A cave stands near the entrance of Aqua Auto Spa. Cars approach slowly, their drivers peering into its dark recesses. Inside, soft cloths burnish vehicle exteriors in a matter of minutes, making them as a shiny as the sun’s mouthful of braces. All washes come with free use of the self-serve vacuums, plus complimentary glass cleaner, wipe-down towels, and dash dusters. Nearby, an industrial washing basin brims with towels, brushes, and grooming shears. Here, dog owners can lather pups’ fur with canine shampoo or style it into a handsome pompadour.

For the full-service Triple Shine wash at Grandview Auto Wash, automatic coupe cleansers buff and polish sullied exteriors before a vacuum-wielding hominid sweeps through the inside. Crusty cars cruise through the shower, where eco-friendly suds shimmy across wheels, windows, underbodies, and hood gargoyles, removing unsightly soils. Expunged exteriors shine like a bronze statue of a socialite's dog after a clear-coat protectant and triple clear-coat polish. Finally, a car concierge wraps wet wagons with a terry-cloth embrace until they are cozy and dry, then hops inside to wipe down consoles, swab windows, and quietly propose new bumper-sticker slogans.
When overcast winter skies and spring storm clouds clear, the roads begin to glisten with freshly washed cars. With 12 locations across Missouri and Kansas, there’s a pretty good chance that many of those vehicles visited a Squeaky Clean Car Wash. Whether it’s a soft-cloth tunnel car wash or a touchless, in-bay spraydown, rides leave dirt-free in a matter of minutes. Every wash comes with complimentary access to a self-serve vacuum, and select locations allow patrons to take matters into their own hands at self-serve washing bays. At their Quick Lube locations, Squeaky Clean flushes out sludgy fluids and also invites pet owners to hose down canines and pet mammoths preserved in tar at self-serve dog washes.
Lee's Summit Mitsubishi’s service-department techs perform mechanical magic beneath hoods and undercarriages to keep Mitsubishis and autos of all makes and models running smoothly. Body-shop staffers free car bodies from dents and dings, and well as rotate tires, align brakes, and inspect vehicles for further problems by tapping them with a knee hammer to check their reflexes. Out on the sales floor, friendly sales people introduce visitors to new and used models of Mazdas, Mitsubishis, Volkswagens, and other automobiles.
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.
