My 2 cents - never take your car to get inspected anywhere they can sell you something. There are stations that do only inspections and sell nothing else. Not sure if these are everywhere in Texas, but we have a few in the North Dallas suburbs and in Lewisville that are green and white facilities that look like former gas stations. Everyone else makes a bad habit of not passing you unless you buy something like new belts, wipers, etc.
In my experience,most of the gas station owners in Houston are dishonest in terms of state inspection. They want to see your car is failing emission test and force you to replace lot of stuff in your car for a hefty amount of money. I believe state inspection is another name for earning money for gas station owners.
I had a guy inspect my car and he stuck something in the gas cap tester to make it pass. I didn't say anything. I'm sure that's totally illegal somehow. That's the type of shop I want to go to. Used to live in Frisco, TX
