Carolina or even New York

What a great way to help the average schmuck whose struggling to even keep a car on the road.

Ontario has gone WAY past what's reasonable. They are actually setting stricter standards than when a car/truck left the factory NEW !

WTF do they think these vehicles have been doing the last 20 years ? Morphing into more advanced, cleaner burning vehicles, or carrying some poor sod to work each day reliably ?!

Sheets sake ! British Columbia has reasonable standards that you could actually pass and that take into consideration the wear and tear on an older vehicle.

I cannot understand Canadian governments. They want the working poor to work for them, but they have almost no public transport system AND they're taking any affordable vehicle off the road by emission sniffing them to death.

TG my 86 is grandfathered in under the 20 year limit ! Sounds like NC and New York state have finally seen the light by only testing OBD-II equipped vehicles.

At least they tell the owner exactly what is wrong with them. Older vehicles could drain a guy's wallet dry trying to diagnose a problem.

I swear if that "Dullard McGuilty" brings the proposed new emission laws into Ontario I'm gonna leave ! What a F#@&ing moron !

Maybe part of the reason is also that the pre-OBD-II vehicles are over 10 years old so they're starting to fall apart and they're just trying to help out the average Joe by not making him replace his faulty, falling apart emissions system. :histerica Yeah right, that's definitely not the reason.

Maybe someone challenged it and beat it in court ?

We need lawyers like that up here !

In VA they check the exhaust but most shops don't use a sniff checker so you are alright unless it is a blatant leak.

Old news:goodfinge Of course my dad is an NC inspector, so I knew a long time ago. FYI, vehicles 35 years and older do NOT require an inspection at all.

I advise New York. Nothing but rich dumbasses in the NC legislative branch (or so it seems) and NCDOT, not to mention bad drivers.....ranked #1 worst drivers in the nation a few years back. Nothing better than that kind of a record to distinguish yourself, eh?

Raliegh NC when it snows posts tow trucks at the bridges so that when, not if, a wreck occurs they don't have long to wait. When I worked there I told my customer that they didn't need to wory bout my getting in when bad weather hit but I would be there at 12 and leave at 10 cause I wasn't gonna drive while they were on the road. In the VA mtns they seal off the tailpipe with a rag and if they think it needs a cat sometimes look under to see if one is present.

Neither does MI. But the bad thing about MI(besides winter road salt) is we're a No-Fault state so our car insurance is rediculously high. My premiums tripled when I got out of the service and moved back here from VA.

Interesting, so is NC and my insurance isn't all that bad. My F150 is still under my dad's name and I pay $27/month (I need to get that corrected). The Jeep is in my name and pay about $67 every couple months.
