Although Sallas Auto Repair began as a small, two-bay repair shop, owner and ASE-certified master technician Nick Sallas already had enough experience to fill a multifloor garage. Nick's journey through the automotive industry led him through the service centers of General Motors and Honda and included a 10-year ascension up Goodyear's training programs. He opened Sallas Auto Repair in 1993, fusing his experience with his passion for repairing vehicles and saving customers money. More than 20 years later, he and his wife have expanded the small garage into two AAA-approved facilities stocked with 15 service bays and 15 skilled and certified employees.
The staff at both Sallas Auto Repair locations perform bumper to bumper services, including oil changes, preventative maintenance, and most all repairs. Services and repairs in the authorized Napa Auto Care Centers are backed with 24-month and 24,000-mile warranties. During repairs guests relax in waiting rooms stocked with computer stations and free WiFi or take advantage of complimentary rides home should their car beg to spend the night. Sallas’ commitment to cars is rivaled only by its commitment to the community; the shop has supported numerous organizations ranging from the US military to local athletic programs.

Crystal Clean Car Wash shines and polishes all surfaces of vehicles with high-pressure sprays, foaming presoaks and wheel cleaner, and interior vacuuming at two automatic stations and eight self-service stations. While giving auto bodies a glistening sheen, the wash's extensive filtration system channels all wastewater into a sand-oil separator for future treatment rather than sullying the earth with untreated surfactants and needless erosion. Teams of dedicated detailers meticulously purify the inside and outside of cars, trucks, and SUVs, and the Fleet Program allows squadrons of delivery trucks, company cars, and rented dirigibles to freshen up in the car-wash bays. In addition to restoring paint jobs and removing sheets of dust and grime, Crystal Clean Car Wash supports the efforts of local nonprofits and charities by making its facility available for fundraising car washes.
