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.
Wielding a spray bottle, the eco-friendly detailers spritz engines and tires with a biodegradable degreaser before wiping down exteriors with soft micro fiber chamois cloths for a stellar hand wash. These seemingly small touches help K & C Auto Detailing Solutions contribute to greener, more eco-friendly car-detailing methods.
Conveniently located in the Goodyear Building at 75th and Metcalf, the team scours cars during detailing sessions, sweeping dust from seats with shampoo cloths, stripping away bugs and tar, and shining exteriors with electric buffers. They also go mobile, and provide lot washing services to dealerships and companies with fleets of vehicles. Committed to environmentally sound cleaning methods, they contribute green services and products to local car-wash fundraisers and use Shamerrific cleaning products to wash cars without chemicals or the sound of Mother Nature's disapproving sighs. The team also offers "wash while you work" services that allow employees to continue working at their desks while K & C detailers polish and cleanse grime from soiled cars.
Colorado’s cluster of Midas Auto Service Experts shops have operated under the same local ownership for 30 years. At each location, ASE-certified service technicians care for vehicles in all kinds of capacities, from factory scheduled maintenance measures to extensive repairs on brake systems and engines. With each service, the team exerts the same advanced expertise that has made Midas a recognized industry name since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago at the dawn of time. The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
What started as a single gas station and garage in 1963 has since expanded into an eight-location tire-and-repair shop, adept at handling all things automotive. Burnett Automotive welcomes drivers across Johnson County and Manhattan to stop in for preventative maintenance services, including brake inspections and fluid flushes. A routine oil change include a thorough inspection of the battery and fluid levels, and an examination of the trunk for any hitchhiking spare tires. Beyond service jobs, Burnett Automotive also outfits rides with brand-new tires and equips drivers with a bevy of tire information, including maintenance and safety.
The detail-oriented crew at Splish Splash Auto Wash tends to automobiles by blasting their underbodies and shining their tires by hand. In addition to cleaning, they provide detailing services and apply rust inhibitors and surface protectants, which help cars avoid potential future damages and the often-unkind words of children.
For more than 50 years, the skilled technicians at Fry’s Car Care have primped and preened trusty petrol steeds for maximum pavement-pounding performance. During the full-service oil change, an ASE-certified mechanic will replace old, worn-out engine blood with up to five quarts of new Mobil oil and switch out grimy filters with standard, unsullied substitutions. Afterward, the technician will rotate tread-worn tires, which will come in handy when drag racing a neighboring child’s Power Wheel. The appointment culminates with a thorough safety inspection—certifying that each four-wheeled locomotive is healthy and able to transport all passengers and back-seat drivers. Call ahead to schedule your car’s next springtime engine cleaning.
