With 15 years in the automobile industry under their toolbelts, the proprietors of 2K Performance know how to run an auto repair shop right. First, they fix and maintain just about everything: fuel pumps, fluids, filters, cooling systems, exhaust and emissions, front and rear differentials, and complete engine rebuilds. Because of the technicians' comprehensive knowledge of all things on wheels, customers never have to take their rides elsewhere for more extensive upkeep. In addition to their basic and comprehensive services, the team at 2K Performance also offers an array of soup-up services to transform buggies into rubber burners, and the shop is adjoined to SacTown Pros for those seeking new windows and hi-fi sound systems.
Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, can trace their auto-repair roots back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop—just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with more than 30 locations, dozens of employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.
Committed to keeping cars clean with two-thirds less water than traditional or home washes, Harv's Car Wash delivers eco-friendly car washing that earned the company awards from the Bay Area Green Business Program and Sacramento Area Sustainable Businesses.

Similarly, the car wash’s brushes and turbo jet dryers are designed to circumvent the finish-damaging effects of home hand washing. Shoe shines are available on premises for customers waiting for their cars.
The team members at Airo Auto Glass take an environmentally conservative approach to windshield problems, attempting to repair cracks rather than replacing the glass entirely and adding to the bulk of area landfills. They mend cracks and chips without replacing the factory seal, which improves the structural integrity of the windshield and can prevent the issue from spreading. A high-optical-clarity resin seals repairs, preventing discoloration ; it also aids in protection from leaks of rainwater and off-key radio sing-alongs. The staff will perform mobile services within 25 miles of its headquarters at no additional charg e.
