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.

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.
