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 stopped using them a couple years ago when we got a new car, but got fed up with the dealer in Fife. I just did an oil change and it reminded me of how much better the service is at Northshore. Service was prompt, courteous and they weren't trying to sell me something else. It's a good place for service. I recommend them.

We love these guys! Art is a great guy, and we've been bringing our cars here since they opened. It takes a lot for me to trust someone with my car, but you don't have to worry at Northshore. They're honest, and good! We were his customers, even before he opened this shop, and we followed him here. Thank you Art 🙂

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!
