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.

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 failed my emissions test and came in to this office. Arthur was most helpful, I knew what my problem was on my car and he didn't try to upsale or talk me into getting anything else done. Car is great and I passed my emissions. Service was fast as well.

I have brought 3 cars to Northshore for repair. A 2000 BMW 3 series, a 2004 Ford Truck, and many years ago an old cadillac. It seems like no matter what car they work on they do a good job and I have been impressed with how quickly the do the work. Art has a gruff exterior but is always pleasant to work with an is honest with me. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

My truck was dead when I had it towed there. They diagnosed the issue promptly and I was back on the road the next day and the fee was reasonable. Will definitely return.
