shopfrontWhether your vehicle is domestic or foreign, we want to be the shop that not only does your required repairs, but maintains your vehicle to the highest standards in the industry. We are an AAA award winning shop year after year. In 2005, we were awarded the Top Shop Award by AAA for Western Washington. We are also a NAPA AutoCare Facility. Our Technicians in partnership with NAPA, are constantly continuing to stay well educated with all types of vehicles (i.e. hybrids, foreign or domestic). We want to be your One Stop Auto Center.

Owners Mike and Barb Donahue have been in the automotive business since 1975 when they took over Westhill Shell In Kent, WA, then purchased Northshore Exxon in 1981 and Fife Exxon in 1990. In 1996, Mike decided to concentrate on the auto repair business and expanded into the RV repair business.

After purchasing property across the street from Northshore Exxon (presently Northshore 76), the current building was erected to accommodate cars, trucks and recreational vehicles. A lift was installed that will put a 37 foot motor home in the air for servicing. Mike Donahue, an ASE Master Technician, employs 3 technicians, all ASE certified.

Northshore Automotive & RV Repair has been a family owned and operated business serving the Federal Way and NE Tacoma area since 1981. From that year forward, our mission remains the same: to provide you and your family with only quality products, the needed work, done well, finished on time and at a fair price and with all work guaranteed.

Northshore Automotive and RV Repair is a state of the art auto repair facility for most domestic and foreign cars and trucks as well as most gas powered motor homes. We have a clean comfortable waiting area with a flat screen TV. Need to work while you wait? Enjoy our free high speed WIFI while you wait.

Barb and I would like to invite you to visit our facility. We have been helping our friends and neighbors in the Federal Way and NE Tacoma area since 1981. Give us a try!

I took my old work horse in that hadn't been running forever and I was fearful of the cost and if it could even be fixed. Art was great! and the price was right. I have my old work horse back at work hauling landscaping and remodeling items! No more trips to the dealer for our other cars either I have found our favorite Automotive shop at Northshore!

Northshore Automotive has always been fair and honest with me. Art explains problems, quotes a price and charges what he says. He has been more than great with me every time. I have been going there for more then 10 years. Recommend them highly.

Amazing customer service Jason beef frank really helped me out when I needed my diesel powered RV motor swapped with a 1.8 Miata motor with a welded diff. Jason told me that now with a smaller motor it creates four times the amount of power the OEM motor produced.this is definitely the kind of restaurant that I would recommend to all my friends

First time I had a repair done on my 2003 Toyota Accord at this automotive shop. Very friendly, professional, and courteous staff. Repair costs were competitive with other repair shops. I will do business with them again. Thanks.
