    hybrids and smog check

    just curious: how to perform a smog check on a hybrid? what's the "idle"? and what's the requirement for hybrid smog check in CA, i.e. when is the first year a smog check is required?

    The '03 Civic hybrid doesn't require a CA smog check since they don't know how to do it. I can't vouch for the other hybrids but I suspect they are similiar.

    huh? another money saving for hybrids? over the lifetime of a hybrid, we can save a few hundreds on smog check costs. consumer report should factor this into their calculation.

    Yes, if you look at the CA DMV website, it mentions that hybrids are exempt from smog checks.
