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!

Northshore Automotive has serviced and repaired my cars for 30 years. Scheduling is easy and their prices are fair. They offer full information ahead of time on any repair; I trust their honesty.

Classy auto repair shop, and they work on RV's. Good reputation for honest work, and fair prices.

I've taken all three of my '90s era vehicles into Art's shop on 21st Ave. SW just north of SW 356th in Federal Way and have always had good, honest, quick service from his professional crew of auto technicians. Their service convinced me to drop going to the dealership in Puyallup. I would highly recommend taking your older vehicle to Northshore Automotive & RV Repair any day.

All my vehicles have been service here for the past 20 years. Never failed never returned a vehicle for any reason. The BEST in Federal Way.

Just when I thought the folks at Northshore Automotive couldn't exceed my expectations--they did just that. It was a Friday, and I had a busy day scheduled. But then--car trouble. I called Art, who got me right in--and even had someone take me home while they evaluated the problem. 3 hours later, they were done. Part repaired. Someone came and picked me up--and I was able to complete my chores. Thanks, Northshore!!
